Ross County vs Celtic
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 12 September 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Global Energy Stadium.
The Hoops are the reigning champions of the competition, and have easily been the best team in the country in the past several decades. Their ninth consecutive title the last season is a testament to that fact.
However, this year their path to the winners’ podium would not be that easy. Arch-rivals Rangers are determined to put an end to this domination, and have already raced to the top of the table with a six-point lead.
Still, it needs to be noted that Neil Lennon’s men are in the third spot with two games in hand.
They will be determined to secure the three points at any cost this weekend, and not let Rangers build their lead. It helps that the Hoops are taking on a team that was promoted to the top flight just a season before.
And to further tip the scales in their favor, Lennon’s men also do have a great h2h record against this rival.
By all means, expect a convincing Celtic win this weekend.

Ross County vs Celtic: Prediction
Lennon’s men are the undisputed best team in Scotland, and they have been so for the past several decades. On the other hand, their counterparts were inducted into the top flight just a season before.
As such, the Staggies are one of the weakest teams in the league at the moment, and they are also one of the least experienced.
And to pile on, the defending champions also do have a phenomenal h2h record against this foe. They are on a seven-game winning run against this team, and have recorded a 23-1 combined scorecard from these games.
And at this stadium, the guests have scored four or more goals in six of the former ten h2h clashes as well.
Suffice it to say that Celtic are massive favorites this weekend, and expect a dominating win at the Global Energy Stadium.
