Celtic Preview – Can Celtic shake off Euro setback?

Not only did Celtic suffer a surprising 2-1 defeat in midweek in the Champions League qualifiers, but The Hoops could find themselves nine points adrift of their old Firm rivals, Rangers, as Steven Gerrard’’s side play lowly Hamilton Academical on Saturday.

However, if any team can embark on a winning streak and chase down early league leaders, Rangers, then it’s Neil Lennon’s side who have played just three league matches so far this season but have picked up seven points in the process.

A 5-1 home win over Hamilton Academical and a 1-0 win away from home at Dundee United were either side of a 1-1 draw at Kilmarnock, so Celtic have made a positive start to this new term, but as the hosts are ridiculously short priced for the win, the goals market appeals as 13 of Celtic’s last 16 home matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Motherwell Preview – Can Motherwell transfer Euro form?

Motherwell were also in action on the European stage during the week and it was a more successful evening for ‘Well as they recorded a convincing 5-1 home win against Northern Ireland outfit, Glentoran, at Fir Park to progress through to the next qualifying round of the Europa League.

However, success in the Europa League has come at an early cost in the Scottish Premiership for Motherwell as the visitors are still without a win in this season’s domestic top flight, having suffered defeats against Ross County, Dundee United and most disappointing of all, last weekend’s 1-0 defeat at home to lowly Hamilton Academical.

The bigger picture doesn’t bode well either for Motherwell as they’ve managed to pick up just one win out of their last 13 matches overall, so they’ll have their work cut out to get a result at Celtic Park as they look set to come under siege from an in-form Celtic side.
