The champion Celtic hosts St. Johnstone

The champion Celtic hosts St. Johnstone in a match from the 4th round of the Scottish Premiership. The game is going to be played on Saturday afternoon. Here are our soccer betting tips for this clash.

 

How everyone expected, Celtic started the new season with three wins in a row. Brendan Rodgers’ team beat Hearts, Partick Thistle and Kilmarnock, leading the Premiership standings with 9 points won from 9 possible. Their goal difference at the moment is 7-1 – the best in the country.

 

Their next opponents St. Johnstone are currently 2nd in the league, which is why this game seems really interesting. St. Johnstone also started the new campaign with three wins in a row, beating Kilmarnock, Motherwell and Partick Thistle. Their goal difference is similar to Celtic’s, but just a little bit worse – 7-2.

 

It’s absolutely obvious that Celtic are the clear favourite to win the league once again, especially with Rangers not being the team they were before their financial troubles. It’s hard to say that Brendan Rodgers’ team have a real competitor for the crown. St. Johnstone and Aberdeen started the new season very good – with three consecutive wins, but nobody knows where they would be after just a few months.

 

As for Rangers, they are still not at Celtic’s levels and everyone sees this.

 

Especially at home ground, it’s difficult to bet against Celtic. The champions are ready to clinch another win and enjoy themselves after the Champions League thriller against Astana. They are already in the Champions League’s group stage, so they have the right to celebrate.

 

These were our soccer betting tips for the clash between Celtic and St. Johnstone. It would be really brave to bet against Celtic in this one, especially on their own ground. Good luck, no matter what you have decide!
