Celtic vs Hibernian Betting Tips

19 points behind league leaders Rangers, Celtic must pick themselves up for Hibernian's visit on Monday with Neil Lennon´s side looking to build on recent improved performances.

While the 9-times defending champions played well in that 1:0 loss at Rangers, that defeat might be the final nail in the coffin of Celtic´s chances at claiming a 10th successive domestic league title. Having endured a truly horrific run of just 2 wins in 12 matches (all comps), Celtic came roaring back with successive wins over Hearts (on penalties) Ross County, Hamilton and Dundee Utd.

However, despite dominating much of the first half against the league leaders at Ibrox, Celtic was once again undone by ill-discipline following the red card of Israeli makeshift defender Bitton. While they have 3 games in hand on the league leaders, their chances of a 10th successive title would appear to be slim at best.

With Bitton suspended for this match, and French defender Julien ruled out with a long-term knee injury, head coach Lennon will have to put his trust in ailing defender Shane Duffy for the visit of a Hibs side that is certainly capable of causing plenty of headaches for a defence that has managed just 4 clean sheets in their last 14 matches.

Indeed, while Hibs have lost their last 3 league matches, failing to score in all 3, they were unlucky not to beat Celtic when these two sides played out an entertaining 2:2 draw in November, and they have the tools to push Celtic hard in a fixture that seems likely to deliver in the over 2.5 goals market. 4 of the last 5 meetings between these two sides have produced that outcome, and with Celtic still vulnerable defensively, I expect goals in this must-win match for the home side.

Celtic vs Hibernian Correct Score Prediction

With Leigh Griffiths restored to Celtic´s front line, the hosts do seem much more dangerous in attack, but with defensive vulnerabilities remaining, Hibs can score, and I´m calling a 3:1 win for the East of Glasgow giants.
