Hibernian vs Celtic Prediction & Match Preview

Hibernian vs Celtic
Scotland Premiership
Date: Saturday, 21 November 2020
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: Easter Road Stadium, Edinburgh.

Celtic’s season has started going downhill right from the beginning. The Bhoys were eliminated from UCL Qualifiers in very early stages, while they are sitting in 2nd place in Premiership far away from Glasgow Rangers. Is this the year when they are getting dethroned?

Neil Lennon is under a lot of pressure, and another slip-up might be his last one. Celtic are paying a visit to the capital this Saturday, hoping to take all three points from Easter Road Stadium against Hibernian. Hosts have shown ability to cause troubles to top tier teams before, so this should be an exciting match. As expected, visitors are favorites at 1.55 odds.

Hibernian vs Celtic Head-to-head

These two opponents have already faced once in this new season. Celtic had no issues dispatching Hibs in Glasgow, winning the match 3-0 FT.

The Bhoys were victorious against this opponent in six out of the last eight meetings. They suffered eight losses in 45 matches at this stadium.

Four out of the last five meetings ended Over 2.5 goals or with both teams scoring at least one goal.

Hibernian vs Celtic Prediction

The current standings show Hibernian sitting in very high 4th place with 24 points from 13 games. That’s only five behind Celtic FC at the moment. Hibs were on decent run in October, having won duels against Kilmarnock and Hamilton Academical. One point was also won on the road against Ross County. That series was interrupted just before the international break with a 0-2 loss to Aberdeen. Squad was carried in numerous games by 23-years old striker Kevin Nisbet who scored seven goals in 11 appearances.

As for their opposition, Celtic have probably lost all chances in Europa League after humiliating 1-4 home loss to Sparta Prague on 5th November. The squad bounced back with a convincing 4-1 win in the Premiership though against Motherwell. Albian Ajeti is sitting at top of team’s charts when it comes to number of scored goals. We believe Bhoys will return home with all three points on Saturday, but also concede at least one goal.
