Motherwell vs Hibernian Prediction & Match Preview

Motherwell vs Hibernian
Scottish Premiership
Date: Saturday, 5 December 2020
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: Fir Park, Motherwell.

The most interesting clash this Saturday in Scottish Premiership is taking place at Fir Park where Motherwell welcomes Hibernian. Hosts have been going through crisis, having lost two out of the last three games and slipping to 8th position. Good news for them is that upper bracket is just one victory away.

As for the opposition, Hibernian have been quite unpredictable lately. Hibs were so close to beating Celtic a couple of weeks ago, but wasted 2-0 lead and that game eventually ended as a draw. Still, fans are probably happy with 4th position and 26 points from 15 matches. Bookies are expecting narrow contest, offering very similar odds for home and away win.

Motherwell vs Hibernian Head-to-head

Overall, Hibernian had more success in the past, having won 34 out of 80 games while losing 22 encounters.

Four out of the last six duels ended Under 2.5 goals.

Motherwell vs Hibernian Prediction

High number of losses at this stadium is the main reason for Motherwell’s poor placement. Squad from Fir Park was defeated at home pitch four times in seven games, while winning only two.

Stephen Robinson has been their head manager for almost four years now, but most recent results are not looking so great. The only player who offered some sort of consistency so far is Mark O’Hara, adding three goals to his name and two assists.

Hibernian have excellent stats when it comes to away days, having won five out of eight games, while losing only two. Total number of goals scored in those duels is exactly 2.00 per match.

As mentioned above, team from Edinburgh had great appearance against reigning champions. The follow up duel versus St Johnstone was also solid, and it also ended with 2-2 draw. We feel that away win draw no bet option is the best way to approach this fixture.

Motherwell vs Hibernian Bet Tips

  • Away win draw no bet @ 1.90
