Dundee United vs Livingston Match Analysis and Prediction

Dundee United will host Livingston at Tannadice on Sunday, looking to build on recording one of their most famous results in recent memory earlier this week with kickoff at 5 pm.

Although they were given one of the toughest Europa League draws, Dundee United likely went into their fixture with AZ Alkmaar on Thursday evening with more hope than expectation.

Nevertheless, the Tangerines rose to the occasion to claim a 1-0 victory over the Dutch, Glenn Middleton scoring a delightful goal in the second half. The Eredivisie outfit remains a favourites to progress from the tie with the reverse fixture in the Netherlands. Still, Jack Ross will be delighted that his side have allowed themselves to cause a notable shock.

That result came on the back of Dundee United drawing 1-1 with Kilmarnock last weekend, their opponents netting a last-gasp leveller after Ian Harkes was sent off in the second half.

Livingston will take encouragement from their opening fixture with Rangers, despite eventually losing out to the Europa League runners-up. The Lions led 1-0 for much of the match before conceding two goals quickly to lose 2-1.

Manager David Martindale will look for his side to get off the mark on Saturday when they travel to face opponents they regard as rivals for mid-table positions.
