Kilmarnock vs Celtic match preview

Will Celtic move another step closer to retaining their Premiership title?

Last weekend, the Hoops moved 12 points clear at the top of the table by beating fierce rivals Rangers 3-2 in a thriller at Parkhead.

Kyōgo Furuhashi’s fine form continued, bagging a brace, before Jota pounced on some lacklustre defending, rounded the goalkeeper and slotted home a third.

That made it 11 successive league wins for Ange Postecoglou’s team who’ve accumulated a ridiculous 70 points from 72 available since their only defeat of the season in September.

The Celts face Rangers again in a fortnight in the Scottish Cup semi-finals, looking good to secure a fifth treble in seven seasons.

Meanwhile, in the league, they’re on course to break the all-time Scottish top-flight points record of 106 set by Brendan Rodgers’ side in 2016/17.

Already this season, Celtic have beaten Kilmarnock 5-0, 2-0 and 2-0, with another emphatic victory likely in Ayrshire.

Killie themselves are simply battling to remain in the Premiership starting the weekend tenth, one point above Ross County and three clear of Dundee United.

Derek McInnes’ men were beaten 2-0 by Aberdeen at Pittodrie last time out, meaning they’ve won just one of their last seven.

Of Kilmarnock’s 28 points, 26 have been won at home (93%), which is the highest % of any club in Europe’s top ten leagues.

Their most-recent win in this fixture came in September 2016, a 2-1 victory, which remains the last time Celtic took the lead in a Premiership match and lost.

Anything other than an emphatic away win would be a Sunday lunchtime surprise at Rugby Park.
