Hibernian vs Partick Thistle Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Hibernian were able to snatch a point from the recent away game against St Johnstone after the 1-1 draw. Efe Ambrose put Hibernian in front after just two minutes, but Lennon’s team received a major setback when Ofir Marciano received a straight red card in the 14th minute. After managing to hold out for much of the game, Hibernian’s resistance fell down in the 83rd minute when Christopher Kane scored. Partick Thistle’s winless run hit a new low after a 3-0 loss against Hearts. Kyle Lafferty and Steven Naismith scored inside the opening 21 minutes, while John Souttar’s goal just before half-time effectively ended the contest.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Hibernian have been producing decent performances of late. They are up against a Partick Thistle outfit that has suffered a loss at half-time and full-time in eight out of the 15 away matches this season. Hibernian have been winning at half-time in four out of the last six matches. I would back Lennon’s team to win both halves with ease.

Games involving Partick Thistle have been filled with goals even if Alan Archibald’s team have only managed a paltry three goals in the last six league matches. This is due to a horrendous defence, which is the third worst in the division. Lennon has watched his team score a minimum of two goals in the last three matches at the Easter Road stadium. I would back this game to produce over 2.5 goals.

Hibernian to win at half-time and full-time – 11/8

Total goals over 2.5 – 21/20

Hibernian saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played against Partick Thistle

Hibernian Preview

Hibernian have been on a brilliant unbeaten run which has helped keep the club away from the clutches of Kilmarnock, who have been one of the best teams in the SPL over the last few months. There was a significant danger of Hibernian losing out to Steve Clarke’s team when it comes to the battle for the fourth place. Lennon’s team are now four points behind the Europa League positions. As it stands, they only stand to reach the Europa League through a play-off. Hence, Lennon will be keen to make a push for the third place. It will not be easy – even if Hibernian are at home in the next two games.

Hibernian Team News

Lennon will be without David Gray (Achilles tendon), Ross Laidlaw (shoulder), and Vykintas Slivka (knee) due to injuries.

Partick Thistle Preview

The relegation worries have deepened for Partick Thistle, who are without a win in the last seven games across all competitions. Alan Archibald saw his team last manage a victory in January. Since then, Partick Thistle have been unable to win even in the FA Cup matches. The club are occupying a relegation play-off position, but the possibility of moving away from the 11th spot does remain even now – as Dundee are only three points ahead in the table. Partick Thistle’s return of three goals in the last six games is the lowest tally amongst all SPL teams.

Partick Thistle Team News

Stuart Bannigan is the only injury worry for Partick Thistle.
