Hibernian vs Aberdeen
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Sunday, 19th May 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Easter Road (Edinburgh).
Aberdeen is currently in the fourth position, which usually would not have been afforded a European spot. But, as of now, should Celtic win the Scottish Cup, the fourth team in the Championship Group can take part in the qualification rounds to the Europa.
But that’s a pretty big decision to leave your continental ambition to the performance of another team on a given day. The sane choice would be to gun for the third position, which would guarantee the prelims of the Europa League.
As per the league standings before the final match-day, both Aberdeen and Kilmarnock have posted 64 points on the board. If the former is able to trump the result of the other this Sunday, Aberdeen will take the third place.

Hibernian vs Aberdeen Prediction
Aberdeen has been presented here with a golden opportunity. They are level on points with Kilmarnock, and both are in the hunt for the third spot, which guarantees participation in the Europa League. Considering Kilmarnock is pitted with Rangers, currently the best team in the competition (as per recent form), and one of the best sides overall, there’s a high chance that the former might drop points.
If Aberdeen is to win this game, and Kilmarnock to drop points, it’d be a fairytale for the latter. Count on them to sweat blood on the pitch and make it happen. Moreover, only once have they lost to this opponent in the last four years, and they registered ten of the last thirteen wins. Eight of the last eleven wins at this venue went to Aberdeen as well.
Going on, Aberdeen won the last two h2h clashes in a row and stood unbeaten in the last five attempts. In addition, Hibernian is winless in their last four matches and was so in seven of their last ten. They repeated the feat in five of their last six home ties. Aberdeen, meanwhile, won ten of their last thirteen away games and was unbeaten in 11.
Count on them to give a massive performance in what will be one of the most crucial games this season for them.
