Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Hibernian play host to Ross County at their Easter Road in what is expected to be an interesting Premier League game. The Hibs could not have wished for a better start to the season, with the team beating Motherwell on the road, and it is no wonder the bookies see them as favourites to win Sunday’s clash. Sean Mackie is sidelined through injury, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.
Ross County, on the other hand, head into the match following a goalless draw with St. Johnstone. The Staggies failed to create a descent goal-scoring opportunity in the season opener, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. In their last meeting in the Scottish top flight Hibernian defeated Ross County 2-1, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.
