League One leaders Dunfermline face a tricky Challenge Cup tie on Tuesday when they take on Celtic B at East End Park.

The home side have enjoyed an excellent season so far in Scotland´-s third tier, 5 points clear of the pack with 32 points from 15 matches completed. 

Pushing for a return to the Championship, now the Pars face Celtic´s B team, currently 7th in the Lowland Amateur league, equivalent to Scotland´s fifth level.

Dunfermline vs Celtic B Betting Tips: BTTS/Over 2.5 goals

Strong at home, Dunfermline are unbeaten in 15 League One matches, however, they have drawn 5 of their 10 most recent home matches and are prone to conceding with 5 of their last 6 at East End Park seeing BTTS.

While operating at a higher level than the visitors, Celtic´s B team are certainly capable of scoring, having banged in 19 in their last 7 away matches, albeit at a lower level.

Still, in a cup competition like this, anything can happen, and goals should be expected with both sides used to operating on the front foot.

Celtic have also seen BTTS in 5 of their last 7 away matches, while 8 of their 9 most recent matches have seen over 2.5 goals scored, and we expect another entertaining affair in Fife come Wednesday.

The visitors arrive at this stage of the Challenge Cup, having edged past Albion Rovers with a 3:2 road victory earlier this season. Given their recent away form, more goals should be expected, and we´re taking both the BTTS and over 2.5 goal picks for this Challenge Cup contest.
