Celtic to claim the points
Hearts have done a great job lately; they are coming off four consecutive wins in all competitions, and are third on the Premiership table. The problem is, they are going up against one of the hottest teams in the league. Celtic have won their last three, and 10 of their last 11 games across all competitions. As a matter of fact, The Bhoys have lost just once in their last 21 games. Also, Celtic have dominated Hearts in the past; they’ve won 17 of the last 20 encounters between these sides. For this reason, we’re making the prediction that Celtic will take all three points from this game.
Both sides will score
Hearts have scored a lot of goals recently, they’ve found the net 10 times in their last four games alone. Just like Hearts, Celtic have not had much trouble scoring goals; as they’ve done so in their last three, and 14 of their last 15 games across all competitions. Celtic’s games have not been one-sided in terms of scoring goals; both teams have scored in four of their last six games. In the same vein, encounters between these two have produced a lot of goals; as both teams have found the back of the net in three of their last four clashes. On that note, we believe that both teams will score here.
Let there be goals
These are some of the highest-scoring teams in the Premiership; only Celtic and Rangers have scored more goals than Hearts this season. Celtic’s games have mostly been on the high scoring side; four of their last six games went over 2.5. It’s fair to note that meetings between these two tend to be high-scoring as well; eight of their last 10 clashes went above the 2.5 goal mark. Considering Hearts have scored 10 goals in their last four games, this should be a high scoring affair.
The best odds for Hearts vs Celtic
Hearts vs Celtic: Team Overview
Hearts are coming off a comfortable 5:0 victory in the Scottish Cup; they’ve now won four games in a row, across all competitions. The Jam Tarts will hope to extend that winning streak to five games as Celtic come visiting; it’ll be interesting to see how they’ll fare with Liam Boyce leading the attack.
Just like Hearts, Celtic have enjoyed a good run of form over the past few months; they’ve won three in a row, and are unbeaten in their last 11 games. The Bhoys will have a tricky fixture ahead of them as they take on an in-form Hearts side; will Kyogo Furuhashi lead the lads to victory?
