St. Mirren vs Livingston Prediction & Match Preview

St. Mirren vs Livingston
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 1 August 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: The Simple Digital Arena.

Livi have been the better team the last season than the Buddies, and it’s evident from the fact that they had a lead of ten points in the table by the time the campaign was called off. Still, they have been performing a little off the mark lately, and especially so on the road.

On the other hand, Jim Goodwin’s men have been marginally better in recent games, and they are at home as well. As such, expect Gary Holt’s men to concede at least once through the ninety minutes.

However, the overall h2h superiority of Livi, and their determination to begin the season on a positive note, should help them to deliver the better performance this Saturday.

St. Mirren vs Livingston: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Holt’s men had recorded five of the past seven overall wins.
  • They had scored two or more goals in five of the last seven fixtures.
  • The latest game had ended in a 2-1 win for them.
  • At this stadium, the guests had registered five of the preceding seven wins.
  • Only twice have the hosts failed to score goals at this stadium since 1999.

St. Mirren vs Livingston: Prediction

Livi have been the better team between these two for the past two decades. In fact, in the last 20 years, only twice have Holt’s men lost at this stadium in h2h clashes, and they had also failed to score just twice in the period.

Moreover, they had registered five of the preceding seven overall h2h wins, and have scored two or more goals in five of the last seven meetings too.

As such, expect Livingston to avoid a loss at the very least this weekend. However, understand that they are on a winless run of five matches at present, and have not kept clean sheets in their last eight games as well.

On the other hand, their opposite number have lost just twice in their last ten appearances at home, and one of these was against Celtic. Likely, expect them to score at least once this Saturday.
