Hearts are already beginning to have a good looking season after being poor last term. They finished 6th below Kilmarnock, left League Cup in group stage and got knocked out in Scottish Cup quarter-finals.

They have started the season well having qualified for the next round of League Cup and will focus only on Premier League dye to lack of European football.

Hearts thrashed Hamilton 4-1 in their opening game and had 20 shots while 10 of the shots were on target.

Celtic kicked off the new season with a 3-1 win against Livingston at home. They drew 1-1 in the midweek Champions League game and that score is a scary one which will make the coach tough with choice of squad for this game as regards to Champions League reverse leg.

Celtic have already played 5 competitive games this season and this game will make it the 6th. They will try to balance things here and still be fresh for the Champions League game next week.

Hearts vs Celtic Head to Head

Celtic has the upper hand in trip recent clashes, they have lost just once in their last 5 games against Hearts and won 4 times.

The last 2 meetings between these teams was a back to back 3-1 win in favor of Celtic. Prior to the two games, Hearts defeated Celtic 4-0 at home in December 2017.

Hearts vs Celtic Prediction

The game would be a tough one to call, being that Celtic have won 79% of their away games since last 3 seasons. Hearts only lost once in their pre-season and have scored at least 4 goals in their last 3 games.

We are expecting goals on both sides and also more than 3 match goals. We are backing Celtic to win this one.
