With Celtic Glasgow against Heart of Midlothian, the first and last of the Scottish Premiership meet. The starting point is therefore already sufficiently described. As so often in the past, the home side has a duel with the city rival Rangers for the championship.
Celtic Glasgow vs Heart of Midlothian Soccer Betting Tips
After the arch enemy has overcome the economic downswing and the associated sporting crash, everything is back to old in Scotland. Celtic is playing even stronger this season than last year.
If you continue to score as before, in the final accounts of the regular season after 33 rounds of play, the impressive result of 77 points last season would be surpassed by a whopping eleven points.
However, the Rangers have also risen once again, which is why the current gap on the arch rivals is only seven points and the pursuers completed one game less. The bottom of the table must therefore not have any higher hopes for a possibly insufficiently motivated opposing team.
The Celtic Glasgow vs. Heart of Midlothian tip on odds around 1.67 includes a home win, with the expectation that the hosts are already leading the break tea. A scenario that has already been observed in two thirds of the Bhoys’ home games to date.
Celtic Glasgow – Statistics & current form
At Celtic, the only deficit that has been noticed is that the defensive has waned somewhat in comparison to the previous year, since after 25 rounds of play with 15 goals, they have only two fewer than at the final settlement in the past season after match day 33.
At the same time, however, the offensive has clearly increased. It is now one hit more if you compare the end of last season’s regular season in the Scottish Premiership.
First of all, the Frenchman Odsonne Edouard has his share in this: the 22-year-old leads the scorer scoring in Scotland with 20 goals. In the end, Edouard really turned it up again. He scored no less than three doubles in the last four games!
But Celtic not only has the best goal-getter in its own ranks, it also has James Forrest, the strongest player in the league. The 28-year-old midfielder has already played 13 goals from his teammates this season. The club’s bedrock, which is contesting its eleventh season with the Celts, is another building block in the great offensive mentioned.
Given the dazzling condition of the attack department, Celtic Glasgow offers Heart of Midlothian’s odds for more than 2.5 goals by the home side.
A limit that on average surpasses the offensive in previous home games with a value of more than three goals. According to Brendan Rodgers, the Green-Whites have otherwise remained true to the Northern Irish nationality of the trainer.
Last year, his countryman Neil Lennon succeeded Rodgers, who had migrated to the Foxes of Leicester. Lennon is an old acquaintance in the club: During his active time he was a player with the Bhoys and the 48-year-old is doing the coaching job at Celtic for the second time.
He already held this function between 2010 and 2014. The time was very successful: three championships and a double win of the Scottish Cup. There are many indications that Neil Lennon will soon celebrate the next title with Celtic.

Heart of Midlothian – Statistics & current form
The hearts crashed badly this season. Starting last year in sixth place, the club is in last place in the Premiership table.
In December of last year, the patience of those responsible for the club broke and a new coach was installed with Daniel Stendel. The 45-year-old was also active in his home country when he once looked after Hanover 96.
At his new employer, the coach from Frankfurt / Oder swept through with an iron broom and among other things promoted the captain Christophe Berra from the squad. Despite the changes, his start in Edinburgh failed.
Stendel had four bankruptcies in a row before he managed at least one point against Aberdeen in his fifth game under his direction. This was followed by the most successful phase of the season with five more competitive games in the league and in the cup without defeat.
The highlight was undoubtedly the sensational victory against the Rangers against a home backdrop in Tynecastle Park. The favorite was beaten 2: 1 two weeks ago. For the first time again after twelve unsuccessful attempts in which ten bankruptcies were booked.
Most recently, however, the bottom of the table turned back onto Loserstrasse with a flop at Kilmarnock.
