Away Hearts

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Hearts coming from behind to win. It sounds unlikely, but at 28/1 it might be worth a punt and Levein has made this Hearts team quite a tough one to beat at times, a tactic he may use this weekend.

2 We fancy:

Moussa Dembele is 14/1 to score a hat trick, which might be worth it if he’s in the mood against the Edinburgh side.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Former Wolves and Ipswich man Christophe Berra could play for Hearts, and he’s 14/1 to score at any time and 50/1 to open the scoring.

Celtic's Last Six:

Celtic’s last six: Won: 5 Drawn: 1 Lost: 0

Craig Gordan and Leigh Griffths will almsot certainly miss out due to separate injuries, whilst Anthony Ralston, Tom Rogic, Patrick Roberts, Stuart Armstrong, Marvin Compper and Jonny Hayes will also continue to miss out. It may seem like a long injury list, but I suspect Rodgers will have more than enough players at his disposal to make Celtic dynamic and hard to beat.

Hearts' Last Six:

Hearts’ last six: Won: 2 Drawn: 4 Lost: 0

Craig Levein doesn’t have any injury worries going into this one, with a fully fresh squad at his disposal, but the sale of Isma Goncalves to Pakhtakor Tashkent will likely be a blow to his plans.

Celtic vs Hearts Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Celtic’s home form is the basis of their dominance of Scottish football

It would be easy to say that Celtic are going to run away with this fixture, but as clear favourites it’s hard to look past them picking up all three points. As you’d expect their form has been spotless with the exception of a 0-0 in the Old Firm derby, so a 4-0 win at 9/1 seems likely.

But don’t count out Hearts just yet, seeing as they are the last team to have beaten Celtic. A repeat of their 4-0 win in 2017 is at 200/1, but I think they’ll likely settle for a 1-1, which is priced at 11/1.

Moussa Dembele is 11/4 to be first goal scorer, as is Odsonne Edouard, but former Rangers duo Kyle Lafferty and Steven Naismith are priced at 3/1 and 4/1 respectively to score at any time

Predicted Score: Celtic 3 - 1 Hearts
