Our Dundee v Motherwell predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below including the latest game odds.
Dundee will be wanting a better result here after the 2-4 Premiership defeat in their last game at the hands of Celtic.
In that match, Dundee had 19% possession and 5 shots on goal with 4 on target. For Dundee, the goalscorers were Danny Mullen (23') and Lee Ashcroft (67'). On the other side, Celtic got 24 shots on goal with 7 of them on target. Jota (8', 47') and Kyogo Furuhashi (19', 50') scored for Celtic.
It has been seldom in recent games where Dundee have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that Dundee have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 14 goals along the way.
Looking at their past form shows that Dundee:
- have left without a victory over Motherwell in their last 9 matches in the league.
- are without a win at home for the past 2 league games.
Motherwell will go into the game following on from a 2-0 Premiership win versus Hearts in their last match.
In that match, Motherwell had 47% possession and 20 attempts at goal with 7 of them on target. For Motherwell, goals were scored by Connor Shields (23') and Ricki Lamie (66'). At the other end, Hearts had 6 shots on goal with 4 of them on target.
Showing their involvement in productive matches, we’ve had goals 20 times in the last 6 matches in which Motherwell have taken to the field, making it a mean average of 3.33 goals for each meeting. Opposition teams have got 12 from this total. Such a pattern isn’t assured to be sustained into this match, however.
Heading into this fixture, Motherwell remain undefeated by Dundee when having played them away from home in the previous 4 matches in the league. A solid away record against them.
