Hibernian vs Hearts – Betting Analysis
Analyzing their previous head-to-head encounters, which date back to 01/02/2022, reveals that Hibernian has not had strong results in these games.
They haven’t been able to win anything at all, while Hearts have overwhelmed them and defeated them in 67% of those games.
They combined to score 15 goals over those matches, with 3 coming from The Hibees and 12 from The Jam Tarts. There are 2.5 goals scored on average per contest.
Lee Johnson, the manager of Hibernian, will be without the services of players Kyle Magennis (pelvis injury), Rocky Bushiri (ankle injury), Martin Boyle (knee surgery), and Aiden McGeady (hamstring injury).
David Marshall, Chris Cadden, CJ Egan-Riley, Will Fish, Marijan Cabraja, James Jeggo, Joe Newell, Harry McKirdy, Josh Campbell, Élie Youan, and Kevin Nisbet are likely to start for The Hibees in this game under a 4-2-3-1 formation.
Hearts must decide on a team with a constrained roster. The following individuals cannot be taken into consideration: Craig Gordon (fractured leg), Gary Mackay-Steven (foot surgery), Liam Boyce (ruptured cruciate ligament), Beni Baningime (injured cruciate ligament), and Craig Halkett (injured cruciate ligament). Due to his suspension, Robert Snodgrass will be unable to participate in this game.
Given their starting lineup of Ross Stewart, Michael Smith, Andrew Halliday, Kye Rowles, Stephen Kingsley, Jorge Grant, Peter Haring, Cameron Devlin, James Hill, Lawrence Shankland, and Alan Forrest, we lean toward believing that The Jam Tarts will use a 4-3-3 formation to open the game.
Hearts will undoubtedly be able to score goals against this Hibernian team, albeit it’s possible that they won’t give up as many as they do now.
