Hamilton Academical vs Celtic
Date: 8th April 2018, Sunday.
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: New Douglas Park (Hamilton).
The league leaders gets hosted by the 9th place Hamilton Academical for this weekend fixture amidst inconsistencies that are evidently clear from their last six games.
This team is currently in the 9th position in the league standing and has not been doing well of late. As it is now, Hamilton boys are defeated in their last 3 consecutive premiership league matches. Actually, this puts them in a 4 consecutive games winless run after drawing with Ross County earlier this year.
Hamilton’s inconsistence has drastically affected their performance in the league as well as dismantling its defensive and striking prowess in the recent past. However, this team has had a perfect coordination in their last 3 home games and they have been able to net a goal, win in two matches and draw in one.
Winning streaks have become a thing of the past for Celtic in their last 5 premiership games. They have surprisingly drawn against weaker premiership sides and this has placed them in a 10 points difference compared with the 2nd place Aberdeen. It is worth noting that Celtic are unable to score in all the 3 recent draws against St. Johnstone, Motherwell and Dundee Fc.
Their fans remains disappointed for the teams not being able to scoop the 3 points against Dundee Fc in a home game played in the midweek. Therefore, this means that Celtic may be required to up their game in this matchup to bring back their winning glory.

Hamilton Academical vs Celtic: Prediction
The inconsistency of the league leaders may recur in this away outing. However, they may not easily loose against the weaker home side. In my view, Celtic will strive to win this match in the efforts to widening the gap between then and the second place Aberdeen which have really been narrow in the recent past.
