On the 19th of September, Livingston will host Celtic at Tony Macaroni Arena in a meeting of these two Premiership teams. Livingston is fresh off their 0-2 loss against Hibernian. Kevin Nisbet struck first for Hibernian in the 51st minute on a feed from Paul McGinn, then Martin Boyle added another in the 89th minute on a feed from Scott Allan In the end, Livingston couldn’t muster any offence and Hibernian ran away with the shutout win. Livingston looks to improve on their recent performance, having earned only 6 points in their last 10 matches, while celtic is fresh off their 0-1 loss against Rangers. Filip Helander scored the first goal for Rangers in the 66th minute, and that single goal was all that was necessary as neither team could manage any more scoring In the end, Celtic was frustrated by Rangers’s defence and couldn’t put any tallies on the board. Rangers ended the match with the shutout victory. Celtic is looking for direction having earned 12 points in their last 10 matches.
This match will be the first time these two teams face eachother this season. Last season Celtic won the head to head battle with 2 wins and 2 draws.
Celtic is fortunate enough to have David Turnbull in top form. In the last 5 matches the attacker has scored 5 goals. Livingston is having problems scoring lately. Their top scorers, Bruce Anderson and Alan Forrest each only have 1 goal in their last five.
