Aberdeen vs Celtic Match Preview
Celtic need only to avoid defeat at Pittodrie to make it eight Scottish league titles in a row and stay on course for the first ever ‘treble Treble’ in a major footballing nation.
The Hoops can put themselves beyond the reach of their Old Firm rivals Rangers with a draw in their sixth meeting with Aberdeen this term, which would render next Sunday’s trip to Ibrox academic for anything other than local bragging rights on the day.
Last weekend, Celtic moved to the very brink of retaining the crown when they won 1-0 at home to Kilmarnock, landing all three of the bets we recommended at odds of 10/11, 14/5 and 11/2 for the correct score as Jozo Simunovic scored the only goal in the 68th minute.
One point from three games is all Neil Lennon’s side require now for that eighth straight title, and then they can turn attention to winning the Scottish Cup Final against Hearts to complete the unprecedented feat of capturing all three domestic trophies in three successive campaigns.
Aberdeen played their part last weekend in ensuring the title ‘race’ continued for another six days as they lost 2-0 away to Rangers.
A similar scoreline could be in store for the Dons here as Celtic are fancied to wrap up the Premiership silverware in style courtesy of a ninth clean sheet in their last 10 games.
