Aberdeen vs. Dundee Utd (Sunday, 3.00pm)
In the first round of fixtures of the 2021-22 Scottish Premiership campaign, Aberdeen will play host to Dundee United on Sunday, with both sides looking to start with a victory.
The two teams have already been in competitive action this season, with the hosts having defeated Hacken over two legs in Europa Conference League Qualifying, while their opponents cruised through the group stage of the Scottish League Cup.
We say: Aberdeen 2-1 Dundee United
While Dundee United will certainly pose a threat on Sunday, Aberdeen will be keen to kickstart their domestic season with a victory in their push for a top-three finish, and we see them having enough to come away with all three points.
Ahead of his first full season in charge of the Reds, Glass will know the importance of a strong start, likely drilling his side well in preparation for the opening league game.
Motherwell vs. Hibernian (Sunday, 4.30pm)
Following a third-placed finish last season, Hibernian will kick their Scottish Premiership campaign off on Sunday, as they make the trip to take on Motherwell.
They will come in with confidence having already defeated FC Santa Coloma over two legs in Europa Conference League Qualifying, while their hosts progressed through the Scottish League Cup group stage with relative ease.
We say: Motherwell 1-3 Hibernian
In their bid to get off to a strong start and establish themselves at the top end of the top flight, we see Jack Ross's men recoding a fairly routine victory on Sunday.
With the added confidence of a continental win, they should have more than enough to get past this Motherwell side.
