The penultimate weekend in the SPL takes place this weekend, with important battles for European places still taking place. Hibernian will be the hosts this weekend, as they chase a huge victory that could move them into the Europa League spots.
It looks set to be an important final seven days of the season for Hibernian, as they could yet end the season in the Europa League spots. They come into this fixture sitting fifth in the standings, but they are just one adrift of fourth-placed Hearts. But, they will need to rediscover their peak form if they are to end the season in fourth, as they have landed just one victory over their previous five matches.
They missed a glorious opportunity to move into the top four last weekend, as they could only draw 0-0 away from home against Aberdeen. Hibs dominated the match last weekend, as they had the lion-share of possession, and managed to record five shots on target. But, they were made to pay for being wasteful in the final third of the field.
Rangers will already need to watch on as their Old Firm rivals celebrate winning the SPL title this term, as they can only finish second in the league standings. The Gers have been made to pay for crucial defeats, and they look set to end the campaign ten points behind Celtic in the standings.
However, they inflicted a layer of revenge in their previous match in the league, as they recorded their best performance of the season to claim a 3-0 win in the final Old Firm Derby of the season. Todd Cantwell and John Souttar scored first half goals in that success, before the gloss was put on the win by Fashion Sakala with 20 minutes remaining.
Hibernian vs Rangers Head to Head
Rangers has a strong record in this fixture, as they have landed victories in each of the previous two, and seven of the last eight against Hibs. Meanwhile, the hosts haven’t recorded a victory over Rangers since a 2-1 away success back in August 2017.
Hibernian vs Rangers Prediction
Hibs still need points in their battle for a European spot, and they will be keen to land maximum points this weekend. However, we struggle to see past a confident Rangers outfit on Sunday, as they chase a third straight win in the league.
