Heart of Midlothian vs Aberdeen match preview

A potentially decisive clash in the race for European qualification.

Assuming Celtic beat Caley Thistle in next month’s Scottish Cup Final, third place in the Scottish Premiership secures guaranteed UEFA group stage football, a luxury clubs outwith the Old Firm scarcely enjoy.

Last season, it was Hearts who comfortably claimed that coveted third spot, but Aberdeen are on course to dethrone them.

A week ago, Aberdeen were held to a goalless draw by Hibs at Pittodrie, with Kelle Roos the hero, saving a late penalty; how crucial could that moment prove to be?

Barry Robson’s side have failed to win either match since the split, also beaten 1-0 at Ibrox, but had enjoyed seven successive victories beforehand.

So, the Dons remain third, knowing a victory in Edinburgh could ensure their 16-year wait for European group stage football is about to end.

Last weekend, ten-man Hearts came from 2-0 down to draw at St Mirren Park, with Josh Ginnelly halving the deficit before Lawrence Shankland converted a 96th minute spot-kick.

Nevertheless, this means the Jambos have won just one of their last eight, losing six of these, form that saw Robbie Neilson sacked last month.

So far this season, this fixture has very much favoured the home side, with Hearts losing both visits to Pittodrie, 2-0 and 3-0, while their clash in Gorgie in mid-January saw Aberdeen smashed 5-0.

Steven Naismith will very much be hoping this trend continues at Tynecastle.
