While there may be an international break right around the corner, that doesn’t mean domestic football is going to be slowing down over the course of the next few days. There are plenty of games for fans across many nations to sink their teeth into and today, we’re going to take a look at a Scottish Premiership showdown between leaders Rangers and revitalsied Livingston.

Rangers

Rangers haven’t allowed the departure of Steven Gerrard to slow them down and instead, they’ve been ramping up their efforts to stay one step ahead of rivals Celtic in the title race. There are still a few improvements that fans will want to see before the end of the January window but right now, it’s hard to argue against them being the best team in Scotland by a considerable distance.

Team News

Ryan Kent is set to miss out here through suspension whereas Ianis Hagi is doubtful, with Nnamdi Ofoborh also absent.

Livingston

Livingston spent years trying to work their way back to the big time in Scottish football and after initially struggling at the start of the campaign, they’re beginning to piece things together. They don’t score bucket loads of goals which could prevent them from really kicking on towards the top six and beyond, but defensively, they’re strong enough to convince supporters they don’t have to fear relegation.

Team News

Daniel Barden has been ruled out of the game but aside from that, Livingston should have a clean bill of health for the short trip to Glasgow.

Factors to Consider

  • In their last meeting back in November, Rangers beat Livingston 3-1.
  • Rangers have won five and drawn one of their last six games.
  • Livingston have won four, drawn one and lost one of their last six games.
  • Rangers have scored 12 goals and conceded one in their last six games.
  • Livingston have scored seven goals and conceded three in their last six games.

Conclusion

While we may have seen four goals fly in back in November, something tells us this is going to be a more conservative affair at Ibrox. We can see Livingston setting up shop in an attempt to hit Rangers on the counter, whereas the hosts will attempt to show patience – something that has come back to bite them in recent times. Eventually, though, Rangers will overcome a stubborn Livingston to secure a 1-0 win.
