Hibernian vs Hamilton
Date: Saturday, 6th October 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Easter Road (Edinburgh).
Hibernian hopes to mount more pressure on leaders Hearts this weekend as they host Hamilton at Easter Road on Saturday.
Hibernian are 5 points behind early leaders heart, they are 2nd in the table with 14 points while Hearts are on 19 points. They have scored same number of goals (13) but Hibernian have conceded more (6) which gives them +7 goal difference.
With just 1 defeat, 2 draws and 4 wins they are currently the 2nd best team in the league. They are currently on a 3-game winning streak in the league with wins over Kilmarnock, Dundee and St Mirren. A win in this game will keep them at least 3 points close to the leader Heart if they fail to win their game.
Hamilton haven’t been in the best of form, they have lost 5 of the League games and won twice. They will enter this game from 2-0 defeat at the hands on bottom placed Dundee who got their first win off them.
That home defeat would definitely have a huge negative effect on their confidence. They had no bite in that game, as they managed just 1 shot on target from 11 shots against Dundee’s 4 from 11. This game is a harder task compared to last week’s game but nothing is impossible in football.
Hibernian vs Hamilton: Head to Head
- The two sides have played 19 times, Hibernian have won 9 of these games drawn 4 and lost 6 to Hamilton.
- Hibernian have on 4 out of their 9 meetings at Easter Road, drawn twice and lost 3 games to Hamilton. Their last meeting ended in a win for Hibernian earlier in April this year.
Hibernian vs Hamilton: Prediction
Hibernian shouldn’t have trouble beating Hamilton as they are the favorites in this game. Also Hamilton are coming from a poor defeat last week and might be mentally weak for this game against a tough side like Hibernian.
We are backing a huge win for Hibernian and upto 3 match goals.
