Hearts to pull clear at the top of the table

Given both these sides sit at the summit of the Premiership table unbeaten and on 10 points a piece it’s fair to say they’ve both shown decent form to kick off the campaign. We’ve got a feeling Hearts are about to inflict a first defeat on Hibs though. For one thing, Hibs have only beaten Hearts in one of the last five head to head meetings. The other reason we lean towards a Hearts win is the quality of opposition they’ve faced in the opening weeks. Hibs have only played Motherwell who are expected to be amongst the top group of sides whilst Hearts have beaten Celtic and held Aberdeen.

The goals will fly in

For a moment, let’s forget about who will win the match. Instead, this prediction looks at how many goals the game will see and, in our opinion, it will be a few. Hearts have seen three of their last five games go over 2.5 with a game average of 3.0. Hibs measure up well on the over 2.5 stat too. Again, three of their past five have been over the required threshold but their game average is slightly better at 3.2.

Goals on both sides

We’ve just detailed why we think there will be a few goals in the match. Now we explain why we believe those goals will be contributed by both teams. Hearts have scored in their last 11 matches netting a total of 24 goals. The last time they failed to find the net was back in April. For Hibs, they last time they blanked in front of goal was in May; that was 14 games ago and they’ve bagged 30 goals in that time. With that in mind, it’s hard to imagine the defences coming out on top in this one.

Hearts vs Hibs: Team Preview

Hearts

Hearts might sit behind their visitors on goal difference at the top of the Premiership table but make no mistake about it, they are the form team in Scotland right now with just one defeat in their last 14 matches. Liam Boyce is one man that is in particularly good form; with four goals from his last four games he’ll be a threat throughout this encounter.

Hibs

Hibs find themselves top of the table after four games with their striker, Martin Boyle, top of the scoring charts. Boyle will be a menace throughout this match and Hearts will need to be alert to his every move; he’s scored eight in the last 10 and has netted in three consecutive game. It could be a straight shootout between him and Boyce that decides this game.
