Dundee United vs Celtic Prediction & Match Preview

Dundee United vs Celtic
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 22 August 2020
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Tannadice Park.

The Hoops have been the absolute best team in the country for the past several years, and have not even allowed their arch-rivals Rangers to have one season of domination during this while. They once again defended their title in style last year, recording a lead of 13 points over the Rangers.

In the process, they had also scored the most number of goals of all the teams in the competition – 89. Understand that, disregarding the 64 goals by Steven Gerrard’s men, the next best was just 42 goals by Hibernian.

They had also conceded the fewest number of goals – 19, and thus had a monstrous goal difference of +70 from just 30 fixtures.

Meanwhile, the Terrors have just been promoted to the top flight, and expectedly are one of the worst teams in the league at the moment. On top of that, they also do have an embarrassing h2h record against this opponent.

For the reasons, expect a dominating win by Celtic this weekend.

Dundee United vs Celtic: Prediction

Neil Lennon’s men are the reigning champions of the league, and they have been the best team in Scotland over the last several years. This time around, they are being firmly challenged by the Rangers in the title-race, and the Hoops are determined to secure the three points this weekend at any cost.

Things look in their favor as they are pitted against a newly-promoted team. Not just that, but the title-holders also do have an unbelievable h2h record against them.

In fact, they have recorded 56 of the last 60 overall h2h wins, and they have scored goals in plenty in almost all of their clashes over the years.

By all means, expect Celtic to post an easy win this weekend.
