Celtic to win to nil

Celtic have no losses in their last 14 meetings with Dundee United; they won 11 and drew three of those 14 games. It’s worth noting that Dundee United have had a lot of trouble scoring goals against Celtic; they did not score in their last two encounters, and they managed just one goal in their last five meetings with Celtic. Additionally, Dundee United are without a win in their last four games; they’ll be going up against a Celtic team that’s coming off back-to-back wins, and have conceded just one goal in their last three games. Celtic should win whilst keeping a clean sheet.

Someone will fail to score a goal

Celtic have had the best defense among all Scottish Premiership teams; they’ve kept the most clean sheets in all competitions this season. The Bhoys allowed just one goal in their last three games; at least one side failed to score in three of their last four games. It’s been the same case with meetings between these teams; we mentioned that Dundee United have struggled to score goals against Celtic. Both teams scored in just one of the last six clashes between Dundee United and Celtic; and on that note, at least one of these teams should blank.

Goals could be in short supply

Dundee United have not been a very high scoring team; they averaged just under 1 goal per game throughout the season. Dundee United’s games tend to be on the low-scoring side; seven of their last nine games went below the 2.5 goal margin. Similarly, Celtic have had their fair share of low-scoring games; three of their last four games went under 2.5. It’s also important to point out that recent meetings between these two have not produced a lot of goals; three of their last four encounters went under 2.5, with two of those games going under 1.5. With this in mind, this will likely be a low-scoring game.
