Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Rugby Park will host Saturday’s football game between Kilmarnock and Livingston. The Killie are eyeing their only second win of the season and their performances before the Celtic Park defeat are surely fuelling fans with optimism ahead of upcoming challenges. Both Kyle Magennis and Liam Donnelly are out of contention through injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
The Lions, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Motherwell and they managed to get one. Livingston have a chance to climb to 4th place in the standings, but beating Kilmarnock at Rugby Park is easier said than accomplished. Taking everything into account, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw. Livingston midfielder Cristian Montano has yet to recover from a calf injury, but he should be the only absentee in the visiting team.
Highlighted Team (Kilmarnock):
Founded on January 5, 1869, Kilmarnock are the oldest professional club in Scotland. The Killie welcome their opponents at Rugby Park, the stadium with the artificial turf. The venue, which was opened back in August 1899, can hold up to 17,889 people.
Kilmarnock won their first and only Scotland Premier League trophy in the 1964/65 season despite being level on points with Hearts at the end of the season. Fellow Ayrshire club Ayr United are considered the Killie’s bitterest rivals. The two teams have been facing each other in the Ayrshire derby since September 1910.
Dark blue is the dominant colour of the club’s home kit, while Kilmarnock footballers wear yellow and blues kit when playing on the travels. The Killie recorded their biggest win back in 1896, with the team beating Saltcoats Victoria 13-2 in the second round of the Scottish Qualifying Cup. The club suffered their biggest defeat in August 1938 as they were hammered by Celtic 9-1 in the Scottish League Division.
