Dundee United host champions Celtic in this early Saturday's kick-off at Tannadice, with both these teams likely to be high in confidence after scoring last minute winning goals on Wednesday night. United saw off Dumbarton 3-2 in The League Cup, whilst Celtic scored a dramatic winner at Parkhead to beat Shakhter Karagandy 3-0, giving themselves a 3-2 on aggregate win in their Champions League play-off round.
Celtic start as 8/13 favourites to win the match, Dundee United can be backed at 4/1, whilst the draw is available at 3/1. All odds quoted are available with Betfred.
The home side recorded their first victory in the league last weekend by thumping local neighbours St Johnstone 4-0 at Tannadice, with Jackie McNamara's side having taken five points from their opening four games in the Scottish Premiership. Attacking midfielder Stuart Armstrong has scored in his last two league games, and the Scotland u21 international could prove to be a decent bet to score in this game.
Celtic currently sit in second place in the league behind Inverness who have played one game more than the Parkhead side. The Hoops had to come from two goals down to eventually secure a 2-2 draw with Inverness last weekend at Celtic Park, but still remain unbeaten in the league so far.
This fixture last season at saw Celtic concede two stoppage time goals to draw 2-2 in the first game, but Neil Lennon’s side comfortably won 4-0 in their second outing at Tannadice. This game looks set to be a close affair, and I reckon Celtic may just edge victory by just an odd goal.
