Kilmarnock vs Celtic Prediction & Match Preview

Kilmarnock vs Celtic
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Tuesday, 2 February 2021
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Rugby Park.

The Hoops have won just once in the past five match-days, and it almost seems as if their title-defense is over. They are lagging by a whopping 23 points behind toppers and arch-rivals, Rangers.

However, they still cannot throw in the towel. The team needs to keep fighting till the very end, and this upcoming match-up appears to be an opportunity to post some easy points on the board.

The reason being – Killie are the only team in the whole league to have lost their last three straight Premiership fixtures, and also their only win in the past five league games had come against the dead-last placed Hamilton.

Going on, Neil Lennon’s men also have a great h2h record against this rival over the years.

As such, expect Celtic to deliver a winning performance this Tuesday.

Lennon’s men are the defending champions of the competition, and are desperate at the moment as they are being thoroughly eclipsed by arch-rivals Rangers.

The title-holders need some urgent confidence boost, and this upcoming match-up against Killie is the perfect opportunity to secure such a win.
