Hibernian’s Season So Far

Hibernian’s season started in the Europa League qualifiers in July and in their first match defeated NSI Runavik 6-1 at Easter Road before a wee scare in the Faroe Islands before a 6-4 win.

A 4-3 aggregate victory over Greek side Asteras set up a tie with Molde but after a 0-0 draw in Edinburgh, Hibs were knocked out after a 3-0 defeat in Norway.

In the Premiership Hibs opened their campaign with a 3-0 win over Motherwell and followed that up with draws against St Johnstone and Aberdeen before a surprise defeat away at newly promoted Livingston.

In the Betfred Cup Hibs have reached the quarter-finals after an exciting 3-2 win over Ross County but exited the competition on penalties after a 0-0 draw with Aberdeen at Easter Road.

Hibs then went a four game winning run against Kilmarnock, Dundee, St Mirren and Hamilton before losing 4-2 in an exhilarating match at Celtic Park.

The first Edinburgh derby of the season was a controversial one but ended 0-0 and it was followed by two 1-0 defeats to St Johnstone and Aberdeen meaning Dundee travel to the Capital with the Hibees on a four game winless run.
