Celtic vs Aberdeen
Date: Sunday, 13 May 2018
Kick-Off at 12:30 UK / 13:30 CET
Venue: Celtic Park, Glasgow.
Aberdeen aim for the runners-up finish in the fourth successive campaign, but they’ll need a victory over the champions Celtic away in Glasgow to be certain to end the campaign on top of Rangers who are just one point below in third with a game against Hibernian upcoming on the final day.
The Hoops could not break a deadlock in mid-week’s home tie with Kilmarnock which ended the run of impressive back-to-back home wins over Rangers (9-0 in two games). With the Scottish Cup final against Motherwell coming next weekend, Brendan Rodgers will surely want to see his side raising the spirits with a victory over the second-placed opposition on Sunday.
The hosts will also want to finish the season on a high by extending the phenomenal streak of eight straight home games without conceding at all in all competitions.
Celtic vs Aberdeen: Head-to-head
- Aberdeen have never been an unpleasant rival to the Bhoys against whom thy lost 75 and won just 11 of 95 matches over the history.
- Celtic come into this off the back of ten straight wins over the Dons.
- Aberdeen scored just twice in last eight meetings with the Hoops.
Celtic vs Aberdeen: Prediction
The visitors are unbeaten in four league ties, but they head into this after playing back-to-back draws in low-scoring contest against Hibernian and Rangers, both at their Pittodrie Stadium. The obvious lack of the attacking creativity might be a huge issue for Derek Mcinnes whose men will have hard times netting past the rock-solid defensive line of Celtic’s.
Taking both the hoys’ home form and the H2H trend in matches with Aberdeen, we just have to take the 1.80 odds offered for the hosts to keep a clean sheet on the final day. Celtic to win should also be a banker bet at 1.40 given they won last ten matches against the Dons and given Rodgers will have no injury woes ahead of the clash.
