Celtic vs Hamilton
2018/19 Scottish Premiership
Date: Sunday, 26th August 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Celtic Park (Glasgow).

Celtic are working to regain their status as the best Scotland club, they will welcome Hamilton Academical on Sunday having gone through some rough patch in the past weeks.

Brendan Rodgers men have been in the shadows comparing their last season performance. They drew 1-1 in their last outing against Suduva in the first leg of Europa League final qualifying game.

Celtic are still having defensive issues as Suduva scored from a floated cross for Verbickas to just nudge it in. Besides the poor defense, Celtic were the superior team in that game. They will hope to bounce back from this mid-week disappointment when they are up against Hamilton.

Hamilton had longer days for the preparation of this game as they didn’t take part in the league Cup, having exited in the first stage. The Accies finished 3rd in the group that had newly promoted side Livingston and Ayr United.

Hamilton have attacking issues as seen in their first 2 games, the 4-1 defeat to Hearts and 1-0 win against Motherwell. They need to avoid dropping enough points to avoid panicking from the beginning of the season.

Celtic vs Hamilton: Head to Head

Celtic are on a 6-game winning streak against Hamilton, they haven’t lost to Hamilton since October 2014.

Celtic vs Hamilton: Prediction

Without any argument, Celtic are huge favorites for this clash, irrespective of their recent results. Though Hamilton had extra week of preparation, we don’t see them to be able to keep Celtic away.

Celtic defenders will also be hoping for a clean sheet and we are hoping to see that in this game. We are backing a huge win for Celtic with a clean sheet.
