Celtic vs Dundee FC Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Celtic were able to claim a comfortable 3-0 victory over Ross County in the latest league encounter. Mousa Dembele’s penalty provided the opener for Celtic just as the first-half was warming up. A red card for Andrew Davies in the 39th minute changed the complexion of the game. Second-half goals from Stuart Armstrong and Tom Rogic earned a comfortable win for Celtic. Dundee were able to stop a run of three consecutive losses by getting a 1-1 draw with Hearts. Even though the visitors took the lead after just two minutes through Ross Callahan’s fine finish, Dundee were level in the 28th minute through Sofien Moussa. However, there was not to be a winner in the game despite Dundee’s push.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The matches between Celtic and Dundee have been close contests with a winning margin of more than one goal happening only twice in the last six meetings between the two clubs. Celtic have not been at their best, while Dundee have been much improved compared to the last few weeks. Despite the game taking place at Celtic Park, it is expected to be a close contest. A highly attractive pick in this game would be to back a Celtic winning margin of one goal.

Celtic may have kept four consecutive clean sheets at home in all competitions, but they are up against a resurgent Dundee outfit that has troubled the likes of Aberdeen in recent weeks. Even though Dundee have been unable to score in four out of the last five games at Celtic Park, I would go with both teams to score – considering the attractive price.

Celtic Preview

Celtic were able to claim the much-needed win over Ross County, as it helps them rediscover the winning touch. The draw at Motherwell has thrown all possible complications to Celtic as the business end of the season approached. Now, however, the win over Ross County puts Celtic’s campaign back on track. The 12-point advantage over Rangers coupled with crucial momentum ahead of the Scottish FA Cup semi-final mean that Brendan Rodgers and his men had the potential to end the campaign on a high – as expected.

Celtic Team News

Jonny Hayes (tibia), Craig Gordon (knee), Nir Bitton (knee), and Kieran Tierney (calf) are the players unavailable for manager Brendan Rodgers.

Dundee FC Preview

Dundee may have gone without a win in the last four games, but the performances from Neil McCann’s team have improved tremendously over the last few matches. Dundee could have easily won the last two games with a little more luck on their side. The problematic area for the club happens to be finding the back of the net. Forwards like Sofien Moussa have not been scoring on a regular basis. Dundee have also conceded a fair number of goals with the likes of St Johnstone and Kilmarnock putting three past the club. Since the campaign ends with back-to-back away matches against Celtic and Rangers, Dundee would not be placing too many hopes about hiking up points in the remaining regular-season matches.

Dundee FC Team News

Marcus Haber (knee) is the only injury concern for Dundee.
