Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Buoyed by a 3-1 win over Hibernian, Celtic will be aiming to put an extra pressure on Rangers when they host Livingston to their Celtic Park. The Hoops have been in a splendid form of late, with the team eyeing their sixth consecutive win in all competitions. Tom Rogic, who suffered an injury in the midweek triumph, is unlikely to feature against Livingston. A man to watch in the home team will be Japan international Kyogo Furuhashi, who has found his goal-scoring touch of late.
The Lions, on the other hand, head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Dundee United. Livingston did well to beat both St Johnstone and Ross County in the previous two away games, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Saturday’s showdown. Talented midfielder Ben Williamson is banned for the visiting team as he was sent off in the midweek clash.
Highlighted Player (Christopher Jullien):
Christopher Jullien is a professional footballer who plays for Toulouse as a defender. The 195-cm-tall centre-back played for Auxere youth team from 2005 to 2011 and he made his first-team debut for the club on August 24, 2012 in a 2-1 win over Stade Lavallois.
Christopher Jullien scored his first ever goal a week later in a Coupe de la Ligue clash against Dijon. The French defender made 25 appearances in the league for Auxerre and in 2013 he moved to Germany, signing a professional contract with Freiburg. Jullien made only one appearance for the first team, but it has to be noted that he scored five goals in 49 games for the second team. After ending his loan spell with Dijon in the summer of 2016, he signed a four-year deal with Ligue 1 side Toulouse.
Christopher Jullien scored four goals, while providing one assist for his teammates in the 2016/2017 Ligue 1 campaign. The French footballer was born on March 22, 1993 in Lagny-sur-Marne and his preferred foot is right.
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.
