Aberdeen vs Celtic Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Aberdeen are back in league action after more than 10 days, but the team picked up a 1-0 win over Hibernian in the recent outing. Gary Mackay-Steven came up with the only goal in the 38th minute, as Hibernian kept pace with Celtic at the top of the SPL. Meanwhile, Brendan Rodgers saw his Celtic team recover from a 3-0 humiliation against Bayern Munich to get a 4-2 win over Hibernian in the League Cup semi-finals. A brace from Mikael Lustig and Mousa Dembele was sufficient for Celtic in this game. The recent league outing saw Celtic get a narrow 1-0 win over Dundee at Celtic Park. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Celtic have a strong record against Aberdeen after winning the last six in all competitions. Recent meetings between the two clubs has produced under 2.5 goals only twice in the last six. However, this is a game between two of the meanest defences in the division. Celtic and Aberdeen have conceded a combined 11 goals in their 18 league games this season. Even with Celtic being on a strong offensive footing, I would go with this game to produce less than 2.5 goals. Leigh Griffiths has a strong record against Aberdeen after failing to score only once in the last six appearances against this club. His overall record against Aberdeen stands at seven goals in 17 league appearances. Since moving to Celtic, his record against Aberdeen is extremely good. I would back Leigh Griffiths to score anytime in the game.

Aberdeen Preview

Aberdeen have once again rediscovered the winning touch after the team went through a couple of surprise results – against Kilmarnock and Motherwell. Three consecutive wins and clean sheets mark a return to the usual self for Aberdeen, who are the second best defence in the SPL with just six goals conceded in the opening nine matches. Incidentally, Celtic have the best record after conceding five goals. Unsurprisingly, this focus on defence has led to the club managing just 16 goals. There is a huge goal scoring burden on Adam Rooney, who is the leading scorer with four in seven matches.

Aberdeen Team News

Aberdeen only have Greg Tansey (groin) and Craig Storie (knee) unavailable due to injury.

Celtic Preview

Celtic have been able to quickly recover from the heavy defeat against Bayern Munich, but the team will be aware that they have not been entirely convincing with their results in recent weeks. One of the biggest disappointments for Brendan Rodgers and his team will be letting Hibernian score four goals in the recent two meetings. Last season, Celtic were head and shoulders above the rest of the competition. Now, they have been unable to pull away from Aberdeen in this early part of the SPL 2017-18 campaign. The top scorer for Celtic so far this season has been Callum McGregor with five goals in nine games.

Celtic Team News

Jozo Simunovic (Achilles tendon) and Tony Ralston (knee) are unavailable due to injuries.
