  • Competition: Scottish Premiership
  • Date: 18th September 2022
  • Kickoff: 11:00 UTC
  • Venue: SMISA Stadium

St. Mirren will welcome champions Celtic for the first time at the SMISA Stadium on Sunday as the clubs clash in the seventh game-week of the Premiership. The 3-0 thumping resulted in St. Mirren's third loss of the season, as they also entered the zone of a negative goal difference this past week. The hosts will have to be at their resilient best, as Celtic come in this game with 6 wins out of 6, and 25 goals scored. But that is not it. Celtic have conceded just once since the season started, and that might just be the best defensive result of any top-flight side, in the entire world (not just Europe). Their only goal conceded had come away from home, so St. Mirren could get their hopes high here. But with the home side scoring just twice in three games, the chances seem to be looking bleaker with every passing moment.

St. Mirren vs Celtic Betting Tips: BTTS-No

This is a clear-cut simple bet of BTTS-No at 1.62 odds (at the time of writing). As we have already spoken about Celtic's record of just 1 goal conceded in 6 games played, they take it a notch higher with their head-to-head numbers against St. Mirren. In the last 4 meetings with this very side, Celtic have not conceded a single goal. But the elite visitors' record of 25 goals scored in 6 games as well as over 2.5 goals seen in 6 of the last 8 meetings, compels us to opt for a 3-0 win for Celtic this weekend. Our final prediction will be a Celtic clean sheet and Over 2.5 goals scored by them alone on Sunday morning.

St. Mirren Team News

Defender Ryan Strain has helped the side stick together due to his fantastic leadership and inspiring individual performances since the season started. Strain not just intercepts 1.3 key passes per game, but is responsible for chance creation too with 2 key passes made every 90 minutes. This has benefited the likes of Jonah Ayunga and Curtis Martin, who have combined to produce 5 goals and assists in totality. It is good to see a side like St. Mirren using their forwards well, as Ayunga and Martin's goals amount to 5 of the 6 goals scored this season by Sunday's hosts. Strain, Ayunga and Martin will be our three St. Mirren players to watch.

Celtic Team News

If we keep the numbers aside for a moment, Celtic defender Stephen Welsh has been nothing but outstanding in the champions' run of 5 clean sheets from 6 games played. He is probably the best player across all positions in the Premiership, which speaks volumes about his innate talent. Forward Jota still leads the race for the top-goal contributor race with 8 goals but Liel Abada is not behind with 7 contributions himself. The duo has combined for 17 of 25 Celtic goals scored this season in domestic competitions. Midfielder Matt O'Riley has been the creative star of this side, with an astonishing 3.2 key passes per game, which is the best in the league right now. Welsh, Jota, Abada and O'Riley will be our four Celtic players to keep an eye on, this Sunday.
