Aberdeen sets to start off their Scottish Premiership in style after coronavirus scares rocked the camp. The match schedules against side Hamilton on Wednesday with kickoff at 9:45 pm.
Hamilton will travel to Pittodrie, having started their Scottish Premiership title run with back to back defeats. The side started the season with a 5-1 thrashing to side Celtic. The side proceeded to concede a late goal ending in a 1-0 loss to side Ross County.
Derek Mclnnes started off the campaign with a disappointing 1-0 loss to side Rangers. Making matters worse, the camp’s fixtures were suspended due to several players testing positive for the corona virus.
The coronavirus scare saw eight players enter into self-isolation following two positive tests. It was the decision by the SFA to postpone their last fixture against side St. Johnstone scheduled at a later side.
Brian Rice is another discontented person following the display so far by the side. The Accies offset their scoresheet, starting with an own goal. The side needs to capitalize on the current out of form state of their opponents to climb out of the bottom of the table.
Hamilton has to contend with a depleted squad after three days the side have to travel to take on title defenders Celtic. It remains a battle for Rice to pick his first points in the league when they face off this Wednesday.

Aberdeen Team News
Five players of the first team remain in self-isolation ahead of the trip. Another missing figure ahead of the match is Andrew Considine, who is serving a ban. This might force Mclnnes to make changes in the entire squad. This might hand Shay Logan and Tommie Hoban a recall to the defense.
Hamilton Team News
Rice has mixed the first team and side team in the starting two matches, and we expect more changes in the squad this Wednesday. Some recalls that could mark the game include the likes of Charlie Trafford and David Templeton.
Prediction and Odds
Each team has over half of the squad unavailable with either case of self-isolation or injuries. We expect a low encounter game.
Correct Score: 0-0
