Kilmarnock vs Celtic Prediction & Match Preview

0

CELTIC travel to Ayrshire to face Kilmarnock needing a point to officially confirm their 54th Scottish title.

Brendan Rodgers’ side were too good for ten-man Rangers at the weekend and they got the win required to all but claim another league triumph. In fact, they could even have it tied up before they kick off if Rangers don’t beat Dundee at home on Tuesday.

They were actually a long way from their best against Rangers and struggled to break them down. It led to a nervy last few minutes in the match as their Old Firm rivals tried to rescue an unlikely point. It didn’t matter in the end and their fans had one hell of a party.

We have to assume Rangers will beat Dundee, but this is actually a very tricky game for the Hoops against an excellent Killie side, who are well-organised and have clinched fourth spot in the table and Europa League football next term after a really consistent campaign, where they haven’t lost to any team in the league apart from Rangers since the start of December.

They have been Celtic’s biggest tests this season and manager Derek McInnes won’t want Celtic celebrating another title triumph on his Ayrshire patch

Celtic are short enough to win at 4/11 when a draw is actually all they need. That’s 19/4 and a Kilmarnock win is 11/2 all with bet365.

Kilmarnock have handed Celtic plenty of problems this season which started with an early season League Cup win in August at Rugby Park.

They followed that up with another win in the league in December at Ayrshire. They also grabbed a draw at Parkhead and Celtic have won just one out of their four meetings so far this season.

Matt O’Riley capped a brilliant season with the crucial opener against Rangers on Saturday and the Danish international took his season tally to an excellent 16 goals, including one at Rugby Park. He is 15/8 to score anytime with bet365.

Kyle Vassell netted the all-important goal for Killie at St Mirren on Saturday that clinched fourth place and he now has 11 for the season. He is 4/1 to score anytime with bet365.

Celtic’s Alastair Johnston could be out. Kilmarnock’s Brad Lyons is out for the rest of the campaign and joins Kyle Magennis on the sidelines.

CELTIC: Hart, Ralston, Carter-Vickers, Taylor, McGregor, Hatate, O’Riley, Maeda, Kyogo, Kuhn.

KILMARNOCK: Dennis, Mayo, Wright, Findlay, Ndaba, Armstrong, Donnelly, Watson, Kennedy, Watkins, Vassell

Killie are worth a go here on the double chance market to either win or draw at 2/1 with bet365. They have gone toe-to-toe with the champions-elect this season and will want to avoid a title party on their own patch.

Celtic usually hate playing on the artificial turf of Rugby Park and always seem to get a hard game here. Brendan Rodgers will want the title clinched in style, but a point will do them nicely.

They also look a really solid bet at 4/5 with a two-goal start on the handicaps. It’s hard to see Celtic romping to anything approaching an easy win here.
