Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Hearts play host to Motherwell at Tynecastle Stadium in the Premiership round 8. Hearts aim to build on a thrilling 3-0 win over Livingston, and you should bear in mind that they have yet to suffer a loss in the new domestic campaign. A man to watch in the home team will be Liam Boyce, who has netted five goals in the Scottish top flight so far this season.
The Well, on the other hand, defeated Ross County 2-1 in their last league match, with the team retaining their spot in top four. Since both sides have been in a fine form of late, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. Jamie Brandon should be the only absentee in the home team, while Solholm Johansen is sidelined for the visitors. In their last encounter in the Scottish Premiership the two teams played out a 1-1 draw.
