  1. YELLOW CARD

    Hibernian 0-0 Aberdeen

    Florian Kamberi fires well over the bar but referee Steven McLean brings play back for a free-kick for Michael Devlin’s challenge on Emerson Hyndman. Devlin gets booked but Hibs cannot make anything out of the set piece.

  2. GREAT SAVE!

    Hibernian 0-0 Aberdeen

    Now Hibs threaten and Emerson Hyndman tests Joe Lewis with a shot.

  4. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Hibernian 0-0 Aberdeen

    Aberdeen win a free-kick in a dangerous area and Dominic Ball’s effort cannons off the crossbar and bounces down in the six-yard box. Hibs get it clear and they will feel that’s a real let off.

  5. Fascinating contest

    Hibernian 0-0 Aberdeen

    Brian McLauchlin

    BBC Sport Scotland at Easter Road

    This already looks to be a fascinating contest with
    both teams passing up decent opportunities in the opening quarter of the game.

    There is no doubt Derek McInnes has pinpointed Martin
    Boyle as the serious threat in the home team with both Max Lowe and Andy Considine ensuring there is little room for the Hibernian winger to show his
    electric pace.

    There also have been a few ‘meaty’ challenges coming in
    from Sam Cosgrove on both Paul Hanlon and Stevie Mallan that referee Steven
    McLean has witnessed and no doubt taken note of.

  6. Post update

    Hibernian 0-0 Aberdeen

    Stevie Mallan’s free-kick is too high and dips over the Aberdeen crossbar.

  7. ‘Both teams carry a threat’

    Hibernian 0-0 Aberdeen

    Emerson Hyndman gets into an advanced position for Hibernian but the challenge of Michael Devlin puts the midfielder off and his shot goes wide.

  12. Post update

    Hibernian 0-0 Aberdeen

    Referee Steven McLean has a word with Hibs’ Florian Kamberi and Aberdeen’s Scott McKenna after the pair tussle off the ball but no cards.

  13. Post update

    Hibernian 0-0 Aberdeen

    An open game so far but both sides are struggling to retain possession. A few misplaced passes here and there are preventing any real flow to the play.

  15. CLOSE!

    Hibernian 0-0 Aberdeen

    Aberdeen were bossing things but Hibernian mount a piercing counter attack with Florian Kamberi played in by Emerson Hyndman.

    Kamberi manages to get away from the Aberdeen defence and goalkeeper Joe Lewis but, on the turn, the striker knocks the ball wide.

  16. National interest

    Hibernian 0-0 Aberdeen

    Scotland manager Alex McLeish is among the spectators this evening.

    McLeish is no stranger to these two clubs having played most of his career at Aberdeen and winning promotion as Hibs manager.

  17. Post update

    Hibernian 0-0 Aberdeen

    Gary Mackay-Steven has another set piece opportunity on the opposite side of the pitch, the right, but his delivery is far too high.

  18. GREAT SAVE!

    Hibernian 0-0 Aberdeen

    Hibs goalkeeper Adam Bogdan denies Andy Considine from close range following a free-kick from Gary Mackay-Steven.

    Hibs still have a bit of work to do and Mark Milligan makes a vital clearance.

    And it’s Hibs who kick off.
