Hibernian vs St. Johnstone
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 24 August 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Easter Road (Edinburgh).

Hibernian had managed to crawl into the Championship Group the last season, while their opposite number failed to do so. The initial performances of the teams suggest a similar ending this time too.

Hibernian began with a 1-0 win over St. Mirren and lost their next tie, but within good reason, as the fixture was against the Rangers. Johnstone, meanwhile, is winless so far. While the loss against the Celtic game was an obvious outcome, fans expected more against Livingston.

Because of their games against the top two titans, these clubs have conceded the most goals in the competition at present and is severely lacking in their respective goal differences. Something needs to be done fast, and as such, we could await a thrilling encounter.

Hibernian vs St. Johnstone Prediction

Johnstone is on a four-game losing run on the road and conceded 13 goals from these fixtures in return for just two. Also, their last official win in an away tie came nine months back.

On the other hand, Hibernian won four of their last five home ties, and they have lost just once in front of their home crowd in the prior five months.

Moreover, they have found the back of the net twice or more in three of their former five home fixtures and failed to score in three of these five as well.

As these observations clearly point out, the top pick for the day is a home win.
