Tip Reasoning

  • There have been under 2.5 goals scored in eight of Hibernian’s last nine league games.
  • There have been under 2.5 goals scored in seven of Livingston’s last eight league matches.
  • Hibernian are undefeated in 12 of their last 13 home matches against Livingston in all competitions.

Two sides which need three points for different reasons

Hibernian can propel themselves into the top four if they claim victory on Saturday, other results permitting, whilst visitors Livingston will be looking to back to winning ways after suffering defeat during the midweek round of fixtures.

Hibs are coming off the back of a goalless draw against fellow top-six side Motherwell during the week, despite the fact that the Steelmen were required to play with 10 men in the second half. Shaun Maloney will have been disappointed that his side were unable to find a way through in order to claim three valuable points, but this match represents an ideal opportunity to give their chances of finishing in a top-four spot a boost.

Livingston themselves are in dire need of three points to help them secure their position as a Scottish Premier League outfit, as they currently sit just six points above the relegation zone. It means that every game is vital and the pressure is on. If they’re defeated here, it would hand Dundee the opportunity to close the gap and leave Livingston looking even more precariously over their shoulders. Goals have been exceptionally difficult to come by for the visitors and only one other side has scored fewer goals this term.

A game with few goals

Neither of these two sides are prolific goalscorers and a defeat here would be a major setback for either side. As such, we’re expecting a very cagey game and we think that there will be a low number of goals scored here so U2.5 goals is the angle that we like. Hibernian are the better side and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see them pick up a narrow victory.
