Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Hibernian play host to Aberdeen at their Easter Road on day 8 of the new Premiership campaign. The Hibs aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Aberdeen, and a triumph in Saturday’s clash should see them climb to the Championship Group berth. All Maciej Dabrowski, Aiden McGeady, Kyle Magennis, and Kevin Nisbet should miss out with injuries, while defender Demetri Mitchell is a major doubt.
The Dons, on the other hand, have been in a fine form of late, with the team beating both St Johnstone and Livingston, while sharing the spoils with Ross County. Aberdeen are high on confidence ahead of the trip to Edinburg, and, taking everything into account, we believe that they are capable of holding Hibernian to a draw at Easter Road. Both Callum Roberts and Connor Barron are sidelined with injuries for the away side.
Highlighted Player (Christian Doidge):
Over the years Christian Doidge has established himself as one of the best attackers in Scotland Premiership. Born on August 25, 1992 in Newport, Doidge is a Wales international who plays for Hibernian in the Scottish top flight.
He is a product of the Southampton football academy, but he did not see any game action in the Premier League with the Saints. The towering striker played for Bristol Rovers during his youth career as well before joining Cwmbran Celtic at senior level. He played for the likes of Barry Town, Carmanthen Town, Dag & Red, Dartford (loan), Forest Green Rovers, and Bolton Wanderers (loan) as well before signing a deal with the Hibs.
Christian Doidge made his Scotland Premier League debut on August 3, 2019 in a 1-0 win over St. Mirren. The Wales attacker scored his first league goal for the Hibs against the same opponent three months late. Doidge has yet to receive a call-up for the Wales national football team.
Highlighted Team (Aberdeen):
Nicknamed the Dons, Aberdeen are professional football club that compete in the Scottish Premiership. Pittodrie Stadium is the club’s home ground, and it can hold up to 20,866 spectators. The Dons were one of the dominant forces in Scottish football during Sir Alex Ferguson’s era, with the team winning three Scottish League titles from 1980 to 1985.
However, Aberdeen clinched their first domestic trophy in the 1954/55 season, with the team finishing the process three points clear of Scottish giants Celtic. The club’s biggest success came in the 1982/83 season when they defeated the famous Spanish club Real Madrid 2-1 in the title game. Later in 1983, Aberdeen won the UEFA Super Cup as they defeated Hamburger SV 2-0 at Volksparkstadion.
The Dons are well known for their red home kit, while away shirt has a shiny gold base colour. Inverness Caledonian are considered one of the club’s biggest rivals, with the two teams facing each other in the North derby.
