Hearts vs Celtic Predictions


Hearts will feel confident of making their presence felt in a likely feisty Scottish Premiership encounter.

I'm confident we will see plenty of goals, so BTTS and over 2.5 goals is my first pick, while I also expect Celtic to claim another Tynecastle victory. 

  • Hearts have seen BTTS in 3 of their last 5 home matches
  • Hearts have seen BTTS and over 2.5 goals in 4 of their last 6 home matches against Celtic
  • Celtic have won 9 of their last 10 away matches against Hearts
  • Celtic have seen BTTS in 5 of their last 6 matches
  • Celtic have seen BTTS and over 2.5 goals in 3 of their last 5 away matches

Head to Head


Celtic hold a dominant advantage in recent matches against Hearts. The Hoops have won 19 of their last 21 games against the Jambos over the past six years. Hearts finally stopped a run of ten successive defeats with a shock 2-0 win at Parkhead in their most recent encounter in December.

At Tynecastle, at least three goals have been scored in eight of their last ten meetings, including Celtic's  4-1 win in September. 

Hearts Form


Hearts come into Sunday's lunchtime kick-off looking to break their two-game winless streak. The Jambos suffered a painful 5-0 defeat at Rangers last weekend before being held to a 1-1 draw against Edinburgh rivals Hibernian on Wednesday.

Stevie Naismith's side had enjoyed a superb six-game winning run before their emphatic beatdown at Ibrox last Saturday.

Unbeaten in their last six league matches at Tynecastle, Hearts remain third in the Premiership, 12 points clear of fourth-placed Kilmarnock. 

Hearts Team News


Hearts picked up no new injury or suspension worries after their midweek Edinburgh derby draw. Head coach Naismith could name the same XI with first-teamers Craig Halkett, Peter Haring, Barrie McKay, and Liam Boyce still sidelined. 

Celtic Form


Celtic enjoyed a profitable week with ten goals scored in vital Premiership victories against Motherwell (3-1) and Dundee (7-1). Brendan Rodgers's boys are now unbeaten in 12 league games since their surprise home defeat against Hearts in December. 

On the road, Celtic have won six and lost just one of their last eight away Premiership fixtures. With only ten games remaining in the race for the Scottish title, the Hoops trail old rivals Rangers by two points. 

Celtic Team News


Head coach Rodgers is likely to retain faith with much of the same XI that scorched Dundee on Wednesday. Cameron Carter-Vickers could earn a recall to the Celtic defence, with the US defender nearing full fitness after a lengthy layoff. 

Verdict

An action-packed lunchtime Scottish Premiership contest is expected in Edinburgh.
 
I'm taking BTTS and over 2.5 goals as a single selection, with Celtic tipped to claim a massive away victory.
