Our Prediction:

Rangers will win

Livingston – Rangers Match Prediction | 25-09-2019 14:45

They have lost just one of their last six against Rangers at home, however, winning the last two 1-0. Livingston have won only three of their 27 previous matches against Rangers, with seven draws and 17 defeats. One of those was in the Championship in 2016, while this years two fixtures after Livingstons promotion in the summer have ended in a 1-0 Livi win before Rangers hit back at Ibrox in the reverse fixture. Dolly Menga scored the only goal in the former, before Candeias, Alfredo Morelos and Scott Arfield earned Rangers a 3-0 win in November.

Going forward, without being imperious, Livingston have done well; theyve scored an average of 1.73 goals in front of their own fans, while theyve conceded a very impressive 0.45. Sundays hosts have lost just one of their last five at home, while theyve thrashed Hearts during that time, while they also managed to hold league leaders Celtic to a draw, which will certainly give them confidence ahead of this match. Theyve also given away just 0.67 expected goals on average, which suggests that theyre capable of stopping teams from creating. Fortunately, Livingston can draw on several good performances at Almondvale Stadium this season.

At the prices, the bet that catches the eye is Both Teams to Score. Given that they were unlucky in the week, coupled with the fact that theyve generally looked good going forward on the road, it would be easy to side with the visitors, though they look a bit short in the betting. Livingston are no mugs on home soil, thats for sure.

Things were going well for Livingston towards the end of December; they were unbeaten in three, had conceded just one goal in over 270 minutes of football and were generally playing quite well; however, things have since taken a turn for the worse. That will need to be addressed if theyre to get anything off a Rangers side that will undoubtedly be chomping at the bit to right the wrongs of Wednesday evening. Their performance during the week wasnt terrible and they were competitive, but they lacked ideas going forward.

Scott Pittman Four goals and five assists and an important creative link between midfield and attack so far this season.Liam Kelly The former Rangers stopper would love another clean sheet at home against his former team, having kept them out when they last met in West Lothian.Chris Erskine Livi have lacked goals this season and, with Menga and Hardie out, the new signing from Partick Thistle needs to come up with some.

After going level with Celtic at the top of the league before the winter break, winning the Old Firm derby 1-0 thanks to Ryan Jacks goal, Rangers lost their first game back in mid-week. After their Scottish Cup tie at Cowdenbeath was called off due to a frozen pitch, Rangers travelled to Kilmarnock but lost 2-1 despite Jermaine Defoes debut goal putting them in front.

With Livingston out of form, this is a big chance to take all three points back to Glasgow. Expert Verdict: Rangers have a surprisingly poor record in this fixture of late - at Livingston anyway - but a lot has changed since Livi's early-season home win. Rangers are back on track and will be keen to get back to winning ways after the mid-week defeat to Kilmarnock cost them ground in the title race.
