Hibernian vs Motherwell Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Hibernian were able to come away with their recent visit to Celtic Park with a 1-0 defeat. Leigh Griffiths scored against his former club in the 25th minute, although Scott Sinclair had earlier come close with an effort that hit the woodwork. Motherwell were able to pick up a 1-1 draw with Hearts after a late equaliser. The two teams had a plethora of opportunities but it was Manuel Milinkovic who ultimately broke the deadlock in the 80th minute. Just when it seemed that Hearts were about to get a home win, Curtis Main headed in an equaliser in the dying moments of the match.

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

Betting Tips and Predictions

Motherwell are hoping to capitalise on Hibernian’s recent poor form in order to pick up a first victory over this club since 2013. Motherwell’s confidence levels have been boosted even further after the late equaliser against Hearts, while Hibernian looked devoid of ideas against Celtic. Despite being an away match, there is a greater reason to back a win for Motherwell.

Curtis Main has been able to find the back of the net in his last two appearances. He is coming up against a Hibernian outfit with just one clean sheet in 2018. I would choose Main to score anytime in the match.

Motherwell win –5.0

Curtis Main to score anytime –3.50

Hibernian Preview

Hibernian are yet to find their feet in the Scottish Premier League after losing their way since November. Earlier in the campaign, Hibernian appeared to be a strong contender for the Champions League qualification places. Now, the team are fighting to stay in the fourth spot with the likes of Hearts beating down their necks. Hibernian have only managed three wins in the last 11 games. The problems for manager Neil Lennon have multiplied in recent weeks with some injuries and suspensions. Anthony Stokes may be the top scorer at Hibernian, but he is without a goal in more than a month.

Hibernian Team News

Ross Laidlaw (shoulder fracture), Marvin Bartley (knock), Steven Whittaker (knee), and David Gray (Achilles tendon) are the players unavailable for Hibernian, while Anthony Stokes is suspended for the match.

Motherwell Preview

Motherwell have had a positive start to 2018 and are placed as potential favourites to knock Hibernian from the fourth spot. After a blistering start to the 2017-18 SPL campaign, Motherwell were guilty of losing their way towards the end of 2017. Now, Motherwell have received a lot of positives in the form of January signing Curtis Main being a key player in the last couple of weeks. Motherwell have also been able to progress into the fifth round of the Scottish FA Cup. The strong defensive record at the start of 2018 will be something that the club will be looking to build over the course of the year. January signing Curtis Main has already come up with two goals for Motherwell.

Motherwell Team News

Ellis Plummer (hamstring), Ryan Bowman (knee), and Elliott Frear (knee) are the names unavailable for Motherwell manager Steve Robinson.
