Celtic vs Hearts – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Celtic have already beaten Hearts three times in league and cup this season ahead of the clubs’ latest clash on Saturday. Read our top three predictions for this week’s fixture below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Celtic to Win and Both Teams to Score

Celtic have already conquered Hearts on three separate occasions this season with victories secured over the Jambos in the league (twice) and cup. With their dominance in this fixture providing impetus, the Hoops are favoured to push for glory again on Saturday, though in-form Hearts could net a consolation. The visitors are unbeaten in 12 games, so expect them to make life difficult for their title-chasing hosts in Glasgow.

Over 2.5 Goals

Hearts have been involved in a number of exciting tussles in recent weeks and their style of play under adventurous coach Robbie Neilson is conducive to high-scoring matches. Indeed, five of the Jambos’ last eight fixtures have produced over 2.5 goals, while it’s also worth noting that five of their last six encounters with Celtic also saw the net rattle three or more times. Expect more thrills and spills in Glasgow on Saturday.

Kyogo Furuhashi to Score Anytime

Japanese attacker Kyogo Furuhashi has been a massive hit at Celtic this season and the 27-year-old has proved a particularly potent weapon against Hearts this term. Furuhashi managed to find the net in two of the Hoops’ three meetings with their Edinburgh-based opponents this term and the ex-Vissel Kobe forward can make his mark against the same backline on Saturday.

Celtic vs Hearts Match Preview and Team News

Celtic

Defender Josip Juranovic is nursing a knock, though he should be fit enough to feature on Saturday. Elsewhere, injuries are few and far between for Celtic as the campaign’s climax approaches. The Hoops draw with Rangers in last week’s Glasgow Derby all but sealed the Scottish title for Ange Postecoglou’s side.

Hearts

Hearts are still without long-term absentee Bani Baningime, while doubts remain over the availability of defensive trio Craig Halkett, John Souttar and Michael Smith. Hearts are certain to finish in third spot this season having amassed an impressive 61 points from 35 matches so far.
