Celtic vs Rangers – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Celtic are targeting their third straight league victory over Rangers in Sunday’s Old Firm Derby. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

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

Celtic to Win

Anything other than a win for Rangers in Sunday’s Old Firm Derby would almost certainly hand the Premiership title back to Celtic, though the Gers could struggle to match their rival’s energy in Glasgow. Rangers were involved in a taxing Europa League semi-final test in Germany against RB Leipzig on Thursday evening and Celtic – who are targeting their third derby victory of the campaign – can take advantage of the fatigue in their old enemy’s ranks.

Both Teams to Score

Old Firm Derbies are never short on incident and Celtic and Rangers traded goals in each of their last two encounters in league and cup in April. The Bhoys and the Gers have notched in 85% and 94% of their Premiership fixtures this term respectively and the rivals both possess enough firepower to impact the scoresheet in what should be another fiery derby on Sunday.

First Team to Score – Celtic

Rangers should be a little jaded on Sunday following their continental exploits in midweek and Celtic will be primed to take advantage of any sluggish start. The Hoops managed to find the net first in two of their last three encounters with their traditional foes and manager Ange Postecoglou will want his troops to explode out of the blocks again this weekend. With that in mind, a stake on the hosts to break the deadlock for the third time in four derbies is an appealing choice at the prices on offer.

Celtic vs Rangers Match Preview and Team News

Celtic

Defender Josip Juranovic is Celtic’s only major injury concern ahead of Sunday’s Old Firm Derby. The Bhoys are six points clear of Rangers at the summit of the Premiership and with only four matches left to contest, a victory at Celtic Park would all but confirm their 52nd domestic title.

Rangers

Filip Helander and Alfredo Morelos are both injured and won’t feature again this season, while Aaron Ramsey and Kemar Roofe’s fitness issues have given Rangers a major problem in midfield. To make matters worse, defender Leon Balogun is also out through suspension following his dismissal in last weekend’s 3-1 win at Motherwell.
