Hibernian vs Dundee United
Date: Saturday, 19 December 2020
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: Easter Road Stadium, Edinburgh.
Hibernian connected four wins in a row since late November and they host Dundee United looking to build on it, with just a two-point gap to 2nd placed Celtic (who have two games in hand). They beat Motherwell (0-3) and Hamilton Academical (0-4) in Premiership but also made their way to League Cup semi-finals over Dundee (1-0) and Alloa Athletic (1-2) along the way.
Hibs have been very tough to cope with at Easter Road and we’ve seen them earn four wins and two draws in six outings since early October. They’ve been conceding goals quite regularly but we’ve seen Jack Ross’ men impress up front. They will be very motivated to build on their spot and we expect them in a mood.
Dundee United, on the other hand, saw losses to Livingston (2-0) and Rangers (1-2) in their last two outings and now have a top 6 spot in danger. They haven’t really been an easy side to deal with on the road but still have a lot to prove if they’re to deny the chasers at this point.
Hibernian vs Dundee United Head-to-head

Dundee last beat Hibernian back in 2016, when they bagged the Championship points in a 1-0 win at home ground.
Hibernian vs Dundee United Prediction
We will back Hibernian to extend their winning streak and bag all three points on Saturday afternoon, going for a Home win at 1.53. They’ve been in a much better place lately and we feel they’ll be able to show off at Easter Road once again, keeping up with 2nd placed Celtic despite a busy schedule on their hands.
Still, we feel we should be in for a tough challenge and we’re hoping Dundee will be able to make an impact too. With that in mind, we’re going for Hibs to outgun the rivals once again and we’ll back a high-scoring contest with Over 2.5 Goals FT at 2.00. We’ve seen them doing so on the regular and we are now hoping for more.
