Celtic vs Hibernian Match Preview

Celtic host Hibernian for their Matchday 18 clash just days after seeing a winning streak of 12 ended by Cluj (2-0) in their Europa League clash which held no great stakes for Neil Lennon’s men but now still has them looking to bounce to the winning ways. They’ve been furious beforehand and sit two points clear of 2nd placed Rangers, which should have them just as motivated to do so on Sunday.

Bhoys have been very convincing at home ground and extended a 13-match winning streak since August, despite conceding late goals against Rennes (3-1) and Hamilton Academical (2-1) in their last two outings. They will now want more of the same and come rated heavy favourites to make it happen.

Hibernian haven’t snatched a win at this ground in almost a decade and we have seen them struggling for consistency on the road, which will be just as worrying. They saw a 2-1 loss at Ross County on their last trip and while the visitors bounced with a 3-0 win over Aberdeen last week, building on it at Celtic Park will be no easy task.

Hibs conceded a high total of 17 goals in their last nine away games and such troubles obviously kept them well behind the top 2. They will have to battle for a top 6 spot and with chasers piling up, we expect to see them just as motivated to find the net and cause an upset now.

We don’t see them making it happen and we’ll now rather stick with Celtic to turn an exciting contest their way, as we go for a Home win and a Yes on Both teams to score at 8/5 with BetVictor which has caught the eye of many in the know.

We thus expect goals and with hope we’re in for in-form attacking lines on both ends, we’ll go for Over 3.5 Goals FT at Evens with bet365. We’ve seen seven goals in their League Cup clash back in early November and we now hope for similar thrills in Glasgow.
