Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Dundee United and Celtic take on each other at Tannadice Park in the Premiership round 17. Dundee United have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team beating Aberdeen, sharing the spoils with Ross County, while losing to Motherwell in midweek. The Terrors produce much better showings at home than on the travels, and you should know that they have recorded four wins in the previous five home fixtures.
Nicholas Clark is widely expected to replace Declan Glass in the starting XI, while Calum Butcher returns from suspension. The Hoops, on the other hand, are determined to stay in the title race. Celtic are on a four-game winning run on the road, but beating Dundee United at Tannadice Park is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards, and we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw. All Dembele, Jullien, Giakoumakis, and Taylor continue to miss out for the visitors.
Highlighted Player (Calum Butcher):
Calum Butcher is an English midfielder, who was born in Rochford on February 26, 1991. Butcher played for the youth teams of Ipswich Town, Southend United and Tottenham Hotspur and despite being a Spurs player he did not see any game action at senior level during his spell with the White Hart Lane outfit.
The 185-cm-tall midfielder, though, was named as a substitute for Spurs in a 1-1 draw with Shakhstar Donetsk in the UEFA cup back in 2009. Butcher played for the likes of Barnet (loan), Hjorring, Hayes & Yeading United, Dundee United and Burton Albion in the past before joining Millwall on August 25, 2016. He made his debut for the Lions two days after signing for the club, coming as a substitute in a 3-1 victory over Chesterfield.
Butcher scored his first goal for Milwall against Northampton on October 15, 2016. It has to be noted that the midfielder scored two goals in 32 appearances for the Lions in the 2016/2017 Championship campaign.
Highlighted Team (Celtic):
The Celtic Football Club boasts a proud over 100-year long history which has made The Bhoys a global brand thanks to their unprecedented social awareness that dates to the very beginnings of this Scottish club. Celtic was founded in 1887 with the purpose of alleviating poverty in the immigrant Irish population in the East End of Glasgow by raising money to help their fellow citizens.
The charity legacy continues to this day with Celtic still preserving their charitable traditions through the Celtic FC Foundation. The Celts play their home matches at Celtic Park in front of 60,000 people. One of the two most successful football clubs in Scotland with 47 Scottish League Championship titles to their name, Celtic have a long-standing fierce rivalry with Rangers, with the clubs known as the Old Firm.
European Cup winners from season 1966-67 and runners-up two years later, Celtic have been regular in European competitions since their first appearance in 1962-63. Their other most standout results have been runners-up in the EUFA Cup in 2003 and Intercontinental Cup in 1967.
