Celtic bounced back from their Europa League exit with a resounding 2-0 win at Aberdeen in the Premiership last Sunday.
The Hoops will be busy this midweek too as they host Dundee at Celtic Park on Wednesday evening.
The win over the Dons was much needed for the champions as they were without a win in their last two games. A failure to pick up three points would most definitely have rung alarm bells in the league race.
However, Celtic still enjoy a healthy nine-point lead at the top, and they can strengthen their position at the top with a win over ninth-placed Dundee.
Dundee come into this game following a 1-0 home defeat to Motherwell. They find themselves in the ninth position with 28 points, which gives them a four-point buffer above Partick Thistle, who are eleventh.
Dundee have lost four of their last five games, and we don’t expect them to cause an upset on Wednesday. They also don’t have a decent record at Celtic Park, and they have lost five of their last six visits to this stadium.
Both sides have played each other thrice this season – twice in the Premiership and once in League Cup. The Hoops have won all three goals without conceding a goal.
