Rangers vs Celtic
Scottish Premiership

Kick-off at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Ibrox Stadium (Glasgow).

Premiership title could be at stake on Sunday as bitter city rivals Rangers and Celtic take on each other in another Old Firm derby in the 32nd round of the competition.

Celtic head into the tie three points clear off their arch enemies at the top of the standings. Another win in the city derby would move them six points away, providing them a great chance to regain the domestic crown.

Celtic have been the more consistent of the two teams in the last several months. They have won eleven and drawn one of the last twelve league outings.

The streak includes an impressive and dominant showing in the 3-0 thumping of Rangers exactly two months ago.

The Bhoys have been superb in the previous two rounds in particular, netting seven goals in the back-to-back wins over Livingston and Ross County.

Georgios Giakoumakis was in a special mood two weeks ago when he completed a hat-trick in the 4-0 drubbing of Ross County at Celtic Park.

Rangers, on the other side, had some unexpected slip-ups of late, including the draws to Ross County, Dundee United, and Motherwell, as well as the aforementioned Old Firm defeat.

Nonetheless, the team led by Giovanni van Bronckhorst should also come into this tie on a high after a streak of three successive league wins, a progress to the FA Cup semifinal, and the advancement to the UEFA Europa League quarterfinal.

Rangers vs Celtic Head-to-head

Before the mentioned 3-0 loss in early-February this year, Rangers had been on a streak of six victories and a draw in the previous seven Old Firm derbies beforehand.

Just one of the previous four head to head affairs between these two rivals provided goals at both ends.

Rangers have won each of the previous four derbies at Ibrox Stadium, shipping only one goal in the process.
