Hibernian vs Livingston
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 2 January 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Easter Road.
The Lions might be the best team in the competition along with Celtic and Rangers, on basis of their recent form. They are on an impressive winning run at the moment, and having been scoring in plenty in the process.
They also have two games in hand, and are placed sixth in the table with 24 points. Meanwhile, the fifth-placed Dundee United are pitted against the in-form Aberdeen, who are placed third in standings.
Likely, there’s an opportunity for David Martindale’s men to climb further high up the table.
Meanwhile, the Hibs are going through a worrying stretch. They have been dropping an alarming number of points lately and just the last match-day, they had lost against Ross County – who are placed second to last in the table.
Likely, expect Livingston to have the edge this weekend.
Hibernian vs Livingston: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Jack Ross’s men won the latest clash with a 1-4 scorecard on the road. The game had taken place just four months back.
- They had also registered 13 of the former 15 overall wins.
- Eight of the preceding nine meetings had goals from both teams.
- The hosts had won every single clash at this stadium since 2005, barring three draws.
Hibernian vs Livingston: Prediction
The Lions are on a six-game winning run, and had also won eight of the preceding nine fixtures. They have also scored two or more goals in all of these eight match-ups, and four or more goals in three of these games.
At home, they have lost just once since August, and just thrice all through 2020.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a two-game losing run, and they were also winless in three of their former four match-ups. They had also remained so in seven of their last twelve appearances at home.
Considering these stats, expect Livingston to secure at least a draw this Saturday.
However, note that Ross’s men had recorded a 1-4 win in the latest h2h encounter – which had taken place just four months back, and they had also registered 13 of the preceding 15 overall h2h wins.
For the reasons, expect Hibernian to score at least once at the Easter Road.
