Celtic vs Ross County Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Celtic asserted their superiority over Hamilton to secure a 4-1 win at the SuperSeal Stadium. Stuart Armstrong came up with the first goal of the game after 17 minutes, while a Scott Sinclair brace added to the goal just before half-time. A second-half goal from summer signing Odsonne Edouard puts Celtic comfortably in front, but the team lost a clean sheet late in the game from a corner. Alexander Gogic scored this consolation for Hamilton. Ross County managed a 1-1 draw with Partick Thistle to break a run of four consecutive losses in all competitions. The early goal from Blair Spittal was cancelled out by a late penalty from Alex Schalk. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Celtic’s record in recent matches against Ross County has not been great with only three wins in the last five. Ross County have been able to get two draws against Celtic in these matches. Yet, the away team comes into the game on the back of a very poor run of form, which has seen them suffer four defeats in five of all competitions. A feature of this run is conceding over 1.5 goals in four. Celtic have scored 15 in the last five of all competitions. I would go with a 3-0 win for Celtic. Ross County have failed to score in four out of the last five visits to Celtic Park. Celtic have kept only two clean sheets this season, but it could have been three had it not been for the late goal from Hamilton. I see value in backing a clean sheet for Celtic.

Celtic Preview

After two winless games in two different competitions, Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers will be happy to see his team get back to winning ways in style. Celtic were impressive going forward and new signing Edouard also showed plenty of promise. A debut goal for the youngster is another positive for Celtic from the match against Hamilton. Celtic were behind Aberdeen for just one weekend, as the reigning champions are now back on top of the table. The goal-fest against Hamilton sees Celtic top of the scoring charts with 12 for the season. Scott Sinclair is the top scorer for the club with three goals in the league this season.

Celtic Team News

Dedryck Boyata (knee), Moussa Dembele (hamstring), Erik Sviatchenko (knee), and Leigh Griffiths (knock) are unavailable due to injuries.

Ross County Preview

Ross County’s start to the season was a victory over Dundee but the club has been unable to build on this result. Three consecutive losses in the Premier league coupled with an exit from the League Cup have taken the joy out of this opening day win. However, the club were able to halt this poor run of form with a draw against Partick Thistle, although manager Jim McIntyre is likely to see this result as two points dropped since it was a home game. Ross County have seen goals from across the pitch so far this season with Craig Curran, Jamie Lindsay, and Alex Schalk all managing one goal each.

Ross County are not suffering from injuries or suspension coming into the game.
