Low-scoring affair looks likely in Pittodrie clash

Aberdeen and Hearts may fight out stalemate

BT Sport 2, 7.45pm Friday

Aberdeen and Hearts could cancel each other out in what looks set to be a tight encounter at Pittodrie.

Derek McInnes's side made some amends for their William Hill Scottish Cup semi-final defeat earlier this month with a fine 2-0 win at Kilmarnock, while Hearts wilted at Ibrox in a 2-1 defeat to Rangers last week.

Although Hearts comfortably beat the Dons at Tynecastle 2-0 a few weeks ago, they have consistently failed to travel well.

However, you couldn't back an Aberdeen side at odds-on, given they have failed to score against Hearts this season. Expect a niggly, low-scoring affair.

Recommendation
Draw
1pt 14-5 Betfair
