Ross County vs Hearts Scottish Premiership Predictions and Match Preview by LeagueLane

Ross County vs Hearts
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 2 April 2022
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Global Energy Stadium.

Hearts have been one of the best teams in the competition this season. In fact, they have been the ‘Best of the Rest’ after the two titans, Celtic, and Rangers.

The team is placed third as expected, and are pretty much guaranteed of that spot at the end of the regular season. Their objective now would be to be prepared for the Championship Group fixtures.

Meanwhile, Ross County are placed seventh in the table, and their form has been pretty good recently. But they are under pressure to improve their position in the table. If they are not able to secure a top-six finish, they will have to take part in the Relegation Group.

By the looks of things, expect a fierce encounter this Saturday. And the in-form offense of Hearts should capitalize on it.
