Ross County vs Celtic Prediction

Ross County had smelled a rare win the last match-day on the road, as they scored first against St. Mirren. However, the hosts equalized just before half time and fired in the winner just before final whistle. Meanwhile, Celtic defeated Livingston at the Celtic Park, with a 4-0 drubbing the previous game week.

As these two take on each other, consider how dominant Celtic are right now, and have been over the years. They are the reigning champions of the league, and at present, are on a nine-game winning run in overall fixtures.

They have also scored two or more goals in the last nine fixtures, and have lost just once in their previous 17 games on the road.

On the other hand, Ross County is a new addition to this competition, and are winless in their former eight overall matches. They have conceded two or more goals in their past seven games, and have won once in front of their home crowd in their previous five appearances.

Going on, consider how dominant Celtic have been in h2h clashes over the years. They are on a four-game winning run against this opponent with a 14-0 combined scorecard and have registered 15 of the former 17 h2h wins. Just a month back when these two met on the field, Ross County had lost 6-0.

Finally, take into account the competition provided by Rangers to get to the top of the table, and all these combine together to pick out Celtic as the favorite to post the three points in a stylish manner.
