Livingston vs Kilmarnock
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 23rd February 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Almondvale Stadium (Livingston).
Both teams are going through a terrible spell at the moment. For the last six match-days in a row, either have not tasted a win, but for Livingston, the streak has been a much longer one. The team has not been at the winning end of the pitch for the last ten fixtures and even lost seven of these ten.
The similarities in their current forms don’t end there, despite the apparent difference in stature in the league table. While Livingston is winless in their last three attempts at home, Kilmarnock has not won in their last three road trips.
It’s evident from these settings in place, that both teams will plan their tactics around their primary objective, which is to avoid a loss.

- The teams on the road failed to score in the last three match-ups in a row.

- Livingston failed to score in six of their last ten appearances in front of their home crowd.
- Five of the last six Premiership games had only one or none of the sides on the scoresheet.
Livingston vs Kilmarnock Prediction
The struggles that either have been having in the last several games will definitely drive them to avoid a loss at all costs. While Kilmarnock has not won in their last six attempts, their counterparts have taken it an extra mile and stood clear of a win in their last ten tries. But Livingston has the home status in this fixture and likely will cancel out the minor advantage Kilmarnock will be having in terms of form.
Moreover, the hosts for this tie have lost their last three home games, and their opposite number were winless in six of their last seven games away from home.
Also, if we take into account that Livingston has failed to score in five of their last six games, and Kilmarnock in their last three in a row, I’m inclined to go for a goalless draw at the least, in the first half. And further note that the score was 0-0 for the last time they met at this ground.
