Aberdeen cantered to an easy 2-0 victory over Dundee United thanks to goals by Jonny Hayes and Christian Ramirez in their opening game of the season. Aberdeen fielded just one change from the lineup against BK Hacken midweek in the Europa Conference League. Dundee failed to get a stranglehold of the game with Aberdeen causing their own defensive problems. Both teams did not have too many chances with both keepers not having much to do.
Aberdeen had more of the possession which paid off after 27 minutes. Hayes beat the offside trip and got at the end of a brilliant Lewis Ferguson pass before scoring past Benjamin Siegrist in the net. American striker Ramirez put the game to bed six minutes after halftime when he scored from a bullet header.
Aberdeen boss Stephen Glass: “It was a great performance, especially first half. Performing strongly at home bodes well for the season. As a standalone, it was an exceptional performance.” he added after his Aberdeen side beat Dundee united. “The players looked very assured in their choices which comes down to decision-making and the players stood up to the physical challenge and kept their discipline.”
Dundee United boss Tam Courts: “It was great in terms of seeing the fans back in, but the overriding feeling from me is one of frustration that Aberdeen didn’t have to work too hard for the goals.” he added. “It’s not something that you can normally accuse our team of. We probably looked passive because we had a good shape and structure but we were guilty of sloppy play and gifting it back to Aberdeen. We looked dangerous when we did string some passes together.”
