Hamilton Academical vs Livingston
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 28 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Hope CBD Stadium (Hamilton).
Both had finished next to each other in the league table last season, but there was a gulf of difference in the number of points accrued. While Livi had finished with 42 points in total after the completion of the first phase, their counterparts could manage just 25.
This time around, the difference in quality has been on full display, and the sole two losses that Livingston suffered had come against two top teams – Rangers, and Aberdeen.
As such, Hamilton will have to heavily lean on their home advantage this Saturday, to go through the day without incident.
Hamilton Academical vs Livingston Head-to-head (h2h)
- The previous six wins in a row went to the teams that had home advantage.

- It’s been seven years since the guests won at this venue.
- The former six encounters at this stadium returned four home wins, and two draws.
Hamilton Academical vs Livingston Prediction
The Accies are winless in their former five straight games and were so in four of their previous five home ties, and in 14 of their prior 19 as well. On the other hand, their visitors stood unbeaten in 11 of their last 13 overall match-ups, and in 12 of their former 15 on the road.
Taking current form into account, and the exceptional performances of the guests away from home, the reasonable expectation is for them to avoid a loss this weekend.
But, considering the home advantage, the superior h2h stats posted by Brian Rice’s men over the years, and especially at this venue, it would be hard for the guests to keep a clean sheet.
Moreover, Livi had failed to keep their nets clean in 12 of their last 13 trips on the road too.
By the looks of things, the BTTS bet holds great potential.
