Celtic begins the defence of their Premiership title when they welcome Aberdeen to Celtic Park this Sunday.

Unbeaten in their last 25 home league matches with 21 wins achieved during that run since a 2:1 loss to St Mirren back in January 2021, Celtic will be confident of beginning the new season with another home victory.

Celtic vs Aberdeen Betting Tips

Aberdeen, now under the guidance of Jim Goodwin, endured a miserable campaign last season, eventually finishing all the way down in 10th spot, and big improvements will be expected this term with the Dons busy in the transfer market this summer.

Unfortunately, the visitors have a dismal record at this venue, losing 7 of their last 8 visits to Parkhead, including a 2:1 loss at this venue back in November of last year.

While Celtic have dominated this fixture for many years, recent meetings have been at least a bit more competitive, with 7 of the last 10 seeing BTTS while Celtic won by more than 1 goal on only 1 of those last 10 matches.

Ultimately, Celtic should be backed to kick off their season in style and considering recent meetings and the visitor's likely improvements, we expect goals at both ends, with Celtic likely emerging with the winning start they crave.

As such, we´ll take a chance on a Celtic win with over 2.5 goals scored, an outcome witnessed in 6 of Celtic´s last 8 home matches and in each of the last 3 meetings between these sides.
