Aberdeen put up a good fight to try and prize the Scottish Premiership out of Celtic's grasp last season, and were in with a good shout until the second half of the season. They led the table for a while, but once Ronny Deila's new look side got into their stride in the latter stages of the season they never looked like losing. Aberdeen have started the season in the same way, and have won all of their opening five matches in the Scottish Premiership so far. While Aberdeen have based their success on defensive organisation, Celtic are showing a more free flowing and attacking style of play. They are the league's top scorers with 16 goals in their opening six games, but have also let their guard down a number of times, conceding an average of a goal per game. This hasn't translated into continental competition though, and for the second season in a row they have been eliminated from the Champions League prior to the group stages. The country's best attack visits the country's tightest defence on Saturday, and unless Aberdeen go behind early on I expect this to be a close match.
