Celtic vs Aberdeen
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Sunday, 31 July 2022
Kick-off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET
Venue: Celtic Park.
Round One of Scottish Premiership will kick-start this week as Celtic play host to Aberdeen. These two sides will be seen clashing at Celtic Park this Sunday in this new season.
Celtic is one of only five clubs in the world to have won over 100 trophies in their history. The club has won the Scottish league championship 52 times, most recently in the last season, the Scottish Cup 40 times and the Scottish League Cup 20 times. They passed out Rangers by 4 points, last season to claim the title.
The Hoops come into this game on the back of a 2-0 win over Dean Smith’s Norwich City in their most recent friendly game. The hosts have been preparing to defend their Scottish top flight title while displaying a series of positive results in the friendlies recently.
On the other side, Aberdeen nearly escaped the relegation zone last season. They have gained just 41 points from the 38 games, registering just 10 wins and 11 draws. But the side has been impressive in the League Cup, winning all 4 games played so far in Group A, with a 12-0 combined scorecard.
The visitors will go into the meeting after a 3-0 League Cup win as they beat Raith Rovers in their most recent fixture. A run of dependable showings from the Aberdeen defensive unit has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at one from their past 6 fixtures overall.
Celtic vs Aberdeen Head-to-head (h2h)
- Celtic remain undefeated to this rival since their last 17 h2hs.
- Their last 4 h2hs have seen scoring from both sides.
- The Hoops won the last 3 meetings in row scoring at least twice.
Celtic vs Aberdeen Prediction
Out of their 40 previous meetings, Celtic have won 33 matches, and that alone shows how dominant this side is over this rival. The Hoops are currently on the back of a 11-game unbeaten run, both home and away. At home, the defending champions won the last 5 h2h meet-ups in succession.
Meanwhile, Aberdeen won the last 3 away games in a row. But they have a poor track record over this foe over this years and they remain winless in their last 8 visits to Celtic Park.
By the looks of things, expect a victory for Celtic this Sunday.
