Hearts vs Aberdeen Prediction
Hearts had played hosts to Hibernian the last match-day, and in spite of the home advantage, their struggles continued. The visiting contingent recorded a victory of 0-2 to post the three points on the board.
Meanwhile, Aberdeen put forth a lesson as to how to put the home status to good use. They had locked horns with Livingston in front of the home crowd, and registered a 2-1 victory.
This Sunday, the fact that Hearts are the undisputed worst of the lot will heavily influence the outcome of the game.
Hearts are placed dead-last in the table, and have secured a total of 12 points from their 20 fixtures. They have conceded the most number of goals, won the least number of games, lost the most, and most importantly, are the worst team in front of the home crowd as well.
On the other hand, Aberdeen are in hunt for a spot in the podium, and are one of only four teams in the competition to reach double digits in terms of wins. They were also unbeaten in eight of their previous ten overall matches, and in seven of their previous ten on the road.
Moreover, do note that Hearts are on six-game losing run in overall matches, and lost ten of their preceding thirteen battles too. At home, the team could show just two wins in total from their last sixteen attempts.
Reading all these together, the outcome is pretty obvious – Aberdeen are in to score three points this match-day in the Premiership, and due to this practically being a confidence-boosting exercise, Hearts will be tested early enough. They surely do have the chance to concede early in the game.
