Hibernian v Celtic | Scottish Premiership preview

Odsonne Edouard - Football Hitz

Celtic travel to Easter Road to face Hibernian in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday. The Hoops could seal the title with a win and are big favourites to get the job done.

Hibs will be desperate to prolong the inevitable and could throw a spanner in the works given their fine home form, but the Bhoys have dominated this fixture in the past and are keen to claim the league crown as soon as possible.

Neil Lennon’s Hibernian side are fourth in the Scottish Premiership with 59 points from 33 games, boasting three wins and two draws from their last five outings. The hosts have won their last five at Easter Road and have lost just one of their last 14 games overall.

As for the visitors, Brendan Rodgers’ side are top of the table with 75 points this season, coming off the back of four wins and three draws from their last seven. The Hoops have been in fine form on the road too, boasting three wins and one draw from their last four away outings, and haven’t lost to Hibs since 2012.

From their last nine head-to-head meetings in all competitions, Celtic have won six and drawn three, and should have enough to get over the line at Easter Road to seal back-to-back titles under Rodgers.
