Hearts will welcome Celtic to Tynecastle Park for a matchday 23 fixture in Scotland Premiership. The last meeting on 2nd December 2021 ended in a Celtic 1-0 win. Both sides have met thirty-one times in the most recent seasons. Hearts has won 3 matches, and Celtic triumphed in 25. Recent outings average 3.39 goals, while both teams score 48% of the time.
Hearts’s last game in the Scotland Premiership against St. Johnstone at home ended in a 2-0 win. Hearts had more possession of the ball and took advantage of it. Hearts was dangerous in both halves and scored in the 46th and 75th minute.
Celtic’s recent game against Hibernian ended in a home 2-0 win. Although The Bhoys didn’t match their opponent’s intensity and quality while on possession, it was still enough. Celtic put the pressure early on and scored in the 4th and 25th minute.
Since the start of the season, The Famous is more dominant at home. They have seven wins out of 11 games on home soil. Hearts’s good defensive display is key to their success. They didn’t concede in 45% of home games.
Celtic has picked up 16 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. The Celts wins 2.00 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Celtic kept a clean sheet in just 27% of their visits.
The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. The Jambos has won just 64% of home games. On average they score 1.82 goals and concede 0.73 per game. Celtic won their previous away game and I expect more of the same. Their away record looks impressive.
The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. Hearts wins on average 2.18 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against Celtic. My prediction is Celtic to win.
Both sides are dangerous going forward. Hearts has scored in 82% of home games. Celtic is a decent match and has scored in all away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
