Deepdale Duel: Preston North End vs Aberdeen Pre-season Power Play

Key Stats
– Preston North End achieved an average BettingTips4You Expert rating of 6.82, ranking 13th out of 24 in the Championship.
– Aberdeen have maintained a 100% win record in their pre-season matches so far.
– Ester Solker have scored five goals in two pre-season games for Aberdeen.

Preston North End and Aberdeen are set to enhance their pre-season groundwork when they face off in a friendly at Deepdale this Saturday. The home team recently suffered a 2-1 defeat at home to Ipswich Town and is in the final stages of their preparations for the Championship, whereas Aberdeen are also nearing the start of their Scottish Premiership season with only two pre-season fixtures remaining.

Background Analysis

Last season, Preston North End charted an impressive journey under the leadership of Ryan Lowe, who managed the team through a full season for the first time. They wrapped up the season in the 12th position, gathering 63 points from 46 games, with a tally of 17 wins equaling their defeat count. Their dream for a playoff spot fell apart in the last five games, where they recorded four losses and a draw, following a promising three-match winning streak. After the disappointing culmination, the team’s focus shifted towards bettering their performance in the 2023-24 campaign.

Kicking off their pre-season on a high note, Preston demolished Bamber Bridge 7-0 before securing a 3-0 win against Bruno’s Magpies in Spain. Their triumphant run, however, hit a bump with a 1-0 defeat against fourth-tier Barrow. The sole goal was delivered by David Worrall, marking their second consecutive loss at home to Ipswich Town, which they will be keen to rectify in the upcoming match against Aberdeen.

On the other hand, Aberdeen enjoyed a fruitful season, finishing third in the Scottish Premiership for the first time in half a decade. Barry Robson took the reins midway and led the team to a string of seven victories, ending the first phase on a strong note. Their pre-season kicked off with a thundering 9-0 win against Turriff United and continued their dominance by defeating Fraserburgh, with both games showcasing an impressive attacking display.

Team Lineups and Key Players

Ryan Lowe will likely start with a similar lineup to their match against Ipswich Town, with summer signings Will Keane and Mads Frokjaer-Jensen leading the attack. Keane will take centre stage with key forward Emil Riis sidelined due to injury. Young sensation Felipe Rodriguez-Gentile may earn a place in the starting lineup, following his goal against Ipswich Town.

For Aberdeen, Barry Robson will likely field a full-strength starting XI at Deepdale. New signing Ester Solker will undoubtedly play a critical role in the attack, supported by Leighton Clarkson and Graeme Shinnie in midfield.


1. Match Outcome Prediction: Draw

Analysing the recent form and data of both teams, it is justifiable to predict a draw. Preston have seen a mixed bag of results in their friendlies, winning two and losing two. Aberdeen, on the other hand, have secured two comfortable victories. Considering the potential of Preston to bounce back on home ground and Aberdeen’s solid form, a draw seems a realistic prediction, at a very decent odds.

2. Correct Score Prediction: 2-2

Given both teams’ attack strength demonstrated in their pre-season games, a high-scoring match is a reasonable expectation. Preston averaged one goal per game last season while Aberdeen’s pre-season performances indicate an elevated scoring potential. A 2-2 draw reflects the competitive nature of both teams and their scoring capabilities.

3. Goalscorer Prediction: Ester Solker

Aberdeen’s summer signing, Ester Solker, has been a revelation in pre-season, scoring five goals in his first two appearances. Given his current form, he seems to be a likely candidate to score at least once in the match against Preston.
