Celtic vs Motherwell Predictions and Match Preview

Celtic vs Motherwell
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Sunday, 24th February 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Celtic Park (Glasgow).

For the moment, the clash of the Titans for Premiership fans. The current position of Motherwell in the league table notwithstanding, they remain the only team, along with Celtic, to have pulled in five wins from the last five fixtures. As these two take on each other, the hype is natural.

But beneath the surface, there’s something that misses the eye. Motherwell may be on a five-game winning streak, but it has to be mentioned that except for one of those victories, the other ones came against the bottom-most teams in league standings. All credit to them for taking advantage of a lucky schedule, but against Celtic, it might not amount to much.
