Celtic can maintain their grip at the top of the Scottish Premiership when they take on Livingston at Parkhead on Wednesday.

Still boasting a healthy nine-point lead at the summit of the division, the Hoops continue to look like an unstoppable force in Scotland, with Ange Postecoglu´s side losing just one of their previous 55 league matches over the past 14 months.

However, they can expect a difficult night with visiting Livingston, now sitting fourth in the Premiership, usually competitive opponents in this fixture.

Celtic vs Livingston: Celtic -1,5 AH to win

However, in spite of Livingston´s superb form, it´s hard to see past the Celtic victory. The Hoops have won each of their last thirteen home PL games, scoring two goals or more in all 13 victories.

Given that run of consistency, we´re backing Celtic to maintain their superb winning run with the hosts backed to score two or more in a comfortable, if not an entirely easy, victory against a side that does know how to frustrate their more illustrious opponents.

Celtic Team News

While Celtic have every reason to be cheerful and equally confident about their chances of picking up the points here, Livingston does have a more than decent record in this fixture. Since 2018, Livi have actually taken a point or more in eight of their last 14 games against Celtic. However, the Hoops have had the better of more recent meetings, with three successive victories during their fabulous run over the past 14 months.  It is worth noting that Livi have left Parkhead with three 0:0 draws in recent years, although Celtic claimed a 2:1 win when these sides last met at this venue just over a month ago.
