Rangers are without a doubt a tough team to beat, and even more so, in their own backyard. With Livingston struggling to get things going on the road, nothing short of a miracle is going to stop the hosts from securing the win this Saturday.

Rangers vs Livingston Prediction
Rangers were in for a shock upset in their last clash on the road, after Kilmarnock posted a 2-1 scorecard at the last blast of the whistle. Despite heading into the break 1-0 up in that latter matchup, the hosts let down their guard post the restart and were punished with late two goals.
Nevertheless, Steven Gerrard’s men are still playing second fiddle to Celtic on the ladder and are nineteen points ahead of third-placed Aberdeen.
On the other hand, Livingston bounced back from a 2-0 defeat to Ross County at home, by taking down St. Mirren on the road with a 2-1 scorecard. The visitors have now stumbled just once in their past seven games in the Premiership.
Be that as it may, it needs saying that Livingston have been a nervous bunch on the road this season. Miserably, they have dropped points in eleven of their past thirteen outings on the trot.
In sharp contrast, Rangers are unbeaten in their past ten top-flight games at home. To make matters worse for the traveling faithful, the hosts have secured the bragging rights in each of their past five meetings here.
Given that the home team have also won their last three h2h encounters here by a two-goal margin or more, count on Rangers to breeze past the visitors in this one.
Furthermore, Rangers have been scoring goals at will on home soil. In fact, they have racked up thirty goals here so far, which is also the second-highest tally in the cluster.
Additionally, Livingston have not looked organized at the back, especially in their outings. Disappointingly twenty-eight of the thirty-four goals that they have conceded up till now have come from their clashes on the road.
Taking into account that all but one of their past five h2h meetings here have also been high scoring affairs, expect no dearth of goals this weekend either.
