Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Dens Park will host Saturday’s football game between Dundee FC and Hearts, the two top-table sides. The Dark Blues are eager to stay in the Championship Group berth and their display in a midweek draw with Aberdeen is surely fuelling fans with optimism ahead of the visit of Hearts. Dundee are eyeing their fourth home win of the process, but they face a tough challenge against the Jambos. Defender Antonio Portales is sidelined with a hamstring problem, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.
The visitors, on the other hand, are on a three-game winning run in the Scottish top flight. As Hearts have been scoring goals for fun of late, we predict that they will give fans yet another reason to celebrate this weekend. Kye Rowles is back from suspension, while both Cameron Devlin and Liam Boyce are sidelined with injuries.
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.
