Dundee United vs Celtic: Our top betting tips

Check out our match predictions for the big game.

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

A win to nil

Dundee United tend to struggle whenever they play against Celtic; they are without a win in their last 12 encounters with Celtic, and have won just once in their last 23 meetings. Dundee United have not done too well lately, they’ve lost three of their last five games. Celtic, on the other hand, are unbeaten in their last nine league games; they’ve won their last three, and seven of their last eight league games. Considering Celtic have conceded just once in their last four meetings with Dundee United, we’re backing Celtic to win to nil.

Someone will fail to score

We’ve mentioned that Dundee United have scored just once in their last four meetings with Celtic; they have had a lot of difficulty scoring against Celtic in recent meetings. Dundee United have failed to score in eight of their last 11 meetings with Celtic; they’ve scored just three goals in that 11 game stretch. It’s fair to point out that Celtic have had the best defence in the Premiership this season; they’ve conceded the least number of goals in the league, and have kept four clean sheets in their last seven league games. With this in mind, we believe at least one team will blank.

Celtic to notch the first goal

Finally, we’ll take a look at the first team to score market. Dundee United have conceded in five of their last six games; it’s worth noting that they’ve conceded first in four of those six games. Celtic have a tendency to start strong, and as a result, they usually draw first blood; Celtic have scored first in five of their last six games across all competitions. It’s been the same case in previous encounters between these teams; Celtic have scored the first goal in nine of their last 10 clashes with Dundee United. On that note, we believe the Bhoys will score first.

Dundee United vs Celtic: Meet the teams

Dundee United

Dundee United’s loss at Motherwell was their third in their last five games; they’ve now lost more games in their last five games than they did in their first 11. Thomas Courts will hope to improve his team’s poor recent form; he’ll look to Ian Harkes to lead the lads to victory today.

Celtic

Celtic have been on fire in the Premier League over the past couple of months; they’ve won seven of their last eight games, and have no losses in their last nine league games. The Bhoys will look to extend that streak to ten games today; Kyogo Furuhashi will be the man to keep an eye out for.
