Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Celtic will be looking to build on a thrilling 6-0 win over Dundee when they take on St. Mirren on day 3 of the new Premiership campaign. The Hoops are determined to regain the domestic trophy, and their displays at the start of the season are surely giving fans a reason for optimism. Since Celtic have been impressive in the Europa League qualifiers as well, home win should definitely be considered.
Summer signing Kyogo Furuhashi, who scored a hat-trick in the crushing of Dundee, will be one of the men to watch in the home team. Christopher Jullien remains in the recovery room, while Leigh Griffiths faces race against clock to be fit for Saturday’s game. The Saints, on the other hand, have been struggling at the back at the start of the season, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Celtic’s party in Glasgow.
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.

The Scottish club played their first match against Johnstone Britannia on October 6, 1877, winning the game by one goal to nil. St Mirren have a bitter rivalry with Greenock Morton, and there have always been fireworks in clashes between the two clubs.
