Celtic vs Hibernian
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Wednesday, 6th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Celtic Park (Glasgow).
The best team in the league hosts a squad struggling to secure their future by climbing up from the relegation battle.
The Celts have been cruising through their Premiership campaign unopposed and it seems the team is kind of unstoppable right now. Their domination has reached such heights that only European competitions have posed some serious question for the team while at home.
Hibs have displayed a serious lack of consistency and it has hurt their ambitions for the season. They may be at the top of the relegation group, but a shift to the upper tier (the very next spot) is still five points away. And the distance may become higher once this match-day is done and dusted with.

Celtic vs Hibernian Prediction
Brendan Rodgers’s men have won eight of the last nine overall games, and kept clean sheets in seven of them. Also, the team won 16 of their last 17 home-ties (the loss came in the Europa League) and kept clean sheets in 13 of them. It’s assumed that the team will stick to their style and pull off another one of such victory.
The Celts have won both halves of eight of their twelve home-ties in the Premiership. Also, at this venue, they have recorded 21 wins in response to just two losses. Moreover, the Cabbage was winless in ten of their last 14 games on the road. These observations point to the inference that the team from Edinburgh is gearing up for another match with both halves in their kitty.
