Hibernian vs Hearts
Date: Sunday, 28 April 2019
Kick-Off 12:15 UK / 13:15 CET
Venue: Easter Road Stadium (Edinburgh).
Bitter city rivals are set for the new edition of the massive Edinburgh derby.
Hibernian and Hearts hold bottom two spots in the Championship Round of Scottish Premiership, but they will still take on each other in the most important tie of the Matchday on Sunday afternoon at Easter Road Stadium.
Hibs will no doubts head into it as form favourites following an impressive streak of 7 wins, 3 draws and 1 defeat in past 11 games in all competitions. They are unbeaten in last nine league outings and have snatched six wins and three draws along the way.
It is a huge run if we know the Hibs played the likes of Rangers and Celtic in the process. The main catalyst for such sudden rise of form can definitely be found in the like of Paul Heckingbottom.
The Englishman is doing a fabulous job with his new team. Can he guide Hibernian towards a new success on Sunday afternoon against team’s arch enemies Hearts?
Hibernian vs Hearts: Head-to-head
The Jam were more successful historically as they lead the head to head tie by 11 wins coming into 97th clash against Hibernian.
Nevertheless, it’s the Hibs who claimed spoils when teams met each other just this month in the last game of the regular season away at Tynecastle Park (1-2).
Hibs won 19 and lost 15 of 48 home encounters with Hearts.
Hibernian vs Hearts: Prediction
The Jam enter the match n completely opposite mood. They lost three on the spin in the Premiership conceding as many as eight goals in the process. The latest of failures came last Saturday when Rangers picked up a 1-3 victory at Tynecastle Park.
Hearts might struggle to create in the final third here at Easter Road Stadium. Hibs conceded just one goal in last five home outings in the league even though they played the likes of Rangers, Kilmarnock and Celtic along the way.
Paul Heckingbottom’s men held the likes of Celtic to a goalless draw on the home court seven days ago. They are well worth backing to keep a clean sheet here against local Edinburgh rivals at 2.62.
