Kick-off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Easter Road

The Premiership game at Easter Road on Friday will see home side Hibernian up against St. Johnstone.

Despite losing their last two games, Hibernian have not lost their safe zone spot in the table. But they don’t have enough stats to have the possession of the 3rd spot. It can be understood by looking at their recordings so far in the season.

However, they are fortunate enough because the teams positioning below them possess a much unimpressive stats when compared to them. It is worth noting that they owns an average offensive and defensive line.

In fact, they have a record of conceding more goals than they scored despite of sitting in the 3rd position. None of the teams in positioned in the top four has such a stat.

Anyways, they will have a better chance of winning in the upcoming fixture. Because they are pitted against St. Johnstone who lost the previous three league fixtures. Moreover, they are currently in the relegation spot of the table.

On top of that they rather have an inferior head to head form against this opponent for the past several years. Therefore, expect a victory for the home side Hibernian on Friday.
