Hibernian host Glasgow giants Rangers in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday lunchtime.

Hibs have endured a decidedly mixed start to the new campaign, following up an opening day victory with a 95th-minute equaliser in the Edinburgh derby, Lee Johnson's side lost away to Livingston last weekend.

Rangers experienced their own range of emotions in the space of 90 exhilarating minutes against PSV Eindhoven in midweek. The Gers drew 2-2 at Ibrox in the first leg of their final Champions League qualifier after falling behind and taking the lead.

Here's everything you need to know about the meeting between this up and down duo.

Hibernian team news

The defensive duo of Demetri Mitchell and Lewis Stevenson are expected to remain sidelined with hamstring injuries until the end of the month. Veteran winger Aiden McGeady is still waiting to make his debut for the club after sustaining a ligament problem in preseason.

Rangers team news

While long-term absentee Ianis Hagi remains months away from his return, Kemar Roofe and Filip Helander aren't thought to be available this weekend.

Given their European aspirations and domestic obligations, Giovanni van Bronckhorst has already started 18 different players in the Premiership, comfortably the most among top flight teams just three games into the season.

Hibernian vs Rangers score prediction

According to Van Bronckhorst, Rangers "gave everything" against PSV. While there may be some sore limbs in the side, the Gers have rarely allowed their European exploits to impinge upon their league form.

Amid their continental sojourn last season, Rangers lost just one of the 16 Premiership matches which followed a European tie (W11 D4). With a perfect domestic record thus far, Rangers should again avoid a slip-up this weekend.

Prediction: Hibernian 0-2 Rangers
