Any lingering doubts about Celtic’s chances of winning yet another Scottish title were well and truly squashed following some excellent performances from the Hoops in recent weeks. Brendan Rodgers’ men enjoyed two emphatic wins over table-topping Heart of Midlothian (5-0 in Scottish Premiership and 0-3 in League Cup) as well as a huge 5-0 hammering of rock-bottom side Dundee, however even more impressive was their midweek Europa League win over RB Leipzig at Celtic Park with Rodgers’ side appearing to have rediscovered the art of scoring.
Indeed the reigning Scottish champions have seen the goals flying in from all directions and they will be eager to continue this excellent run when they travel to Livingston on Sunday, the bookmakers giving away free bets on Livingston v Celtic.
Following their promotion from the Scottish Championship at the end of last season, Livingston have certainly been the surprise package of the top-flight this term and they have proven themselves to be tough opposition at the Tony Macaroni Arena. The West Lothian side dropped just two points in their five games in front of the home fans although this excellent run came to an end when they lost 0-1 at home to St Johnstone at the end of October. More misery was to come their way when they lost by the same scoreline at Hamilton Academical last time out and it’s hard to see Livingston bouncing back from these disappointing results when Celtic come to town.
The Bhoys have been defensively solid in recent weeks with three clean sheets in their last three domestic matches across all competitions, therefore we’ll be siding with the visitors to continue in a similar vein when they face Livingston this weekend, BetVictor Bookmakers going 4/5 on Celtic to win-to-nil.
