Celtic vs Heart of Midlothian betting tips: Scottish Premiership preview, predictions and odds

Match preview

Will Celtic make it four wins out of four to start the new Scottish Premiership season?

Last weekend, Ange Postecoglou’s team put on a five-star display, hammering Kilmarnock 5-0 at Rugby Park.

In the first half, Kyōgo Furuhashi broke the deadlock from close-range, before Jota fired home his second spectacular strike of the season already.

After the interval, Moritz Jenz and Giorgos Giakoumakis both scored overhead kicks, with Carl Starfelt bundling home his first for the club in-between.

This means the Hoops are top of the table with maximum points on the board, having already beaten Aberdeen and Ross County.

As for Heart of Midlothian, this game comes in-between two massive European matches for the club.

On Thursday, the Jambos returned to UEFA competition after six years away, facing FC Zürich at Kybunpark in the Europa League play-offs.

The traveling support were in dreamland in St. Gallen when, mid-way through the first half, Lawrence Shankland fired home a penalty.

However, the Swiss champions scored twice just three minutes apart, thereby going in 2-1 up at the break.

That was the end of the scoring, meaning Hearts are very much still in the tie ahead of next Thursday’s return leg at Tynecastle.

If Robbie Neilson’s team are beaten, they’ll drop down into the Europa Conference League group stages, but are desperate to remain in the second-tier tournament.

With that second leg to come for Hearts, Celtic should cruise to victory here.
