Hearts vs Dundee United Match Preview

Scotland’s 2019-20 season begins with a League Cup opener between two clubs who have met surprisingly rarely in the cup competitions over the last couple of decades – only once since 1997.

Dundee United were hoping to join Hearts back in the top flight for the new campaign, but they missed out on a place in the Premiership at the end of May when they lost a penalty shootout to St Mirren who stayed up instead.

That means a fourth consecutive season of Championship football for the Terrors, although at least they have been installed as favourites to gain automatic promotion this time around.

Firstly, however, they must focus on the League Cup for the first few weeks of the campaign and these two clubs are favourites for a possible two places from Group A in the knockout phase, with the other teams in this pool being East Fife, Stenhousemuir and Cowdenbeath.

Hearts’ latest match was a 2-1 defeat to Celtic in the Scottish Cup Final after taking the lead and that made it eight defeats in their last 11 games of the season for Craig Levein’s side.

United ended the campaign in much better form, albeit at a division lower, and having signed the Championship’s top scorer of last season, Lawrence Shankland from Ayr United, on a free transfer, Robbie Neilson’s men are fancied to avoid defeat at the very least against their manager’s former club.
