Recent respective form guides

Livingston's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Livi have scored 7, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Celtic's away form is none too clever either, seeing them pick up six wins out of six. These six games have produced a glut of goals, with the The Bhoys scoring 17 and conceding 3.

Livingston are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 24 points from 31 matches. Celtic are just outside the promotion places, in 2nd, having taken 77 points from 31 games.
