Motherwell vs St. Mirren for the Scottish Cup 5th round match on Tuesday at Fir Park Stadium.
Motherwell and St. Mirren will face each other in the repeat of the fifth round of the Scottish Cup, with the two teams drawing 1-1 in the February 8th game.
The two teams also had to measure themselves in the Premiership on Saturday, but that game was postponed.
When we take into account the Premiership leaderboard, Motherwell’s level is better than that of its rival, but today it is not experiencing its best moment.
In the last five games, it has only achieved poor results: three defeats and two draws. It did not show very well in the offensive part, where in three of the last five games, it was without scoring to its rivals.
As a host, the results do not improve much. It has four games without winning, and it is still because it does not score. At home, it has not scored in the last two games, against Celtic and Hibernian.
It is in the fourth position in the Premiership. This gives the impression that it is a superior team, but the results do not support it for now.
It is in the tenth position on the leaderboard. A victory would save the season because it would be the only way to continue fighting for something important at the end of the season in Scotland.
It has six consecutive games without a win, although not all are bad news, as four of those games ended in a draw.
The purpose of the team is to improve in defense because if it concedes fewer goals from rivals, it can get better results.
Although the Premiership table says otherwise, they are two very balanced teams. That’s why they drew in the first match of the fifth round, and now they must play the tiebreaker.
St. Mirren is better than Motherwell in defense, but both have a lot of problems in attack.
As it is a decisive match, because the winner would advance in the Cup phase, both teams will be cautious, as it can be complicated to correct an error.
