Celtic make a return to Celtic Park for a key clash with Aberdeen this weekend. This will be the first home game for Celtic since the Europa League encounter against Rosenborg. Interestingly, Celtic and Aberdeen are separated by just one point coming into the game but both clubs do not find themselves near the top. Instead, Celtic and Aberdeen find themselves on the edge of the play-off places after a disappointing start to the campaign. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Celtic suffered a second league defeat of the campaign as the team felt to a 2-1 loss against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park. The result leaves Brendan Rodgers’ men with just one away victory in the last five league games. Celtic did recover to get a late win over St Johnstone in the Scottish League Cup.
Aberdeen knocked out Hibernian on penalties in order to reach the semifinals of the League Cup. Previously, the club had a narrow 1-0 win over Motherwell during the weekend.
Aberdeen picked up a surprising 1-0 win over Celtic at Celtic Park back in May. This was Aberdeen’s first away win over Celtic since 2014. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Celtic.

Aberdeen are at a huge price of 8.00 despite having picked up a win at Celtic Park only in their recent visit. Furthermore, Derek McInnes has seen his team go unbeaten in the last three games across all competitions. Celtic’s biggest hindrance this season has been away form with the team only managing one win in five on their travels. It is a different story with regard to games at Celtic Park, as the hoops have a 100% record. Celtic have traditionally excelled in home games against Aberdeen and our preview would go with a home win.

Celtic vs Aberdeen draw odds: 4.75
Aberdeen win odds: 8.00
Correct Score odds
Aberdeen have not exactly shined with regards to the goalscoring department this season and Celtic are also no better on this front. In fact, the decline from the hoops is quite surprising since the team averaged almost two goals per game last season. It is now down to a goal per game. Our correct score prediction would go with the 1-0 win for Celtic.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The Celtic outfit have witnessed some tight matches in recent times and they required a last-gasp winner against St Johnstone in the midweek League Cup meeting. It may be the story of the match, as Aberdeen do not score a lot of goals – especially at Celtic Park. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Leigh Griffiths came up with the winner against St Johnstone and the form of the striker is proving to be crucial for Brendan Rodgers’ men in this difficult period. Griffiths has been able to score in six out of his last nine games against Aberdeen. Our first goalscorer prediction would back the 28-year-old.
