Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Saturday’s football game at McDiarmid Park pits together St Johnstone and Hibernian, who face each other in the opening match of the season. The Saints aim to build on back-to-back League Cup wins over Elgin City and Ayr, and they must be high on spirits ahead of the visit of Hibernian. Keep in mind, though, that all Alistair Crawford, Tony Gallacher, Chris Kane, and David Wotherspoon will miss the season opener with injuries.
The Hibs, on the other hand, did well to beat Norwich City in a warm-up game, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the trip to Perth. Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards, and we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw. Both Kyle Magennis and Kevin Nisbet should miss out with injuries, while veteran winger Aiden McGeady is likely to make his Hibs debut against St Johnstone.
