Dundee United – Can United boost European hopes after weekend defeat?

It’s testament to the job that Tam Courts has done in his first season as a Premiership boss, that his team are in control of their own destiny as they go in search of fourth place and qualification to the Europa Conference League. United have a one point cushion over fifth place Motherwell with two games left – they will complete their season with a visit to the Highlands and take on Ross County, who could also yet finish in fourth spot.

It is all to play for and even although United come into this game on the back of a weekend defeat to Rangers, it is a a big improvement on last season already, when they finished in ninth spot.


Our betting prediction
Celtic win/BTTS
(odds taken 2000 GMT, Wednesday 27 April)
Their recent form of late has been mixed with just one win and two draws in their last five games. A home defeat against a below-strength Hearts immediately after the split will be the biggest disappointment in that run, especially haven taken the lead in that game. That is their only home loss in seven league games at Tannadice, winning three and drawing three.
United have scored 12 of their 20 home goals in the last seven games, indicating that the arrival of Tony Watt in January has had a big impact on their attacking threat which had been somewhat impotent before his signing.

Celtic Preview – Will Celtic find result that will wrap up their 10th title in 11 years ?

Saturday’s 4-1 win at home to Hearts has put the title beyond doubt for Celtic, even if it’s not quite official. Ange Postecoglou’s men are six points clear of rivals Rangers with two games to go, but also have a superior goal difference, by a margin of 20. The Hoops will want to do it in style, though, and not only clinch the title with two wins (at home to Motherwell on Saturday) but also extend their unbeaten run to 32 matches.

Although Celtic as a club will celebrate a 10th title in 11 years, it will be a first for Postecoglou and many of the squad who arrived over the course of the last year.

There is no doubt this will be a deserved title for Celtic. They have scored 12 more goals than the next team, conceded eight fewer, won more home games and won more away games. Their form since the turn of the year has been dominant with 14 wins and two draws in 16 league games in 2022 – which includes wins home and away against their nearest rivals, and no team has been able to live with them.

Greek striker Giorgos Giakoumakis came off the bench to score the fourth goal in the win over Hearts at the weekend and having scored twice on his last appearance here, could find himself back in the starting eleven.
