A Celtic win but it won’t be without it’s scares

Celtic had been on a seven game six game winless run before turning over Jablonec; that sort of stretch is almost unheard of for them. The midweek win will give the whole place a lift though and a home match against Dundee will  be seen as the perfect opportunity to get the first three points of the season. Their home form is good particularly in competitive matches as they’ve only lost one of their last 10 having scored a total of 21 goals. Not winning games week in week out though takes it’s toll and Dundee will make Celtic nervy at times; they’ve scored in their last 10 so will fancy their chances of notching at some point in the 90.

A match with plenty of goals

Given the first of our tips is for Celtic to win and both teams to score it should be of little surprise that we also think there will be at least three goals in the game. Celtic have exceeded the 3.5 mark in three of their last five with a total of 21 goals; that’s 4.2 goals per game. Dundee shatter the levels needed to meet 3.5 goals too; four of their past five have gone over the 3.5 cut off with 20 goals scored in those games.

Celtic win and a fair few goals

Our final tip is based on a couple of things we’ve already touched on. Firstly, we are expecting Celtic to win the match with their new found confidence and impressive home record. The next element of the bet is for there to be plenty of goals. As you will have found from the previous prediction the recent form of both Celtic and Dundee where goals are concerned. Both have averages around the four goals per game mark; breaking the 2.5 level for this should be a breeze.

Celtic vs Dundee: Celtic to get up and running

Celtic

After Rangers waltzed to the title last year Celtic have had to battle back from the dumps. It’s been a long hard road with their confidence taking a battering but a win in their recent Europa League qualifier will have been a welcome release of tension. All of the front three scored in that match with Joe Hart making his debut in goal so the squad should be bouncing.

Dundee

Dundee might be heavy underdogs for this game but they’ll be quietly confident of upsetting Celtic. They’re on a 10 game unbeaten run having won eight of those games. Goals have been raining in for them too; if they can grab an early goal then their hosts will get extremely twitchy. Charlie Adam is capable of unlocking a defence and Jason Cummings is on good form too; they could trouble the new keeper in Celtic’s goal.
