CELTIC v RANGERS BETTING PREVIEW
Celtic are runaway champions in the Scottish Premiership and they are now only two wins away from a domestic treble having also lifted the Scottish League Cup earlier this season. They currently sit 24 points clear of Aberdeen, with Rangers a further nine points back in third. The Bhoys are unbeaten in all domestic matches this weekend and their last defeat in all competitions came in November 2016, against Barcelona.
Rangers look set to finish third in the Premiership this season and they are unbeaten in their last eight games in all competitions (W5 D3), conceding just two goals in the process. The Gers followed up a superb 3-0 win at Aberdeen with a 2-0 win over Partick Thistle this past weekend. They are averaging two goals per game since Caixinha took charge and they have scored in three of their four meetings with the Hoops this season.
This will be the fifth meeting between the two sides this season and Celtic have been on top all of the way, with three wins and a draw against the Gers. Furthermore, they battled it out in the final last season with Rangers causing an upset after a 2-2 draw by winning out in a penalty shoot-out. Both teams have scored in three of the four previous Old Firm games this season.
The Hoops had looked set to be without the banned Scott Brown after the midfielder was sent off against Ross County last wtime out, and hisabsence would have been a major blow for Brendan Rodgers’ men. Rangers may well keep the faith with young defenders Myles Beerman and David Yates after the duo impressed in recent outings.
