History of the Aberdeen v Hibernian fixture

Hibernian face a trip to Aberdeen at Pittodrie Stadium on Sunday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The The Hibees will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in April 2007, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2 - 2 draw in a Scottish Premier match.
