St Johnstone vs Hibernian
2018/19 Scottish Premiership
Date: Saturday, 25th August 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: McDiarmid Park (Perth).
Dundee will travel to face ST Johnstone at McDiarmid Park on Saturday afternoon as the both look to get their first win of the season.
St Johnstone have been on the role of ‘relegation team’ for some season’s but lucky not have taken the drop. They managed to finish 8th in the table last season and we’re 13 points clear off the relegation zone.
They also were out of the two domestic cups in 2nd round and couldn’t go past the first stage of the Europa League qualifiers. However, it has been all positive for them this season despite not winning any of the two opening games. The Saints won the queen of South in League Cup to keep up with their success.
St Johnstone finished top of the group with 11 points back up, having won 3 games and drawn one. They have the reigning Champions to play in the next round and winning Dundee will be a huge boost before the league Cup game.
Dundee are already struggling though the season is still young. They have lost 3 straight games, the first 2 league games and the league Cup game last week against Ayr United.
The Dee lost 3-0 at home against a championship side which is very embarassing. The players put in a woeful display, also Sofien Moussa and Genseric Kusunga was sent off in the game.
Dundee are more pressured now and needs to start picking up points else they would have a terrible season. A defeat in his game will push them to the bottom of the table.
St Johnstone vs Dundee: Head to Head
Dundee have won 4 of their last 6 games but have lost twice to St Johnstone.
St Johnstone vs Dundee: Prediction
Dundee’s current state is nothing to write home about, they have a lot of issues and have been already out of the League Cup. St Johnstone are the better team coming into this game.
We still don’t consider this game as a high scoring game, we are backing the Saints to win without conceding.
