2018/19 Scottish Premiership
Date: Saturday, 1st September 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Tynecastle Stadium (Edinburgh).
Hearts are the only team still with 100% record in the Scottish Premier League, having won their first 3 games. They will hope to keep up with this record as they welcome St Mirren this weekend.
They are leading the league with 9 points and are ahead of 2nd placed Celtic with 3 points. The Jambos kicked off their Premiership campaign with a huge 4-1 win over Hamilton. They followed this up with a 1-0 win over former Champions Celtic and they also defeated Kilmarnock 1-0 last time out.
Although Hearts has some off field drama going on, their manager Levein is hospitalized. Their excellent run is not expected to be derailed by this off field issues, they have an excellent run of 8-game winning run in all competitions. Hearts have also kept clean sheets in 5 of these 8 games and we are expecting them to put on a string performance this weekend.
On the contrary, started the season with 3-2 win over Dundee but have failed to continue with this fashion. They lost 2-0 to Rangers in the following week and followed it up with another 2-0 defeat to Livingston and 4-0 League Cup defeat against Aberdeen.
It’s hard to see them go past Hearts this weekend.

St Mirren haven’t scored a goal in their last 3 competitive games which shows they are struggling in attack. Considering Hearts have kept clean sheets in 5 of their last 8 outings we are counting on them to keep a clean sheet here.
