Aberdeen vs Hibernian
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Friday, 6 November 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Pittodrie Stadium.
These two teams are placed third and fourth in the table behind the two titans – Celtic and Rangers. As of now, the Hibees and the Dons are separated by a total of just one point, and the winner of this upcoming encounter will climb to the third spot.
However, it needs to be noted that Derek McInnes’s men are the only squad in the competition along with the Rangers to stay unbeaten in the last five match-days in the league.
They also have a good h2h record over the years, and a 100% winning record in h2h encounters in 2020.
Likely, count on Aberdeen to have the upper hand this weekend.
Aberdeen vs Hibernian: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two teams locked horns with each other, the Dons recorded a 0-1 win on the road.
- They had registered 11 of the former 14 overall wins.
- The guests have not won at this stadium since 2012.
- In the past seven-year period, the visitors have scored a total of just three goals at this venue.
- The latest clash at this ground had ended in a 3-1 win for the hosts.
Aberdeen vs Hibernian: Prediction
McInnes’s men were unbeaten in 19 of their last 23 overall games, and two of these defeats had come against Celtic and Rangers, while one had come in the Europa League.
At home, they were unbeaten in six of their former seven overall match-ups, and they had managed to win five of these games.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in three of their last five league matches, and remained so in two of their preceding three Premiership fixtures on the road.
Furthermore, and most importantly, the Dons have a terrific h2h record against this rival. They had won both of the h2h clashes in 2020, and had recorded 11 of the previous 14 overall h2h wins.
And at this stadium, they have not lost since 2012 against this rival, and have conceded a total of three goals from the Hibees since 2013.
Taking into account these stats, expect Aberdeen to deliver a great performance this weekend.
