Following a blip in form, Aberdeen have claimed three consecutive wins in the Premiership. Can they continue their winning run when they travel to Edinburgh on Saturday to face Hearts at Tynecastle?
The Dons claimed the second spot back from Rangers with a 2-0 win at Motherwell on Tuesday. Ahead of the upcoming round of games, Aberdeen sit in the second spot with 72 points. With six games left in the season, the Dons have a three-point lead on Rangers, and from here, a failure to finish in the top two would be considered a disappointment.
However, we can see Aberdeen dropping points against Hearts, who have been solid at home this season. The Jambos drew 1-1 at Dundee last weekend to cement their place in the top half of the table.
Hearts have claimed just one win in their last seven games, but that has been down to their terrible away form. They are undefeated in last 13 home games in all competitions, and this run includes a 4-0 win over Celtic. The hosts also boast of one of the best defences in the league, and they have conceded just nine goals in their 15 home games.
Hearts and Aberdeen have played each other twice in the league game this season, and each game ended in a goalless draw.
