Hibs News and Form
It is not even the start of the new season yet and Hibs have been thrust into some early summer action. It’s always tricky to know what to get out of games like this, but Hibs have home advantage and even though they are not going to be match sharp and match, they should have too much in the tank for their opponents. Hibernian to win to nil is at 8/11 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from July 11th, 2018 at 00:46 a.m.) for the fixture. Hibs will be playing John McGinn in this one despite interest from Celtic for the influential midfielder. Two years ago Hibs last saw European action when they were knocked out in a penalty shootout to Brondby.
The last time that Hibernian actually won a European tie was all the way back in 2006. They are going as firm favourites for this one and have had a few friendly warm-up matches under their belt, having beaten Linlithgow Rose and Berwick Rangers. But they couldn’t handle the step up as they lost to English side Blackburn. It wasn’t particularly good stuff from Neil Lennon’s men but are looking at the Hibernian 2-0 correct score option at 5/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from July 11th, 2018 at 00:46 a.m.). Hibs are currently ranked 267th with UEFA. Their opponents are down in 434th.
