St. Johnstone vs Livingston
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 12 December 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: McDiarmid Park (Perth).

St. Johnstone continues to stay unbeaten in the league for the sixth consecutive game in a row. However, their unbeaten streak consists more of draws than wins as of late (2W 4D). They will return home after sharing the spoils on the road with Celtic in a 1-1 scoreline last time out.

The 2-0 win at home against the likes of Dundee United in their previous clash broke Livingston’s five-game winless run in the campaign. The visitor has lost only one of their last five clashes across all major competitions in their schedule, including the League Cup fixtures.

St. Johnstone vs Livingston Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Their previous encounter gave a 2-0 home win for Livingston.
  • Both teams haven’t scored in their recent three matches.
  • The visitor has recorded three of the last five overall wins.
  • The host has lost none of their last ten clashes at home.

St. Johnstone vs Livingston Prediction

Consecutive three draws show that the defense is hanging by a loose thread in the backline. With such a shaky defense, pulling a straight win in the game will be hard for the home team.

St. Johnstone enjoys the ground advantage and has been unbeaten in the last three home matches in the league.

The Saints have hardly averaged at least a goal per match in the campaign, but their recent form is promising for a couple of goals. Besides, Livingston will be on the back of a win with a 1.0 goal per game average so far in their 16 appearances this season.

Based on these stats, we can come to the conclusion that the match is sizing to produce at least a couple of goals in ninety minutes.

So, the tip for over 1.5 goals will come in handy from the goals area.

Besides, the double chance favoring St. Johnstone will probably be the best bet regarding their current form in the campaign.
