Hearts Vs Hibs LIVE Updates

The Scottish Premiership continues on Saturday with the clash between Hearts and Hibs. With a seven-match unbeaten run‚ Hearts are looking for revenge after being hammered by Celtic in their last match. Hibs are also desperate for revenge after losing 1-0 to Hearts in the opening Edinburgh derby this season. Hearts are in the Europa League play-off spot and could win silverware in their next match‚ so the match is sure to be a must-watch for the entire footballing world.

Hearts face Hibs in a Scottish Premiership clash at Hampden Park

Robbie Neilson has reminded the Hearts fans to pull on maroon and white tomorrow as they look to make it two wins in a row against Hibs. The game has sold out its initial allocation of 20‚000 tickets and two additional batches have been released. Hibs supporters aren't buying tickets as enthusiastically as they have been for Hearts‚ but Neilson expects Hampden Park to be a sell-out. The teams met in the 2012 final. Hibs were on their way to finishing fourth in the SPL‚ while Hearts were on course to finish second. Hearts were missing Darren Barr‚ Kevin McKenna and Derek Riordan‚ while Gareth O'Connor had just signed a contract with Lokomotiv Moscow. Hearts were able to cope with the early Hibs pressure and work slowly into the game. In the 16th minute‚ they score the opening goal. This derby is famous for producing many memorable clashes over the years. The 2012 Scottish Cup final was won by Hearts in a 5-1 score. Both sides have produced goals‚ cards and talking points during previous games. This is one Scottish Premiership match that should have a great atmosphere and a thrilling finish. Make sure you don't miss it! And don't miss it - tickets are available now! Despite a 1-0 halftime lead‚ the game was not without its drama. Hibs started the game with more possession than Hearts‚ but managed to concede more goals. In the 37th minute‚ Halliday picked up an injury after a challenge from Scott. Hearts' attack continued after the restart. After the injury‚ Porteous headed a powerful downward header on the target‚ which Gordon was forced to tip onto the inside of the right post. In midfield‚ Craig Halkett will likely start for Hearts and could be replaced by Mihai Popescu. Hibs have been without a central striker since August‚ but James Scott could return to the starting line to replace him. The attacking midfield‚ however‚ could prove to be a major threat against Celtic. And it will help if the Hibs defence is vulnerable to a Hearts attack.

Hearts could lift silverware

Robbie Neilson has been talking up the possibility of lifting the Scottish Cup after his side beat Hibs in the semi-finals of the competition. Neilson‚ who was a player for Hearts in 2006‚ is now head coach at Tynecastle. Neilson has been working with the Hearts squad to prepare them for the Edinburgh derby. Here's why: The 1998 Scottish Cup triumph was the club's first senior trophy since the Scottish League Cup in 1962-63. Colin Cameron scored a first-minute penalty before Stephane Adam added the second in the second half. Hearts went on to finish third in the league in the following season‚ and reached the UEFA Cup group stages in 1988. The club's resurgence was boosted by the recent promotion to the Premier League. A Scottish Cup final is a huge honour for any club‚ but it is particularly prestigious for Hearts‚ who have twice lost to Celtic in the final. The competition has long traditions and high prestige. The players‚ coaches‚ and supporters are all in a tizzy if Hearts lift it. As a Scottish Premiership club‚ Hearts have made it a point to get to Hampden to fight Hibs‚ and will be eager to win it this season. Hearts were a strong side in the first half but lacked a certain spark in the second half. In the third‚ they were unable to get a grip and conceded a goal. They dominated possession in the first half but had limited opportunities to shoot from long range. Hibs have not lifted a cup since 1902. The two teams share similar histories. In the 1990s‚ Hearts and Hibs attempted to merge and become a single team. Mercer tried to name the combined club as Edinburgh United‚ but was unable to convince Hibs. Ultimately‚ he failed to achieve his goal and the clubs have continued to fight for promotion. In spite of this‚ they remain rivals and are likely to go head-to-head on Saturday.
