Hearts vs Aberdeen Match Prediction

By Phill Barrs

Hearts’ two-game unbeaten run came to a conclusion with a 2-1 loss against Motherwell. Despite taking the lead in the game through a fine long-range effort from Kyle Lafferty, Hearts conceded just before the second half through Ryan Bowman and Louis Moult. Aberdeen were able to establish a two-point advantage over Celtic after a 4-3 thrilling win over Partick Thistle. An early goal from Ryan Christie was cancelled out by Chris Erskine and Kris Doolan, but goals from Kenny McLean and Scott Wright put Aberdeen back in front. Partick Thistle refused to die down and equalised through Niall Keown just after half-time. However, a late goal from Adam Rooney proved decisive in the game. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Hearts are without a win against Aberdeen since May 2016. The club has suffered three consecutive defeats at the hands of this opponent. The appointment of Levein is likely to have a positive impact on the team, although John Daly was doing a reasonable job. Aberdeen, though, have been able to win three out of the last five away games against Hearts. Given the recent form of the team, I see great value in going with a win for Aberdeen. Even though this fixture has been a low scoring affair with only one in the last five experiencing more than 2.5 goals, Aberdeen’s weak defence has contributed to the last three matches witnessing more than 2.5 goals. A great pick would be to go with this game to produce over 2.5 goals.

Hearts Preview

Hearts were unable to make the most out of a strong position on the road, as they slipped to a loss against Motherwell. After managing back-to-back clean sheets, the manner in which the club lost against Motherwell would be disappointing to interim manager John Daly. The club has moved to bring in Craig Levein as the permanent replacement for Ian Cathro, who was sacked just before the start of the season. Levein has been the director of football since 2014, but this will be his first managerial job since he left Scotland national team in 2012. Isma is the top scorer at Hearts with two goals.

Hearts Team News

Hearts are not suffering from injuries or suspensions coming into the game.

Aberdeen Preview

Aberdeen have made a brilliant start to the season after managing four consecutive wins. The lack of European football is expected to help the club, who have been able to establish an early two-point advantage over Celtic. Manager Derek McInnes was able to bring in former Rangers defender Dominic Ball from Rotherham on transfer deadline day. Despite the consecutive wins, manager McInnes will not be pleased with the defence performances of his team. Aberdeen have not kept a clean sheet in their last three league matches while they have conceded five in the process. Stevie May is the top scorer at the club with two goals in the three games.

Aberdeen have a fully fit squad available for this game.
