Motherwell vs Livingston Prediction & Match Preview

Motherwell vs Livingston
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 2nd February 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Fir Park (Motherwell).

The recent results of either team could not be more contrasting. While the Dossers are flying high with three wins running, in the league, their opposite number returned to the dressing room with their heads bowed and zero points, the last five occasions.

The Well might also consider this tie as an opportunity to rectify their shortcomings in earlier home-ties and compensate for lost time. Although a trip to the Championship Group might be out of their bounds, at least for the next few weeks, they could easily carve a safe spot for themselves among the lower-tier teams.

Livi truly does appear lost and have searched for solutions for a long time with no avail. The only reason that they are not at the extreme end of the table is that they managed to begin their season on a comparatively positive note. But that well might run dry at a moment’s notice, and it’s high time that they put some decent performances in.

Motherwell vs Livingston Head-to-head (h2h)

  • 11 of the last 12 wins belong to the Steelmen.
  • Nine of the last twelve games had under 2.5 goals.
  • Four of the last five ties at the Fir Park ended with below three goals.
  • The hosts scored either a single goal or two, in seven of their last eight home-ties.
  • The Dossers did the same in 11 of the last 12 overall games.

Motherwell vs Livingston Prediction

First things first. The home advantage would be a very huge deciding factor in turning the game in the Steelmen’s way, considering the struggles their opponents are going through right now. Also, the Well has won their last three league ties in a row. Furthermore, in h2h ties, they have dominated the Lions for a very long time. 11 of the last 12 wins and the last four wins at this venue belong to them.

Livi has failed to score in their last three fixtures, lost their last five, and failed to win their last seven. They are also winless in their last 11 away ties in succession. There’s little chance that they would come out of this game unscratched. I expect the hosts to win the game while keeping a clean sheet.

The home team has not scored more than three goals for more than six months, and have not done so in a league game for more than a year. A scoreline of 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 is expected.
