Our Prediction:

Hibernian will win

Hibernian – St Johnstone Match Prediction | 21-08-2019

St Johnstone have, on the other hand, struggled with a tough schedule as they dropped out of the Championship Group with just one point in six league outings and saw an FA Cup exit to Celtic (5-0) along the way. Failing to find the net at all in two home clashes (0-2 losses to both Celtic and Aberdeen) could be even more worrying, though.

Hibs continued to apply pressure, ultimately going in front once again and seemingly sealing their win, but Steven Whittakers stoppage-time own goal meant that the sides were going to play an extra 30 minutes of football. Morton held on well before Florian Kamberi scored his 2nd to put Hibs 4-3 up, before Christian Doidge scored the 5th and final goal of the afternoon, sending the Hibees through to the next round of the League Cup.

St. Johnstone vs Hibernian Prediction & Match Preview

Moreover, theyve lost of those 5 games, including an embarrassing 7-0 humping by Celtic on the opening day of the season. St Johnstone will come into this game having won a single game in their last 7 outings, which was a much-needed 4-0 victory over Brechin City, although the Saints still couldnt make it through to the last-16 of the competition.

Livingston went 2-0 thanks to goals from Scott Pittman and Steven Lawless in the first-half, but Tommy Wrights side came out fighting in the latter 45 minutes as they were able to pull one back just 10 minutes into the second-half thanks to Matty Kennedy, with Callum Hendry bringing things level with 8 minutes remaining, although the sides would eventually see out the draw.

The visitors were in a much better touch of late. However, the head to head tradition and the look at the standings suggest the draw as the most likable of three outcomes. The 1-1 score was by far the most common of results in recent H2H games and we would not be surprised to see it coming once again here.

St Johnstone will come into this game having won a single game in their last 7 outings, which was a much-needed 4-0 victory over Brechin City, although the Saints still couldnt make it through to the last-16 of the competition. Moreover, theyve lost of those 5 games, including an embarrassing 7-0 humping by Celtic on the opening day of the season.

Hibs also suffered a heavy defeat to Rangers, although that was more of a freak accident and lack of concentration rather than a deserved defeat. The sides have seen a lot of goals in their last couple of games- 15 in Hibs last 2 and 14 in St Johnstones last 3- which is why were going to back the Hibees to win & over 3.5 goals for this game and a final outcome of 3-1, as we also feel that St Johnstone dont yet have what it takes to beat out one of the top 6 sides.
