Hearts -St.Johnstone

First round of new season in Scotland higher league; could be a risk bet on an opening match, but Hearts seems – more or less – in same situation of Stabaek in Norway, that decided to play with young players.

The same happens here: in summer market hosts sold more then 15 player and made no acquisitions.

They are in the hands of many promising youngsters that should try to give to the team another year in Premier League

At least 14 of their players have less then 25 years, many are 21 years old or less and only two- three of them had some role as regulars in last season.

More, for this match Hearts has also two defenders unavailable, Hamill ( 28+1 2g) injuried since April, and banned Grainger ( 27). This further reduce the choices and the experience of the team- the sector in which the are more experienced players remain just the defence).

Also St. Johnstone suffered the departure of two keyplayers, Jody Morris (midf. 28+1) and topscorer Sandaza ( striker 29+1 14g), and trainer hopes that will not suffer an injury crisis during teh season, because the team has a very slim bench, but their team seems have a more competitive team and in this match will debut new striker Vine, for many years involved in English Championship,while there aren’t missings for this round.

Another thing that plays in favour of the guests is the fact that St. Johnstone already played two competitive matches in EL, where was put out from Turkish Eskisherispor with a loss in Turkey and a drawon his own field.

In my opinion guests can gain at least a draw here
