Hearts vs Celtic in the Scottish Premiership on Jan 26. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Hearts vs Celtic in the Scottish Premiership on Jan 26. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

It’s second versus third in the Scottish Premiership on Wednesday night and both Hearts and Celtic head into this one in decent form.

Hearts have won all of their last four games, including a 5-0 thrashing of knockout specialists Auchinleck Talbot in the in the Scottish Cup last weekend. Their league form also shows just one goal conceded in their last three games – all of which were won.

But Celtic’s superb form is on another level. Ange Postecoglou’s side have lost just once in their last 21 matches, a run that stretches all the way back to October. They’ve also won ten of their last eleven games, in a spell that includes a 1-0 victory over Wednesday night’s opponents.

Celtic To Win And Both Teams To Score

Celtic have been particularly impressive on their travels this season, with ten victories in their last 12 matches on the road. Their only defeat in that time came in the Europa League at Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen.

But although they’ve racked up plenty of victories away from home, they haven’t kept too many clean sheets. All of their last four away wins have seen the home side score too, while both teams have scored in eight of their last ten games.

And Hearts are likely to be in a confident mood as far as potential goal scoring is concerned after their 5-0 win at the weekend, and they’ve found the net in seven of their last eight outings.

That said, Celtic should still have enough to take three points back to Glasgow. So, we like the away win and BTTS double at 13/5.

Hearts Form, squad news, opinion

After a rather rotten few years, Hearts appear to be beating again after their instant return to the Scottish top flight, following relegation to the Championship in 2020.

They find themselves in something of a halfway house, sitting comfortably ahead of fourth-placed Motherwell in the table, but nine points behind Wednesday’s opponents.

So only a win will do if they are to have any chance of hitting the dizzy heights of the top two this season, but the pressure is off them at Tynecastle for this one, thanks to their excellent first half of the season.

They’ll have plenty of players going into this one in hot form, with Liam Boyce notching a brace in their cup victory on Saturday, while Josh Ginnelly was also at the double in their last league outing, in a 2-0 home victory over St Johnstone.

Celtic Form, squad news, opinion

It wasn’t the easiest of starts for Postecoglou, after arriving at Celtic Park over the summer, but this side look a much stronger proposition than what was offered under Neil Lennon last season.

They still have work to do to close the gap on city rivals Rangers, but they would’ve taken a four-point deficit at this stage of the season if offered it in the summer, having meekly surrendered the title last season by a whopping 25 points.

Celtic are certainly not back to their best yet, but they continue to get results without playing sparkling football. Cynics would suggest that their lack of clean sheets on the road will catch up with them, but while they continue to outscore opponents, they won’t mind one bit.

An Old Firm Derby is just over a week away, so it’s imperative that they carry on their good form ahead of the visit of Rangers next Wednesday night.

History

The head-to-head stats don’t make for particularly pleasant reading for Hearts, although the same can be said for the vast majority of sides coming up against Celtic.

The Bhoys have won eleven of the last twelve meetings, but the Tynecastle side did win their previous meeting on home soil, in a 2-1 victory in July of 2021.

Goals also tend to be on the menu when these two sides face off. Both teams have scored in three of the last four clashes, while we’ve seen 21 goals in the last five meetings, at an average of more than four goals per game.

About the Venue

Wednesday night’s clash will take place at Tynecastle, where Hearts have only lost once in their last dozen games.

At the time of writing, there are currently no restrictions regarding the attendance of fans at football stadia in Scotland.

Conclusion

Celtic are rediscovering their mojo after a tough 18 months, but against a Hearts side on the crest of a wave, they certainly have to up their game to keep their run going.

But we think that ultimately, their class will show on the night. They have a rather imperious record against their Edinburgh opponents, and with the carrot of selection for next week’s Old Firm, we’re expecting a performance of real purpose from the Glaswegians on Wednesday night.
