Back Motherwell at a nice price to beat Dons

Motherwell beat Aberdeen 3-0 in the Betfred Cup earlier this season

Motherwell completely took apart an awful Aberdeen side in Thursday's Betfred Cup quarter-final and there's no reason to suggest they won't do it again.

The Fir Park side took advantage of Derek McInnes' increasingly bizarre tactical tombola which has seen him inexplicably drop defenders and change tactics, with the result that his players look bemused and befuddled.

It's anyone guess who will come out to start this match, but you can be sure they will be bullied by a physical Well side who won every challenge, every header and every second ball on Thursday.

Louis Moult ran amok against powderpuff defending from the Dons and 7-2 seems a big price for a repeat performance against the Pittodrie side, who have been poor for weeks.
