Hibernian vs Celtic Match Preview
Celtic travel to Edinburgh for their Premiership clash at Hibernian on the back of FA Cup success, where they bagged a convincing 0-3 win in Aberdeen with goals from James Forrest, Odsonne Edouard, and Tom Rogic. They’ve thus extended their great streak and now hope to build on the 11-point gap at the top of the league table with points at Easter Road.
Bhoys have been rock-solid at the back and conceded just one goal in their last seven outings, bagging five wins along the way and only sharing the spoils with Aberdeen (0-0 in Premiership) and Livingston (0-0). Neil Lennon will now want more of the same and we expect them very motivated to impress again.
Hibernian have plans of their own as they sit just six points behind 3rd placed Kilmarnock and have seen great confidence boosters of their own since the FA Cup loss to Celtic (0-2) in early March. They’ve bagged three wins in their last four outings with just a goalless draw against Killie also on the records, which will have them in a great mood.
Hibs beat Hearts (1-2) in early April with a brace from Daryl Horgan completing the comeback and although we’ve seen them slip up in front of the home crowd lately, we still expect them to put on a great challenge before the Scottish dominants.
We still don’t see them snatching any points on the day and we’ll now stick our necks out for Celtic to secure the points with a confident defensive display, where an Away win to Nil comes at 11/8 with bet365.
We don’t expect a very one-sided clash, though, and Hibernian have proven themselves a tough nut to crack on many occasions here. This has us going for a low-scoring clash and Under 2.5 Goals FT at Evens with bet365, which has been rated buying money for old rope by many in the know as well.
