Celtic vs St. Johnstone Scottish Premiership Predictions and Match Preview by LeagueLane

Celtic vs St. Johnstone
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 9 April 2022
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Celtic Park.

Celtic have been the absolute best team in the Premiership this season, and are deservedly placed at the top of the table. They have a lead of six points over the second-placed Rangers, who also happen to be the defending champions, and their arch-rivals.

Going on, the toppers have scored the most, as well as have conceded the least.

Meanwhile, St. Johnstone are one of the worst, and are placed second to last in the table. They have scored the least number of goals in the Scottish top flight, and they are also on a long series of winless games away from home.

And finally, they also have a poor h2h record against the toppers.

For the reasons, expect a win for Celtic this Saturday at their home.

  • They are on a five-fixture winning streak.
