Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Tony Macaroni Arena will host Saturday’s football game between Livingston and Aberdeen. The Lions suffered back-to-back defeats to Celtic (0-6) and Hibernian (1-2) in the previous two league fixtures, and, as a result, their Europa Conference League hopes are ruined. Since the hosts have little to play for in the season finale, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on David Martindale’s charges.
The Dons, on the other hand, aim to cement their spot in top four, and seeing that they were on the verge of beating Celtic in their last league match, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visiting team. In their last meeting in the Scottish Premier League Livingston defeated Aberdeen 2-0, meaning that the visitors are hungry for revenge. You should bear in mind that the Dons are eyeing their sixth away win of the process.
