St. Johnstone vs Hamilton Academical
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Wednesday, 30 December 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: McDiarmid Park.

Both teams are considered to be the worst in the competition, and are placed 10th and 11th in the table. Note that the league comprises a total of just 12 teams.

Moreover, either team has been defensively a disaster in the last several match-ups, and have been conceding in plenty in the process.

In fact, the Accies have let in the most number of goals of all the teams in the contest – 45 from 19 fixtures, and note that only one other squad has even let in more than 30 goals in the whole league.

On top of that, majority of h2h clashes have also had goals in plenty, including the most recent one, which was an eight-goal affair.

As such, expect a goal-fest this weekend at the McDiarmid Park.

St. Johnstone vs Hamilton: Prediction

The Saints are on a four-game losing run, and had conceded two or more goals in all these fixtures. They have also won just twice at home since August, and have lost three of their past four appearances here.

Meanwhile, their opposite number had lost ten of their preceding fifteen match-ups, and had also conceded two or more goals in ten of their last fifteen overall games. Do also take note that they had conceded the most number of goals of all the teams in Premiership.

On the road, they had lost seven of their former eight games as well.

On top of all that, majority of recent h2h meetings have had goals in plenty – which included the eight-goal thriller that took place in October.

As such, expect another high-scoring game this Wednesday.
