Team News: Celtic
Nir Bitton (Groin Injury) and Christopher Jullien (Knee Injury) are unavailable for Celtic boss John Kennedy.
Team News: Livingston
Thanks to a largely full-strength group of players, there’s just the lone fitness issue for the Livingston gaffer David Martindale to be concerned with. Keaghan Jacobs (Foot Injury) misses out for this game.
We believe that Celtic will most probably get the win and a possible clean sheet against Livingston, who may well find it hard scoring.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a comfortable 2-0 victory for Celtic when the full-time whistle blows.
