Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Sunday’s football game between Aberdeen and Hearts will bring down the curtain on day 11 of the new Premiership campaign. The Dons aim to make amends for a massive 4-0 loss to rock-bottom Dundee United, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against the Jam Tarts. All Barron, Duncan, and Clarkson are pushing for recalls to the starting XI, while midfielder Callum Roberts has yet to overcome a hamstring problem.
Hearts, on the other hand, have been involved in some high-scoring games of late, and seeing that the Dons crushed Kilmarnock 4-1 in their last home fixture, over 2.5 goals betting option should be considered. As for the away team, all Kye Rowles, Liam Boyce, and Craig Halkett are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players ahead of the trip to Aberdeen City. In their last meeting at the venue Aberdeen defeated Hearts 2-1.
Highlighted Player (Liam Boyce):
Liam Boyce is a Northern Ireland international who plays for Burton Albion in the League One. Boyce was born in Belfast on April 8, 1991 and he started his senior career at Cliftonville.
The 184-cm tall attacker played for the likes of Werder Bremen II and Ross County as well before becoming Burton Albion’s record signing in the 2017 summer transfer window.Liam Boyce missed almost entire 2017/2018 season through a serious knee injury, returning to action on February 3, 2018. Speaking of his international career, Boyce made his Northern Ireland debut against Scotland on February 9, 2011, coming as a substitute for Niall McGinn.
Six years later, on June 2, 2017, he scored his first goal for the Northern Ireland national team in a 1-0 win over New Zealand. Liam Boyce’s main position is centre-forward, but he is capable of producing fine performances as a second striker as well.
Highlighted Team (Hearts):
Founded in 1874, Hearts are professional football club that compete in the Scotland Premiership. The Jam Tarts welcome their rivals at Tynecastle Park Gorgie, the stadium which can hold up to 20,000 spectators.
While the original Hearts strip was all white shirts and trousers with maroon trimmings, the club’s current home kit is all maroon with a white-collar. Hearts have won the Scottish Premier League title four times (1894/95, 1896/97, 1957/58, 1959/60), but they have been in Celtic and Rangers’ shadows in the 21st century. Hibernian are considered the club’s fiercest rivals. The two teams first met back in 1875 on Christmas Day, with Hearts winning the match 1-0. The Tynecastle Park Gorgie recorded their biggest win in 1880, with the team rolling over Anchor 21-0 in the FA Cup.
The club’s heaviest defeat came eight years later as Hearts were beaten by Vale of Leven 8-1 in the Scottish Cup. John Robertson is leading the club’s all-time goal-scoring chart, with the left winger netting 214 goals for the club.
