Joint top of the table Aberdeen host champions Celtic in Saturday’s early kick-off at Pittodrie in what is always an eagerly-anticipated and keenly-contested affair.
Celtic start as even money favourites to win the match, Aberdeen can be backed at 13/5, whilst the draw is available at 5/2. All odds quoted are available with Betfred.
The Dons have impressed in both their games in the league and won 3-1 away from home against last year’s runners-up Motherwell on Sunday. That result followed a 2-1 victory at home to Kilmarnock on the opening day. New boss Derek McInnes brought in a host of new players over the summer including striker Calvin Zola, and midfielder Barry Robson. Forward Niall McGinn scored two penalties against Motherwell, and the man who finished fourth in the SPL goalscoring charts last season with 20 league goals will be desperate to net against his former side.
Celtic have been busy at the start of the season having competed in four Champions League qualifiers so far. The Hoops went through to the play-off round after narrowly seeing off Swedish champions Elfsborg 1-0 on aggregate. This game is wedged between a round of international fixtures and a long trip to Kazakhstan next Tuesday for Celtic, who may well rest a few players for this fixture. The Parkhead side opened their Scottish Premiership campaign scoring a late winner to clinch a 2-1 win over Ross County at Celtic Park. Anthony Stokes scored both goals against County, and will be a popular bet to score first in what will be a difficult encounter for The Bhoys.
