Rangers will welcome Hibernian to Ibrox Stadium for a matchday 8 fixture in Scotland Premiership. The last meeting on 11th April 2021 ended in a Rangers 2-1 win. Both sides have met twenty-five times in the most recent seasons. Rangers has won 13 matches, and Hibernian triumphed in 7. Recent outings average 3.44 goals, while both teams score 64% of the time.
Rangers’s latest fixture against Dundee ended in an away 1-0 win. Rangers was very dangerous in attack, having attempted four shots on target. Rangers set the tone early and scored in the 16 minute.
Hibernian’s recent game against St. Johnstone ended in a home 1-0 win. Hibernian dominated the game and deserved the win. Hibernian deserved to score in the second half and did so in the 61st minute.
Since the start of the season, Rangers is more dominant at home. They have two wins out of 3 games on home soil. Rangers has one of the best defence in the league. They have kept a clean sheet in 67% of their home games.
Hibernian has picked up 12 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Hibernian wins 1.67 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Hibernian kept a clean sheet in just 33% of their visits.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Rangers is yet to lose at home, being undefeated in three games.
Hibernian failed to win in two consecutive away games. It will be a big surprise to turn up on Sunday and win against Rangers.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Rangers wins on average 2.33 points per home game, compared to 1.67 points per away game for Hibernian. My prediction is Rangers to win.
Lately, there are not that many high-scoring games for both sides. I am confident that the tendency will keep going and at least one team will keep a clean sheet. A bet that both sides will score wins in an average of 50% of Rangers’s home and Hibernian’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
