St. Mirren vs Hearts
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 28 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: The Simple Digital Arena (Paisley).
Mirren has been a lower-tier squad in the Premiership for some years, and this season too, the situation has not much potential to change. As of now, they have a single win from their six match-days so far, and is winless in their last four tries in the league, with three of them ending in losses.
In addition, the team has scored the least number of goals, but as a consolation has not conceded in plenty.
Taking into account the problems faced by the hosts, incoming Hearts will try to make the most of this meeting. They too have recorded a single win from their campaign so far, but have done so in a comparatively far better manner, with vastly superior stats.
St. Mirren vs Hearts Head-to-head (h2h)
- Ten of the previous thirteen wins went to the hosts of the day.
- Five of the former six clashes had goals from both sides of the pitch.
- The hosts won four of the prior six meetings at this stadium.
- Hearts have managed to win just two times at this venue in the last decade.
St. Mirren vs Hearts Prediction
In overall games, Hearts does come out on top owing to their superior stats, but the results look almost similar. As such, the home advantage holds special weightage here, and even more so when the previous h2h encounters are taken into account, where Mirren have performed extremely well.
As such, count on the home team to put up a brave fight and avoid a loss.
Coming to goals though, five of the previous six battles between the two have had the BTTS clause satisfied, and despite the away handicap, the guests have been offensively superior to their counterparts.
Finally, with both struggling at the moment for points, a fierce encounter is on the cards, and rightfully goals at either end of the pitch is a realistic expectation.
