St Mirren Preview – Can Saints avoid heavy defeat?

St Mirren started the new Scottish Premiership season with a 1-0 home win over Livingston but they quickly succumbed to a heavy 3-0 defeat away at Rangers and The Saints face another tough assignment on Wednesday night when they play host to Celtic.

Last season’s campaign saw St Mirren finish fourth from bottom in 9th place in what was a fairly disappointing season before the lockdown was imposed, although their results at home suggested that they at least generally held their own against the lesser mortals in the division but it was a different story away from home.

St Mirren finished up with a fairly reasonable home record of 5-6-4 13/13 but their record against Celtic is a disastrous one as they’ve lost 12 of the previous 13 encounters against The Hoops and look powerless to stop Neil Lennon’s side here again.

Our betting suggestion:

Celtic Preview – Can Celtic continue dominance over St Mirren?

Celtic were clear and away the best side again in last season’s albeit shortened Scottish Premiership campaign, as they held a commanding 13-point lead over 2nd placed Rangers, and although they’re not already top of this season’s table, Celtic are unbeaten after their first two matches of this new season.

The Hoops started the new season in emphatic fashion by recording a 5-0 rout over Wednesday’s opponents, St Mirren, at their Celtic Park but were held to a 1-1 draw away at Kilmarnock on Sunday, so the visitors will be keen to set the record straight as it were, with all three points against a St Mirren outfit who they’ve dominated in previous exchanges.

Celtic bring an impressive 11-match unbeaten run on the road into this clash which includes no fewer than nine victories, and in this upcoming clash at St Mirren it isn’t whether Celtic will win but by how great the margin of victory will be.
