Match preview

This will be the 331th staging of the Edinburgh Derby and, ever since their first encounter in 1875, these two capital clubs have never really got along.

Right now, Heart of Midlothian are the city’s top club, so will that trend continue this season?

The Jambos are currently unbeaten in six derbies, finishing 16 points above their rivals last season and beating them in a Scottish Cup semi-final.

Having finished third last time round, Robbie Neilson’s side are guaranteed eight European games in the next four months.

The first two of those will be in the Europa League play-off round; their opponents will be Linfield or Zürich.

On the domestic front, Hearts began this Premiership season by beating Ross County 2-1 last weekend.

Alan Forrest rounding off a fantastic team move on debut, before a magnificent solo effort from Barrie McKay secured the win.

So, everything is going right for Hearts just now, hoping this momentum will carry them to an away derby victory.

In stark contrast, Hibernian are not involved in UEFA competition having slumped to an eighth place finish last season.

Then, under new manager Lee Johnson, they began the new campaign by being knocked out the League Cup in the group stages by Falkirk and Morton.

Thus, last weekend’s admittedly fortunate 1-0 victory over St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park was much needed.

Josh Campbell heading home the stoppage time winner that appeared to deflect in off Rocky Bushiri’s arm.

So, everything points towards an away win at Easter Road but, in a derby, you just never know.
