Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
David faces Goliath at Celtic Park as Celtic take on Dundee United in the Scotland Premiership round 14. The Hoops aim to cement top position in the standings, with the team eyeing their sixth consecutive league win, and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play. Fit-again forward Jota is pushing for a start after scoring as a substitute in a 3-0 win over Livingston, whilst both McGregor and Carter-Vickers are out of contention with injuries.
The Terrors, on the other hand, are on a three-game losing run in all competitions, with the team dropping to the penultimate place in the standings. As previously mentioned, this is a David vs Goliath clash, meaning that anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise. To make things even worse for the away team, forward Tony Watt is banned for the match.
