Hibernian vs Hearts
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Sunday, 22 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Easter Road (Edinburgh).
Things have been going downhill for Hibernian ever since their opening day victory over St Mirren at home. The squad have not had a taste of success in their last four games in a running and are sporting a very dismal two-game losing streak on the road at the moment.
Their most recent outing saw Kilmarnock slot two unanswered goals past them to register the win while their previous home match saw them pick a point off of St Johnstone in their 2-2 draw.
With five games up, Hearts have slumped to the bottom of the table and rightly so considering that they are one of the only two teams left to come away with a win. The visitors have been far from convincing in any of their past three games in a row as well, the last of which ended with the away side at the losing end of a 3-2 scoreline against Motherwell at home.
With a trip on the road next, Hearts will certainly have to put in the extra effort if they are to climb up the ladder this weekend.

Hibernian vs Hearts Prediction
The home team have been recording back to back losses in their last two games, but to their defense, they were away from the comforts of home in both of those clashes.
On home soil, the hosts are unbeaten so far and have already picked up a win to go with it. On the other hand, the away side have lost their only two outings in the Premiership and have conceded six goals in the process while retaliating with just half that number.
However, the visitors have forced Hibernian to share the spoils with them twice in their last eight meetings here apart from getting the better of the hosts on one occasion.
Taking into account that home team were able to salvage just a point in their last home match too, a double chance favoring Hibernian is the safest punt to back.
Furthermore, Hearts have found the back of the net in each of their league outings, despite ultimately losing out on the win. Given that the visitors have been also been getting their names on the scoresheet in their last two visits in a row, count on neither side to walk away with a clean sheet intact.
