Hibernian vs. Aberdeen Betting Tips
Aberdeen travel to Glasgow for their Scottish Cup semi-finals clash against Hibernian on Saturday, hoping to build on their 1-2 win over St. Johnstone and earn their spot in the final over the Scottish Championship rivals, which we’ll back at 20/21 with Ladbrokes
The Dons have been very consistent recently and earned six wins in their last seven outings, with just one loss (0-3 to Rangers) in the process. However, they’ve now returned to the winning ways and it does seem they’ll come into the match as confident as ever so it’s tough to expect recently unpredictable Hibs can deny them a ticket to the Final.
Hibernian still top the Championship table 11 points clear of the 2nd placed Falkirk, but they’ve earned just two wins in their last six outings. We’ve seen them held to draws by Dumbarton (2-2), Dunfermline (1-1), and Greenock Morton twice (0-0 in March and 1-1 in April) in the process. Although their 3-0 win over Queen of the South in their last outing has been an impressive display, it’s questionable whether their inconsistency will now have a high price to be paid.
They have had troubles continuously scoring numbers of goals and this will be a major worry for Neil Lennon ahead of the clash, as Aberdeen have focused on their keeping their net intact – a task they’ve done in five of their last seven outings. With high stakes involved, we expect careful build ups from behind and a low-scoring contest, backing Under 2.5 goals FT at Evens with William Hill
