Dundee FC vs Hibernian
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Friday, 22 February 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Dens Park (Dundee).
Dundee has been making a valiant effort in order to break free from the relegation list.
They have avoided a loss in their last three match-days in a row, which is quite an achievement considering the earlier performances of the team. They may have their work cut out for them though, as this set of visitors have always been a thorn in h2h meetings.
Hibernian, currently in the 8th spot, will surely be targeting the misfiring St.Johnstone, which occupies the last position in the Championship group. They have not won a single game in their last five appearances in the league schedule, registering just one point in the process.
The visitors for this upcoming tie will definitely have this playing in the back of their minds, and will likely set their plans as such.

Dundee FC vs Hibernian Prediction
The backline of Dundee has vastly improved compared to their earlier displays in the Premiership. The fact that the season is approaching its end might be the root cause, but anyway, they have considerably limited the number of goals getting into their nets. This stat comprehensively deserves to be noted, which will play a role in the outcome of this game.
After losing ten of their eleven home-ties at one point, the team is now unbeaten in six of their last eight games in front of the home crowd. The visitors will have to sweat it out on the pitch to make their trip valuable.
The h2h meetings are predominantly favored towards Hibernian. They have not lost for the last seven years against this opponent and has recorded nine of the last ten overall wins and three of the last four at this venue. Also, they have recorded almost double the points that of their counterparts, on the table.
For this reason, I expect a hard-fought, narrow win for the guests. Both teams will be looking for the win, as a draw at this point is pretty much useless for them. Overly defensive tactics will not be used due to this reality. All in all, a 0-1 win for the visitors looks like the most probable outcome.
