Livingston Prediction

Livingston occupy 9th place in the Scottish Premiership and trail Hibernian by seven points ahead of this important Friday night clash as the hosts look to stage a late claim for a top six finish and a place in the Championship Round.

The hosts currently find themselves in the Relegation Round pack but all three points at home in this encounter would be a most welcome boost for Livingston as they look to build upon a couple of encouraging results in recent times; a 3-1 home win over 7th placed St Johnstone and a very useful point as they held 3rd placed Aberdeen to a 1-1 draw at Pittodrie last time out.

Following three defeats on the trot to Aberdeen, Rangers and Dundee, Livingston have since bounced back with back-to-back victories over Kilmarnock and St Johnstone, and with a fairly reasonable looking home record that stands at 9-2-4 24/11, the hosts will be confident that they can get something from this clash.

In addition, Livingston have kept eight clean sheets in their 15 home matches to date and recorded a 2-1 win over Hibernian the last time these two teams clashed at the Tony Macaroni Arena.

 

Key-Facts – Livingston v Hibernian

  • Livingston have kept 8 clean sheets out of their 15 home matches so far
  • Livingston recorded a 2-1 win over Hibernian in their last clash at home
  • Hibernian have kept just 4 clean sheets away from home all season

 

Hibernian Prediction

Hibernian have held onto the last remaining Championship Round spot and 6th place in the Scottish Premiership thanks to a decent run of form which has seen Hibs win four of their last five matches overall with wins against Hamilton Academicals, Dundee, St Johnstone and Motherwell.

During this recent five-match period, the visitors also held Rangers to a 1-1 draw at their Easter Road ground, but they face a tricky away trip to Livingston this Friday night, particularly as they’ve produced inconsistent results away from home all season to date.

An away record of 6-3-6 19/19 underlines their inconsistencies on the road this term and although they’ve posted wins at St Mirren, Dundee and St Johnstone since the turn of the year, they’ve also suffered defeats at Motherwell and Celtic as well.

With just four clean sheets to their name on their travels so far in this campaign, Hibernian are certainly not assured of all three points here and may face a sticky time of it at Livingston on Friday night.

Betting Tips Verdict

Livingston’s sturdy defence gives them a chance of at least a point here against an inconsistent Hibs side.
