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

Match preview

Will Celtic maintain their nine-point lead at the top of the Premiership table, ahead of Monday’s mouthwatering Old Firm at Ibrox?

On Christmas Eve, the Hoops swatted aside St Johnstone at home, with both Reo Hatate and Kyōgo Furuhashi bagging braces.

Ange Postecoglou’s team have now won 17 of 18 league matches this season, winning each of the last 11.

Back in mid-October, James Forrest bagged a hat-trick as Celtic hammered Hibs in Glasgow.

Around that time, there was very little to smile about for Hibernian supporters, with their team losing six of seven games between 11 October and 15 December.

But then, on Saturday, Lee Johnson’s team claimed a massive victory, in every sense, demolishing Livingston 4-0.

Kevin Nisbet and Chris Cadden on target, before Kyle Magennis bagged a brace, all the goals coming in the first 50 minutes.

This victory lifted Hibs up to seventh, ahead of their own New Years’ derby against Hearts at Tynecastle on Bank Holiday Monday.

So here, can Hibs cause a massive shock against the league-leaders at Easter Road?
