Livingston vs Dundee United Prediction & Match Preview

Livingston vs Dundee United
Scottish Premiership
Date: Saturday, 5 December 2020
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: Tony Macaroni Arena.

Dundee United were promoted to the top flight last season and so far they demonstrated fine form in the new Premiership campaign. The Tangerines are sitting in high 5th place after collecting 20 points from opening 15 clashes. Can they increase the numbers this weekend at Tony Macaroni Arena against Livingston?

Hosts are surely not satisfied with the current standings and 10th position, having only 12 points and third worst goal difference in the league. Despite such difference in results so far, bookies still favour home team here at 1.95 odds to win the match. The main reason behind that is Dundee’s poor form on the road.

Livingston vs Dundee United Head-to-head

These two teams have already met once in this year’s Premiership. Livingston defeated Dundee United on the road 2-1 after a comeback. Game-winning goal was scored by Alan Forrest in the stoppage time.

Total number of games played so far is 25, and Livingston have narrow ten to nine lead in terms of victories.

Five out of the last six meetings ended either Over 2.5 goals or with BTTS.

Livingston vs Dundee United Prediction

After a poor start to the new season, Livingston have recovered in the last couple of weeks. They were very successful in League Cup, beating Stenhousemuir, Airdrie and Ayr consecutively with total goal difference of 12-1. They had very solid results in Premiership last season, and since roster hasn’t changed much, we are expecting them to start progressing towards top six.

Team has to improve on efficiency, as scoring 14 goals in 15 games is just too low. Dundee United are in decent shape, but winless in the last five games on the road. Also, one of the best players Nicky Clark suffered a knock and his appearance on Saturday afternoon is questionable. We will back home win here with mid-sized stake.

Livingston vs Dundee United Bet Tips

  • Home win @ 1.95
  • 2 or 3 goals total @ 1.95.
