Hearts vs Dundee FC Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Hearts’ long wait for a first win at the improved Tynecastle stadium was finally realised with a 1-0 victory over Motherwell. Kyle Lafferty came up with the only goal in the 39th minute to provide Hearts with a crucial victory, while Motherwell were largely restricted to chances from set piece situations. Dundee’s three-game unbeaten run ended with a narrow 1-0 loss against Aberdeen at home. In a game that was expected to be separated by a handful of goals, Scott McKenna came up with the only goal just after half-time. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Dundee may have been on a decent run of form over the last few weeks and might have suffered in a loss against Aberdeen, but this game sees Hearts coming in as a strong favourite for victory. Hearts possess a four-game unbeaten record – including the recent win over Motherwell. On the head-to-head front, the home team has been victorious in the last four meetings between these two teams. I would choose a win for Hearts. The strong aspect of Hearts in the recent few matches has been strong defensive strength, which is quite apparent from recent games witnessing less than 2.5 goals over the last four. Despite making up several places and points over the last few weeks, Dundee are not great going forward with the team only managing 17 goals – two more than Hearts. I would opt for under 2.5 goas in the game.

Hearts Preview

Hearts were able to get the much anticipated victory at the revamped Tynecastle stadium during the weekend. This victory was a massive importance to Craig Levein’s team as they went on a five-game winless run that was starting to affect their place in the top six. Hearts have been left hanging on to the final sixth-place over the last few weeks. Since September, the team has managed only three league victories with just one game being a home success at the Murrayfield stadium. Despite being in the top six, Hearts have only scored 15 league goals and it is the second lowest tally in the division – behind Partick Thistle. Kyle Lafferty is back as the top scorer at the club with six goals in 16.

Hearts Team News

Rory Currie (ligament) is unavailable due to injuries, while Jamie Brandon is serving a suspension.

Dundee FC Preview

Over the last few weeks, Dundee have been able to make up significant ground in the chase for a top six position. A run of just one defeat in the last four league matches – including two wins – has been the backbone of the team’s push away from the bottom. Only a few weeks ago, Dundee were at the bottom of the table but they have now jumped into the 10th spot. The team now enters into a crucial run of matches against the likes of Partick Thistle, Hearts, and St Johnstone. These are teams struggling in the last few weeks and represent the best possible choice for Dundee to increase the points tally. AJ Leitch-Smith is the top scorer with four goals in 11 games.

Dundee FC Team News

Lewis Spence (malleolar) is unavailable due to an injury, while Scott Bain is suspended for the match.
