Motherwell vs Celtic Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Celts are unbeaten in their past 16 overall matches since 2016.

Motherwell vs Celtic Prediction

Motherwell will be hosting after a defeat on the road in their previous match. They lost to the likes of Livingston with a 1-0 score on the board. It was their third winless game within the last five league fixtures overall.

Celtic has won in all but one clash in their past sixteen matches in the campaign this season. With such a profound form, they are one of the invincible teams in the Premiership. The Hoops had their previous encounter on the road against Hamilton. It ended in favor of the Celts with a 1-4 scoreline.

From this, we can say that the host does not have much chance in the clash. Despite their home ground advantage, the Well has been winless in their last three home matches. Also, Stephen Robinson and his team have won only six of their 12 home fixtures in the campaign.

On the other hand, Celtic is on a six-game winning streak in their away games. Also, the visitor is the best away team in the campaign with just one loss in the 12 away fixtures until now. They previously lost in the league away from home in October 2019 against Livingston.

With their overall league dominance and strong away streak, Celtic will be the best option to be the favorites to win in the league. Since Rangers have lost to Hearts in an earlier match, it has given an advantage for the Hoops in the run for the Premiership title. So we can expect Neil Lennon’s boys to give all in for the win.

Hence, the punters can have a safe bet on the full-time result over Celtic. Also, with Odsonne Edouard in scoring form along with others, we can probably expect Celtic to score over 1.5 goals in the game.
