Hibernian vs Hamilton Academical
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Friday, 2 October 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Easter Road.

The Hibs have been a comfortable mid-table team for the past few seasons, and they finished two spots below the cut-off for Europa League in 2019-20.

Meanwhile, the Accies narrowly avoided relegation the past year, as they finished second to last in standings, and so far have not shown any indication of improvement.

On top of that, Jack Ross’s men do have a great h2h record against this opponent, and they are also at home.

As such, expect a great game by Hibernian this weekend.

Hibernian vs Hamilton Academical: Prediction

Brian Rice’s men were winless in 15 of their preceding 19 overall games, and they remained so in 16 of their former 20 road trips.

They had also lost five of the previous six overall h2h meetings, and are on a four-match losing run at this stadium.

Going on, they were one of the worst teams in the whole league in 2019-20, and had avoided getting the boot by a whisker.

On the other hand, their opposite number were unbeaten in seven of their last nine games, and they remained invincible in 12 of their former 15 appearances at home.

In addition, the Hibs have been the third-best team in the competition so far this season, and have also scored the most number of goals after the two heavyweights – Celtic and Rangers. Keep note that they are placed third in the table after these two squads.

Meanwhile, the Accies are placed third from last in the standings at the moment.

By the looks of things, expect a Hibernian win this Friday.
