Dundee United vs Hibernian Prediction & Match Preview

Dundee United vs Hibernian
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Tuesday, 11 August 2020
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Tannadice Park.

The Hibees have made a terrific start to their campaign, and have raced to the top of the table with a 100% winning record. It has been a real confidence-booster for the team that they are higher in the table than the titans of the league – Celtic and Rangers.

Now, they have an opportunity to further strengthen their foothold at the top – as they are pitted against a newly-promoted squad.

Micky Mellon’s men waded through the first two games with not much trouble. However, they are about to take on a real contender for the first time, and their inexperience could really cause some problems this Tuesday.

Likely, expect Hibernian to keep their winning streak alive.

Dundee United vs Hibernian: Prediction

The Hibs are an experienced bunch, and as of now, they are best team in the competition this season. They have scored the most number of goals, have a 100% winning record this campaign, and expectedly are at the top of the table.

On the other hand, their counterparts have just been promoted, and are yet to get a taste of the level of football in the top flight. They were also winless in ten of their last twelve overall games, and remained so in six of their preceding seven overall fixtures.

On top of that, they have been the inferior team in h2h clashes over the recent years as well. Taking these factors into account, expect a Hibernian win this Tuesday.
