Celtic vs Hibernian Prediction

With their excellent historic showing against the Hibernian side, especially at the Celtic Park, the three points would in all probability go to the home side. Celtic side has had a change in their tactical formations compared to last season. Defensively they have been a little more compact and the defenders are keen to put offside traps to avoid unnecessary goals.

Hibernian is on excellent form this season. But their poor record at the Celtic Park and tendency to concede goals in counters will hurt them.

Expect a hard-fought win for the home team. Expect a lot of goals to be scored in the match.
