Our Prediction:

Rangers will win

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

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.

Alfredo Morelos The Colombian forward scored 20 times before the winter break and contributed 11 assists too despite being sent off three times as well.Jermaine Defoe Scored on his debut, as he always seems to, and will want to back that up with more starts and more goals now.James Tavernier Nine goals from right-back is remarkable in itself, but the Englishman has also set up 14 goals so far this season.

The visitors are averaging 1.82 expected goals for on the road this season, while their recent away expected-goal for figures read: 3.16, 2.16, 1.31, 1.17 and 3.95. Rangers were beaten by title-rivals Kilmarnock on Wednesday night, but it must be said that they were unlucky. Moreover, Rangers have done well from an attacking point of view in recent away games, especially in terms of creativity. Steven Gerrards men offered lots more than their opponents, as the fact that they ended the match with an expected goal difference of +2.58 suggests. Such numbers bode well.

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.

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.

Rangers host Livingston for their Matchday 5 clash as they return from the International break, looking to bounce back to the winning ways after seeing their lengthy unbeaten streak ended by fierce rivals Celtic (0-2) at this ground. They now want more in an attempt to pick it up ahead of the Europa League clash against Feyenoord and to keep track of Celtic at the top of the table early on.

Rangers have more than enough about them to score against anyone in this division, while theyve consistently created plenty of chances away from home, but Livingston should not be dismissed from an attacking point of view. The hosts have scored in each of their last four at home, notching at total of 11 goals during that time, while theyve posted expected-goals for figures of 1.35, 4.4, 1.57 and 1.26, so they too can register on the score-sheet.

Ciaron Brown has signed on loan from Cardiff City but is only expected to serve as cover for the back three of Alan Lithgow, Craig Halkett and Declan Gallagher. Dolly Menga, the match winner when these sides last met in Livingston, went off injured in the Scottish Cup against Hearts, while Rangers loanee Ryan Hardie is ineligible. Ricki Lamie returned from his injury lay-off over the winter break and was at left wing-back against St Johnstone.

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.

Were backing the Gers to win to nil here by a narrow margin, with a final score of 1-0. Livingston comes into this clash in great form, not losing a single game since the beginning of their pre-season. Rangers will be desperate to put their latest defeat behind them and focus once again on the Premiership and keeping an eye out on their Europa League opener. The Gers home form, except their latest game against Celtic, has been impeccable in all competitions. However, itll be a tough time for the West Lothian outfit, but they wont let Rangers away with much. Gary Holts side has since won 8 and drawn 3 times.
