Dundee United vs Ayr (By: Stanioooo)
Dundee United will host Ayr United in a battle for the leading position in the Scottish Championship.
Dundee United are 3rd in the ranking, while Ayr are the leaders, but still the difference between them is too small- only 3 points, and after this round they can be pretty equad in the table. Dundee play successfully against Ayr in their last 5 matches since 2016- 2 home wins with 2:1 and 3:0, combined with a win, draw and loss as visitors. The main problem is that Ayr were not so good like they are during this campaign and that's the reason they took first win against Dundee at home with 2:0 in October.
Dundee are quality team especially playing at home, but still they can be broken and to be part of goal shows.In the last home game they beat for example Alloa with 4:2, while about two months earlier they lost at home so badly with 1:5 against Ross County. They have the offensive power to punish the leaders at home, but are they good enough defensively to stop the opponent's forwards.
Ayr United are a team which earned a promotion from League 1 during the previous season after finishing 1st in the table. Now they are the leaders again and the main candidate maybe for another promotion amongst the best in Scotland. They are with average performances when we talk about visits: 4 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses with GD 10:8. They know how to score goals even against the other best teams in the league, so a clean sheet for Dundee United would be something like a miracle tonight.
I expect goal/s in both nets and to see two teams eager for the win and the max points. It's almost impossible to say Dundee are the strong favourites here, because Ayr are much better team in comparison with 2016 and the start of 2017, when they faced Dundee a few times.Over 2.5 goals+BTTS is my main prediction here.
