Hibernian v Aberdeen Scottish Premiership Preview, 19th May 3.00pm
Aberdeen will look to better whatever it is that Kilmarnock manage against Rangers on the final day of the season to get themselves a third-place finish. That rewards with a place in the Europa League first qualifying round. If they finish fourth, they would need Celtic to win the FA Cup for that European place. Hibs will take a fifth-place finish regardless of the result here. Read our Hibernian v Aberdeen betting tips for more.

Hibernian News and Form
Hibs have lost their last two league outings by a 1-0 scoreline. Those reverses were against Rangers and Kilmarnock and it leaves them winless in four (D2 L2). Their only win in their last six league games was a 2-1 success at Hearts in early April. Their overall home form at Easter Road this season reads W6 D9 L3 and they are unbeaten in their last six there. The Hibees though have only drawn four of their last five there (W1).
So their winning touch has deserted them a bit. Five of their six home wins this season have been by a margin of at least two goals. They have averaged 1.5 goals per home game, while their defence has been great. Hibernian have conceded at an average of 0.8 goals per home game. Just 33% of their league games at Easter Road have made it over 2.5 goals. Both teams have scored in less than half of league games there this season.
