St Mirren vs Celtic
Scottish Premiership
Date: Wednesday, 16 September 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Simple Digital Arena, Paisley.

Season 2019/2020 hasn’t started well for Celtic FC and their fans. Elimination from UEFA Champions League qualifiers (lost to Ferencvaros 1-2 FT) is surely going to have big financial impact on the team, especially if they fail to reach Europa League group stages too.

When it comes to Scottish Premiership, the Bhoys have slipped only once in the opening five matches, winning 13 out of possible 15 points. They will face St Mirren at Simple Digital Arena this Wednesday night and anything besides victory would be marked as big failure.

St Mirren had a solid start but dropped in form lately. Away win is currently priced at 1.20 odds, which is hardly going to get us anywhere in terms of profit. Let’s take a deeper look into some other markets and possibilities.

St Mirren vs Celtic Head-to-head

The last time St Mirren caused problems for Celtic FC was all the way back in 2013 when they were unbeaten for two time straight. Bhoys have been very dominant in the last couple of years, having won last five head to head encounters.

The most recent one was played in March in Glasgow. Celtic took an easy win 5-0 FT. Leigh Griffiths was unstoppable, scoring three goals and providing an assist to Edouard.

St Mirren vs Celtic Prediction

Celtic FC faced St Mirren as visitors 20 times so far, and were victorious in 19 occasions. St Mirren barely avoided relegation in the last campaign, with their roster having minimal changes during the summer.

Current form of the home team is very questionable. St Mirren have collected only one point from the last three games, losing to St Johnstone and Hibernian, while match against Ross County ended without a winner. They are sitting in 7th place with seven points from six games.

Competition Neil Lennon has when it comes to strikers is absurd. Besides Griffiths and Edouard who have been at Celtic Park for years now, we have two new interesting players.

Polish striker Patryk Klimala scored two goals in the Premiership, while Swiss Albian Ajeti bagged three. It is hard to predict who is even going to start the match.

Still, we feel that backing Celtic to win and to keep a clean sheet is a no-brainer at 1.80.

St Mirren vs Celtic Bet Tips

  • Celtic to win & to keep clean sheet @ 1.80
  • Albian Ajeti to score at anytime @ 2.00.
