Competition: Scottish Premiership
Market: Celtic win to nil
Odds: 10/11 @ Bet 365
Handed a golden chance to extend their buffer over Rangers, a high-flying Celtic will make the trip to Tynecastle on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, putting in another lackluster display and hit with a 1-0 defeat at home against St. Johnstone on Saturday afternoon, the mood around Tynecastle is the lowest it has been in recent memory. With only their goal difference keeping them from falling to the foot of the table, new boss Daniel Stendel finds his side tipped as a favorite to be hit with a shock relegation this season. A huge part of Hearts’ continued issues since opening the new campaign have come down to some rather glaring struggles in the final third. Remarkably, Wednesday’s hosts have scored just a single goal in almost 500 minutes of action and could be in for another testing night’s work in midweek.
As for the visitors, booking their spot in the knockout stage of this year’s Europa League with time to spare, Neil Lennon’s defending champions also hold a two-point buffer over title challengers Rangers. Putting in another dominant display and picking up a 2-0 win against Hibernian over the weekend, Celtic find themselves enjoying an eight-match winning run domestically and have continued to shine at the back. Picking up the League Cup thanks to a 1-0 win over Rangers last week, Wednesday’s guests have also recorded six clean sheets in their previous eight consecutive top-flight wins. Given the recent gulf in class between the two sides, we’re backing a comfortable away victory in midweek.
Bet: Celtic 10/11 to beat Hearts to nil in Wednesday’s Premiership showdown @ Bet 365
