Hibernian vs Kilmarnock Prediction & Match Preview

Hibernian vs Kilmarnock
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 1 August 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Easter Road.

Both these teams had failed to make the European cut, and settled for mid-table finishes the last season.

By the looks of things at present, the Hibs have the advantage. Not only are they better in terms of recent form, but they are at home – where they had displayed some of their best performances the last campaign.

On top of that, Killie have been struggling on the road for a very long time as well. And finally, they have been the inferior team in h2h clashes overall too.

Likely, expect Hibernian to emerge victorious this Saturday.

Hibernian vs Kilmarnock: Head-to-head (h2h)

Hibernian vs Kilmarnock: Prediction

Alex Dyer’s men are on a winless run of five games, of which four were losses – and they conceded a total of 12 goals in the process. On the road, they have a total of one win in the past nine months, and in the midst of it had gone through a five-game losing run too.

Moreover, their only away in the period had come against the worst team in the competition then.

On the other hand, their counterparts have lost just against three teams in whole since May of 2019 at home – and two of those squads were Rangers and Celtic – the two absolute best teams in the league.

Furthermore, they had also registered 11 of the previous 16 overall h2h wins, and have remained unbeaten in such match-ups since 2014 at home as well.

Considering these stats, expect Hibernian to deliver the win this weekend.
