Our Prediction:

Celtic will win

Celtic – Kilmarnock Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 08:00

However, Celtic will more than likely continue to excel in domestic games, and their current 6 points advantage over Rangers in the league table is testament to that. The game brought Celtic back down to Earth, and sooner or later they were bound to be defeated. The more games you keep winning, the higher the chances are of being beaten, and thats exactly what happened.

Kilmarnock have won 8 of the 93 matches, Kilmarnock have a current form rating of 58% They have scored 59 in the 93 matches against Celtic and have won 8.6% of those matches. 19.35% of the last 93 Celtic v Kilmarnock matches have resulted in a draw. Celtic have won 67 of the 93 matches, Celtic have a current form rating of 100% They have scored 209 in the 93 matches against Kilmarnock and have won 72.04% of those matches. The teams have played each other 93 times since 1994.

The visitors last clash at home saw them get the better of Hibernian with two unanswered goals to their name, prior to which they secured all three points against St. Johnstone with a 1-0 scorecard. Kilmarnock have turned things around from the dismal start they got off to, and are boasting a very impressive two-match winning streak under their belt.

The hosts opened the scoring after Kristoffer Ajer brought down Niang, who subsequently converted the penalty in the 37th minute. It was an end-to-end game throughout the 90 minutes, with both teams finding their level and competing well against one another. Ryan Christie brought things level, and the score ended 1-1. The Hoops continued to compete and, after being denied what seemed like a stonewall penalty, they were eventually awarded one with just under half an hour to play.

Celtic vs Kilmarnock Preview, Prediction, Betting Tips

Celtic have a lot to be happy about after their 1-1 draw at Rennes midway through the week but they still saw a six-match winning streak ended in France, getting just a point as they opened their Europa League campaign. They now host Kilmarnock looking to bounce back to the winning ways quickly and keep hold of their Premiership top spot.

Killie have won twice away and drawn once away from home in their last 5 fixtures, which isnt too bad. However, we cant see anything but a win for Celtic here, which is why were backing to win and over 3.5 goals, with a final result of 3-1 to the Hoops. Despite Kilmarnocks form going into this game, its going to be an extremely tough task to come away from Celtic Park with anything but a defeat, let alone a draw or a win. Celtics home record has been near-perfect as well as their overall form under Neil Lennon.

It also needs saying that the hosts are certainly sizing up to be an indomitable force in the Premiership, having already taken out the runners up of last season Rangersby a 2-0 scoreline. Celtic have hit the ground running with five wins out of five in the league and are currently at the helm with a safe three-point advantage.

St Johnstone v Rangers

Kilmarnock have a four-match unbeaten streak behind them and will surely be looking for an upset, with some solid performances in head-to-head clashes but still nothing to show for it with three narrow losses behind them. Theyve been rock-solid at the back and based their success on such an approach lately, as Angelo Alessios side promises a strong challenge again.

Killie will challenge Rangers for a place in the Scottish Cup semi-final, whilst Celtic have the tough job of overturning a 2-0 tie at Valencia. Were going to back a 1-1 draw for this game, as the sides will have more important things to worry about. Moreover, the Hoops will want to bounce back from their latest defeat, but Rugby Park isnt an easy place to do that. Both teams have very important matches during the week. This is a tough game to call.

The reigning champions are known for being a fortress in their home games in European competitions, but Brendan Rodgers men looked like they were boys playing against well-organized men. Valencia were happy enough to let Celtic play possession-based football once the Spanish side were 2-0 up, a score that can be attributed, amongst other things, to a slack Celtic defense.
