Celtic vs Dundee United Prediction & Match Preview

Celtic vs Dundee United
Scottish Premiership
Date: Wednesday, 30 December 2020
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: Celtic Park, Glasgow.

Even though Celtic and their fans have celebrated a lot of victories in the last month, it’s still very unlikely they will catch up with Glasgow Rangers at the top of Scottish Premiership. Many refuse to believe the title race is over this early, and probably the crucial match is going to be on 2nd January in first Old Firm Derby in 2021.

Meantime, Neil Lennon and his boys will have to deal with 5th placed Dundee United on Wednesday afternoon. Anything but a win here would be a massive disaster. The current odds on home win are 1.20, but keep in mind Tangerines have caused a lot of troubles to Rangers this season.

Celtic vs Dundee United Head-to-head

Celtic FC have defeated Dundee United in the last eight head to head clashes. They already met once this season at Tannadice Park. Game was decided by one single goal scored by Celtic’s Albian Ajeti in the 83rd minute.

As expected, all-time stats are going heavily in favour of Bhoys who have won 64 out of 85 games, while losing only five.

Dundee had 42 opportunities to beat Celtic FC in Glasgow but never succeeded. Instead they conceded 108 goals.

Celtic vs Dundee United Prediction

Participation in every single competition this season except FA Cup has turned into a disaster for Celtic FC. It’s been a very long time since they have been looking as powerless as nowadays. They were eliminated from UCL Qualifiers very early, while also failing to secure a spot in Europa League playoffs. On top of that, Ross County eliminated Bhoys from League Cup. Is FA Cup going to be the only trophy for Lennon’s squad this season?

In Premiership they have 12 victories, four draws and one loss, but their biggest rivals are simply making no mistakes. Dundee Utd are entering this clash with two draws and one win in the last two weeks. Even though the recent results haven’t been ideal, they are at least consistent when it comes to scoring. This said, we see good value in backing home win & BTTS bet.
