St Mirren won 2-1 at Parkhead 14 months ago, but that is their only victory in 18 meetings with the Hoops. Subsequently, Celtic hammered the Saints 4-0 and 6-0 before a goalless draw in Paisley just before Christmas. Celtic have scored 4+ against St Mirren ten times since 2010.
After rough recent results, will Celtic get back to winning ways in this one?
On Sunday, the Hoops could not find the breakthrough so were held to a goalless draw by Hibernian at Easter Road.
But, the Bhoys were not made to pay for their dropped points with Rangers throwing away a two goal lead to draw against Motherwell later in the day.
So, Ange Postecoglou’s men remain three points clear of their fierce rivals and are now unbeaten in 22 Premiership games, winning 19 of them.
But, having been hammered 5-1 on aggregate by Bodø/Glimt in the Europa Conference League, the pressure has ramped up on Celtic to regain the title.
Will they, at least, maintain their three-point advantage ahead of a trick trip to the Tony Macaroni Arena on Sunday?
St Mirren meanwhile are battling to get into one of the top six spots with the split just five games away now.
However, in Stephen Robinson’s first game in charge on Saturday, the Saints had Connor Ronan sent off just 21 minutes into their game against Hearts.
This would prove costly as the Jambos scored twice in three second half minutes to win 2-0 at The Simple Digital Arena.
Before this, the Buddies were unbeaten in six league games, winning four, but having Jim Goodwin pinched by Aberdeen could unsettle things.
Nevertheless, St Mirren sit eighth, just two points behind Motherwell in sixth so very much in the hunt for a top half finish.
Here though, anything other than a Celtic victory would be a major turn up for the books.
Celtic team news
The hosts are still without star striker Kyōgo Furuhashi and midfielder David Turnbull; their return dates are still unknown.
Matt O’Riley was the only man to come off the bench on Sunday so could start here, in place of Reo Hatate or Tom Rogic in midfield.
Georgios Giakoumakis missed that one due to illness but, if available, will lead the line, in place of Daizen Maeda.
Liel Abada bagged a brce when St Mirren visited in August and will be a threat once again.
St Mirren team news
The Saints’ star striker Eamonn Brophy came off the bench at the weekend for his first appearance since 1 February due to an ankle injury.
However, January signing Alex Greive could continue to lead the line.
Connor Ronan is suspended after his red card on Saturday, meaning Ryan Flynn or Ethan Erhahon are likely to come in.
Joe Shaughnessy and Conor McCarthy are a solid centre-back duo but that’ll be sorely tested at the home of the league-leaders.
