Celtic vs Hearts Scottish Premiership Predictions by LeagueLane

Celtic vs Hearts
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Sunday, 25 August 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Celtic Park (Glasgow).

Celtic has been the best in the business in the country for quite a long time. They are perennial championship contenders and is on the same path this time around too. The team won both their opening two fixtures, and has already amassed 12 goals, and in return for just two.

To quote a stat, apart from Rangers, the most any group has scored so far in just three. To take on this absolute monster of a squad, Hearts comes visiting. The guests are winless in the competition at this point, and could not even register a win against a newly-promoted Ross County.

  • Celtic won the last five matches in a row.
  • Hearts conceded two or more goals in these five games.
  • At this venue, the hosts registered 16 wins from the last 18 meetings.

Celtic vs Hearts Prediction

The hosts are defending champions of the league and were unbeaten in 26 of their previous 28 match-ups. They have scored two or more goals in 12 of their last 15 fixtures and went invincible in 18 of their former 20 attempts in front of the home crowd. In addition, they also found the back of the net twice or more in 16 of their last 21 such appearances.

On the other hand, Hearts were winless in 14 of their prior 18 overall games, and in 16 of their last 22 on the road as well.

Importantly, Celtic won the last five h2h ties in a row and won 16 of the former 18 clashes at this venue too. They also managed to score two or more goals in ten of the last eleven such battles here.

As these observations strongly suggest, count on a huge win for the home team.
