Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Celtic will be aiming to build on a hard-fought 2-1 win over Aberdeen when they take on Motherwell at Fir Park on day 9 of the new Premiership campaign. The Hoops are already six points behind league leaders Rangers, meaning that Saturday’s football match is a of big importance for hte visitors.
Captain Callum McGregor should start after he was rested in Scotland’s World Cup qualifier against Faroe Islands, while all James Forrest, Karamoko Dembele, Greg Taylor, Michael Johnston, Josip Juranovic, and Christopher Jullien are likely to miss out with injuries. The Well, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Hearts before the international break, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the title-chasing visitors. Defender Solholm Johansen should be the only absentee in the home team.

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 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.
