Hamilton vs Livingston
Date: Saturday, 27 April 2019
Kick-Off 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: The Hope CBD Stadium (Hamilton).
Hamilton Academical will try and take advantage of Livingston’s lack of motivation to claim salvation points on Saturday afternoon when these two likes take on each other in the second Matchday on the Relegation Round.
The hosts are in a tough position being just two points above St. Mirren who hold the relegation play-offs spot at the moment. They drew 1-1 at home to Motherwell last weekend in the maiden fixture of their Relegation Round campaign.
Livingston are 16 points above in third place and practically have nothing to play for at this stage of the competition. The 1-3 home loss to penultimate-placed St. Mirren came as a consequence of such approach. Will the Lions show more will to claim a result here at The Hope CBD Stadium?
Hamilton vs Livingston: Head-to-head
Hamilton can also rely on the head to head tradition which goes in their favour in this match-up.
The Accies lead the head to head tie by four wins coming into 32nd encounter with Livingston.
Four of past five H2H games saw home teams snatching the spoils.
Teams met each other at the start of the month when the Lions snatched a 2-0 victory at Tony Macaroni Arena.
Hamilton vs Livingston: Prediction
Livingston generally found goals hard to come by on travels so far in the season. They only scored 8 goals in 16 away ties in the league. Given they have nothing to play for and they’ll be up against a highly-motivated opposition, Hamilton’s clean sheet looks like a super strong pick at the odds of 3.00.
On top of this, the Accies go into this tie unbeaten in last three home outings. They shipped only two goals in the process. They lost just one of past six Premiership matches at The Hope CBD Stadium. We thus have to go for the home win or draw double chance at the odds of 1.55.
