Odsonne Edouard 5/6 to score anytime Aberdeen in Wednesday’s Scottish Premiership matchup

Competition: Scottish Premiership

Market: Odsonne Edouard to score anytime

Odds: 5/6 @ 888sport

Looking to make it five wins on the bounce in midweek, Celtic will welcome a struggling Aberdeen to Glasgow on Wednesday evening.

Starting with the hosts, while Celtic might have long since relinquished their Premiership crown, Neil Lennon’s side are at least enjoying a recent boost. Managing to pick themselves up a 2-1 victory against St. Johnstone last weekend, the Hoops have won each of their last four top-flight contests on the spin. Although they might still be seeking some stability, Lennon will be boosted by Odsonne Edouard’s free-scoring purple patch. Once again Celtic’s standout performer this season, the 23-year-old bagged himself a brace over the weekend and has been linked with a potential Premier League move come the summer. In fact, along with finding the net in his last six appearances on the bounce, the French starlet has also netted a remarkable 11 goals in as many outings.

As for the visitors, while Celtic might be enjoying a recent boost, Aberdeen are in the midst of an extended sluggish patch. Eventually having to settle for a 0-0 stalemate at home against St. Mirren over the weekend, the Reds are now in an uphill battle if they’re to secure themselves a European finish this year. Without a win in any of their last five Premiership contests, a run that stems back to January 23rd, the Dons also have just a single win to their name since Boxing Day. Facing what should be a tough trip to Glasgow in midweek, Head Coach Derek McInnes will have a real headache over his side’s continued issues in front of goal. Once again drawing a blank over the weekend, Aberdeen have now failed to record a single strike in any of their last five outings.
