Hearts vs Livingston Predictions and Match Preview

Hearts vs Livingston
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Wednesday, 6th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Tynecastle Stadium (Edinburgh).

The top positions of the Premiership are under siege, and the second to the fifth positions is actually anyone’s to take right now. The Jam Tarts have been performing their hearts out to lay a definitive claim on one of them. And now they have been rewarded with an opponent that’s really struggling to string together a decent set of passes.

Livi is riding on their earlier success, and once the initial high was over, the team failed to make anything worthwhile with their time in the league. They are going through multiple winless streaks at home as well as on the road. Week by week, their chance to get back into the top half is getting away from them, and as things stand, a change won’t be in the cards this match-day either.

Hearts vs Livingston Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Six of the last seven wins were recorded by the Famous.
  • The Jambos kept six clean sheets in their last eight h2h ties.
  • The Lions have scored just a total of seven goals from their last 12 visits to Edinburgh.
  • Eight of the last 13 fixtures at the Tynecastle Stadium saw the hosts scoring two or more times.
  • Gary Holt’s men are winless at this venue since 2002.

Hearts vs Livingston Prediction

The Lions have lost all of their last six overall ties and has not won in the last eight attempts. On the road, the team was winless in their last 12 trips and endured 8 losses during this stretch. The Famous, meanwhile, won five of their last six games, and four of their last five home-ties. Also, they have not lost at home against this opponent for the last 17 years. That’s a very tough habit to drop for the visitors, and expect Craig Levein’s men to register three points.

Livi has failed to score in their last four games, eight of their last twelve away ties, six of their last eight h2h ties, and their last four trips to this stadium. Expect the home-team to pile on this and keep their nets clean. Additionally, the Jam Tarts have not scored more than three goals in their last 20 match-days.

I predict the score to be 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0, for the hosts.
