These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.
It won’t be settled inside 90
First of all, we would like to point out that these teams met in this tournament last season, and that game was decided on penalties. As a matter of fact, these teams tend to draw a lot whenever they meet; their last two, and five of their last eight encounters ended in draws. To be fair, both teams have drawn a lot of games recently; Hibernian have drawn all of their last three games, while Motherwell drew three of their last four games. With this in mind, we believe that this game will go into extra time.
There will be a nil in the scoreline
Hibernian have been really solid defensively in recent games; they did not concede a single goal in their last four games. On the other hand, Hibs have not been able to find the back of the net; they did not score a single goal in their last three games. At least one side blanked in Hibernian’s last four, and seven of their last eight games. Additionally, we would like to point out that meetings between these sides have mostly been one-sided in terms of goals; at least one of these teams failed to score in nine of their last 13 clashes. Considering Hibs are coming off three consecutive goalless draws; at least one of these teams should blank.
A low scoring goals
Encounters between Motherwell and Hibernian tend to be on the low-scoring side; five of their last eight meetings went below the 2.5 goal mark. Both teams have been involved in a lot of low-scoring games recently; Hibs’ last four, and seven of their last eight games went under 2.5. Similarly, Motherwell have had their fair share of low-scoring games; three of their last four games saw fewer than three goals scored. On that note, our final prediction for this match is under 2.5 total goals.
