Aberdeen vs Livingston
Date: Saturday, 16 March 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Pittodrie Stadium (Aberdeen).
Livingston can still theoretically break into the top-six and make it to the Championship round in post season in remaining four rounds of the regulation. They are five points shy of 6th-placed Hibernian and have a direct match against them scheduled in two weeks after the international break.
However, it is really hard to believe the visitors the Lions can make such accomplishment in reality. They first need a win on Saturday afternoon against 3rd-placd Aberdeen and it will be a very tough task if we know the hosts enjoyed a super strong form in the last couple of weeks.
The team led by Derek McInnes managed to stay unbeaten in these ties conceding just one goal in the process. They advanced into the FA Cup semi-final beating Rangers 0-2 away at Ibrox in the quarter-final replay on Tuesday evening.
Aberdeen vs Livingston: Head-to-head
Aberdeen were the dominant force in the most recent head to head history against the Lions.
The Dons won four on the bounce against Livingston netting at least two goals in each of fixtures in the process.
Aberdeen won 7, drew 2 and lost 3 of 12 home fixtures against the Lions.
Aberdeen vs Livingston: Prediction
Livingston did pick up a couple of wins in front of the home crowd recently, but they struggled badly to match such performances on the road. The Lions actually own one of league’s weakest away records with 1 win, 5 draws and 8 defeats in 14 league outings away from Tony Macaroni Arena.
Gary Holt’s troops only found the back of the net on seven occasions in 14 away matches this season. Knowing how tough Aberdeen were to break down lately against two deadliest attacking line-ups in the entire league, we can hardly imagine the visitors on the scoresheet on Saturday afternoon at Pittodrie Stadium.
The home win to nil is the way to go.
