Kilmarnock vs Hamilton Prediction & Match Preview

Kilmarnock vs Hamilton Academical
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 30th March 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Rugby Park (Kilmarnock).

Kilmarnock has already ensured a place in the top-six, and subsequently the Championship Group. Still, their form has dropped a bit in the last few match-days, and the team would like to rectify it before it’s too late. They have the opportunity to do this weekend, as they are hosting one of the worst away teams in the league.

Hamilton has already ruled out an escape from the relegation group and is sure of a finish in the bottom-most tier. The extent of their mediocrity is such that, the team just above them in the table holds a 14-point lead over them. They also have the distinction of having scored the least number of goals in the tournament.

Kilmarnock vs Hamilton Academical Prediction

Hamilton lost 12 of their last 15 away ties and failed to score in these 12 matches as well. That’s a run of 12 straight losses, where the team shot blanks. On top of that, Kilmarnock recorded the last five league wins on the trot.

Hamilton is also sure to finish in the relegation group, and with the next best team boasting a 14-point lead over them, chances for a better finish is extremely unlikely. The team is demotivated due to this fact, and on top of that, they are on the road against a team that has already qualified for the Championship group.

Also, consider that Academical has scored the least number of goals in the competition, and in away games as well. In fact, on the road, the team could not even record an average of 0.5 goals per tie.

Expect a dominating win by the hosts this Saturday.
