Hibernian vs Motherwell Prediction & Match Preview

Hibernian vs Motherwell
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 15 August 2020
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Easter Road (Edinburgh)

The Hibees are enjoying life at the Premiership this year. Currently, they are second in the table after winning all three matches. Only a slight goal difference prevents them from replacing Rangers at the top spot. They would be looking to continue their unbeaten run but it is easier said than done against Motherwell.

The Motherwell boss was furious after the draw to Livingston’s last matchday. Some of the players were largely critiqued after losing points from a situation where they could have picked their first win of the season. A team that finished third last year has lost two of their three games so far. All of these came against far inferior teams when compared to the Steelmen. So this could be crucial for them as the home side is in much better shape compared to the challenges they faced this season.

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

  • Both sides have two wins each in their five previous meetings.
  • Two recent games during that spell had more than 2.5 goals in total.
  • The Hibees are on a four-match winning streak against Motherwell at this ground.
  • They remain unbeaten in the last six head to head matches here.
  • The away team previously won here back in August 2013.
  • They are currently on a six-game winless run on the road in both League and Cup.

Hibernian vs Motherwell: Prediction

The Hibees are on blazing form winning all games so far. On the other hand, the visitors have been thrashed by below-par teams in their opening two matches. Their defense has let them down against in the recent matches against Livingston. The last four head to head matches were also won by the home team at this ground. So we can expect Motherwell to suffer disappointment on Saturday also.

Despite the visitors are currently struggling to win they have enough firepower to break any defense in the competition. The home side has been giving away goals to far inferior sides in recent matches at this ground. Both of them have scored in three recent meetings at this ground also. So I am backing both teams to score and the home side getting all three points.
