Dundee Utd vs Hibernian Prediction & Betting tips
Two games, two wins – the 2020/21 season couldn’t have started better for Hibernian FC. On the third day of the Scottish Premiership, the green-whites will meet the promoted team from Dundee. So far, Dundee United have not lost their first two games of the season. Most recently, an important away win at Motherwell was recorded.
On Tuesday evening, the best bookmakers see Dundee United against Hibernian as a slight underdog according to odds. In the Tannadice Park of the Tangerines, however, we would not share this assessment and see value in the quotes for a home win by Dundee United.
Last season, Dundee United suffered only one defeat at their home ground. It is quite possible that this will be followed up in the Scottish House of Lords. At the first home game of the new season, the Tangerines had an unfortunate draw against FC St. Johnstone. Despite the majority, Dundee United could no longer crack the defensive bulwark of the opponent.
On Tuesday evening, we tend to assume an eventful match in which there should be no lack of goal area scenes. During the match between Dundee United vs. Hibernian we think a prognosis for a duel with many goals is quite obvious.
Since the 2015/16 season, Dundee United was no longer represented in the Scottish House of Lords. After three unsuccessful attempts, the Tangerines fixed their promotion in the last season and reported back to the Premiership with a solid start to the season. Dundee United remained undefeated on the first two match days of the 2020/21 season.
Last season Dundee United was the strongest home team in the Scottish Championship. In 14 home games there were ten wins, three draws and only one defeat for the Tangerines. Dundee United wants to build on the strong home record at Tannadice Park in the Scottish House of Lords. In the first home game of the new season there was a 1-1 draw against FC St. Johnstone.
On the previous day, Dundee United was able to at least win the away game at Motherwell and score three important points. In the absence of star striker Lawrence Shankland, the offensive is currently extremely difficult. It was therefore hardly surprising that only one goal could be scored against the decimated St. Johnstone at the season opener.
Last season, Shankland scored 24 goals in 26 appearances. The 25-year-old Scot will probably only be able to play again on the fourth day of the Premiership. Until then, coach Micky Mellon will have to bridge the striker problem with Appéré. It therefore remains to be seen what performance the Tangerines’ attack department will expect.
On Tuesday evening, no major changes are to be expected in the starting line-up of the Mellon-Elf. If Dundee United prevails against Hibernian, attractive odds for tip 1 await.
Hibernian is aiming for the third win in the third game. So far, the Hibs have had a sensational start to the season with their home win over Kilmarnock and the away win at Livingston. Above all, the offensive of the green-whites made a strong impression. A total of six goals were scored in the first two games of the season.
Five of Hibernian’s six goals to date have been scored in the first half. Jack Ross is unlikely to change his team’s offensive style of play. Compared to the Tangerines’ squad, the Hibs are definitely more staffed. As on the first two match days, Ross is still spared from personnel restrictions.
Accordingly, the Hibs will face Dundee United with the best line-up. After the strong performances against Livingston (4: 1) and Kilmarnock (2: 1), no changes in the starting XI are expected on Tuesday evening. If the latest offensive trend among the green-whites continues, Dundee United vs. Hibernian a tip on a goal for the Hibs in the first half is highly recommended.
Last season abroad there was a record of 4-3-8. Although the recent performance at Livingston was laudable, it remains to be seen whether the away weakness can be overcome this season.
