BookmakerBetfair

Celtic and St Mirren will face each other in the Scottish Premiership this week. The match between the Bhoys and the Buddies will take place at Celtic Park in Glasgow and is scheduled to kick off at 7:45pm UK time on Wednesday.

Celtic

Celtic won the Scottish Premiership title with relative ease last season, and it seems that the Hoops will clinch the championship again this campaign. Ange Postecoglou’s side are simply running away with the title at the moment, and it is hard to see their bitter Old Firm rivals Rangers stop them this season.

The Bhoys are at the top of the Scottish Premiership table at the moment with 58 points from 21 matches. Celtic are as many as nine points clear of second-placed and bitter Old Firm rivals Rangers. Heart of Midlothian in third have picked up 35 points from 21 matches.

Celtic will head into the match against St. Mirren at Celtic Park in the Scottish Premiership this week on the back of a 2-0 win against Kilmarnock in the semi-finals of the Scottish League Cup. It followed a 2-0 victory over Kilmarnock at Celtic Park in the Scottish Premiership.

Team News:

Sead Haksabanovic, Anthony Ralston, Stephen Welsh and James McCarthy all are available for Celtic against St. Mirren at Celtic Park in the Scottish Premiership this week. Greg Taylor is on the sidelines with a hamstring injury.

St Mirren

St Mirren are an established club in the Scottish Premiership and have been playing in the top flight of Scottish football since the 2018-19 season. They have finished 11th, 9th, 7th and 9th in their last four league campaigns. And it looks as though the Saints will finish in the top half of the table this campaign.

Stephen Robinson’s side are sixth in the Scottish Premiership table at the moment with 27 points from 20 matches. The Buddies are above the likes of Hibernian and St Johnstone in the table and are just eight points behind third-placed Heart of Midlothian.

St Mirren will head into the Scottish Premiership match against Celtic at Celtic Park on the back of a 1-0 defeat t0 Heart of Midlothian away from home in the league. It came after a 1-1 draw with Hearts at home.

Team News:

Greg Kiltie will start for St. Mirren, and so should Curtis Main and Alex Greive.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Celtic have lost 1 Scottish Premiership match all season.
  • Celtic have scored 65 goals in 21 Scottish Premiership matches so far this season.
  • St Mirren have won 7 and lost 7 Scottish Premiership games so far this campaign.
  • St Mirren have conceded 27 goals in 20 Scottish Premiership games so far this campaign.
  • Kyogo Furuhashi has scored 15 goals in 19 Scottish Premiership matches so far this campaign.

Conclusion

Celtic have been the best team in the Scottish Premiership so far this season and have the best squad in Scotland. It is really hard to see St.Mirren win against the Bhoys at Celtic Park this week. In fact, the visiting team may not even score a goal. The defending Scottish champions should win this match with ease.
