All Ross County v Aberdeen match predictions, user poll and stats are shown below - as well as the best betting odds.
Ross County will be hoping to bounce back here after a 3-1 Premiership losing effort in their last game against Livingston.
In that game, Ross County had 49% possession and 6 shots on goal with 2 on target. The scorer for Ross County was Charlie Lakin (28'). For their opponents, Livingston had 12 attempts on goal with 4 on target. Scott Robinson (9'), Alan Forrest (81') and Jack Hamilton (91') scored for Livingston.
Fewer than three goals per match were seen in 5 of the past 6 meetings where Ross County have been participants. In terms of the goal distribution in that period, opposing sides scored a total of 10 while The Staggies got themselves 4. That trend might not be continued into this next game, of course.
Analysis of their past results shows that Ross County:
- haven't beaten Aberdeen in their last 2 matches in the league.
- are without a home win in the past 10 matches in the league. It's been disappointing.
After a losing effort in their last game against Rangers in Premiership action, Aberdeen and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
In that match, Aberdeen had 20% possession and 4 attempts at goal with 2 on target. The only player to score for Aberdeen was Matty Kennedy (67'). Rangers got 17 shots at goal with 7 on target. Alfredo Morelos (32', 50') scored for Rangers.
A succession of resolute performances from the Aberdeen defence has resulted in their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 3 from their last 6 fixtures in total. During the same time, the number of goals that they have scored themselves is 7.
Going into this contest, Aberdeen have not been beaten by Ross County when having played them away from home in the previous 4 matches in the league. Travelling fans have really enjoyed these clashes.

Team News: Ross County
Tom Grivosti (Hamstring Injury) and Blair Spittal (Hamstring Injury) will not be able to play for Ross County gaffer John Hughes.
Team News: Aberdeen
Due to a mostly full-strength group, there is just the sole fitness problem for the Aberdeen gaffer Derek McInnes to be concerned with. Michael Devlin (Ankle Surgery) misses out for this game.
We’re of the view that Ross County might well have a job on their hands to get anything against this Aberdeen lineup who should be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
We’re therefore seeing a narrow 0-1 win for Aberdeen when the full-time whistle blows.
We’ll see what happens.
