Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
All eyes will be on Fir Park when Motherwell and Celtic square off against each other in the Scotland Premiership derby. The Well aim to build on back-to-back wins over Ross County and Livingston, and they are surely brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of Celtic. Tony Watt, who has found his goalscoring touch of late, will be the man to watch in the home team. The Hoops, on the other hand, are eager to melt Rangers’ advantage in the Premiership standings.
This has to go down as a must-win game for the reigning champions, and we are positive that Neil Lennon’s troops will leave their hearts on the field. The likes of Forrest, Johnston, and Jullien are all likely to miss Sunday’s game with injury, but seeing that Lennon can count on key players for the Fir Park showdown, away win should be considered. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be France rising star Odsonne Edouard, who has recovered from coronavirus.

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.
