Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Dundee will look to make amends for a 2-1 loss to St. Mirren when they take on Hearts on Sunday afternoon. The Dark Blues are eyeing their first win of the process and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against the Killie. Both Aaron Donnelly and Antonio Portales are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
The Jambos, on the other hand, are eyeing their third consecutive clean sheet of the process, which is probably the main reason why we are going to bet on under 2.5 goals. Alex Cochrane is banned for the match, while fellow defender Craig Halkett has yet to overcome a knee injury, speaking of the visiting team. You should bear in mind that under 2.5 goals have been netted in two of their last three meetings in the Scottish top flight.
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.
