Hearts betting tips

Match preview

Heart of Midlothian enter this season’s League Cup at this stage, so are aiming to avoid falling at the first hurdle.

On Sunday, Hearts won a five-goal thriller, beating St Johnstone 3-2; Kye Rowles and Liam Boyce scoring, before Lawrence Shankland converted a late penalty.

This means Robbie Neilson’s side have won three of five Premiership games so far, only losing to champions Celtic.

Also, the Jambos have the Europa Conference League group stages to look forward to.

They’ll take on İstanbul Başakşehir, Fiorentina and RFS in Group A, commencing at home to the Turkish club next Thursday.

Before then, will Hearts stay on track to win the League Cup for the first time since 1963?

Kilmarnock meanwhile only got through to round two as one of the best-ranked group runners-up, ending up second behind Patrick Thistle in that section.

Derek McInnes’ side came from behind to beat Motherwell 2-1 on Saturday, thanks to quick-fire goals from Daniel Armstrong and Ash Taylor.

This was a vital victory for Killie, as it’s actually their first since being promoted back to the top-flight.

Here, Hearts should be too strong at Tynecastle.
