Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Sunday’s football game between Hearts and Motherwell will bring down the curtain on day 14 of the new Premiership campaign. Hearts proved their worth in a 2-1 win over Ross County, with the team putting an end to their four-match winless run, and seeing that key players were rested in the Conference League encounter against Basaksehir, home win should be considered. All Atkinson, Baningime, Boyce, Halkett, Mackay-Steven, and Rowles should miss out through injuries.
The Well aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Dundee United, but they face a difficult task in Sunday’s showdown. In their last meeting at Tynecastle Park Hearts defeated Motherwell 2-1, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. As for the away side, both Joseph Efford and Nathan McGinley are sidelined with injuries, while Rolando Aarons is a major doubt.
