Celtic to win with a clean sheet
Celtic have dominated Aberdeen in the past, they are unbeaten in their last 15 meetings with Aberdeen. It’s worth noting that Aberdeen have beaten Celtic just once in their last 25 meetings; it’s even more impressive considering Celtic have won 21 of those 25 games. Aberdeen have also found it difficult to score goals against Celtic in the past; they’ve scored just twice in their last five meetings with Celtic. It’s worth mentioning that Aberdeen have not scored a single goal the last three times they visited Celtic; considering Celtic won those three games to nil, coupled with Aberdeen’s abysmal run this season, we believe that Celtic will win and keep a clean sheet in the process.
A Bhoys HT/FT win
Aberdeen have a tendency to start slow, and as a result, they usually concede first. Stephen Glass’ men have conceded first in eight of their last ten games, and they’ve lost seven of them. On the other hand, Celtic tend to start strong; they’ve scored the first goal in eight of their last ten games across all competitions. It’s fair to point out that it’s been the same case in meetings between these sides; as Celtic have drawn first blood in eight of their last ten meetings with Aberdeen. Considering Celtic have been winning at HT/FT in four of the last five meetings between these sides, we believe we’ll have the same outcome today.
Both teams will not score
For our final pick, we’ll take a look at the BTTS market. We’ve already pointed out that Aberdeen have not scored the last three times they visited Celtic; we should also mention that they’ve scored just one goal in their last seven matches at this stadium. Encounters between these sides have mostly been on the low-scoring side, especially at this stadium; at least one side has blanked seven of the last eight times Celtic hosted Aberdeen. Considering Aberdeen have not scored in their last two games, coupled with the fact that Celtic have kept five clean sheets in their last nine games, we believe at least one side will keep a clean sheet today.

Celtic vs Aberdeen: Meet the teams
Celtic’s nine match unbeaten run ended at Leverkusen on Thursday; they were knocked out of the Europa League due to that loss. The Bhoys will look to bounce back from that defeat with a win today. Jota perhaps being the man to keep an eye out for.
This is shaping up to be Aberdeen’s worst season since the 2012/13 season. After showing some signs of life, Stephen Glass’ men have succumbed to two consecutive losses. Aberdeen may fancy their chances against Celtic today though. Will Christian Ramirez help his team get all three points here?
