Boosted by a midweek win in Riga, Hearts return to domestic Premierdship duties with a trip to Fir Park to take on Motherwell.

Having endured a miserable run of form which had seen them lose 6 of their previous 7 matches, Hearts made a winning return to form with a deserved win on the road in the Europa Conference League on Thursday.

Motherwell, already dumped out of European competition by Sligo Rovers earlier this summer, have been in reasonable form in the Premiership, winning 3 and drawing 1 of their last 6 league matches.

Motherwell vs Hearts Betting Tips - BTTS

While Hearts will certainly enjoy a lift from their European victory, the Jambos are likely to suffer from fatigue following a long trip home. With little experience of the Thursday-Sunday-Thursday schedule of clubs competing in the Europa and Conference Leagues, it remains to be seen if the visitors have enough energy to emerge from Lanarkshire with a positive result.

Of course, Motherwell are hardly the most consistent of sides and, with only 3 wins in their last 11 home league matches, remains an unappealing selection for this fixture. Motherwell do have a good record in this fixture, though, having won 6 of the last 8 meetings between these sides, including each of the last 3 at this venue.

Still, the goal markets probably ook to hold the most appeal here, with Motherwell seeing BTTS in 5 of their last 7 home Premiership fixtures. Hearts have also seen BTTS fairly regularly, including 7 of their last 9 league matches and in 6 of their last 8 on the road also seeing that outcome.

Given all that, Motherwell could take advantage of Hearts' likely fatigue, but we still expect both teams to score in what should prove a lively encounter at Fir Park.

Head Coach Steven Hammell is unlikely to make many changes to his starting XI with the hosts in good form in recent weeks. 

In form forward, Kevin Van Veen will lead the attack with support coming from Joseph Efford and Blair Spittal.
