Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Saturday’s football game at Fountain of Youth Stadium pits together Hamilton Academical and Hearts, the two teams who sit in the danger zone in the Scotland Premiership standings. Hamilton are on a three-game losing run in the national championship, with the team failing to find the net in back-to-back defeats to the likes of St. Mirren and Aberdeen.
The Accies are eyeing their first win in the Scottish top flight since September 28, 2019, and we are positive that they are going to leave their hearts on the field in the relegation six-pointer. The Jambos, on the other hand, have been struggling in front of goal as well. A low-scoring affair is on the cards at Fountain of Youth Stadium, and we predict that the two teams who are level on points are going to share the spoils on Matchday 19.

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.
