Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
After beating Hearts on penalties in the Scottish Cup final at the weekend, Celtic will be looking to keep their Premiership title hopes alive when they host Ross County at their Celtic Park. The Hoops have already dropped too many points in the new Premier League campaign, meaning that this has to go down as a must-win game for the reigning champions. Celtic were beaten by Ross County in the Scottish League Cup, meaning that Neil Lennon’s troops are hungry for revenge.
James Forrest is the only absentee in the home team. The Staggies are on a four-game losing run in all competitions, and given the importance of the match for the hosts, we predict that John Hughes’ men are going to return home empty-handed. The likes of Charles-Cook, Grivosti, Lakin, and Randall are all out of contention through injuries for the visiting team.
