Scroll down to see all of the predictions, poll and statistics for Livingston v Hibernian including the latest game odds.
Livingston will be hoping to bounce back here after a 1-0 Premiership losing effort in their last game against St Mirren.
In that match, Livingston managed 54% possession and 12 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target. On the other side, St Mirren got 6 shots on goal with 2 on target. Richard Tait (30') scored for St Mirren.
It has been seldom in recent times where Livingston have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that Livi Lions have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 matches, leaking 7 goals in the process. We will just have to find out whether or not that trend will end up being sustained in this game.
Their past results show that Livingston:
- have not been beaten in the league by Hibernian in their previous 3 matches.
- haven't been defeated in their previous 8 league matches at home. It's been impressive.
Hibernian will come into the game following on from a 2-1 Premiership win vs Kilmarnock in their previous game.
In that match, Hibernian had 44% possession and 11 attempts on goal with 3 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Hibernian was Martin Boyle (5', 34'). Kilmarnock got 12 shots on goal with 2 on target. Chris Burke (44') scored for Kilmarnock.
Demonstrating their predisposition for action-packed encounters, goals have been scored 23 times in the prior 6 games in which Hibernian have played, making it a mean average of 3.83 goals for each clash. Opposition teams have hit 11 of these goals.
Head to head
Checking on their prior head to head meetings stretching back to 01/09/2018 shows that Livingston have won 2 of them and Hibernian 1, with the number of drawn results standing at 3.
An aggregate of 16 goals were produced between them throughout the course of those matches, with 9 of them for Livi Lions and 7 netted by The Hibees. That is an average goals per game value of 2.67.
The last league match between these sides was Premiership match day 28 on 22/02/2020 when it ended Hibernian 1-1 Livingston.
The referee was Alan Newlands.
Team News: Livingston
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just a single fitness concern for the Livingston manager Gary Holt to be concerned about from an otherwise fully-primed group. Alan Lithgow (Hip Injury) won’t play.
Team News: Hibernian
Due to a fully injury-free group to pick from, Hibernian manager Jack Ross doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this clash.
In our view, Hibernian and Livingston could both end up scoring in what appears to be a good match-up, with little separating these two teams.
Let’s see how this one goes, but it looks this could be a draw. We’re therefore seeing a very even match with a 1-1 score at full-time.
