Bottom-of-the-table Dundee will host Hibernian at Dens Park on Sunday afternoon. The hosts are yet to pick up a point this season and with a goal difference of -5, they are rooted in the last spot in the table. The Dee, who finished in the tenth spot last season, started this season with a 1-2 home defeat to Ross County. Following that, they have lost to Aberdeen and Hamilton on the road. Going into the game on Sunday, confidence is not high at Dundee and they will be second favourites to get a win in front of their supporters.
Hibs are doing much better than their opponents following their promotion in the summer. The visitors have six points from their opening three games and are currently placed fifth on the table. Hibs started the season with back-to-back wins over Patrick Thistle and Rangers but lost at home to Hamilton last weekend. They would still back themselves to return to the winning ways on Sunday.
These sides haven’t faced each other in a league game since the 2012-13 SPL season. Out of four meetings that season, Hibernian won two, Dundee won one and one game ended in a draw.
