Motherwell vs Hibernian Predictions and Match Preview

Motherwell vs Hibernian
Scotland – Premiership.
Date: Wednesday, 23rd January 2019.
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Fir Park (Motherwell).

Hibernian have lost the form that they had last season when they finished 4th in the table. They will face the Well on Wednesday to get into a top 5 spot.

The hosts are 9th in the table with 8 points between them and their opponents for Wednesday. Over 20 goals have been scored by them until now while conceding 33 in return. The recent form will not give them any hope, as they lost 4 of their last 5 games across all venues. More than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of those 5 matches in both the FA Cup and the Premiership.

At home, they are on a 3 match losing streak and no wins came in their last 4 matches. Less than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of those matches and they don’t have a clean sheet in any of those recent 4 matches.

Sitting right above their opponents for the upcoming match, Hibernian are fresh from a league defeat to Hearts. In terms of scoring and defending, they are just the opposite of the hosts. A total of 30 goals have been scored by their forwards while the defense managed to keep the goals down to 22.

They have a win and a loss in their last 5 competitive fixtures. In 4 of those games that the Hibs played the score had less than 2.5 goals at the final whistle. But Neil Lennon’s team are not that good in away games. His side lost 2 of their previous 5 matches away from home, winning only once in that period. Four of those games were low scoring affairs as well.

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

  • Hibs are unbeaten in the last 5 matches against this opposition.
  • They are on an active 3 match win streak against the Steelmen across all venues.
  • Over 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of their last 5 meetings in the Premiership.
  • The Well have 3 wins and 2 defeats against the visitors in front of their home fans.
  • More than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of those 5 matches played here.

Motherwell vs Hibernian: Prediction

The visitors have not scored in 3 of their last 5 matches away from home. So even though they have a good overall scoring record, finding goals on the road has been tough recently. Also, the hosts failed to score in 2 of their recent home games too. So we can bet on both teams not scoring with 1.93 odds.

In 7 of the last 10 home matches for the Steelmen, the score had less than 2.5 goals at the full time. The same trend can be seen in 5 of the last 7 matches on the road for the Cabbage. A similar scoreline can also be found in their last 2 meetings here. Thus a bet can be placed on a score of under 2.5 goals with 1.66 odds.
