- haven't been defeated in their previous 3 league matches at home.
Rangers will go into this clash following a 2-0 Premiership win vs St Mirren in their previous game.

Over the course of their previous half-dozen outings, Rangers have amassed a total of 11 goals. Rangers have also scored in every single one of those games. During those fixtures, they’ve seen 1 goal go against them. That trend won’t necessarily be carried forward into this game, of course.
Taking a look at their past results, Rangers:
- have not been beaten by Aberdeen in away games against them for the last 8 league matches. An amazing record against them.
- are undefeated in their last 8 league matches away from home. Impressive, to say the least.
Head to head
Checking on past results between these clubs stretching back to 01/02/2020 reveals that these fixtures have not been good ones for Aberdeen. They’ve not been able to register any victories whatsoever while Rangers have maintained the edge over them, getting wins in 67 per cent of those games played.
A total of 16 goals were scored between the two sides throughout the course of those matches, with 3 for The Dons and 13 created by The Gers. That’s an average goals per game of 2.67.
Team News: Aberdeen
Regarding absentees, there’s just the lone fitness concern for the Aberdeen manager Stephen Glass to be concerned with thanks to an almost full-strength set of players. Michael Devlin (Ankle Surgery) won’t play.
In our view, The Dons will probably kick off with a 4-3-3 formation for this one, handing starts to Joe Lewis, Calvin Ramsay, Ross McCrorie, David Bates, Jonathan Hayes, Funso Ojo, Lewis Ferguson, Teddy Jenks, Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, Christian Ramirez and Ryan Hedges.
Team News: Rangers
Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst has multiple availability issues to deal with. Filip Helander (Knee Surgery), Nnamdi Ofoborh (Heart Condition) and Leon Balogun (Unknown Injury) are not able to play.
From our viewpoint, The Gers seem likely to make use of a 4-3-3 lineup by sending out Allan McGregor, James Tavernier, Connor Goldson, Calvin Bassey, Borna Barisic, John Lundstram, Glen Kamara, Ianis Hagi, Fashion Sakala, Alfredo Morelos and Ryan Kent.
In this game, Aberdeen will likely be able to breach the defence of this Rangers team, although just one goal might not be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We are therefore anticipating a close game with a 1-2 winning score for Rangers by the conclusion of the game. Should be a good one.
