Livingston vs Hibernian Prediction & Match Preview

Livingston vs Hibernian
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Sunday, 29 December 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Almondvale Stadium (Livingston).

Hibernian may be placed fifth in the table, but they have had conceded the same number of goals as that of the dead-last placed Hearts. This translates into just one thing – the team is stuck with an uninspired and weak defense to work along with a superior frontline. This apparent shortcoming will certainly be addressed by the hosts for the day, Livingston.

Livingston vs Hibernian Prediction

Livingston had tried their best the last match-day on the road. They were taking on Aberdeen, and finished the game 2-1, in favor of the hosts.

In the meantime, Hibernian took advantage of their match against the out-of-form Hearts, and delivered a much-needed win for the former, who were on the road. The scoreline read 0-2 at the end of the ninety minutes.

This Sunday, from the perspective of the result, Hibernian come out on top. They were unbeaten in 12 of their last 16 match-ups, and had won five of their previous nine games.

On the road, they remained invincible in six of their preceding eight trips, and won three of their last five too. Keep note that one of these losses away from home had come against Celtic.

However on the other hand, Livingston were winless in 14 of their previous 17 overall match-ups, and were so in five of their former eight appearances at this venue.

Importantly, Hibernian have dominated this opponent in h2h clashes by a clear extent. In fact, nine of the last ten overall h2h wins went to Hibernian, and so did six of the previous eight at this stadium.

Considering these observations, it’s clear that Hibernian will have some sort of upper hand this Sunday, and as a result, a loss to them is very unlikely.

However, Livingston do have the home advantage, and the ongoing streak of finding the back of the net in each of their past four games. They had also scored a total of seven goals in their last two overall matches at home.

Meanwhile, Hibernian had failed to keep a clean sheet in 19 of their last 22 overall games, and in 20 of their previous 23 on the road.

Most importantly, the last six h2h matches in a row, and 11 of the prior 14 overall, all had goals from both teams.

Reading all these together, it’s rightfully adjudged that the BTTS emerges as a great pick this Sunday.
