On December 24, Celtic Park (Glasgow) will host the match of the 18th round of the Scottish Premiership, in which Celtic will compete with St. Johnstone. The battle will start at 14:30 CET.

Celtic

The club has almost unquestionably dominated in Scottish football during recent years. But still, Rangers, under the rule of Gerrard, was able to prevent 10 titles of a “neighbouring enemy” in a row. Well, headed by Postecoglou since the previous season, “the Hoops” has already started a new run for titles. This team should not be overestimated, and this statement has been already confirmed in the Champions League. Having got the right to play there in the group stage finally, the Scots limited themselves to a couple of draws with Shakhtar. Now the team can focus on the Premiership, but is it really necessary? The main competitor was “limping” during the whole autumn and let “the Celts” break away, and such a gap is unlikely to win back in this case. As a result, the game can be played just for fun.

St. Johnstone

The team may bring the last decade to the asset. It regularly started in European competitions. Of course, even to cope with the first opponent was an achievement, but such is the level of Scottish club football nowadays. Finally, the League Cup and the Scottish Cup were taken in 2021, despite the fact that during almost 140 years of previous history there were not so many trophies! “The Saints” seems to have been celebrating for too long, as they saved to stay in the Premiership only in the spring in the play-offs. But recently the team has added a lot. An away 2-1 win in the match against Ross County, issued on the 17th of December, was already the seventh one in 17 matches. As a result, the wards of Callum Davidson feel themselves quite confident in the top six.

The statistics of head-to-head matches

St. Johnstone has not been able to win since 2016 and lost to the grand almost all the time. This season, Celtic has already got an away win with a 2-1 score in October.

Predictions

Bookmakers have no doubts about the victory of the champion - and we totally agree with this idea. The question is how confident it will be, taking into account the fact that St. Johnstone looks quite combat-ready. It is enough to bet “a -1.5 goal handicap” (odd: 1.95).
