Bitesize Prediction: Livingston vs Celtic – 31/03/24

Competition: Scottish Premiership

Market: Kyogo Furuhashi to score anytime

Odds: 21/20 @ 1xBet

Desperate to mark their return from March’s international break with a statement, Celtic will travel to the Almondvale Stadium when they meet Livingston on Sunday lunchtime.

Starting with the hosts, heading into March’s international break with a routine 3-0 drumming at the hands of Hibernian, Livingston have endured a public Premiership nightmare this season. Marking their return from the fortnight interval sat rock-bottom of the table, David Martindale’s men are tipped as a landslide relegation contender in 2024. Crashing out of the Scottish Cup earlier in the month as they slumped to a 4-2 loss against Celtic, the Lions have also collected just a single point from any of their previous four Premiership appearances. Signing off February with a 3-1 loss at home against Motherwell, Livingston have continued to gain a reputation for their glaring defensive issues. In fact, Sunday’s hosts have shipped 14 goals on their five-match winless run. Remarkably collecting just a single top-flight victory since way back on October 7th, Martindale’s side will certainly be bracing themselves for another monumental challenge this weekend.

As for the visitors, although Celtic might have a real battle on their hands in their bid to make more Premiership history this season, Brendan Rodgers’ men certainly entered March’s international break with a real flurry. Last seen heading into the fortnight interval with a 3-1 romp at home against St. Johnstone, the former Leicester boss has seen his squad win four of their previous five appearances across all competitions. Extending on their Scottish Cup adventure on March 10th as they secured an action-packed 4-2 victory against Livingston, the Hoops will know the importance of producing a repeat performance here. If Celtic are to extend their stay at the top of the table this weekend, attacking talisman Kyogo Furuhashi will have a leading role to play n Sunday lunchtime. Along with bagging back-to-back strikes prior to March’s international break, the Japan international has recorded six goals since opening up the New Year.
