The international break has returned and it is disrupting European football at the highest level. However, the Scottish Championship hasn’t been put on hold as Dundee United and Ross County meet on Tuesday in a top of the table clash.
There have been plenty of meetings between these sides in recent seasons and they have been relatively even. Of the last five in all competitions, Dundee United have won three while Ross County have two victories and two of those games have seen over 5.5 goals. There have been three or more goals in four of the last five meetings, the only one which had fewer was the last one back in November where United won 1-0 away from home.
The hosts’ chances of winning the league rest on this match as they must win to have a chance of the title. The lead will still be at a comfortable eight points if they do win the match.

The away side can take a huge step towards lifting the title with three points on Tuesday. It will still be very much in their hands if they fail to win.

In the form they are in, it is hard to see past a Ross County victory even though they are playing away from home. Excluding the last one, the meetings tend to produce plenty of goals so backing over 2.5 seems like good value. If you also think Ross County will come away with the points, it is worth backing them to win whilst also conceding.
