Hibernian vs Aberdeen
2018/19 Scottish Premiership
Date: Saturday, 25th August 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Easter Road (Edinburgh).
Hibernian and Aberdeen will go head to head on Saturday as both teams hope for a win to put more pressure on Hearts.
The Hibs are slowly getting back to their better self after some weeks of complication. They started the league campaign in a grand style, beating Motherwell 3-0 at home as goals came from Mallan, Shaw and Boyle.
Hibs are out of the Europa League, they drew 0-0 at home but lost 3-0 in the return Leg in Norway. Prior to the European exit, they were unable to win St Johnstone as the game ended 1-1 with no Victor and no vanquished.
Last week, Hibs progressed to League Cup quarter-finals as they comfortably beat Ross County. Their defense has some issues that needs to be sorted out else Aberdeen attackers will punish them at any opportunity.
Aberdeen have been getting the results they needed since their exit in the Europa League against Burnley. It was a hard fought battle against the Premier League side as the game ended 1-1 in both legs.
The Dons haven’t lost any game since they lost to Burnley, they have had impressive results in the 3 games played. They played Steven Gerrard’s Rangers which gave them their only point of the season.
They played poorly the following week though they won by a lone goal but they defeated St Mirren in the League Cup last week as the game ended 4-0. They will hope to continue where they left off last week.
Hibernian vs Aberdeen: Head to Head
The last meeting between these two teams ended in a goalless draw. But prior to the last game, Aberdeen have 3 wins in 5 games against Hibs with the remaining two in evenly split into a draw and loss.
Hibernian vs Aberdeen: Prediction
The two sides have returned to good form in their last weekend game. They are level on same point and both sides’ hopes for a win.
Considering the issues in Hibs defense, we think it’s fair to back Aberdeen for that reason. It will be a tight game, but we are backing Aberdeen to win this one while both teams gets on the score sheet.
