Celtic vs Rangers
Date: Sunday, 31 March 2019
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK
Venue: Celtic Park, Glasgow
The biggest football match Scotland has to offer is happening this Sunday. It is time for Old Firm Derby which became a lot more unpredictable since Rangers returned to the top flight.
Celtic are still big favorites for the win the duel and defend the title, considering they have massive 10 points advantage on the table. There were some ups and downs for the Bhoys lately, but overall team has delivered decent results this season.
There were many concerns after the departure of Brendan Rodgers. Neil Lennon has done a solid work so far, and many will agree that team is having much better performances when it comes to defending under this Irish expert.
Celtic’s last defeat happened in late February, when they were eliminated from Europa League by Valencia. After that the Bhoys have four wins and a goalless draw against Aberdeen.
Bad news for the fans is that Edouard suffered a knock on training and his appearance against the big rivals is under a question mark.
As for their eternal rivals, Glasgow Rangers are going through a crisis right now. Team from Ibrox is now winless for four straight matches, while also getting eliminated from the cup by Aberdeen.
Celtic vs Rangers: Head-to-head
It is interesting to add that the last four meetings between these rivals were always won by the home team.
Rangers celebrated narrow 1-0 victory at Ibrox in late 2018, while the last three games at Celtic Park were easily won by the Bhoys.
Rangers conceded 10 goals in those duels.
Celtic vs Rangers: Prediction
Celtic are probably going to end Rangers’ hopes to contest the title with a win here. They have been more consistent throughout the whole season, and we don’t see how visitors can win a point or three here. Home win is our top bet at 1.75 odds.
In terms of the goals market, Celtic have kept a lot of clean sheets lately. We believe that is going to be the case on Sunday as well.
