Dundee Utd vs Ross County Prediction & Betting tips
While in the big leagues a two-week international break is pending and the national team are already in their national teams, on Tuesday evening in Tannadice Park the top game of the second Scottish league. Second-placed Dundee United (ranked second, 46 points) expects front-runners and last year’s relegated Ross County (ranked 1, 57 points). If the Arabs, the Staggies still catch, Dundee must win the game on Tuesday. In a defeat is the direct return of the Highlander nothing more in the way and Dundee would grudgingly accept the playoffs. At the end of the season, only the table first rises directly into the Scottish Premiership and can once again compete with the Old Firm teams Celtic and Rangers.
For the teams in the squares two, three and four, there would still be the possibility to ascend in May, but the playoffs in the championship are simply not possible. First, the third and fourth of the regular season duel before the winner meets the second. The winner then hits the penultimate of the Premiership. Only when this game is successfully accomplished, may be celebrated. Last season, Livingston made the climb in Scotland’s Beletage. All games take place in the mode of playoff and return. On Tuesday, there is no clear preference between Dundee United and Ross County according to odds of bookmakers and experts.
Although Dundee United also went into the season ahead of this championship season as promotion favorite number one, in all likelihood it will be enough for the playoffs in the end. Last season there was in the semifinals the off against the later climber Livingston. Coach was then Csaba László, with the Dundee also started the new season. But after a 1: 5 home against Ross County, the Hungarian had to take his hat on 30 September and Hearts legend Robbie Neilson took over. Although Dundee started a transfer offensive under the 38-year-old in January and pledged a total of eleven new players, among them well-known names like Osman Sow and Mark Reynolds for the championship, the “Arabs” lack the consistency in the fight for first place. In the recent league game, there was a defeat at Partick Thistle, which Dundee only four of the past nine championship games won (4-2-3).
Therefore, between Dundee United and Ross County, our forecast is not based on a success of the “Arabs”. The Scottish champion of 1983 once missed this strange nickname when United won in the 1962/63 season a 3-0 win against Albion Rovers in the winter and played so well that the press raved that United would play the game Arab. Such a result would probably be signed by the 1987 UEFA Cup finalist for Tuesday. Because then in the league would still prevail a little tension, who rises directly in the end.
Six seasons at a stretch was the club from the 5,400-soul village Dingwall the northernmost Premiership club in Scotland. For the first time since this season there is no team from the Highlands in the highest Scottish league. Although the fans of Ross County and the Inverness Caledonian Thistle, just a stone’s throw away, could equally enjoy the new edition of the Highlands Derby, everyone in Dingwall would soon like to return to Celtic and the Rangers at Victoria Park. Currently, everything speaks for a prompt return, which was not expected in the summer. Meanwhile, the lead of the “Staggies” on the second Dundee United is eleven points. Ross County would be as good as a victory.
The Staggies have not only won the most games (17) and lost the least (four), Ross County also has the best Offensive (50 goals) and strongest Defensive (26 conceded) in the Championship. The past six league games could win the team to the coach duo Steven Ferguson and Stuart Kettlewell all. The last defeat was mid-January away in Dumfries at Queen of the South. With 22 points Ross County is together with Ayr United and Dundee United the best away team of the Championship. Accordingly, between Dundee United and Ross County our forecast is a tip on away win with “Draw no Bet”. The missing young center-back Tom Grivosti is missing because of a yellow-red-barrier. Top striker Billy Mckay is injured for the rest of the season.
