Aberdeen won’t want a repeat of their last result here after a 1-0 Premiership defeat last time out to Celtic.
In that match, Aberdeen managed 36% possession and 9 attempts on goal with 2 on target. For their opponents, Celtic got 12 attempts on goal with 3 on target. David Turnbull (14') scored for Celtic.
A common theme in more recent Aberdeen games is the number of nil scores.
From their previous 6 matches leading up to this one, in as many as 6 of them a bet on both teams scoring would've lost. Such a pattern might not follow through into this match, of course.
Their past results show that Aberdeen:
- are unbeaten in the league by Kilmarnock in their previous 8 games. A long run without a loss.
- are without a home win in the past 2 matches in the league.
After a loss in their previous game against Rangers in Premiership competition, Kilmarnock will be aiming to make amends here.
In that match, Kilmarnock managed 37% possession and 2 shots at goal with 0 of them on target. On the other side, Rangers got 13 attempts at goal with 6 of them on target. Ryan Jack (38') was the scorer for Rangers.
The numbers tell their own story, and Kilmarnock have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, with opponents netting 13 goals in all. In defence, Killie have not been doing too well.
Looking at their past form shows that Kilmarnock:
- have not emerged victorious against Aberdeen when having played them away from home in the previous 3 league matches.
- are without a win away from home in their last 4 matches in the league.

Team News: Kilmarnock
Thanks to a largely available squad, there is only a single fitness problem for the Kilmarnock gaffer Tommy Wright to be concerned with. Stuart Findlay (Ankle Injury) misses out for this game.
Our assessment is that Aberdeen should really fashion enough chances to find the net more than once while possibly not conceding when they play Kilmarnock, who might well find it difficult finding the net themselves.
