Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Tynecastle Park will host Saturday’s relegation six-pointer between Hearts and Hamilton. Hearts aim to make amends for a 5-0 defeat to Celtic, but given their shaky defence, we do not believe that home win should be considered. January signing Marcel Langer misses the match through suspension, which is yet another reason why we are not tempted to put our money on Daniel Stendel’s charges.
Hamilton, on the other hand, suffered four defeats in the previous five league matches. Considering that the visitors have been struggling at the back in the Scottish elite division of late as well, we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score. In their last meeting at Tynecastle Park the two teams played out a 2-2 draw, which is yet another reason why both teams to score betting option should be considered.
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 (Hamilton):
Nicknamed the Accies, Hamilton are the Scottish Premier League club founded back in 1874. Hamilton’s home ground is New Douglas Park, the venue which was opened in 2001. The capacity of the stadium is only 6,018. The Accies clinched their first domestic trophy in the 1985/86 season, with the team finishing the process eleven points clear of second-placed Falkirk.
Two seasons later, Hamilton repeated the success, with the team clinching their third and last Scotland Premier League trophy in the 2007/2008 season. The Accies wear white shirts with red stripes when playing at home ground, while blue and green are the dominant colours of their away kit. Fellow clubs based in Lanarkshire, Motherwell, and Albion Rovers, are considered the club’s main rivals.
Speaking of the club’s biggest win, you should bear in mind that Hamilton outclassed Morton 10-0 in May 2014. Crystal Palace midfielder James McCarthy is considered one of the most notable footballers who started their senior career at Hamilton.
