Celtic odds: 1/12 (1.08) – 92.3%

Draw odds: 217/2 (9.5) – 10.5%

Livingston odds: 22/1 (23.0) – 4.3%

Celtic are the expected winners of this game with an astonishing probability of 92.3%. A 3-0 win for Celtic has a high chance of coming in for this match at 5/1 (6.0) – 16.7%, as Celtic won the reverse fixture by that scoreline. Another option to consider for this match would be Matt O'Riley to score anytime, which is has odds of 6/4 (2.5). O'Riley scored in the last meeting between these two teams and the midfielder is already Celtic's top scorer with nine goals scored alongside his eight assists.

Celtic vs Livingston Lineups

Livingston

Livingston were in action during the week and likely make changes to the side that lost to Aberdeen that day. Bruce Anderson was on the bench and now likely comes into the starting XI, while Stephen Kelly was another notable absentee who should come back in. Tom Parkes and Cristian Montano returned to action that day as well.

Predicted Line-Up:

George (GK), Nottingham, Obileye, Devlin, Penrice, Holt, Shinnie, Brandon, Nouble, Kelly, Anderson

Celtic

Celtic were not in action during the week and come into this one with only a handful of injuries to worry about. Liel Abada and James McCarthy continued to be sidelined and won't feature until either the end of the year of early January. Cameron Carter-Vickers is a doubt but should feature, while Daizen Maeda will big a miss with a knee injury, as he scored against Livingston back in September.

Predicted Line-Up:

Hart (GK), Johnston, Carter-Vickers, Scales, Taylor, O'Riley, McGregor, Turnbull, Johnston, Furuhashi, Palma

Player to Watch: Matt O'Riley

While most of the attention before the campaign started was on last season's Scottish Premiership top scorer, Kyogo Furuhashi, things have swiftly turned towards Matt O'Riley in midfield.

At just 23, the English-born has even managed to earn himself a cap for the Denmark national team this year. In 2023/24, O'Riley has racked up the most goal involvement in the Scottish top flight so far, putting together eight assists and nine goals. This has seen him be involved in almost a goal per game and average a goals per 90 minutes ratio of 0.40 with 39 shots in total. O'Riley also scored in the return fixture against Livingston in September.

Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.
