Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Celtic will be looking to keep their title hopes alive when they host Hamilton at their Celtic Park. The Hoops are not enjoying a season to remember, but the hopes dies last. The good news for the hosts is that several first-team regulars have recovered from coronavirus. Midfielder Scott Brown remains sidelined through suspension, while Forrest and Jullien are both likely to miss the game with injuries.
Hamilton, on the other hand, have been struggling in front of goal of late, with the team failing to find the net in five of their last six league fixtures. Since Celtic are desperate to return to winning ways in the Scottish top flight, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the reigning champions. Keep in mind that Celtic are eyeing their 15th consecutive win over Hamilton in the national championship.
Highlighted Player (Christopher Jullien):
Christopher Jullien is a professional footballer who plays for Toulouse as a defender. The 195-cm-tall centre-back played for Auxere youth team from 2005 to 2011 and he made his first-team debut for the club on August 24, 2012 in a 2-1 win over Stade Lavallois.
Christopher Jullien scored his first ever goal a week later in a Coupe de la Ligue clash against Dijon. The French defender made 25 appearances in the league for Auxerre and in 2013 he moved to Germany, signing a professional contract with Freiburg. Jullien made only one appearance for the first team, but it has to be noted that he scored five goals in 49 games for the second team. After ending his loan spell with Dijon in the summer of 2016, he signed a four-year deal with Ligue 1 side Toulouse.
Christopher Jullien scored four goals, while providing one assist for his teammates in the 2016/2017 Ligue 1 campaign. The French footballer was born on March 22, 1993 in Lagny-sur-Marne and his preferred foot is right.
Highlighted Team (Hamilton):
Nicknamed the Accies, Hamilton are the Scottish Premier League club founded back in 1874. Hamilton’s home ground is New Douglas Park, the venue which was opened in 2001. The capacity of the stadium is only 6,018. The Accies clinched their first domestic trophy in the 1985/86 season, with the team finishing the process eleven points clear of second-placed Falkirk.
Two seasons later, Hamilton repeated the success, with the team clinching their third and last Scotland Premier League trophy in the 2007/2008 season. The Accies wear white shirts with red stripes when playing at home ground, while blue and green are the dominant colours of their away kit. Fellow clubs based in Lanarkshire, Motherwell, and Albion Rovers, are considered the club’s main rivals.
Speaking of the club’s biggest win, you should bear in mind that Hamilton outclassed Morton 10-0 in May 2014. Crystal Palace midfielder James McCarthy is considered one of the most notable footballers who started their senior career at Hamilton.
