Team News: Celtic
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just the lone fitness concern for the Celtic gaffer Ange Postecoglou to be concerned with from a near full-strength squad. David Turnbull (Hamstring Injury) misses out.
Team News: Hibernian
Out of a mainly full-strength group, there’s only the one fitness worry for the Hibernian boss Shaun Maloney to be concerned with. Harry Clarke (Hamstring Injury) won’t be in action. Ewan Henderson will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We envisage that Celtic should really create enough chances to score more than one when they come up against Hibernian, who might well find it a difficult task getting goals.
Our tip is for a 2-0 victory for Celtic when the full-time whistle blows.
