Aberdeen form and stats

The story so far for the visiting team on their Premiership travels is 4 wins, 6 draws and 4 defeats. Aberdeen seem to be suffering from homesickness with two consecutive losses away. Third time lucky?

Aberdeen had fun at their own home (Celtic Park) last time out, beating Kilmarnock 1-0. Callum Hendry scored. A 0-1 defeat away at Celtic before that.

World class coaching! That was the thoughts of manager D. McInnes when Callum Hendry scored the winning goal after coming on as a substitute in the 20th minute.

Many goals are not expected from the visiting Aberdeen as they have only managed to score 10 times from 14 away games in the league. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 0 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. They concede less than a goal on average per away game (13 so far).

Head 2 Head

These teams' last encounter with each other was the Celtic - Aberdeen 1-0 earlier this season. Last ten meetings between the teams: Celtic won eight, Aberdeen won zero and two draws. seven games with over 2,5 goals, three matches with two goals or less.
