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

Rangers will avoid defeat

These are two teams that do not lose often; both teams have no losses in their last 13 respective games across all competitions. Rangers have lost just once in the Premiership this season; as a matter of fact, they have no losses in their last 21 league games. Similarly, Celtic are unbeaten in their last 17 league games, so this looks like an even contest. The thing is, Rangers have had Celtic’s number recently; they’ve won the last three clashes between these two, and have no losses in their last seven encounters, with six wins and a draw. For this reason, we’re leaning towards The Gers by picking them to win or draw.

Both sides will score

Celtic and Rangers have been the highest scoring teams in the Premiership this season; they’ve both been very consistent when it comes to finding the back of the net. Celtic have scored in their last five, and 16 of their last 17 games in all competitions. In like manner, Rangers haven’t had any difficulty finding the net; they’ve done so in all of their last 22 games across all competitions. Considering how consistently both teams have scored throughout the season, both teams should find the net.

Backing under 2.5

We’ve pointed out that both teams are the highest scoring teams in the league; conversely, they’ve both had the best defences too. Celtic have conceded just 13 goals in 23 league games, while Rangers have conceded 18 times. It’s worth noting that encounters between these sides tend to be on the low-scoring side; five of their last six clashes went below the 2.5 goal mark. Also, seven of Rangers’ last nine games also went below this line; with this in mind, this will likely be a low-scoring affair, with 1:1 being a probable score line.

Celtic vs Rangers: Team News

Celtic

This game could potentially decide who wins the Scottish Premiership this season; Celtic are just two points behind Rangers, they will take the top spot for the first time this season if they win today. Ange Postecoglou’s men will be eyeing their sixth consecutive win in all competitions; it’s worth keeping an eye on Kyogo Furuhashi.

Rangers

Rangers’ lead at the top of the Premiership table was cut to two points due to a draw at Ross County last weekend; they can go five points clear if they win this game. The Gers will look to extend their unbeaten run to 14 games as they take on their biggest rivals; will Alfredo Morelos help his side maintain the top spot?
