Celtic vs Rangers Prediction & Match Preview

Celtic vs Rangers
Scottish Premiership
Date: Saturday, 17 October 2020
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Celtic Park.

This fixture in all probability could be the title-decider. The Hoops have been dominating the Premiership for the last several decades, and the Teddy Bears have had enough of it. They are absolutely determined to put an end to it.

So far, both teams have been in breathtaking form, that there’s a huge gap in quality between the rest of the league and these two squads.

Considering the huge history of rivalry between these teams, the phenomenal offensive potential either squad possesses, and with this encounter being tipped as the potential ‘final’ of the Scottish top flight – expect a fierce encounter filled with goals.

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

  • The latest encounter saw Steven Gerrard’s men win 1-2 on the road.

  • Four of the last five clashes at this ground had three or more goals.

Celtic vs Rangers: Prediction

The defending champions are on an eight-game winning run, and they had also won 13 of their preceding 15 overall fixtures. In the process, they had also scored two or more goals in 10 of their last 15 match-ups.

At home, the team has won every single game in the past twelve-month period, barring one single game against the Rangers, and two European match-ups. And they had also scored three or more goals in ten of their previous thirteen appearances at this venue.

On the other hand, their counterparts are on a 12-game unbeaten run, and they had remained so in 17 of their former 18 fixtures. During the stretch they had also scored two or more goals in 15 of their last 18 overall games.

And on the road, they had scored a total of 18 goals from their past five trips alone. Suffice it to say that both teams are in unbelievable form at the moment, and with the title on the line, we can count on them to bring their A-game to the pitch.

As such, expect a goal-fest this weekend.
