St. Johnstone vs Celtic Prediction & Match Preview

St. Johnstone vs Celtic
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Sunday, 14 February 2021
Kick-off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: McDiarmid Park.

The Hoops need to pull off a miracle from here on, if they are to secure a tenth straight title. They are currently placed second in the table, trailing 18 points behind arch-rivals Rangers.

While the defending champions do have a match in hand, it needs to be mentioned that the competition is about to enter its climatic stage. Neil Lennon’s men do not have much time to make up for lost time.

Meanwhile, the Saints have been an inconsistent bunch almost all through this campaign, and even at home they have not been able to deliver credible performances in 2020-21.

On top of that, the Hoops also have a phenomenal h2h record against this rival over the years.

Likely, expect Celtic to post the three points on the board this weekend.

St. Johnstone vs Celtic: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • They had also recorded 43 of the preceding 47 overall wins.
  • The guests are on a nine-game winning run.
  • The hosts had failed to score in the last seven clashes at this venue.

St. Johnstone vs Celtic Prediction

Lennon’s men are on a three-match winning run, and they had scored a total of ten goals in the process. They have also lost just once on the road in Premiership fixtures this whole season, and the defeat had come against toppers Rangers.

On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 11 of their former 15 overall match-ups, and they have also won just five times at home since March of 2020.

And most importantly, the Hoops have a spectacular h2h record against this foe over the past several years, and have scored in unbelievable numbers in the process.

As such, expect Celtic to register a convincing win this weekend.
