Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Saturday’s football game at Fir Park pits together Motherwell and Hearts, the two teams who have different ambitions in the 2019/2020 season. Motherwell are eyeing a place in European competitions, while Hearts’ main goal is to secure yet another Scotland Premier League survival. The hosts head into the match following a thrilling 3-0 win at St. Mirren where talented attacker James Scott scored a brace.
The Scotland rising star is brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of Hearts, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay. Considering that Motherwell hammered St. Johnstone 4-0 in their last home game in the national championship, we are tempted to put our money on Stephen Robinson’s troops. Austin MacPhee’s men, on the other hand, have been struggling at the back of late. Hearts failed to find the net in the last five away games in the league, and they are unlikely to spoil Motherwell’s party at Fir Park.
Highlighted Player (Allan Campbell):
Born in Glasgow, Scotland, on July 4, 1998, Allan Campbell is a Scottish footballer who plays for Motherwell. Campbell has been playing for the Steelmen since 2008 when he was a part of the Motherwell youth team.

Allan Campbell has 19 caps for the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to receive a call-up for the Scotland senior team. His primary position is a defensive midfielder, but he is used as a central midfielder as well.

Highlighted Team (Hearts):
Founded in 1874, Hearts are professional football club that compete in the Scotland Premiership. The Jam Tarts welcome their rivals at Tynecastle Park Gorgie, the stadium which can hold up to 20,000 spectators.
While the original Hearts strip was all white shirts and trousers with maroon trimmings, the club’s current home kit is all maroon with a white-collar. Hearts have won the Scottish Premier League title four times (1894/95, 1896/97, 1957/58, 1959/60), but they have been in Celtic and Rangers’ shadows in the 21st century. Hibernian are considered the club’s fiercest rivals. The two teams first met back in 1875 on Christmas Day, with Hearts winning the match 1-0. The Tynecastle Park Gorgie recorded their biggest win in 1880, with the team rolling over Anchor 21-0 in the FA Cup.
The club’s heaviest defeat came eight years later as Hearts were beaten by Vale of Leven 8-1 in the Scottish Cup. John Robertson is leading the club’s all-time goal-scoring chart, with the left winger netting 214 goals for the club.
