In the battle of the fourth vs the second, Hibernian will host Aberdeen at Easter Road on Saturday.
Hibs registered an impressive 2-1 win at third-placed Rangers in their last league game, and they will be looking to cause another upset this Saturday. They come into this game following a two-week break as they were not involved in the cup last weekend.
The hosts, who have lost only once in their last seven league games, sit in the fourth spot with 44 points. Hibs have done incredibly well under Neil Lennon this season, and besides the top-three, they have been best of rest of the bunch throughout the season.
Ironically, Hibs’ last two defeats in the league have come against Aberdeen and Celtic respectively.
The Dons are currently on a three-game winning run in the league. They have taken back the second spot from Rangers in last few games, and with 52 points, they have a three-point lead over the Glasgow side.
Last weekend, they registered a 4-2 win over Dundee Utd in the fifth round of Scottish Cup.
Both sides have played each other twice this season, and both games have ended in favour of the Dons. The Dons claimed a 1-0 win at Easter Road earlier, and they were quite comfortable in a 4-1 win at home.
