Partick Thistle vs Hibernian Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Partick Thistle take to the field after having achieved a 1-1 draw with Hearts in their recent visit to the Tynecastle stadium. Esmael Goncalves provided the opening goal for the home team after 54 minutes. This was a decisive goal, but Partick Thistle never gave up and came up with the equaliser in the 85th minute through Kris Doolan. Hibernian failed to win a second consecutive league match after a 1-1 draw with Hamilton during the weekend. Simon Murray had provided the lead for Neil Lennon’s team after 29 minutes, but a second-half equaliser from Antonio Rojano denied three points for the away team.

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

Betting Tips and Predictions

Partick Thistle have been able to win the last two home matches, while Hibernian come into the game without a defeat in eight away matches this season. Partick Thistle have beaten Hibernian just once in the last five meetings – since 2013. Even though Hibernian have been unable to get a win in the last two games, the performances have remained good. I would go with a victory for Hibernian. Partick Thistle have hosted this opponent only twice in the last decade. One of those matches witnessed under 2.5 goals, which has been the order of the day for most of the recent games involving Partick Thistle. Only one of the last five games for Archibald’s team has produced more than 2.5 goals. I would go with under 2.5 goals in this game.

Partick Thistle Preview

Partick Thistle may have lost only one game in the last five SPL 2017-18 matches, but the team remain stuck to the bottom of the table. Yet, manager Alan Archibald and his team may only hope for the best with his team only one point behind Dundee. Crucially, Partick Thistle have played a game less than the rest of the top six teams. The club has the worst defensive record with just 12 goals scored – a record shared with Kilmarnock. At the back, Partick Thistle have conceded 23 goals – at almost two goals per match. Blair Spittal and Chris Erskine are the leading scorers at the club with three goals each.

Partick Thistle Team News

Partick Thistle have a fully fit squad available for the match.

Hibernian Preview

The last two matches have been rather disappointing for Hibernian, whose substantial lead over the likes of Motherwell and St Johnstone has been cut down in recent weeks. Hibernian have also fallen behind Rangers into the fourth place. Still, Lennon’s team have been doing much better than expected. The team has scored 23 goals – the third-highest in the division – and conceded 17 so far. Over the last six matches, only Celtic have taken more points than Hibernian. Momentum was a key part of Hibernian’s strong start, and Lennon will be hoping to rediscover the same in the coming weeks. Simon Murray is now ahead of Anthony Stokes in terms of the Hibernian top scorer charts for the campaign with six goals in 15 games.

Hibernian Team News

Neil Lennon has a fully fit squad available at his disposal.
