Aberdeen vs Hibernian
Date: Friday, 9 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Pittodrie Stadium (Aberdeen).
Aberdeen moved lock on points with the Hibs at the sixth place of the Premiership standings ahead of their clash on Friday evening at Pittodrie. The Dons come into it in mush higher spirits following back-to-back wins over Hamilton Academical and Kilmarnock in last two rounds.
They actually made it three on the trot if we count the League Cup victory over Rangers (1-0 in late-October). Derek McInnes thus looks to have finally found the wanted rhythm after his men got off to a sloppy start to the new campaign. Aberdeen showed a fantastic fighting spirit to come back from deficit against the fourth-placed Kilmarnock on Sunday afternoon. Bruce Anderson and Lewis Ferguson were on target in a 1-2 comeback victory at Rugby Park.
Aberdeen vs Hibernian: Head-to-head
- The hosts have a positive head to head record in matches with the Hibs.
- Aberdeen lead the head to head tie by 9 wins ahead of their 85th encounter with Hibernian.
- The Dons are, however, winless in last four meetings with the Hibs.
- Three games in such run ended in a draw, each time with fewer than three goals scored.
Aberdeen vs Hibernian: Prediction
The Hibs will enter this in a completely opposite mood. They lost two and drew one of last three league ties. The 4-2 defeat at Celtic and a goalless draw at Hearts may not be regarded as failures for Neil Lennon’s men, but last weekend’s 0-1 home loss to St. Johnstone is certainly one.
It was the second consecutive match which saw the Hibs fail to find the back of the net. It’s really hard to see them bouncing back from such thread here against the in-form Aberdeen side. The value is definitely with the hosts who are 2-20 to pick up the spoils and make it four wins on the spin in all competitions.
You can alternatively back the Dons to keep a clean sheet at 2.62.
