Description: DUN Vs HIB Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: League leaders Hibernian look to maintain their early lead atop of the points tally.
Hitting Livingston for four in the foregone affair, Hibernian ended up torching their way to 1st place in league standings of Scottish Premiership 2019-20. While it’s a position the side will find extremely difficult to hang onto as the league runs down its course, it’s a spot the club will be looking to indulge its rapturous supporters in as long as it can.
The club has gone onto register wins in both of its opening matches in the newest edition of the league. While the results have been overwhelming results, performances which has heralded in unbranded joy for the side, the fact that these displays come after a torrid bygone season make the results all the more alluring.
Also, these wins could potentially go a long way in the season, wins which assert the side never find themselves engaged in the relegation tiff further on the season. The side will be looking to met out a spitting image of its bygone pulsating win and make it three wins in a row when they go locking heads with Dundee United today.
DUN Vs HIB Dream11 Probable Winner
Only newly promoted, Dundee United have taken little time to settle into their groove in the upper tier of football in Scotland. The side is unbeaten after two fixtures with the team registering its first win of the league after a scrappy 1-0 affair the last time around.
Although they managed to accrue three points from that contest, the unconvincing manner in which that win came about doesn’t bode well for the side ahead of this one. Up against a Hibernian side which has come hot out of the blocks, Dundee United should finally end up tasting their first defeat this season.

Dream 11 Picks
Had Benjamin Siegrist not decided to show fight and character the last time around, Dundee Untied would have had no chance of a win. In a wonderful show of acumen filled shot stopping, the player acted as a true custodian of his side’s goal as he perplexed the opposition after stringing up save after save across the 90 minutes.
Although Dundee United have fared off extremely well in their life in the Scottish premiership 2020-21, the one area where the side has been clearly been wanting is the defensive ambit. The club is yet to adjust itself to defences in the league with the team’s laggard attack not inspiring the most confidence.
And with Hibernian have kept the one cleansheet and shipped in a frugal one goal in two encounters, the visiting side can easily accrue another shut down. It sees us indulge in the pick of a trivalent from the club with all of Josh Doig, Paul Hanlon and Paul McGinn being our picks for the imminent outing.
Not only was Luke Bolton critical in helping his side come out of the last scrimmage unscathed, but he ended up providing an assist for the side’s only goal of the tie to make him a must have pick from Dundee United.
With two assists to his name in the league, Daryl Horgan was been crucial to Hibernian slotting their way into top spot in the competition. Dundee United will see the partnership of Peter Pawlett and Calum Butcher be our pick for the forthcoming contest, two players whose unnerving commitment to snagging tackles and blocks makes them a crucial part of the side’s gameplan.
Kevin Nisbet has utilised his insatiable appetite for goals to fill his shoes inside the first two gaols itself. He has already scored on three occasions to make the player a must have pick for the forthcoming outing.
Martin Boyle at the other hand has helped himself to two goals with him and Nisbet moving in tandem to scour first place for the club. Christian Doidge completes our set of picks from the side with the player having managed to have popped in with the one goal as well.
Captain And Vice-Captain
He’s played a hand in four goals in two matches to make it only rightful to opt for Kevin as our captain while Boyle is the vice-captain.
