Celtic vs Hearts – Prediction, and Match Preview

Celtic vs Hearts – Celtic will aim to build on their previous performance, which included a 1-2 League Cup win over Rangers. Kyogo Furuhashi was the lone Celtic player to score (44′, 56′).

Rangers scored first on a goal from Alfredo Morelos (64′). Recent games against Celtic have proven to be entertaining, with a lot of scoring being a true hallmark.

A total of 23 goals have been scored for both teams over the previous six games (an average of 3.83 goals per game), with 20 of those goals coming from Celtic. With that said, we’ll just have to wait and see if the pattern will continue in this next game.

A review of their previous performances reveals that Celtic has gone five games without losing to Hearts in the league. In their last 38 league home games, they have not lost. What a stronghold they have built.

Hearts will enter the game having just defeated Saint Johnstone by a score of 3-0 in the Premiership. Hearts had 58% of the control in that game and made 12 attempts on goal, scoring on seven of them.

Jorge Grant (73′) and Josh Ginnelly (21′, 63′) scored goals for Hearts. Five of St. Johnstone’s fifteen attempts on goal were on target.

In recent games, it has become clear that at least one side always fails to score when Hearts are involved. It has occurred five times in their last six contests, according to our analysis. Their opponents managed to score six goals in those matches, while Hearts tallied eight.

In the last 26 league games, Hearts have not defeated Celtic when they faced them away from home, according to their past performance. Imagine their relief when they eventually secure a victory away from home after going three league games without one.

Celtic vs Hearts – Betting Analysis

Looking at their previous face-to-face interactions, which date back to August 15, 2021, reveals that Hearts has had terrible results in each one.

They have failed to win any games at all, while Celtic has been the superior team, winning all 100 of their matches against them. During this time, many goals were also tallied, totaling 23 for an average of 3.83 per game.

The two teams’ most recent league matchup occurred on Premiership Match Day 12 on October 22, 2022, with Hearts defeating Celtic 3–4.

Hearts had 37% of the possession in that game and made 15 efforts on goal, scoring on six of them. Lawrence Shankland scored the goal (at 45′, 47′, and 65′).

Seven of Celtic’s 11 attempts on goal were on target. Giorgos Giakoumakis (55′), Daizen Maeda (59′), and Greg Taylor (76′) each tallied a goal. Nicholas Walsh served as the official.

Ange Postecoglou, the manager of Celtic, will be relieved that his team is completely healthy and injury-free going into this match.

A lot of the players for Hearts are injured, according to manager Robbie Neilson. The following players will be unable to participate in this game: Craig Gordon (fractured leg), Gary Mackay-Steven (foot surgery), Liam Boyce (cruciate ligament rupture), Beni Baningime (cruciate ligament injury), and Craig Halkett (cruciate ligament injury).

When comparing these two teams, we believe Celtic has what it takes to generate lots of shots on target and convert them into goals. Hearts, despite the fact that we believe they will occasionally be threatening, may have trouble scoring despite this.
