Celtic vs Hearts Match Preview
Celtic have lost on their consistency and they’ve only bounced to the winning ways after a disappointing Champions League exit in the hands of Cluj (4-5 on aggregate) with a 2-1 win over Dunfermline, where James Forrest found the extra-time winner. They now have a busy week on their hands in an attempt to build on the success.
Indeed, Bhoys host Hearts for their Matchday 3 clash just days after their Europa League Play-offs clash against AIK, surely hoping to put it all behind them and keep up their solid goalscoring records. They have bagged ten goals in their last three outings across competitions and this still promises the attacking line in a good mood.
Hearts have, on the other hand, beaten Motherwell (1-2) in League Cup and marked a return to the winning ways after a three-match winless streak, where they bagged just one point in first two league outings – despite proving themselves a very tough nut to crack along the way.
Jam have seen Aberdeen (3-2) bag all three points in a five-goal thriller, where they conceded two goals in the last ten minutes, and only shared the spoils with Ross County in a goalless draw in front of the home fans. They will now need more to deny Celtic and we don’t feel they have what it takes at this point.
We will thus back Celtic to their sixth consecutive win over Hearts but we don’t see them making it happen without conceding, as we now go for a Home win and a Yes on Both teams to score at 2/1 with bet365 which has caught the eye of many value seekers.
With that in mind, we do expect goals and we’ll go for a high-scoring clash at Celtic Park too, as we back Over 3.5 Goals FT at 8/13 with Unibet – which comes off as buying money for old rope especially to those keeping faith the visitors will get on the scoresheet too.
