Aberdeen vs Celtic
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 4 May 2019
Kick-Off at 12:30 UK
Venue: Pittodrie Stadium, Aberdeen
Celtic travel to Pittodrie Stadium for their Premiership looking to secure another consecutive title as they sit nine points clear of 2nd placed Rangers with three games to play. They’ve snatched a 0-3 FA Cup win at this ground in April and now surely hope for a similar display against rivals struggling for consistency.
Hoops have beaten Kilmarnock with just a single goal to Nil and extended an eleven-game unbeaten streak across competitions, where they bagged seven more wins and three draws.
Neil Lennon’s men have been rock-solid at the back and will now also search for their sixth consecutive clean sheet, as bookies see them as heavy favourites to bag the points.
Aberdeen have a lot to play for themselves, though, as they sit 3rd placed and just three points clear of 4th placed Kilmarnock. They’ve suffered a comfortable 2-0 loss at Rangers last week and now have to hope for more despite struggles for consistency of success in front of the home crowd over the past couple of months.
Aberdeen vs Celtic: Head-to-head
Aberdeen have denied Celtic just once in the last five head-to-head clashes.
Celtic snatched a convincing 0-3 FA Cup win at this ground just under a month ago.
Hoops last suffered a loss at Pittodrie in February 2016, showing off as dominants since then.
Aberdeen vs Celtic: Prediction
We will now back Celtic to keep it up and we’ll go for an Away win to Nil here, which comes at 2.62 and looks like great value seeing the visitors rock-solid at the back and basing their success lately on such performances.
However, we don’t expect as many goals as Aberdeen have high stakes of their own to play for. With that in mind, we’re now also sticking our necks out for Under 2.5 Goals FT at 1.90 – hoping to see a tougher challenge from Derek McInnes’ men this time around which would be the fourth such occasion in five outings for both sides.
