Celtic vs Motherwell Prediction & Match Preview

Celtic vs Motherwell
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Sunday, 30 August 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Celtic Park.

The Hoops are the reigning champions of the competition, and they have been the best in Scotland for the last several years.

This time around though, arch-rivals Rangers are threatening to overthrow them from the top. And a combination of factors have led to the Rangers taking the top-most spot, while the title-holders are placed fourth in the table.

The reason being, they had drawn one of their games, and also have two matches in hand.

Pressure is slowly mounting on Neil Lennon’s men, and they could not afford to drop one more point. They are desperate for the win this weekend.

Considering their status as the best team in Scotland, along with their h2h domination over this opponent, and the recent struggles of the Steelmen – it’s inferred that Celtic will post a dominating win this Sunday.

Celtic vs Motherwell: Prediction

The Steelmen are on a seven-match winless run, and have failed to score goals in five of these fixtures. On the road, they are on an eight-fixture winless run, and have scored a total of one goal away from home since February.

On the other hand, their opposite number have been the overall best team in Scotland for the last several years, and are desperate at present to get to the top-most spot.

They also do have a phenomenal h2h record against this rival over the years, and particularly so at this ground.

In fact, they had recorded 50 of the previous 56 overall h2h wins, and are on a nine-match winning run at this ground against this rival, which saw them score a total of 32 goals.

Taking into account these stats, expect a dominating win by Celtic this Sunday.
