All Aberdeen v Rangers match predictions, user poll and stats are shown below including the latest game odds.
Aberdeen will be looking to improve on their last outing here following the 6-0 Premiership defeat in their last game at the hands of Celtic.
In that game, Aberdeen managed 22% possession and 3 shots on goal with 1 of them on target. On the other side, Celtic got 21 attempts on goal with 10 of them on target. Hyun-jun Yang (9'), Kyogo Furuhashi (16'), Luis Palma (77'), David Turnbull (92') and Hyeon-gyu Oh (96', 99') scored for Celtic.
It’s not been often in recent times that Aberdeen have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that Aberdeen have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, leaking 15 goals on the way.
Rangers go into this meeting following a 0-2 Premiership win as they beat Livingston in their last match.
In that match, Rangers managed 68% possession and 18 attempts at goal with 6 on target. For Rangers, the scorers were Cyriel Dessers (26') and James Tavernier (75'). On the other side, Livingston got 4 attempts on goal with 1 on target.
A succession of steadfast displays by the Rangers defensive unit has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at 3 from their past 6 outings in total. Over that same period, their own attack force has managed to score 14. It will be interesting to see if that trend will end up being sustained here.
Coming into this clash, Rangers haven't been defeated in their previous 5 league matches away from home.

Team News: Aberdeen
The Aberdeen boss Barry Robson will be happy not to have any fitness worries to speak of coming into this game thanks to a fully healthy squad available to select from.
It seems likely that The Dons will probably opt for a 5-4-1 formation with Kelle Roos, Nicky Devlin, Stefan Gartenmann, Slobodan Rubezic, Richard Jensen, Jack Mackenzie, Dante Polvara, Leighton Clarkson, Graeme Shinnie, Jonathan Hayes and Bojan Miovski.
Team News: Rangers
Due to a fully injury-free squad available for selection, the Rangers manager Philippe Clement has no fitness concerns at all before this match.
It’s our belief that The Gers seem most likely to begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 formation, giving starts to Jack Butland, James Tavernier, Connor Goldson, Leon Balogun, Borna Barisic, John Lundstram, Ryan Jack, Todd Cantwell, Tom Lawrence, Abdallah Sima and Cyriel Dessers.
When taking all factors into account, Rangers will, in all probability, see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities.
At the same time, Aberdeen will be up against it to make a breakthrough although we think that they will probably end up pulling one back during this clash, too.
Our tip is for a comfortable 1-3 winning margin for Rangers come full-time.
