Celtic missed out on the opportunity to reduce the point between them and Hearts to 3. However, they allowed it stretch farther by 1 point as they lost away at Kilmarnock last week.
Celtic haven’t shown signs of serious title chase though it’s still early to conclude. They have won 50% of the fee games played in this Premiership, they have win 3, drawn once and lost twice.
This has kept them in 6th position with 10 points, also the squeezed out a win in the midweek league cup quarter-finals. This will lift up their morale as they look to bounce back from last week’s disappointment.
Aberdeen are closely following their host in the league table, they in 7th position with 9 points having won twice and drawn 3 times. They managed to win their last week game thanks to an early goal from wilson.
Except from the match day 4 that they lost 2-0 to Kilmarnock after Devin was sent of in the first half, they have looked good in other games. They are not a high scoring side but also have been guarding their back well with 5 goals scored and 5 goals conceded in the league.
Aberdeen’s games have always been a locked or tight one, it was evidence in the mid week league Cup quarter-finals. They played out goalless draw and finally won via 6-5 penalty shootout. It’s left to see if they can contain Celtic.
