Celtic To Sneak It

Live on Skysports 4: Sun 12.45: Celtic are 1/3 favourites with against Dundee United, but the Terrors could run them close.

The last time Dundee United won at Celtic Park was New Year’s Day way back in 1993 but the Terrors have nevertheless been a thorn in the Hoops’ side in recent seasons, grabbing a share of the spoils on seven of their last ten visits to Parkhead.

As all of the pressure is on Neil Lennon’s title hopefuls as the pair renew hostilities, some might fancy United at 4/1 with Coral to sneak yet another draw in Celtic’s backyard but the Hoops, 1/3 favourites, are so strong defensively at the moment that they should just about edge it.

Lennon’s defence has kept clean sheets in the last five games, a run they are 20/21 with Partybets to extend and Stan James make Celtic 23/20 to win ‘to nil’. Meanwhile, with Peter Houston’s troops set to run the hosts close, punters could do worse than throw a few quid at a 1-0 victory for the Hoops at 7/1 with William Hill.

The gritty Terrors can keep things tight enough in the early stages to ensure Paddy Power’s tempting 10/11 for the game’s first goal to go in after the 23rd minute is a winner and indeed the visitors can get to the interval on level terms, so a case can be made for Ladbrokes’ 7/2, chalked against a home win after a drawn first half.

Celtic have scored six times against United this season, three of those goals arriving courtesy of Gary Hooper and it’s no surprise to see the Hoops striker installed as the 11/4 favourite by Betfred to break the deadlock. However, Joe Ledley’s absence could open the door for Kris Commons, who was devastated to be left out of the starting line-up for last week’s Old Firm showdown and feeling he has a point to prove, the attacker catches the eye at 9/2 with bet365 to breach the Terrors rearguard to open the scoring.

Recommended Bets:
Celtic to win ‘to nil’ – 23/20 (Stan James)
First goal in Celtic v Dundee United after 23rd minute – 10/11 (Paddy Power)
