Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Dundee United will look to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Aberdeen when they take on Ross County in the Premiership round 19. The Terrors are stuck at the bottom with only 12 points on their account, but Wednesday’s game could be the turning point for the home team. The good news for the hosts is that boss Liam Fox will have a full squad to choose from. Meanwhile, the Jambos proved their worth in a 3-1 win over Kilmarnock, with the team climbing to top six in the standings.
However, beating Dundee United on the road is easier said than done, which is probably the main reason why we are going to put our money on draw. Keep in mind that Australia international Kye Rowles is back from suspension for the visiting team. You should know that 21 goals in total have been netted in the previous four meetings between the two sides in all competitions.

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.
