Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Celtic will be looking to retain top position in the Scotland Premier League standings when they host Aberdeen at their Celtic Park on Matchday 19. Over the years the Hoops have established themselves at the dominant force in the Premiership, but winning the 2019/2020 trophy is easier said than done as Steven Gerrard is doing an amazing job with Rangers.
Neil Lennon’s charges aim to keep their 100% record at home ground intact, and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play against Aberdeen. The Dons are a real force to be reckoned with at home as well, but we do not believe that Derek McInnes’ troops are capable of spoiling Celtic’s party in Glasgow as they were outplayed by Hibernian (0-3) in their last away game in the national championship. You should bear in mind that Celtic crushed Aberdeen 4-0 in their last meeting in the Premiership.
Highlighted Player (Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo):
Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo is a left winger who was born in Antwerp, Belgium on July 1, 1995. Bolingoli-Mbombo is a product of Beerschot youth academy, but he played for Club Brugge during his youth career as well. The pacey winger made his first-team debut with Club Brugge on July 26, 2013 in the opening match of the 2013/2014, coming as a substitute for Maxime Lestienne in the dying minutes of the game.
On March 19, 2015 Bolingoli-Mbombo produced one of the best performances of his career as he scored a brace against Besiktas in the Europa league last 16, helping Club Brugge make it to the quarter-finals of the European competition. The Belgian footballer, who is a cousin of Manchester United attacker Romelu Lukaku, has yet to earn a cap for the national team.
Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo’s main position is left winger, but he is used as a left back as well. In 2017 he moved to Rapid Vienna and he has been playing for the Austrian side ever since.
