Celtic have been the best team by miles in Scotland for the past many years, and they have the home advantage as well this Sunday.

Celtic vs Kilmarnock Prediction

Celtic had won 1-2 on the road the last match-day, against Aberdeen. It was in line with their overall domination of the Premiership, this season, as well as over the years. 

Meanwhile, Kilmarnock were defeated in front of their home crowd by Hibernian. The scoreline was 1-2, in favor of the guests. The failure to take advantage of their home status has raised serious questions about how they will fare against the best of the lot, Celtic, that too on the road.

As things stand, Celtic easily take the cake. They are the defending champions, and have been so, for the past several years. They are also at home, and have scored the most number of goals so far in the competition. In fact, disregarding Rangers, Celtic have scored more than double the number of goals than any other squad.

Importantly, at home, they have won 12 of their total league games, and this sole loss had come against Rangers. They have also won 23 of their past 25 overall matches, and 14 of their last 15 home matches. On the other hand, Kilmarnock were winless in 15 of their past 20 overall games, and were so in nine of their prior ten on the road.

Going on, Celtic are on a five-match winning run against this opponent, and have recorded 19 of the past 21 h2h wins. At this venue, since 1998, Kilmarnock have won just twice, and conceded three or more goals in 8 of their last 13 trips here. Consequentially, considering all these factors, expect a massive win for the hosts Celtic.
