Heart of Midlothian vs Celtic match preview

Will Celtic secure a 53rd Scottish Premiership title?

So far, Ange Postecoglou’s team have won a staggering 30 of 33 league games this season, despite actually only managing a draw with Motherwell a fortnight ago.

This ended the Hoops’ 17-match winning streak, but they certainly bounced back last weekend at Hampden.

Jota’s header was the difference as the Celts beat Old Firm rivals Rangers 1-0 in Sunday’s Scottish Cup semi-finals.

Man of the match Cameron Carter-Vickers’ contribution cannot be overlooked, with the USA international a colossus at the back in, what was, his final game of the season as he requires surgery.

Celtic will face Inverness Caley Thistle in next month’s final, very much on course for yet another treble.

Between 1888 and 2016, the Hoops won three domestic trebles, but they’re now odds-on to complete a fifth in just seven seasons.

Back in the league, given that they boast a 13 point advantage at the top, victory here would rubber stamp the title, ahead of next weekend’s trip to Ibrox; guard of honour discussion anyone?

So, will it be time to party for those making the short trip from Glasgow’s East End to Edinburgh?

Heart of Midlothian meanwhile still have plenty to play for too, seeking European qualification.

The Jambos were enduring a run of five successive defeats prior to their last outing, a 6-1 demolition of Ross County in Gorgie.

Alex Cochrane broke the deadlock, Josh Ginnelly bagged a brace and Lawrence Shankland scored a hat-trick, taking his tally to 25 for the campaign.

Steven Naismith’s side therefore remain fourth, four points clear of Hibs and St Mirren but five points adrift in-form Aberdeen.

They’ll be desperate to reclaim third place, as that secures guaranteed UEFA group stage football, while finishing fourth and fifth would see them enter the Europa Conference League qualifiers.

Celtic have already beaten Hearts all four times they’ve met this season, scoring 12 goals in these matches.

Thus, an emphatic away victory seems likely for the champions at Tynecastle.
