Livingston vs Aberdeen
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 21 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue:  Almondvale Stadium (Livingston).

Livingston’s unbeaten run in the new season was brought to an abrupt halt by Rangers who posted a 3-1 scoreline in their favor at the end of the ninety minutes. Despite taking an initial lead, the squad failed to keep their foes at bay and subsequently let in three goals to hand Steven Gerrard’s men the win.

Aberdeen have not been able to hit the ground running in their respective campaign and have just one win to boast of from their last three games. The away side had to share the spoils in their most recent clash at home against St Johnstone, while on the road they played out a less than exciting stalemate in their matchup with Kilmarnock.

Nevertheless, the visitors have a solid head to head record with this foe and will be optimistic of picking up their third win of the season.

Livingston vs Aberdeen Head to head (h2h)

  • Aberdeen have not admitted defeat in any of their previous ten games.
  • Their last encounter ended in a 1-1 draw.
  • Both teams have found the back of the net together in their previous three clashes in a row.
  • Only one of their last five meetings at this venue have featured over 2.5 goals on the charts.

Livingston vs Aberdeen Prediction

The home team have not tasted defeat in any of their last four games across multiple competitions. However, it is worth mentioning that their opponents so far have been far less competitive as opposed to Aberdeen, who finished in the championship group last time around.

Furthermore, Livingston have not been faring well against this side even with home advantage intact and have registered a win just twice in their previous eleven fixtures here. So, the favorites to come away with all three points will have to be Aberdeen in this one.

However, five of those eleven clashes have seen both teams salvage no more than a point each.  Considering that the visitors were held to a draw in their last outing as well, the safest punt is a double chance favoring the away side.

Additionally, Aberdeen have been opening the scoring in each of their last five overall head to head clashes. Taking into account that two of their last three meetings here have also seen the away side get their names on the scoresheet first, count on Aberdeen to be the ones to break the deadlock on Saturday.
