Description: LIV Vs RNG Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Rangers take a runaway lead in the opening exchanges of the 2020-21 season.
Not only have they registered wins in all three of their opening matches in the Scottish Premiership 2020-21 but Rangers have been pinch perfect in these encounters. The side has gone onto hit seven goals and concede none in the process, a side which is clearly looking to upstage Celtic as champions this season.
While dethroning Celtic is not going to be easy for Rangers by any means, the current form the club has hit augurs well for them. At a time when Celtic have been refrained from taking to the pitch for flouting Coronavirus sanctions in place, Rangers have been doling out win after win as they look to make the most of Celtic’s absence in the league.
And when they step out in gameweek 4 to take on Livingston, it’s completely understandable why many have already declared Rangers as the winner from today’s upcoming showdown. Where they have been on a rampage, Livingston elsewhere are yet register a win in the competition with two defeats and one draw to their name.
LIV Vs RNG Dream11 Probable Winner
Although Livingston only had a point to show from their 2-2 draw the last time around, the result is set to have done a world of good to the club. The team not only managed to snap out of its two match losing spree with the result but also ended up registering its first point of the season with that display.
While that result will inculcate some kind of much yearned for confidence in the side, unfortunately that won’t be enough for Livingstone today. In a rut, the side will continue to be left bereft of a win after 90 minutes today with the side’s dreary defence treading over thin ice against a rampant Rangers attack.

Dream 11 Picks
Had it not been for Robby McCrorie the last time around, Livingston would once again have ended up stumbling their way to a defeat. In a match riddles with defensive mistakes, the goal-keeper emerged as the only source of solace with his error free goal-keeping helping the side pull off an unlikely 2-2 draw.
While all the plaudits have been rained down on Rangers’ attack, their backline has been equally worthy of all accolades. The defence might have been lowkey in its job but has worked assiduously in the backdrop to not let a single goal slip past the side in three encounters.
Such a stern and well disciplined backline deserved to grace the land of our Dream 11 framework today to see us opt for a trivalent from the side. We begin with the pick of the myriad James Tavernier with the rightback emerging as one of the most proficient names in the side at the moment with his three cleansheets being accompanied by 2 assists.
Borna Barisic has the one goal and one assist for the side to see him join up with James along Leon Balogun to complete out trivalent from the side.
Rangers have emerged as such a lethal and daunting side in the early exchanges of the competition due to their ability to keep the ball moving efficiently in the midfield. And ensuring that the ball has transitioned from defence to attack with seamless ease has been the duo of Ryan Jack and Joe Aribo with the two utilising their ball handling abilities for the side.
Amongst the three goals his side have managed to rifle there way to till now, Alan Forrest has manged to find one of them. It sees us make him a must have pick from the side along with Craig Sibbald, a tenacious player capable of stringing his way a slew of tackles and blocks.
Where Rangers have scored 7 in their first three matches, Livingston have ended up shipping seven. Livingston’s defensive gameplan has been non-existent, a side which has been nothing but a sitting duck with its defensive gameplan vanishing up in smoke.
This clash can get extremely embarrassing for Livingston with the duo we are opting from Rangers set to give them a throbbing headache. The partnership of Ryan Kent and Alfredo Morelos has the four goals in between it with both the player having foraged their way two goals till now.
Elsewhere, the home side’s top scorer with the top goals to his name, Lyndon Dukes will be our lone pick from Livingston.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His two goals and one assist make Alfredo a must have pick in the captaincy docket while Kent is the vice-captain.
