Livingston vs Dundee United betting tips: Scottish League Cup Second Round preview, predictions and odds

Match preview

Safe to say, Dundee United are going through a bit of a crisis right now.

On Sunday, the Tangerines were demolished 9-0 by Celtic at Tannadice, the biggest defeat of the club’s 113-year history.

This beat the previous record set just 17 days earlier when the Arabs were hammered 7-0 by AZ in the Europa Conference League.

Overall, Dundee United have now lost five consecutive matches, conceding 24 and scoring just once.

So Jack Ross, who’s only been in charge for seven games, may no longer be the manager by the time this cup tie comes around.

Thus, Livingston will fancy their chances of getting through, even though they too suffered a heavy defeat at the weekend.

Jack Fitzwater was sent off on the cusp of half time at Pittodrie on Saturday, with Livi then conceding five times against Aberdeen.

That’s now back-to-back defeats for the Lions, who’d won successive matches beforehand.

In this competition, Davie Martindale’s men only got through as one of the best-ranked group runners-up, but are dreaming of a second final appearance in three seasons.

Can Dundee United end their horrendous losing streak at the Tony Macaroni Arena?
