Partick Thistle vs Livingston
Scottish Premiership Play-offs
Date: Sunday, 20 May 2018
Kick-Off at 15:30 UK / 16:30 CET
Venue: The Energy Check Stadium, Glasgow.
Livingston proved out to be a tough nut to crack for Partick Thistle even though the Jags got off to a fantastic start of the first leg clash at Tony Macaroni Arena when Kris Doolan out them in front just ten minutes into the game. The Lions came up with an immediate response as Keaghan Jacobs levelled the score only three minutes later.
Scott Pittman eventually bagged his second goal of the playoffs campaign to bring a huge victory for Livingston who will travel to the capital high on confidence after the first leg showing. David Hopkin and his men still have a mountain to climb give their advantage is only a slim one ahead of the huge test and the electrifying atmosphere awaiting at The Energy Check Stadium in Glasgow.
Partick Thistle vs Livingston: Head-to-head
Teams notched 14 wins each ahead of their 39th head to head encounter.
Both sides scored in four of last five H2H meetings.
The two clubs met in the League Cup last year when Livingston went through on penalties after the regular 90 minutes ended in a 1-1 draw at Tony Macaroni Arena.
At home, Partick won 9, drew 4 and lost 4 of 17 meetings with the Lions.
Partick Thistle vs Livingston: Prediction
The Jags won just 2 of last 14 matches in the league, a record Alan Archibald can by no means be happy with. Partick have huge issues with the efficiency in the final third and they’ve scored just five times in last ten Premiership games in the regular season.
Livingston have already made a huge effort by eliminating Dundee United in the playoffs semis and we’d not be surprised to see them repeating such an accomplishment against the out-of-form side here. The value is strong with the visitors not to lose at the odds of 1.90, while punters who prefer safer options can back Livingston to qualify at the 1.53 odds.
