Celtic have always been a tough team to take down, and even more so, in their own backyard. With the hosts showing no signs of slowing down whatsoever, a change in fortune is certainly not on the cards for Hearts this week.

Celtic vs Hearts Prediction

Celtic made light work of Motherwell in their last clash on the road by slotting no less than four unanswered goals past them. The hosts are on a seven-match winning streak in all competitions as we speak, and have admitted defeat just once in their previous ten games on the trot.

With a whopping total of sixty-seven points to their name, the home team are currently seven points ahead of second-placed Rangers.

On the other hand, Hearts are yet to show any signs of promise in the Premiership. Miserably, they are without a win in their past two clashes in the top flight, the most recent of which saw them lose 3-2 to Kilmarnock.

To make matters worse, the 2-1 win over Hibernian, way back in September, was the visitors’ last and only taste of success on the road. In sharp contrast, Celtic have picked up the win in all but one of their previous twelve games at home.

Taking into account that Celtic have also secured the bragging rights in each of their past eight meetings with this foe here, the odds are certainly stacked against Hearts in this one.

Furthermore, goals have always been a given whenever Celtic line up on home soil. Impressively, the hosts have racked up thirty-seven goals up till now, which is five more than any other side in the cluster.

To top it off, all of their past five h2h encounters here have been high scoring affairs. Hence, it is certainly safe to count on Celtic to win and to do so with over 2.5 goals on the final scorecards.
