Celtic vs Hibernian Prediction & Match Preview

Celtic vs Hibernian
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Sunday, 27 September 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Celtic Park.

The Hoops are the defending champions of the competition, and have been the best team in Scotland for the last several years. This year too they have made a solid start to their campaign. However, arch-rivals Rangers seem hell-bent on putting an end to the domination of Neil Lennon’s men.

The Teddy Bears have raced to the top of the table without losing a game so far, and they have also kept clean sheets in all but one match-up so far. This has put the Hoops under enormous pressure to keep up.

Be that as it may, they are up for the challenge.

Despite having a game in hand, they are just one point below the toppers, and also have scored the most number of goals in the process.

They also have the second-best defensive record in the league, and in fact barring one draw, they have a perfect winning record in the competition.

Finally, they also do have a great h2h record against this rival. By all means, expect a Celtic win this weekend.

Celtic vs Hibernian: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Lennon’s men recorded 43 of the former 52 overall wins.
  • They had scored a total of ten goals from the preceding three fixtures alone.
  • It’s been ten years since the guests have won at this stadium.
  • At this stadium, the hosts had recorded 24 of the former 26 overall wins.

Celtic vs Hibernian: Prediction

Jack Ross’s men were a mere mid-table team the last season, and they are pitted against the best team in the Premiership this Sunday. They have had a total of just two wins from their former five fixtures, and just five from their last eleven.

On top of that, they have also been struggling against this rival for the past several years, and particularly so at this stadium.

The Hoops who are furiously chasing the Rangers for the top-most spot in the table, will at no cost drop a point this game week. Expect a dominating win this Sunday by Celtic.
