On the other hand, Inverness needs a strong performance here to have any chance of progressing. As such, expect goals at either end of the pitch in this game.

Inverness received a huge blow early on in the 2nd half after Liam Polworth was sent off for raising his foot too high and almost caused some serious damage to Uniteds Mark Connolly. The initial 45 minutes ended goalless and rather uneventful, with the exception of missed chances from the visitors. Tuesdays first-leg clash ended 1-0 for visitors Dundee United, in a game that was heavily contested.


However, Thistle were able to bring things level with 10 minutes to go, securing their place in the final tie against Dundee United. The 2nd leg of the tie saw Ayr United come into the tie a little bit more when they scored early on in the first half, as the away goal rule does not apply here as it would in European competitions.

Inverness needs to take advantage of their home status, as Dundee clearly holds the high ground due to the h2h win on the road just a few weeks back. A dismal showing in this tie would spell disaster for Inverness, as they are already expecting a tough outing in the return leg. Once again, these two tie boots to face each other in the first leg of the playoffs.

The Terrors were unlucky not to win the league, as they missed out on doing so by a few games and seemingly giving way to a title race in the final weeks of the season, but Ross County were the eventual winners. Unlike Inverness, United didnt have to play an initial tie for promotion, meaning that Robbie Neilsons side does have the advantage of not having played as many games.

However, were going to back a draw for this tie, with a final score of 1-1 and with everything to play for in the 2nd leg. Inverness will boast the home advantage for the first leg, but they can also rest easy knowing that the away goal rule does not apply here. Four games are what separates the sides from joining Ross County in the Premiership next season, as the victor of this tie will go on to face St Mirren in what will be the final play-off match. Dundee United finished 9 points ahead of Caley Thistle in the league, and their superiority, on paper, is clear.

Dundee United have been the better side all year and were close to winning the league, but Inverness CT have also finished the season off strongly, as they seem to have grown stronger every week. Its a tough game to predict, but were going to back the hosts to win here and for both teams to score with a final score of 2-1. Dundee United will go into this second-leg with a 1 goal advantage, but the tie is very much alive for both sides. The fact that the away goal doesnt have the same effect as it does in European competitions means that neither side has a real advantage, but itll be a tough game for both teams regardless.
