Kilmarnock vs Celtic Prediction

Kilmarnock has been subjected to back to back losses in their previous five fixtures in the Premiership.

Also, they have had trouble scoring as they have given away five clean sheets in the same period.

Their five-game losing streak has been ended with a 1-0 loss on the road to St. Mirren in their previous encounter.

With such hectic losses in their schedule, the Killie will have no use of their home ground advantage in the clash.

Apart from that, Kilmarnock has not been performing that well at home. They have recorded only four wins in their ten home matches so far in the campaign.

Meanwhile, Celtic had their second loss in twenty appearances against Rangers at home with a 1-2 score on the board in their previous encounter.

Besides that, Celtic has stayed as the second-best home team in the league having won seven of their nine trips in the road.

Hence, Celtic will have the opportunity to mark another win in their league schedule this season probably with a -1 handicap in the clash. Also, we can expect Celtic to score over 1.5 goals in the match.
