Rangers vs Celtic
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Sunday, 12th May 2019
Kick-off at 12.00 UK/ 13.00 CET
Venue: Ibrox Stadium (Glasgow).
Celtic has ensured the top spot in the Championship Group, and thus a direct entry into the Champions League. With two games to go, the team has a nine-point lead over the next spot. They have also scored the second-most number of goals and conceded the least.
Their last fixture in the group is against Hearts, who’s also their opponent for the Scottish Cup final. As such, Celtic will look to put on a good showing, which would help them in having good momentum before the domestic cup.
Rangers, likewise Celtic, has ensured the second position in the table and has locked in their participation in the Europa. Also, as of now, no team has a better record in recent games, with the team going on a winning streak of five games.

Rangers vs Celtic Prediction
Celtic has overwhelmingly dominated Rangers for quite so long. They recorded 13 of the last 14 h2h wins and won five of the last six clashes at this venue as well. Celtic is also the topper of the league, with a nine-point lead over Rangers. They have already ensured the top spot, and thus entry into Champions League. They have three games remaining in the season – two in the Championship Group, and the last one – the Scottish Cup final against Hearts.
As such, it’s important for the team to keep their levels high. In addition, Rangers has already locked in the second spot and has no actual incentive to go after a win, rather than pride.
But the team feels as if they are ready to challenge Celtic in the next season, and a good showing against them this Sunday will hugely help them to build some confidence.
Do consider that Rangers won their last five fixtures in a row, scoring two or more goals in five of their last six ties, and three or more goals in three of their last five.
So, as things stand, we should expect Celtic to not lose the tie, and goals from either end of the pitch as well.
