Scroll down for all of our predictions, poll and stats for the Hibernian v Motherwell game - plus the latest match odds.
Hibernian are hoping to win again following a 2-0 Premiership success over Hamilton Academical.
In that game, Hibernian managed 61% possession and 17 attempts at goal with 8 of them on target. For Hibernian, the scorers were Martin Boyle (13') and Josh Doig (70'). For their opponents, Hamilton Academical had 8 attempts at goal with 6 of them on target.
A recurring trait of recent Hibernian games is the number of results with a nil in them.
From their previous six clashes leading up to this one, in as many as 5 of them a wager on BTTS would've lost. That kind of trend isn’t assured to follow through into this match, though.
Analysis of their past results shows that Hibernian:
- haven't lost in the league to Motherwell in their last 4 matches.
- are unbeaten in their last 2 home league matches.
Previously, Motherwell drew 0-0 in the Premiership match with St Mirren.
In that match, Motherwell had 47% possession and 13 shots at goal with 2 on target. St Mirren got 6 shots on goal with 2 of them on target.
Graham Alexander's Motherwell have managed to stick the ball in the net 5 times in the course of their previous 6 matches. The overall goals that they have conceded during the equivalent period equals 10.
Coming into this fixture, Motherwell have left without a victory over Hibernian when they've played them away from home in the last 7 matches in the league. Not good at all.
Head to head
A glance at their prior head to head meetings going back to 16/03/2019 shows that Hibernian have won 3 of them & Motherwell 1, with the tally of drawn results being 2.
A sum of 12 goals were shared by the two clubs in these games, with 8 of them for The Hibees and 4 being from The Steelmen. That’s an average goals per game of 2.
Team News: Hibernian
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just the lone fitness concern for the Hibernian boss Jack Ross to be concerned with from an otherwise complete group of players. Sean Mackie (Hamstring Injury) misses out.
Team News: Motherwell
In an otherwise available group of players, there’s just the lone fitness worry for the Motherwell manager Graham Alexander to be concerned about. Scott Fox (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game.
When taking all factors into account, Motherwell would be disappointed if they were not to find the net against this Hibernian side, however that might not quite prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We’re expecting a close game with a 2-1 win for Hibernian at the end of this one. Looking forward to seeing how this one unfolds.
