Dundee Utd vs Kilmarnock Predictions and Best Picks

This is the most important match of the season for both sides as they fight to avoid relegation.

Kilmarnock to Win

The first Dundee Utd vs Kilmarnock prediction is based on their h2h record, and it is quite strange that this will be their sixth match this season alone. Kilmarnock won three of those games, and with the visiting team's position just above the relegation zone, it seems that Kilmarnock has the upper hand, even though they only earned three more points from their rivals. Dundee Utd is currently at the very bottom which means as of now they are relegated. However, they still have a chance of survival.

Under 2.5 Goals

In matches like Dundee Utd vs Kilmarnock, especially at this stage of the season, a lot of goals are not expected. Both teams are trying to avoid relegation and we can think about a tough defensive approach that both sides will enforce. Three out of the final five matches they played, and curiously, all of them this season, only had two matches that crossed the two-and-a-half goal threshold. Kilmarnock played the last four matches with fewer than three goals in the back of the net while Dundee Utd had three games that went over the line.

Dundee Utd vs Kilmarnock Lineups, Match Preview, and Team Information

Dundee Utd

The home team will be without injured Liam Smith and suspended Aziz Behich for this all-important match. Their current form doesn't give much hope to the fans with losses piling up and coming up against Kilmarnock who they lost to three times this season already will be a difficult task to overcome. The hosts will hope that Steven Fletcher is healthy enough to get them on the scoresheet. He is the team's leading scorer this season, and with all of his experience counting for the final two games of the year, Fletcher is the man to keep an eye out for in this matchup.

Provisional lineup: Birighitti, Niskanen, Ayina, Mulgrew, McMann, Harkes, Sibbald, Middleton, McGrath, Pawlett, Fletcher.

Kilmarnock

Having a slight upper hand over their direct competitors against relegation will benefit the team's mindset ahead of this match. Kilmarnock's coach Derek McInnes will prepare his side without injured Ben Chrisene and suspended David Watson. Kilmarnock was victorious in their last away encounter against Dundee Utd and will be looking forward to making another statement.

Provisional lineup: Walker, Dorsett, Wright, Mayo, McKenzie, Donnelly, Chambers, Alston, Armstrong, Vassell, Doidge.

Player to Watch: Steven Fletcher

The experienced striker has scored eight goals this season for Dundee Utd leading the team in that important department, and he is also the assists leader with four. Fletcher's goalscoring ability will be essential for the final two matches of the season as Dundee Utd is trying to avoid being relegated.
