Airdrie vs Motherwell Predictions

Airdrie must win to keep their hopes of qualification alive in the Scottish League Cup. Motherwell have won their opening two matches and should record a comfortable away win.

I am backing a Motherwell win and BTTS in the Lanarkshire derby. 

  • Airdrie have lost 3 of their last 4 home matches (Scottish League Cup)
  • Airdrie have seen BTTS in 8 of their last 10 home matches (Scottish League Cup)
  • Motherwell have won 9 of their last 12 matches (Scottish League Cup)
  • Motherwell have won 5 of their last 6 away matches (Scottish League Cup)
  • Motherwell have seen BTTS in 3 of their last 4 matches (Scottish League Cup)


Motherwell have a 64-48 advantage against Airdrie in 135 meetings with 23 draws. 

The Well beat Airdrie 1-0 in the last meeting between the sides in the 2006/07 Scottish FA Cup. 

Airdrie Form

Airdrie’s winless run extended to four matches following a goalless draw against Queen’s Park last time out. 

The Diamonds have picked up three points in their opening two League Cup matches, losing one and winning one on penalties.

Airdrie had chances to take all three points against Queen’s Park with 14 shots. Kouider-Aïssa missed a penalty with 10 minutes left, taking the game to a spot kicks. 

Ian Murray’s side gained a bonus point after winning 4-3 in the shootout. 

Airdrie have failed to win within 90 minutes in their last six matches and are winless in their last three at home in all competitions. 

Airdrie Injuries & Team News

Midfielder Rhys McCabe is unlikely to feature following a recent injury. 

Jordan Allan is expected to replace McCabe in midfield after an impressive display against Queen’s Park.

Motherwell Form 

Motherwell have won their two League Cup fixtures and sit top of Group F on six points. The Well comfortably defeated Queen’s Park 1-0 in their opening match before a 3-2 win against Queen of the South. 

Graham Alexander’s side were on top for most of the match with 62% possession. They went 2-0 down before halftime before second-half goals from Tony Watt, Ricki Lamie, and Kaiyne Woolery sealed the win.

Motherwell are in good form away from home, losing just two of their last 10 on the road in all competitions. They have let in a lot of goals recently and kept one clean sheet in their last six. 

Motherwell Injuries & Team News

Right-back Liam Grimshaw remains out with illness. 

Midfielder Mich’el Parker joined the Well on loan from West Ham on Friday. He could join the squad for the Airdrie fixture. 

Forward Kaiyne Woolery may be recalled to the starting XI after an impressive second-half display against Queen of the South.
