Aberdeen vs Hibernian Prediction
Derrick McInnes’s men failed to extend their four-match unbeaten run in the league last week as Steven Gerrard’s men thrashed five unanswered goals past them by the end of the ninety minutes. The home team hardly made an impact in that clash and recorded no more than four measly shots on target, only one of which made the goalkeeper work.
However, to their defense, they did square up a side that is currently breathing down the neck of the mighty Celtic for the top spot, that too on the road. At home, Aberdeen have been a far more confident bunch and are yet to taste defeat here in the Premiership. It is also worth mentioning that seven of the nine goals for the hosts so far have come from their fixtures on home soil.
On the other hand, Hibernian have been erratic in their respective clashes and have just one win to boast of from their last seven matches in the top flight. The visitors huffed and puffed to hold Celtic to a 1-1 tie in their previous game at home, while on the road they succumbed to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Kilmarnock.
Taking into account that four of their last six visits to this venue have also seen at the losing end, it looks like the Aberdeen faithful will be the ones rejoicing at the last blast of the whistle.
Furthermore, the home team have not been shy in searching for early goals, and have opened the scoring in all of their Premiership games here. Given that three out of their last five head to head clashes here have also seen Hibernian concede first, expect Aberdeen to draw first blood in this one.
