Hibernian vs Aberdeen Match Preview
Aberdeen will be targeting a victory away to Hibernian which they hope proves good enough to secure a Europa League qualifying berth for a sixth straight season.
Third place in the Scottish Premiership provides a ticket into Europe and that is the aim for Aberdeen, who go into this final round of matches level on points with Kilmarnock, their rivals for that position, but with a goal difference worse by six.
Therefore, the Dons need to win at Easter Road and hope Killie drop points at home to Rangers, who are the only Scottish club currently guaranteed to be representing the country in next term’s Europa League.
The team in fourth place may well end up qualifying too, but only if Hearts lose the Scottish Cup Final to Celtic and although that is highly probable according to the bookmakers’ odds, it cannot be taken for granted.
Hibernian have lost their last two games narrowly away to Rangers and Kilmarnock, but it has still been a more than satisfactory start for their manager Paul Heckingbottom since his appointment in February, especially as he still has an unbeaten home record in the league.
However, we are backing that to disappear this weekend with Aberdeen having a more tangible incentive to win due to their battle for the ‘bronze medal’ with Killie.
