Matches featuring Celtic have tended to be lively encounters recently with high scoring being a real hallmark. Over their past half dozen games, the sum of 21 goals have been recorded for both sides combined (at an average of 3.5 goals per game) with 13 of these belonging to Celtic. We will just have to see if that trend will end up being continued on into this next match.
Taking a look at their past results, Celtic:
- are unbeaten in the league by Aberdeen in their previous 12 games. Quite a long unbeaten run against them.
- are unbeaten in their previous 12 home league matches. A run that they'll hope to extend here.
Following on from suffering a loss in their previous game against Dundee United in Premiership action, Aberdeen and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
In that game, Aberdeen had 62% possession and 12 attempts on goal with 4 on target. Dundee United had 8 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. Ian Harkes (80') scored for Dundee United.
The numbers tell their own story, and Aberdeen have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 8 goals overall. In defence, Aberdeen have seen their frailties exposed.
A look at their previous results shows us that Aberdeen:
- are winless against Celtic when they have played them away from home in the previous 5 league matches. Not the best of away records.
- have not won away from home in their last 6 matches in the league.
