Livingston vs St. Mirren Prediction & Match Preview

Livingston vs St. Mirren
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 31 August 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Almondvale Stadium (Livingston).

Livingston have got off to a dream start in the new season and are currently one of the only three teams in the table that are yet to taste defeat. Following back to back draws against Motherwell and St Johnston, the squad stepped up their game with an emphatic 4-1 win over Ross County on the road last weekend.

St. Mirren went back to being at the losing end in their most recent matchup after the visitors were handed a 1-0 loss by Rangers at home. The away side have just one win in their campaign to boast of and have no more than one goal in the bag from three games as well.

The hosts are currently on a very impressive three-match unbeaten streak and are likely to be too hot to handle for St Mirren when they square up against each other in the weekend.

Livingston vs St. Mirren Head to head (h2h)

  • Three out of their last six meetings have seen Livingston come out on top.

  • Only one of their last ten matches have ended in a stalemate.
  • A high scoring clash has occurred twice in their previous five games.

Livingston vs St. Mirren Prediction

The home team have not been shy in racking up the goals tally in their recent fixtures and have found the back of the net thirteen times from their last five matchups alone. The squad are also undefeated in their previous seven games across all competitions.

On the other hand, St Mirren have been far from convincing in their respective clashes and are without a win in their last three outings. The guests have also lost their only trip on the road in the new campaign.

Moreover, the away side have got the better of Livingston just once in their last three visits here and have lost by a two-goal margin or more in those defeats. Given the stellar start that the hosts have got off, Livingston are sizing up to be the favorites to grab the win in this one.

The hosts have been breaking the deadlock in their last three games in a running. Taking into consideration that they also opened the scoring in their last meeting with St Mirren here as well, there is certainly reason to believe that Livingston will be finding the back of the net before their foes on Saturday.
