The match

Ross County host Celtic at the Global Energy Stadium for the second round of the Scottish Premiership. The hosts did not kick off the new campaign in positive fashion, losing 2-1 to Hearts. It was nevertheless their first defeat on the back of five straight losses in friendly and league cup games, where Ross County managed to register a clean sheet in three of those wins. The team from the Highlands are also not in their best form on home soil lately, losing three of their last five in front of their own fans. They tend to keep their games relatively tight there however, with seven of their last ten home games ending with Under 2.5 goals. County have a really poor recent tradition against Celtic, losing five of their last six home games against the reigning champions. 

Ange Postecoglou’s Celtic are in great form at the moment. They managed to keep their core relatively intact, not losing any valuable players and rewarding Jota and Maeda with permanent transfers. On the match front, they started the league in great form, beating Aberdeen with 2-0 in a game that extended their unbeaten streak to twelve games. In fact, barring a Cup semi-final defeat to Rangers, Celtic have not lost in their last nineteen games. The visitors tend to give away goals on the road lately however. They have conceded seven in their last three away friendlies, while they only kept two clean sheets in their last seven outings.

Key Statistics

  • Three of Celtic’s last four league games have seen both teams score
  • Celtic have conceded seven goals in their last three away games
  • Ross County have scored in eight consecutive games
  • Ross County have conceded in four of their last six home games

The bet of our experts

Celtic are massive favourites in this one, yet there is little point in backing them at such low prices. Instead, the goals market offers more value, with Celtic presenting some defensive issues during their preseason and with Ross County being adept scorers of late, backing Both Teams To Score appears to be the smartest play in this fixture.
