Hibernian vs Hamilton Predictions and Match Preview

Hibernian vs Hamilton
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 16th February 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Easter Road (Edinburgh).

The Hibs are agonizingly close to getting themselves into the Championship group. Just one team and five points stand between them, and the players are determined to overcome these obstacles. The job won’t be easy considering that, their direct rivals for the final spot in the aforementioned Championship Group, Motherwell, has posted five wins from their last five matches in the league.

The team has to deliver, and they have got a favorable draw to count on. Brian Rice’s men have really struggled on the road and stay at the bottom tier of the league table with just 18 points to their name from their 25 appearances in the tournament so far. They also hold the unwanted record of having scored the least number of goals and has conceded just one goal fewer than the most, 52 by St.Mirren.

Hibernian vs Hamilton Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Eddie May’s men won the last three games in a row.
  • The combined scoreline for the last three ties is 10-1, in favor of the Cabbage.
  • Eight of the last nine fixtures at the Easter Road saw the hosts getting on the scoresheet.
  • The hosts scored three or more goals in their last two attempts at home.

Hibernian vs Hamilton Prediction

Hibs were unbeaten in 21 of their last 25 home-ties. They are just five points away from securing a spot in the post-season proceedings and will be eager to get to the pitch. Playing to their tune, the schedule has allotted them the struggling Accies.

This team has lost their last five away ties in a row while failing to record a single goal in return. They also lost seven of their last eight, and ten of their last twelve on the road. Even scarier is the fact that all these ten losses saw the team being shut off entirely by the opposing defense.

In h2h ties, the combined scoreline for the last three games is 10-1, in favor of the Hibees, and 9-1, for the last two ties at the Easter Road, in favor of the hosts.

Taking into account all these observations, the logical conclusion is a win for the hosts while keeping a clean sheet. Considering their desperation to get to the top tier, I don’t think the players will leave things to happen late. Expect a goal from the home team in the first half itself.
