We are back to club league football action starting this weekend with FRIDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL
Celtic come into this game not in the best of form especially in the league only winning 2 out of their last 4 games. They will be looking to extend their lead at the top of the table which has only a 3 point lead. Celtic will need to rely a lot on their forwards Griffiths and Rogic to help them with their goal scoring exploits, who have scored the maximum goals for them. Celtic had a decent confidence builder last time around with a 3-0 in the Scottish FA Cup, but need to ensure a solid performance tonight.
Their opponents Dundee United have been struggling so far, sitting rock bottom o the table, winning just 1 league game since September. They have struggled defensively conceding on average of 2 goals per game, while netting only 18 goals in 21 games in the league so far. They have a poor record against Celtic losing by an average of a 2 goal margin in their last 6 encounters in all competitions, and one can expect more of that to continue as Celtic travel to meet them on Friday night.
I am backing Celtic to cover the Asian Handicap and beat Dundee United by a 2 goal margin.
