Celtic vs Hearts Match Preview

Celtic top the league table and sit seven points in the clear as they host Hearts for their Matchday 26 clash on Wednesday, looking to build on a seven-match winning streak across competitions – having rediscovered their form in the final third and enjoying great team spirits at the moment.

Bhoys bagged 22 goals on those seven occasions and with comfortable wins over Motherwell (0-4) and Clyde (0-3) seen last week, it’s hard to believe in an upset now either. Neil Lennon will want to warn against complacency against the rock-bottomed rivals, though, as they proved tougher to beat lately.

Indeed, Hearts come into the match with a narrow 0-1 win over Falkirk in FA Cup and they bounce to the winning ways after a thriller loss to Kilmarnock (2-3), which left them rock-bottomed with just 18 points to their name. This was their only loss in seven games, though, and Daniel Stendel has obviously made an impact.

Jam beat Airdrieonians (5-0) and Rangers (2-1) since late December and held off Aberdeen (1-1), Ross County (0-0), and St Johnstone (3-3) along the way. However, they have struggled to break the deadlock over the weekend and we feel they still have to prove they’re over their goalscoring consistency on the road.

We thus hope to see Celtic prove themselves a tough defensive line for the visitors to break as well, going for a Home win to Nil at 31/40 with BetVictor as it feels like the best approach to the fixture despite the great difference in ambition at this point.

As said, Hearts have been tougher to beat more recently and with that in mind, we are hoping for a challenge now. We’ll thus also go for a low-scoring occasion at Celtic Park and we’ll back Under 2.5 Goals FT, which comes at 7/5 with Paddy Power.
