Celtic vs Dundee FC Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Celtic dropped points at home for a second time this season after a 2-2 draw with Hibernian during the weekend. Callum McGregor provided the opening goal after 15 minutes, but a second-half brace from John McGinn put the away team in front by the 77th minute. The joy for Hibernian did not last long as Celtic equalised through McGregor in the 80th minute. Dundee grabbed a late 2-1 win over Hearts to move closer to the top six. Kerr Waddell scored from a corner just before the half-time break to provide the home team with the lead, but Kyle Lafferty equalised for Dundee in the 71st minute. Waddell came up with a winner late in the game through another corner.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Celtic may have dropped four points in the last three matches at the Celtic Park, but they are strong favourites to get a comfortable win in this game. Celtic have scored nine goals in the last four games against this opponent, who have also conceded around two goals per game on an average this season. Celtic have scored over 3.5 goals in two of the last four league games, while they recently secured a 4-0 win over Dundee in a Scottish League Cup match. I would back Celtic to score over 3.5 goals. Dundee have scored in each of the last three away games, while Celtic have kept just one clean sheet at home this season. Celtic’s defensive record is a shadow of last season, and it may take Brendan Rodgers time to sort out things at the back. I would bet on both teams to score in the game.

Celtic to score over 3.5 goals – 11/10

Both teams to score – 21/20

Celtic have conceeded only 2 goals in their last 10 games against Dundee FC

Dundee FC saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Celtic Preview

Celtic no longer appear to be the imperious team that they were last season. The club has already dropped four points in the last five league matches. Even though the club are still unbeaten in eight matches this season, the results so far in the 2017-18 SPL campaign are nowhere as imposing as the start made to the 2016-17 season. Brendan Rodgers will especially be worried that Celtic have dropped points only at Celtic Park this season, as the club has picked up wins in all four away matches. The club have conceded close to a goal per game this season. Callum McGregor has become the club’s top scorer with five goals in eight games.

Celtic Team News

Brendan Rodgers will be without Eboue Kouassi (malleolar) due to injury.

Dundee FC Preview

Dundee’s hopes of finishing in the top six of the SPL 2017-18 season appear to depend heavily on home form, as the club have managed both their wins only at the Dens Park. Last season, however, the team had a decent turnaround of results in the home and away games after managing five in each. This time around, Dundee have managed to get just one point from four away games. The club has scored 10 goals – at an average of just over a goal per game – while conceding the second highest number (16) just eight games into the season.

Dundee FC Team News

Josh Meekings (knee) and Scott Allan (groin) are the players unavailable for Dundee.
