Dundee Utd stand at the bottom of the table and they are one of the main candidates for relegation. They have managed to win only two games on 21 matches this season. They have the worst attack in league (scored only 18 goals and that’s statistically less than one goal per match), while on the other side they have one of the worst defences in Premiership, conceded 41 goals. Without any doubt, they will be fully motivated to make good result against the best Scottish team in this moment.

Celtic stand at the top of the table and they are the main candidate for the title this season. Visitors have the best attack, while on the other side they have the best defence in league. The second team on the table, Aberdeen have only three points less than Celtic, so team from Glasgow will be fully motivated to take another three points. Their recent performance is not at the high level (only one win in the last three games), so this could be the good chance for them to improve their performance and get back home with three points in their pocket.

Dundee Utd vs Celtic Prediction

Celtic are big favorites to win this game and every result except away win would be a big surprise. I expect better performance by visitors and their easy win.
