Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Pittodrie Stadium will host Tuesday’s football game between Aberdeen and Livingston. The Dons have been impressive at the back of late, with the team eyeing their fourth consecutive clean sheet in the Scottish top flight. Aberdeen are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in the midweek fixture, and given Livingston’s solid defence, a low-scoring affair is on the cards. Michael Devlin is sidelined with injury, while Curtis Main is rated doubtful for the match.
The Lions, on the other hand, did well to keep a clean sheet in each of their last three league fixtures. Since Livingston are likely to adopt a defence-minded approach in the Pittodrie Stadium clash, we believe that there is a big value in betting on under 2.5 goals. Keaghan Jacobs is out of contention with injury, while Alan Lithgow is rated doubtful, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
Highlighted Player (Funso Ojo ):
Funso Ojo is a Belgium international who plays for Aberdeen as a midfielder. Ojo was born in Antwerp on August 28, 1991, starting his youth career at Olse Merksem. In 2004 he was spotted by PSV scouts, moving to Eindhoven very soon.
Funso Ojo made 11 appearances for PSV in the Dutch Eredivisie before moving to Beerschot AC, yet another club from his youth career. The Belgium international played for the likes of Royal Antwerp, Dordrecht, Willem II, and Scunthorpe United before signing a deal with Aberdeen in 2019. Funso Ojo made his Scotland Premiership debut in a 3-2 win over Hearts.
Speaking of his international career, Ojo has one cap with the Belgium U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the Belgium senior team. His primary position is central midfield, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a defensive midfielder. As his parents are of Nigeria descent, the Aberdeen footballer has a dual citizenship.
Highlighted Team (Livingston):
Nicknamed the Lions, Livingstone are the Scottish Premier League club founded during the Second World War (1943) under the name of Ferranti Amateurs. Livingston welcome their opponents at Almondvale Stadium, the venue with the capacity of 9,512.
The Lions are known for their amber home kit, with the team wearing white when playing on the travels. Livingston have yet to win the Scottish Premier League title, but they did remarkably well to go all the way in the Scottish League Cup in the 2003/2004 season. The Lions recorded a 2-0 win over Hibernian in the title game played at Hampden Park in Glasgow.
Livingston registered their biggest win against Stranraer (8-0) in August 2012 in the first round of the Scottish League Cup, while their most massive defeat came on December 14, 1974, as they were beaten 8-0 by Hamilton. Legendary Premier League coach Paul Lambert is regarded as one of the club’s most notable players.
