History of the Aberdeen v Hibernian fixture

Aberdeen prepare to entertain Hibernian at Pittodrie Stadium at lunchtime on Saturday, looking to continue an impressive record. The Dons are clearly on top, winning 51.13% of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Pittodrie Stadium was less than a year ago, in December 2009, as the visitors ran out cosy 0-2 winners in a Scottish Premier match.
