Livingston vs Aberdeen Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Livingston vs Aberdeen lineups and team news for Saturday’s Premiership meeting below.

Livingston

Livingston had a calm summer. Only 2-3 of the more valuable players left but they have been replaced well already. This stability helped Livi to do well in the recent League Cup group stage. With 3 wins and 1 defeat on penalties Livingston progressed without any fuss. They also kept 3 clean sheets in those 4 matches.

Pittman and De Lucas might not be fit to start. Both had been dealing with injuries this off-season and are behind with their preparation.

Predicted Lineup for Livingston: George (GK), Devlin, Parkes, Obileye, Penrice – Montano, Holt, Shinnie, Anderson, Stephen Kelly & Nouble

Aberdeen

Aberdeen had a strong end to last season and they were very close to securing a top-3 finish in the end. The positive mood was transported into the transfer activity with the Dons losing 1-2 decent players but beefing up their squad with some quality signings too. Dutch duo Roos and Besuijen arrive and both are expected to be involved straight away.

Aberdeen's pre-season saw them win 3 out of 4 friendlies. All of those were against modest teams though.

Predicted Lineup for Aberdeen: Roos (GK), Devlin, MacDonald, Stewart, Polvara, Ramadani, Clarkson, Shinnie, Hayes, Miovski & Besuijne

Starting Lineups

Official lineups are usually released approximately one hour before kick-off.

Player to Watch: Bojan Musovski

Aberdeen's main striker Musovski netted 16 league goals in his first season in Scottish football. The North Macedonian will certainly target better returns this year as he has settled well at the club. Musovski scored 7 goals in the first 2 months of last season and we back him to make a fast start to the new campaign too.
