Hearts Prediction

Hearts occupy 5th place on the Scottish top flight ladder and hold a commanding 12 point lead over tonight’s visitors, Livingston as the hosts look to take all three points here in order to attempt to draw level on points with 4th placed Kilmarnock.

With a 10 point cushion over their local Edinburgh rivals and 7th placed Hibernian, the hosts look well set for a top six finish and progression into the Championship Round which holds the potential for European football next season.

Hearts head into this encounter on the back of a promising run of victories which have seen The Jambos pick up four wins from their last five matches with wins against Hamilton, Hibernian, St Johnstone and away at Kilmarnock – their one aberration was a surprise 2-1 defeat at home to second from bottom club Dundee.

A home record of 7-2-3 16/8 includes six clean sheets while leading goalscorer Naismith (9 goals) leads the way up front for the hosts.


Key-Facts – Hearts v Livingston

  • Hearts have won 4 of their last 5 matches in the Premiership
  • Hearts have kept 6 clean sheets at home so far this season
  • Livingston have lost 6 of their last 8 away from home


Livingston Prediction

Livingston have dropped down the Premiership table to 8th place after losing their last four league matches on the bounce with defeats to Aberdeen, St Johnstone, Rangers and Motherwell which have seen the visitors concede a total of 9 goals and score just 1 in reply during this miserable sequence of results.

In actual fact, Livingston are without a top flight win for six matches and with a poor away record of 1-4-7 7/18 which includes six defeats from their last eight matches on the road, they look to have their work cut out to get even a point at Tynecastle on Wednesday night.

Livingston have found scoring goals hard to come by on their travels this term which is underlined by the fact that the visitors have failed to score in 7 of their 12 away matches this season, and only third from bottom club, Hamilton Academical (5 goals) have scored fewer away goals than Livingston in the Premiership.

Betting Tips Verdict

All roads therefore point towards all three points for hosts Hearts here at reasonably good odds.
