Celtic Form


Celtic have won four of their last five matches in the Scottish Premiership, but lost the biggest one of them all during that run.

Neil Lennon’s side were in solid form after defeating Kilmarnock, Ross County, Hamilton and Dundee United in successive league matches. They then faced Rangers in the Old Firm Derby and despite dominating for much of the match, lost 1-0 at Ibrox.

Nir Bitton’s red card on the hour changed the momentum of the match in Rangers’ favour, leading to Callum McGregor’s own goal in the 70th minute.

Hibernian Form


Hibernian need a win to put the pressure back on Aberdeen in 3rd after losing each of their last three league matches in the Scottish Premiership.

Their last victory came in a 1-0 home win over St. Mirren, a result which was then followed by a 1-0 loss away to Rangers and a 2-0 defeat at home to Ross County. Things went from bad to worse for Jack Ross’ team when they faced Livingston at Easter Road.

Hibs lost 3-0 after goals from Josh Mullin, Jon Guthrie and Scott Robinson, leaving Livingston home and dry within 47 minutes.

Celtic are without Nir Bitton following his red card last weekend and winger James Forrest to his persistent ankle problem.

Christopher Jullien tested positive for Covid-19 on return from the club's Dubai training camp. Celtic have been told that 13 first-team players must self-isolate.

Manager Neil Lennon and assistant John Kennedy must also isolate which casts doubt on who will line up against Hibs.
