Motherwell Prediction

Motherwell sit in 9th place and just one league position below Hibernian but find themselves nine points adrift of their visitors as the hosts have suffered a recent three-match losing streak which has resulted in Motherwell being cast adrift of the teams above them.

Recent losses to Celtic 3-0 along with 1-0 defeats at home to St Mirren and Kilmarnock respectively had threatened to become something more sinister as ‘Well just couldn’t seem to get a win from anywhere, but they bucked the trend last time out with a much needed win at Premiership strugglers, Hamilton Academical with a 2-1 victory.

Motherwell now return to Fir Park where they hold a home record of 2-3-5 9/10 which includes two recent defeats but they had previously put together a three match sequence without defeat, which included wins over Dundee and Aberdeen and have held both Celtic and Rangers to draws on home turf too this season.


Key-Facts – Motherwell v Hibernian

  • Motherwell have held Celtic and Rangers to draws at Fir Park this season
  • Hibernian are without a win from their last 4 matches in the Premiership
  • Hibernian have won just 1 of their last 6 away matches


Hibernian Prediction

Hibernian sit in 8th place on the Scottish Premiership league ladder but they head into this encounter with Motherwell on the back of a four match sequence without a win; three draws against Rangers (away and home) as well as Livingston, along with an Edinburgh derby defeat to Hearts has resulted in Hibs losing ground on the top six teams in the division.

League wins have been hard to come by for the visitors as Hibs have managed just two victories from their last 13 matches overall, so confidence is likely to be fragile at best for the visitors who need all three points here to stay in the hunt for a Championship Round berth.

Hibernian have also managed just one win from their last six on their travels which was a 1-0 win at strugglers Hamilton Academical, but their away record has now dipped to 3-3-4 10/12 following this rather barren spell on the road.

Betting Tips Verdict

With home advantage at Fir Park, Motherwell stand a decent chance of getting at least point here against a Hibernian outfit who have struggled of late.
