Celtic vs Rangers betting tips: Scottish Premiership preview, predictions and odds

Match preview

Scotland’s top two. Scotland’s big two.

Celtic and Rangers are set to lock horns for the first time this season, with this the 431st instalment of the world’s fiercest rivalry.

Coming up in the Champions League this week, these two will face Real Madrid and Ajax respectively, but no one is look beyond this pivotal Premiership contest.

So far this season, it’s played six and won six for Celtic in league and cup.

Last Sunday, the Hoops remained top of the table by recoding their biggest-ever away victory, hammering Dundee United 9-0.

Kyōgo Furuhashi and Liel Abada both leaving Tannadice with match-balls.

Then, on Wednesday night, Ange Postecoglou’s side safely reached the League Cup quarter-finals, swatting aside Ross County.

Callum McGregor, Giorgos Giakoumakis, Daizen Maeda and James Forrest, who’s now scored in 14 consecutive seasons for the club, on target in Dingwall.

Will the Celts’ perfect start to the season continue, knowing a win would open up a five-point gap?

Rangers meanwhile dropped points at Easter Road a fortnight ago, ending up with nine-men, before Hibs equalised in the 95th minute.

Nevertheless, Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team have had a far more hectic start to the campaign, needing to overcome both Royale Union Saint-Gilloise and PSV Eindhoven in Champions League qualifying.

This week, the Light Blues have hammered Ross County at Ibrox, before cruising past Queen of the South in the League Cup.

18 year old Robbie Ure scoring ten minutes into his debut, before Scott Arfield netted twice in a 3-1 win.

Last season witnessed five Old Firm derbies; it was two victories a piece and one draw.

Thus, it is extremely tough to call, but can Celtic make home advantage count at Parkhead?
