Hearts vs Dundee FC
Scotland – Premiership.
Date: Wednesday, 23rd January 2019.
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Tynecastle Stadium (Edinburgh).
The Jambos were sitting comfortably at the top of the table during the early stages. But they fell back in the title race and are now 6 points below the toppers Celtic. They will play Dundee FC in the upcoming Premiership match at home.
At present they are on a 3 game win streak in all competitions. This was something to cheer about for the team from Gorgie as they lost the 2 matches prior to this. Their last 4 games had less than 2.5 goals in total. At home too, they are on a 3 game winning run. All of their previous 5 matches had fewer than 2.5 goals at the full time.
The Dee is looking at another possible defeat this season as they face Hearts. This is definitely a season to forget for them and their manager Jim McIntyre. At present they are at the bottom of the table losing 15 of their 21 matches so far. No other team has been so poor in defense as Jim’s team have given away 46 goals already.
His side is winless in their last 7 matches across all competitions. Four of those 7 games have been defeats and they have only a win in the last 10 matches they played. Less than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of their most recent fixtures in FA Cup and the Premiership.
Away from Dens Park, they have never won since the win over Hamilton back in September 2018. In 5 of their last 6 matches on the road, over 2.5 goals were scored. They never had a clean sheet in the last 6 away matches.
The Hearts will fancy an easy win over this opposition as they have never lost against them in some time.
Hearts vs Dundee FC: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Hearts have won 3 and lost once in the last 5 h2h games against this opposition.
- Less than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of those 5 games they played across all venues.
- The hosts are unbeaten against Dundee in the last 5 meetings between them at this ground.
- They have won 4 of the last 5 h2h games played here and are currently on a 3 match win streak.
- Dundee previously won an h2h match here back in September 2012.
- All 6 of the previous h2h matches between them at this very ground had less than 2.5 goals in total.
Hearts vs Dundee FC: Prediction
The hosts are on a 3 match win streak against the Dee in front of their home fans. Also, they are on a winning run at home that is going on for 3 matches at present. They are looking good going forward in matches and has an average defense too. So I think the winning run will improve for the hosts. Thus a bet can be placed on the hosts to win with 1.45 odds.
The last 4 home matches of the Jambos had less than 2.5 goals at the final whistle. In the last 6 h2h matches between these two teams at this venue, a similar score has resulted. Even though the visitors are conceding more than 2 goals per away game, I think it will not be the case on Wednesday. Thus a bet can be placed on less than 2.5 goals with 2.00 odds.
