📏 Form Guide

Kilmarnock LLLDLL 📉

Kilmarnock will be looking for an improved result here following a 2-1 Premiership loss in their previous game against Hibernian.

In that game, Kilmarnock had 56% possession and 12 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. The only player to score for Kilmarnock was Chris Burke (44'). Hibernian got 11 shots on goal with 3 of them on target. Martin Boyle (5', 34') scored for Hibernian.

Matches involving Kilmarnock have proved to be absorbing encounters of late with high scoring the rule rather than the exception. Over their past six clashes alone, the sum of 22 goals have gone in for both sides combined (at an average of 3.67 goals per game) with 8 of these coming from Killie. Nonetheless, we must now wait to see whether that pattern shall be sustained in this next match.

Taking a look at their past results, Kilmarnock:

  • have not won against Celtic in their previous 6 league games.
  • have not won at home in their last 2 matches in the league.

Celtic WLWDWW

Celtic will go into this match following a 5-1 Premiership win to defeat Hamilton Academical in their most recent match.

In that game, Celtic managed 80% possession and 25 attempts on goal with 15 on target. For Celtic, the goalscorers were Odsonne Édouard (20', 49', 53'), Jeremie Frimpong (31') and Patryk Klimala (90'). Hamilton Academical had 7 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. Scott Martin (34') was the scorer for Hamilton Academical.

Indicating their appetite for eventful matches, we’ve seen goals 24 times in the prior 6 matches in which Celtic have taken to the pitch, giving a mean average of 4 goals each clash. Opposing teams have got 7 of those goals.

Pre-game facts show that Celtic:

  • haven't been beaten by Kilmarnock in away games against them for the last 2 league matches.
  • are unbeaten in their previous 10 league matches away from home. What a good run they have put together.

👥 Head to head

Checking on their past head to head meetings going back to 08/12/2018 tells us that these encounters have not been happy ones for Kilmarnock. They’ve not managed to register any wins whatsoever whereas Celtic have been dominant against them, finishing as winners in 100 per cent of those ties.

A combined total of 20 goals were yielded between them in these games, with 4 of them from Killie and 16 for The Bhoys. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 3.33.

The previous league fixture between these sides was Premiership match day 28 on 23/02/2020 and the score finished Celtic 3-1 Kilmarnock.

The match was refereed by Kevin Clancy.

📰 Team News: Kilmarnock

There’s just a single fitness concern for the Kilmarnock gaffer Alex Dyer to contend with due to a largely intact set of players. Jake Eastwood (Thigh Problems) will miss out.

🗞️ Team News: Celtic

Owing to a completely injury-free squad available to choose from, Celtic boss Neil Lennon has zero fitness concerns to speak of coming into this clash.

🧠 Prediction

In this match, Kilmarnock have the capability to find the back of the net against this Celtic outfit, but one goal isn’t likely to be as many as the goals that they could concede.

We can see both teams to score in a 1-2 victory for Celtic at the end of the 90 minutes. It will be interesting to see how this one goes.
