Dundee FC vs Hearts Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Dundee fell to a third consecutive loss, as Aberdeen were able to get a narrow 1-0 win over Neil McCann’s team at the Pittodrie Stadium. Graeme Shinnie scored the only goal of the game in the 35th minute, as he capitalised on Dundee goalkeeper Elliot Parish making a judgement error. Hearts ended a sequence of five winless matches by beating Partick Thistle 3-0 at home. It was a brilliant first half for Craig Levein’s men, as they romped to a 3-0 lead through goals from Kyle Lafferty, Steven Naismith, and John Souttar.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Hearts struggle when it comes to matches at the Dens Park, as they have lost their previous two visits to this ground. Even though Dundee have lost five out of the last six matches, the strong performance against Aberdeen gives reason to back Neil McCann’s team in this game. Dundee hope to end a sequence of five consecutive losses at the Dens Park. A positive result for Dundee can go a long way towards proving themselves for the last two regular-season matches – against Celtic and Rangers. I would go with a win for Dundee.

Hearts produced a scintillating first-half performance against Partick Thistle, but the club’s offensive record over the last few matches has been poor. Especially in end of the matches, Hearts have been unable to score in two out of the last three away matches. As both teams are not strong offensively, the best option would be to back under 2.5 goals.

Dundee FC Preview

There is a significant possibility of Dundee ending the regular campaign on the same disastrous note, as the team are only up against the top six outfits in the last three matches. Lack of goals continues to be a worry for Dundee, who have not scored in the last three league matches. For the time being, the threat of relegation is only provided by Partick Thistle, who are two points behind in the table. Dundee hold a slightly better six-point advantage over bottom-club Ross County. Even though Dundee have been on a three-game losing streak, the club can take a lot of heart from their performance against Everton.

Dundee FC Team News

Marcus Haber (knee) continues to be the only injury worry for Dundee manager Neil McCann coming into this game.

Hearts Preview

The string of winless matches can finally came to an end for Hearts and it could not have come at a better time for Craig Levein’s team. After coming under pressure from St Johnstone, the victory helps establish a five-point advantage over Tommy Wright and his men. There is a strong possibility of retaining the top six position with only two matches left in the regular campaign. The departure of Esmael Goncalves in January dented the goal threat in the team, but Kyle Lafferty returning to form – with his 10th goal of the campaign – is likely to hold Hearts in good stead in the remaining two regular-season matches.

Hearts Team News

Hearts will be without Jamie Brandon (cruciate ligament), Angus Beith (hip), Malaury Martin (tendon), Demetri Mitchell (knee), and Rory Currie (ligament) due to injuries.
