Livingston vs Celtic betting tips: Scottish Premiership preview, predictions and odds

Match preview

Celtic will not be involved in post-Christmas knockout European football, so it’s full steam ahead domestically as they seek to regain the title.

On Tuesday night, despite taking the lead through Giorgos Giakoumakis, the Hoops could only draw 1-1 with Shakhtar Donetsk at Parkhead.

This means they remain winless in this season’s Champions League, and are guaranteed to finish rock bottom.

Back in the Premiership, Ange Postecoglou’s team are now four points clear, following last weekend’s thrilling 4-3 victory over Hearts.

James Forrest, Giakoumakis, Daizen Maeda and Greg Taylor all scoring in a serious contender for game of the season at Tynecastle.

So, will the Bhoys, at least, maintain their four point advantage at the top?

Since Livingston returned to the top-flight in 2018, Celtic have only won one of six visits to Almondvale, this a 3-1 victory in March.

Last weekend, Livi looked like beating Rangers at Ibrox for the very first time, taking an early lead through Joel Nouble.

Morgan Boyes was sent off, following VAR review, with the Light Blues snatching an equaliser in stoppage time.

Nevertheless, this is still a precious point for Davie Martindale’s men who, at home, have won three of their last four.

Will the league-leaders come unstuck again at the Tony Macaroni Arena?
