Odsonne Edouard 12/5 to score 2+ goals against Kilmarnock in Sunday’s Scottish Premiership showdown

Competition: Scottish Premiership

Market: Odsonne Edouard to score 2+ goals

Odds: 12/5 @ 888sport

Looking to keep the morale in their camp at a high after their thumping start to the 2020-21 campaign last weekend, Celtic will make the trip to Rugby Park on Sunday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, opening the new campaign with a worrying performance and appearing to still be showing some of the issues that haunted them last season, the mood in Kilmarnock’s camp still appears to be fragile. Hit with a 2-1 defeat away at Hibernian last weekend, Alex Dyer’s men also found themselves battling it out in the bottom half of the Premiership standings prior to last year’s campaign drew to an early finish. Eventually finishing last season sat down in eighth and entering the enforced break with a shock 1-0 loss away at Hamilton Academical, Kilmarnock have now failed to win any of their previous five top-flight appearances, collecting just a sole point. Still dealing with the defensive issues that were on display for large spells of last season, there is no doubt that Killie could be in for another overwhelming test this weekend.

As for the visitors, marking their return to competitive action and opening the new season with what turned out to be a thumping 5-1 romp at home against Hamilton, few across Scotland would expect anyone dethrone Celtic this year. Landing another domestic silverware sweep once again last season, Neil Lennon’s men also have one attacking talisman who opened the New Year with another statement. Linked with the likes of Arsenal and regarded to be the Premiership’s MVP, Player of the Year Odsonne Edouard marched towards the Golden Boot and opened his campaign with a hat-trick against Hamilton last weekend. With Celtic bagging a staggering 89 strikes before last year’s campaign was brought to an early halt, there is no doubt that the 22-year-old will be confident of enjoying another fruitful afternoon against a leaky Killie defence on Sunday afternoon.
