In their penultimate game of the Premiership season, the Hoops will welcome Kilmarnock at Celtic Park on Wednesday.
Celtic have already wrapped up the league title and now they have their sights set on the upcoming Scottish Cup final with Motherwell.
The Celts would like to go in to the final on top of their form, and manager Brendan Rodgers will want his players to keep the momentum going. Following their shock defeat at Hibernian, the Celts have picked up back-to-back wins over Rangers and Hearts.
The league champions are undefeated at home this season, and we don’t expect them to slip up against Killie.
Killie were in great form up until the split of the league. Following the split, a difficult run of games has seen them lose three consecutive games in the league. On the weekend, they lost 1-0 to Rangers at Ibrox Stadium.
Despite their recent failings, Killie have been solid on the defensive front throughout the season and don’t concede too many goals on the road. The recent 5-3 defeat at Hibernian was an exception though.
Killie have done decent against Celtic in the league this season. They managed a 1-1 draw on their previous trip to Celtic Park. They also claimed a 1-0 home win over the champions back in February.
