St. Mirren vs Celtic
Date: Wednesday, 10 February 2021
Kick-Off at 20.00 UK
Venue: The SMISA Stadium, Paisley.
St. Mirren and Celtic will take on each other for the second time in just ten days on Wednesday evening.
The Saints clinched a shocking 1-2 victory in late-January at Celtic Park via goals from Kristian Dennis and Ilkay Durmus.
Since then, St. Mirren fell 1-2 at home to Hibernian before returning to winning ways in a 2-0 victory over struggling Kilmarnock last weekend.
The champions bounced back from the mentioned defeat to the Saints by bagging six goals in back-to-back wins over Kilmarnock and Motherwell.
They are still miles away from Rangers who will claim the throne unless a miracle happens by the end of the season.
We can imagine how hard it is for the Bhoys to stay positive and play matches week in and week out while knowing they do not have a chance to challenge the bitter rivals who are too far away at the top of the standings. Nonetheless, they will, at least, be motivated to get revenge on St. Mirren here.
St. Mirren vs Celtic Head-to-head
Before the mentioned defeat in Glasgow, Celtic were the dominant force in this match-up. They won 36, drew 3, and lost 4 of 43 encounters against the Saints.
At least three goals were seen in each of the last four head to head matches.
The Bhoys were on a six-win streak against St. Mirren before losing 1-2 at home in late-January.
St. Mirren vs Celtic Prediction
The Saints have a great opportunity to end the regular campaign in the top half of the standings. It would be a massive achievement or the team that has been struggling to save the elite class status in the last several seasons.
They have also been playing very well of late. Jim Goodwin’s men scored ten goals in the last four league outings and we would not be surprised to see them on the scoresheet against the Bhoys who have kept their net untouched just twice in the last five matches.
The quality is obviously still on Celtic’s side and we can hardly back anything else but the away win as the pick here.
However, we are very tempted by the 3.10 odds offered by the bookmakers on the away win & both teams to score pick.
The Over 2.5 goals bet also has a great value at the 1.66 odds if we know that each of the last four H2H meetings between these two sides offered at least three goals.
