Hearts to take the points

Both teams have not been playing too well lately, Hearts have won three and lost three of their last six games; Dundee have been relatively worse however, they’ve lost three in a row. Dundee have also struggled in front of goal recently; they’ve failed to score in two of those three games. It’s worth mentioning that Dundee’s manager James McPake has beaten Hearts’ manager Robbie Nielson just once in seven meetings between the two; he has lost four of those encounters, with two draws in between. Hearts have beaten Dundee in three of their last five meetings, losing just once in that stretch; considering Dundee’s losing streak, we believe that Hearts will win.

Someone will fail to score

We’ve already pointed out that Dundee have struggled in front of goal recently; they’ve failed to score in two of their last three games. We should also mention that Dundee’s defence has had their fair share of good games; they’ve kept three clean sheets in their last seven games. Dundee’s games tend to be one-sided when it comes to scoring goals; at least one team has failed to score in four of their last five games. Similarly, Hearts have failed to score in three of their last five games whilst keeping a clean sheet in the other two; one side has blanked in all of their last five games. With this in mind, one of these teams will likely not score.

Don’t bank on goals

Both teams have not scored a lot of goals recently; Hearts have blanked in three of their last five games, they’ve scored just three goals in that stretch. Conversely, the Jam Tarts have kept two clean sheets in that stretch, conceding five goals. Hearts’ games tend to be on the low-scoring side; as all of their last five games have gone below the 2.5 goal mark. In the same vein, Dundee have failed to score in two of their last five games whilst keeping two clean sheets in that five game stretch. Considering both teams have not been very efficient at scoring goals, this will likely be a low scoring affair.
