Dundee FC vs Celtic
Date: Wednesday, 31 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Dens Park (Dundee).
It’s a match of two extremes as third place Celtic travels to meet bottom side Dundee FC in round 11 of the Scottish Premiership.
It will take some effort to comeback from the position the home side are in now. The Dee have lost 9 of their 10 matches in the league and are going into this match as underdogs.
Jim McIntyre took over Dundee and his team have won just 1 game and conceded 23 goals from 10 games, in which they are second to none in the league. They equal St.Mirren on scoring the least goals as well (5).
Brendan Rodgers is on the black book of critics due to his team’s performance in Europe. The only hope for the former Liverpool manager is to win the Premiership.
The reigning champions are on a 3 game win streak. They only lost to toppers Hearts and Kilmarnock this season putting them just 6 points below the first position.
The Celts have one of the best defenses in the league as they conceded only 6 goals overall till now second only to Livingston and conceded 3 in away matches all those coming in the matches they lost.
With easier opponents coming up in the upcoming away matches of the likes of Motherwell and Hamilton, a win would give them the momentum to complete yet another title victory.
In the situation which Dundee are in, they are no match for Celtic.
