Aberdeen vs Heart of Midlothian betting tips: Scottish Premiership preview, predictions and odds

Match preview

After another midweek mauling in the Europa Conference League, how will Hearts react as domestic business returns?

On Thursday evening, the Jambos were 4-0 down after just 38 minutes against Fiorentina, eventually losing 5-1.

Stephen Humphrys’ consolation goal, coming just after half time, sparking ironically wild celebration from the 4,000 who’d made the trip to Stadio Artemio Franchi.

So, Heart of Midlothian have just three points in Group A, needing to beat RFS at home and then İstanbul Başakşehir away to have any chance of progressing.

Back in the Premiership, Robbie Neilson’s side came from 2-0 down to draw with Kilmarnock last weekend.

Humphrys halving the deficit before, in the 92nd minute, Nathaniel Atkinson’s stunning strike pinched a point at Rugby Park.

This means Hearts start the weekend fifth, three points below their Edinburgh rivals with a game in hand.

Aberdeen meanwhile continue to be excellent at home, but pretty diabolical on the road.

Last time out, the Dons were smashed 4-0 by then bottom of the table Dundee United at Tannadice.

Ross McCrorie’s late own goal, heading the ball past his own goalkeeper Kelle Roos, summing up a miserable night.

At home though, Jim Goodwin’s side have won three of four matches in the league, scoring a total of 15 goals.

So, will Aberdeen worsen Hearts’ miserable week in this clash at Pittodrie?
