Celtic 7/10 to beat Hibernian in Wednesday’s Scottish Premiership showdown
Competition: Scottish Premiership
Market: Celtic win
Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport
Looking to extend on what has been a much-needed boost, Celtic will make the trip to a struggling Hibernian on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Hibernian might have enjoyed an eye-catching start to the 2021/22 campaign, they are in the midst of what has been a worrying run of form. In their opening 10 Premiership matchups so far this season, they have recorded four wins, three draws and three defeats, scoring 14 and conceding 12 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 15, they open the midweek fixtures sat fifth in the table and four points adrift of Wednesday’s opponents. As for their recent run of results, last seen over the weekend getting hit with a 1-0 defeat away at Aberdeen, Hibs have lost each of their last three Premiership matchups on the spin. Likewise, managing to win just a pair of their last seven contests across all formats, it should also be noted that they were hit with a 3-0 defeat against Dundee United in their last home fixture.
As for the visitors, despite enduring a woeful run of form at the start of the 2021/22 campaign, Celtic have managed to find a much-needed boost recently. In their opening 10 Premiership contests, they have recorded six wins, one draw and three defeats, scoring 23 and conceding six in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 19, the former champions open the midweek fixtures sat fourth in the standings and four points adrift of league leaders Rangers. However, as for their recent run of results, last seen over the weekend picking up a 2-0 win at home against St. Johnstone, Celtic have won each of their last four matchups across all formats. Likewise, now recording three clean sheets on the spin, it should be noted that the Hoops have recorded back-to-back Premiership victories on the road.
