Celtic are just a win away from the league trophy, and they will be eager to wrap up the title at Easter Road on Saturday. However, it won’t be an easy task to pick up all points against an in-form Hibernian side.
Neil Lennon’s men are undefeated in the league since the last week of January – a run of nine games without a defeat. Ironically, their last defeat came at Celtic Park, but the Hibs would fancy their chances at home.
The hosts currently occupy the fourth spot with 59 points, only three points behind Rangers and Aberdeen. It has been a remarkable achievement for them, but can they make inroads into the top-three?
The Hibs did not play last weekend, so they will come on the back of a two-week break. In their last game, Hibs could only manage a 1-1 draw at Ross County. However, they are on a five-game winning run at Easter Road.
The Celts thumped their arch-rivals Rangers in the semi-finals of Scottish Cup last weekend. They are set to play Motherwell in the final of the cup in May.
Brendan Rodgers’ men are well on course to complete a treble, and they can lift their second trophy of the season this weekend. However, they have been inconsistent on the road in the recent weeks,
Both sides have already faced each other four times this season – thrice in the league, and once in the League Cup. A couple of league meetings ended in 2-2 draws, but the Hoops managed to win the other two games.
