Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Livingston play host to Dundee at their Tony Macaroni Arena in what is expected to be a close Premiership encounter. The Lions defeated Raith in the Scottish Cup last 32, with the team putting an end to their dreadful winless run and, no doubt, the triumph gave them a confidence boost. Keep in mind, though, that all Montano, Guthrie, and Devlin suffered some sorts of injuries in the Scottish Cup victory at the weekend.
The Dark Blues, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 3-2 loss to Hearts. Dundee have a nice opportunity to climb to the Championship Group places and given Livingston’s dreadful winless run in the Scottish top flight, away win should definitely be considered. Tony Docherty has a full squad to choose from except for Mexico defender Antonio Portales, who remains on the sidelines with a hamstring injury.
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.
