Celtic Preview – Will the Bhoys keep up 100% record?

Celtic were the top dogs in Scotland last season, winning their title back from bitter rivals Rangers. They have made a strong start to their championship defence, taking nine points from a possible nine.

Celtic have won their opening three, kicking off the campaign with a 2-0 home victory over Aberdeen. The Bhoys then beat Ross County on the road. Last time out, Ange Postecoglou’s side hammered Kilmarnock 5-0 away from home.

Our betting prediction:
Celtic to be winning at half time

(odds taken 1057 GMT, Saturday 20 August)

Celtic will be keen to keep up their winning record with another three points on their own patch this weekend. The Celts are the overwhelming favourites in this one, with the bookies offering just 2/9.

Hearts Preview – Can the Jambos cause a big upset?

Hearts had an outstanding first season back in the top tier last term, finishing behind Old Firm duo Celtic and Rangers in third. Robbie Neilson’s side picked up 61 points, winning 17, drawing ten and losing 11.

Hearts will be looking for a similar season this time around, and the Jambos have started well. On the opening weekend, they beat Ross County 2-1 before conceding at the death against rivals Hibernian to draw the Edinburgh derby 1-1 at Easter Road in game two. The Jam Tarts bounced back with a 4-1 home victory over Dundee United last weekend.

A trip to Celtic Park will be one of Hearts’ toughest challenges of the season. Still, having lost at Zurich in a vital UEFA Europa League qualifier in midweek, can the Edinburgh outfit respond with a positive result in Glasgow on Sunday?
