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

Match preview

A key clash in the race for European football, with the two most-likely candidates to finish in third place going head-to-head in the capital.

Heart of Midlothian currently have the upper-hand, sat in that all-important third spot, six points clear of their visitors from the north.

The Jambos were last in action on Friday night, beating St Mirren 1-0 at home, thanks to Barrie McKay’s sweet first half strike.

Robbie Neilson’s side are now unbeaten in seven Premiership matches, their only defeat in the last ten coming at Ibrox.

Will Hearts open up an enormous gap between themselves and Aberdeen with another victory here?

The Dons surely cannot allow that to happen, as they seek to finish third, thereby automatically qualifying for a UEFA group stage for the first time since 2007.

Those donning red were in raptures on the cusp of half time, when Bojan Miovski’s neat finish gave Aberdeen a shock lead.

However, Rangers equalised on the hour mark and then, in injury time, Anthony Stewart was sent off for a horrendous, unnecessary tackle.

This gave the Reds a huge uphill battle in extra time and, sure enough, it was Rangers who scored, booking their place in February’s final.

When Aberdeen were last in league action, 11 days ago, Duk’s brace gave them a much-needed win over St Johnstone, their first victory in six games.

Here though, having endured over two hours of play at the National Stadium on Sunday, the Dons face a seriously tough task in Edinburgh.

Will Hearts make home advantage count at Tynecastle?
