BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW
Last years champions taking on Hamilton this Sunday, looking to get off to a positive start to try and make it ten titles in a row
The Hoops start of their 20/21 campaign this weekend with a home game against the side that finished second from bottom last season. This season is one of the biggest in Celtics history as they look to set a new record of ten titles in a row.
Celtic scored 89 goals last season over thirty games which averages just under three goals per game. With Hamilton struggling so much last season, we fancy this game to finish over 3.5 goals at 20/23 on BoyleSports.
When the two sides met last season, Celtic won on all three occasions, scoring seven goals and conceding two. Lennon’s side will be confident of getting three points on the opening day and getting off to the best possible start.
The Accies were lucky to stay up last season. They finished four point above relegation but there was meant to be eight more games played. This season they will be hoping they don’t need a early finish in order to guarantee their survival.
Last season they were beaten by Celtic on each occasion, but only 2-1 at Celtic Park and down to a last minute goal. They will take confidence from this that they can hold their own against the champions.
Both sides go into the opening game with no suspensions. The only injured player from the two teams is Ross Callachan who has a broken leg and no set return date.
