St. Johnstone vs Hibernian Prediction & Match Preview

St. Johnstone vs Hibernian
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Sunday, 23 August 2020
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: McDiarmid Park (Perth).

The recent loss at home against Aberdeen with a 0-1 scoreline will probably affect the morale of the players in the home team. Callum Davidson will have to pick up his team from the loss, but it won’t be easy when they are facing a stronger side in the mix like Hibernian.

They have picked up only 4 points from their four appearances in the campaign, trailing 6 points behind the Hibs. Hibernian is unbeaten in their four matches in the schedule this season so far, following a goalless draw at home against Motherwell in the least league clash.

Two of their recent three fixtures this season came in clashes away from home. So, Jack Ross and his men will come in hot for the host to handle at Perth.

St. Johnstone vs Hibernian Head-to-head (h2h)

St. Johnstone vs Hibernian Prediction

The Hibs are on an unbeaten run in the league and have also stayed unbeaten in all the h2h meetings with the host in the last year’s fixtures. The double chance favoring Hibernian will probably be the best bet for the punters.

It has to be noted that BTTS has been a regular result in their h2h fixtures since 2016. Eight of their last ten h2h clashes have seen both teams finding the back of the net in the game. Based on that, the BTTS will probably serve as a suitable option for the punters.
