Our prediction for this Scottish Cup match:
All eyes will be on Hampden Park when St Johnstone and Hibernian meet in the Scottish Cup final. The Saints won their first and only Scottish Cup trophy in 2014, with the team beating Dundee United in the title game, and, no doubt, they are eager to repeat the success. It has to be noted that head coach Callum Davidson can count on key players for the decider.
Hibernian, on the other hand, are eyeing their fourth Scottish Cup trophy. The Hibs set up a meeting with St Johnstone by beating Dundee United 2-0, but they will have a big fish to fry in the Hampden Park showdown. A close encounter is on the cards in Glasgow, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. Both Chris Cadden and Sean Mackie remain on the sidelines through injuries for the nominal visitors.
Highlighted Player (Jason Kerr):
Jason Kerr is a professional footballer who plays for St Johnstone as a defender. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, on February 6, 1997, Jason Kerr is a product of the St Johnstone football academy. He started his senior career in 2014, and after ending his loan spells with East Fife and Queen of the South, he returned to the McDiarmid Park outfit in 2018.
He made his debut with the Saints in the Scottish Cup game against Albion Rovers on January 29, 2019. Jason Kerr has six caps with the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to receive a call-up for the senior team.
He scored his first goal for St Johnstone in a 4-1 defeat to Rangers on February 27, 2018. His primary position on the field is a centre-back, but he is capable of producing good displays as a central midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right, and he wears the number 15 shirt at St Johnstone.
Highlighted Team (Hibernian):
Founded in August 1875, Hibernian are the Scottish Premier League team that play home matches at Easter Road. The capacity of the venue is 20,421, and it was opened in 1893. The Hibs wear light green shirts with white sleeves and white shorts in home matches, while light grey is the dominant colour of their away kit.
Hibernian clinched their first Scottish league trophy back in the 1902/03 season, and they were the dominant force in Scottish football in the early 50s, securing three titles more from 1948 to 1952. The Easter Road outfit recorded their biggest win on September 3, 1881, with the team rolling over Black Watch Highlanders 22-1.
In February 1961, the Hibs suffered the biggest defeat in the club's history as they were beaten by Airdrie 11-1. Hibernian and Hearts face each other in the Edinburgh derby. The rivalry between the two clubs is considered one of the oldest rivalries in world football.
