Scottish Premiership Action: Celtic Meets DundeePublished May 1, 2015 by Amir G
Scottish Premiership leader Celtic host Dundee FC in a bid to entrench yet another title win (19:45 UK time).
Glasgow's Celtic Park is the venue for this Friday night fight at the top of the Scottish Premiership, as table leader Celtic host Dundee (19:45 UK time). In head-to-head stats between these teams, Celtic is the clear favorite with a sheet full of victories against the guests.
Holding the top of the Premiership table with 82 points, Celtic can feel confident enough as the only team that can challenge them, Aberdeen, is 8 points away. Still, Celtic cannot afford to lose any points now as the tide could turn quickly if they do.
The team's aspirations for a treble were squandered following a 3-2 loss to Inverness Caledonian Thistle at the Scottish Cup semi last week, but they've managed to pick up the pace at the league with a 1-2 victory over Dundee and 0-3 against Dundee United. Given the positive statistics Celtic has against Dundee and also considering they beat them just a week ago, it's fair to predict that Celtic will take the three points today.
Dundee sits at the bottom of the Premiership's top with 44 points composed of 11 wins, 11 draws, 12 losses and a GD of -2. Things are not looking too sharp as the team faces the strong Celtic away from home today, after three consecutive losses – one that included the 1-2 home defeat to Celtic itself.
Set to miss precious striker Greg Stewart who is out due to a red card, Dundee's offense will miss the wildcard that could keep odds of bringing about a giantkilling, it's hard to see Dundee not losing this one.
