Aberdeen vs Celtic Odds and Preview – Scottish Championship Betting October 27

Celtic can achieve another shout-out at Pittodrie

Scottish Premiership Betting at Coral

In most other leagues in the world, a match between the team currently fourth in the table and the league leaders would see the match betting fairly close. The Scottish Premiership is not a normal top flight, however. Bookmakers habitually run scared of the two Glasgow giants, such is the perceived gulf in class between them and the rest, which is why Aberdeen are 7/1 with a number of leading bookmakers to make home advantage count against Celtic.

Dons manager Derek McInnes is agonising over whether to recall Craig Bryson for their clash with the champions.
The influential midfielder hasn’t played in more than a month but has joined in full-time training this week and looks poised to play some part. However, it may only be from the bench if the manager decides to stick with the more defensive formation employed in last week’s impressive 3-0 win at third-placed Motherwell. That victory saw Aberdeen move to within a point of ‘Well but they really need to beat Celtic to stay within touching distance of the top two.
The home side will be hoping that Thursday’s exciting win over Lazio in the Europa League will have sapped some energy from Celtic legs. But the Hoops have won six of their seven matches in the league immediately after a European game this season so that looks a forlorn hope.
McInnes acknowledges that his team will need to match Celtic’s energy to get a result but they are strong at Pittodrie and are unbeaten in the league at home this season. They need to start turning draws into wins, however, if they are to make ground on the leading clubs.
Sam Cosgrove has scored five in five and has become hot property as the lone striker for Aberdeen so he will require close attention from the visitors.

Neil Lennon’s side will be without Ryan Christie for the visit to Pittodrie.
Christie was sent off in the shock defeat to Livingston and is still suspended but Lennon has plenty of options with the biggest squad in Scottish football.
Celtic have lost just one of their last 14 games in all competitions. Worryingly, from an Aberdeen perspective and for the rest of the Premiership, they’ve been sharing the goals around the team. But Odsonne Edouard usually appears on the score-sheet and Mohamed Elyounoussi has also been among the goals lately.
The Hoops average more than three goals a game in the Premiership whereas Aberdeen have managed just 13 in nine matches. Celtic’s defence has been criticised this season but they’ve only conceded seven goals in the league and the return of Fraser Forster in goals has made them look more secure. The manager will probably ring the changes again for this one but will retain the core of the side that has served him so well this term, with Scott Brown at the heart of the midfield alongside Callum McGregor.
