Hearts vs Partick Thistle Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Hearts’ disappointment in the Edinburgh derby continued with the team losing 2-0 to Hibernian during the weekend. Scott Allan opened the scoring for the hosts just before the hour mark. Jamie MacLaren struck the post with a thunderous effort but that did not stop him from scoring the second goal in the 80th minute. Partick Thistle were able to hold Aberdeen to a goalless draw at the Tynecastle stadium. This was a game with limited opportunities for both clubs, but the result keeps Alan Archibald’s team just above the bottom.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

There has been a high proportion of draws when these two teams met each other and it happens to be irrespective of the location. In the last five games, only one game has ended up producing a winner. Since both clubs come into this game carrying a winless run that stretches beyond five matches, confidence is low at both ends of the pitch. Partick Thistle will be quite happy with a point, as the club has been quite poor when it comes to away games. I would opt for a draw.

A reason behind the higher number of draws between these two teams is the struggle in front of goal. There appears to be no change on this front. Apart from one match, the last five meetings between Partick Thistle and Hearts has been a low scoring fixture. I would choose under 2.5 goals in this game.

Draw – 11/5

Hearts Preview

Hearts have taken a turn for the worse at the worst possible time in the campaign. Only a few weeks ago, Hearts looked likely contenders to finish in the top six places. Now, the club are at a serious risk of losing the sixth spot to Motherwell, as the club are only four points behind in the table but with a game in hand. Up until now, defence was a major reason behind Hearts remaining in the top six. However, a lack of threat up front is also starting to hurt the club – especially after the departure of Esmael Goncalves. Kyle Lafferty has been inconsistent with his goal return, even if he leads the scoring charts at the club.

 

Hearts Team News

Malaury Martin (tendon), Rory Currie (ligament), Jamie Brandon (cruciate ligament), Demetri Mitchell (knee), and Arnaud Djoum (Achilles tendon) are unavailable for manager Craig Levein.

Partick Thistle Preview

Partick Thistle are looking unlikely to move away from the relegation places anytime soon, as the club just keep on extending the winless run. Even though Partick Thistle are winless in six matches, there have been some positives for the club in recent weeks – like the narrow loss against Celtic and holding Aberdeen to a stalemate. Partick Thistle find themselves at the bottom of the pile when it comes to away form, as the team has only picked up seven points on the road this season.

Partick Thistle Team News

Stuart Bannigan (knee) is the only player unavailable for Partick Thistle.
