Aberdeen vs Celtic Prediction
Aberdeen brought their dismal four-match winless run to a halt in fine fashion earlier this week by getting the better of Hamilton on the road with a thumping 3-1 scoreline. The hosts were much the better side in that latter matchup and scored all three goals in the opening forty-five minutes.
At the moment, the home team are level on points with Motherwell in the table and are third only on goal difference.
On the other hand, Celtic pulled off a whopping 5-0 win over Hearts in their respective clash at home. The visitors have secured maximum points from their past six clashes in the Premiership and have not been at the losing end since their 2-1 defeat to Rangers, back in late December.
It is also worth mentioning that Celtic have been branded as the best away side in the cluster, and there can be no surprises there. Impressively, the guests have stumbled just once on the road this season, and have picked up the win in eleven of their last thirteen outings.
In sharp contrast, Aberdeen have admitted defeat in their past two games here. Given that Celtic have also consistently secured the bragging rights in each of their previous nine trips to this venue, Aberdeen are left with no reason to have their hopes up in this one.
Furthermore, the visitors have had their scoring boots on, even on the road this term. In fact, they have found the back of the net thirty-five times from their outings in the top flight so far.
To make matters worse for the hosts, Celtic have scored two goals or more in each of their last eight h2h meetings here. As such, count on Celtic to win and to win big at that.
