Celtic are without a win in their last four games and face bottom of the league Hamilton who will be doing their best to prolong the champion’s agony.

Celtic Preview – Can Celtic regain some sort of form to avoid falling further behind the runaway leaders?

It’s been an awful season for Celtic who will almost certainly miss out on their 10th league title in a row. Last week’s draw away to Livingston coupled with Rangers’ win at the weekend means the Hoops are 23 points behind their rivals. Granted they do have three games in hand but not only would there still be a significant deficit if they win those matches, there is also no guarantee that they can take maximum points from the games in their current form.

If you take it back further then Celtic’s league form has been poor for a sustained period of time. Their last 13 Premiership matches have seen them win only five. It’s not a run you associate with a team who have been so successful.

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Tuesday 26 January)
It’s a surprise to see Neil Lennon still at the club as he has lurked from disaster to disaster this season. The Celtic manager has been extremely defensive of late and he’s unable to justify his own actions with the performances of his team on the park.
Celtic are set to welcome back Odsonne Edouard who has missed the last three games and although he’s been a pivotal player for the past few seasons, even his inclusion will do little to lift the spirits of the Celtic support.

Hamilton Preview – Are Hamilton capable of a surprise result which would increase their chances of another survival bid?

It’s January so it’s little surprise to see Hamilton sit bottom of the table. Brian Rice’s team are no strangers to this situation and the fact they are only below Motherwell on goal difference will only add to their belief that they will find the point they need to stay in the top-flight for another season. Rice will take some confidence from their recent form where they have lost only one of their last four.

Picking up five points from every run of four games between now and the end of the campaign would likely see them safe but they know the challenge that awaits them on Tuesday.

With Rangers visiting and then a trip to in-form Livingston to come in their next four games, Hamilton have their work cut in the next couple of weeks. They also face Ross County before the derby with Mortherwell in them middle of next month which has the makings of a critical match in both clubs’s seasons.

Only Ross County have conceded more goals than Accies this season but they have also scored more goals than four other teams, so they will cause teams problems but have to be better defensively if they are to get out of trouble.

Celtic vs Hamilton Betting Advice

Celtic have cruised by Hamilton in both meetings so far this season – winning 5-1 at Celtic Park on the opening weekend of the season before a comprehensive 3-0 success away from home on Boxing Day. Hamilton have caused their opponents problems in recent times, however, including a 2-1 loss just over a year ago when conceding the winning goal in the final minute of the match.

Normally anything Hamilton get from these visits would be a bonus but considering Celtic’s struggles they may sense an opportunity.


Key Facts – Celtic vs Hamilton Betting Tip

  • Celtic have yet to win a game in in 2021 – drawing three and losing the other
  • Hamilton have lost six of their last eight away games in the Scottish Premiership
  • The teams have met twice already this season with Celtic winning both games with an aggregate score of 8-1


Hamilton do have a threat going forward and have scored in three of their last four meetings with Celtic. Considering their fragility of the Hoops’ defence then both teams to score looks a good option here.
