Motherwell vs Celtic
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Sunday, 8 November 2020
Kick-off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Fir Park.
The Hoops are the reigning champions of the competition, and have been the best team in Scotland for over the past several decades.
However, they are being furiously challenged by arch-rivals Rangers for the title this time around, and the Teddy Bears have also climbed to the top-most spot, with a lead of nine points over Neil Lennon’s men.
Expectedly this has made the Hoops desperate, and with the kind of talent they possess, they are an extremely dangerous opponent. And particularly so for the Steelmen, who have a terrible h2h record against this team.
As such, expect a Celtic win this Sunday.
Motherwell vs Celtic: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Lennon’s men are on a six-game winning run against this rival.

Motherwell vs Celtic: Prediction
Stephen Robinson’s men were winless in 11 of their last 16 overall games, and they remained so in five of their former eight appearances at home.
On the other hand, their counterparts had won nine of their last fourteen overall match-ups, and they have not lost a single fixture away from home in the whole of 2020.
Going on, they also do have a terrific h2h record over the years against this rival. In fact, they are on a six-fixture winning run against this opponent, and had recorded an unbelievable 57 of the last 64 overall h2h wins.
Moreover, with the kind of form the Rangers are showing, the defending champions would be hell-bent on securing a win this weekend.
By all means, expect a huge victory for Celtic at the Fir Park.
