Our Prediction:

Celtic will win

Celtic – Partick Match Prediction | 25-09-2019 14:45

For that reason alone Im backing Celtic to win to nil, seeing as their defence has something to prove and a game like this could serve to prove everyone wrong. Celtic are clearly the obvious favourites to win this tie, and theres no mystery as to why that is. I also think that the scoreline will be a moderate one, so backing the game to have Under 2.5 goals is a good bet to make, with a 2-0 score on my mind also. Their midweek fiasco will have the club questioning whether theyve still got what it takes to do as well as they know they can- but the Hoops will more than likely have no problems.

This makes odds of 8/11 for Celtic to Win to Nil look a good bet, so Im backing that along with a 3-0 correct score predictions at 11/2. Away from home they look good too, but they are lacking something in attack. They have only lost six away games this season but have failed to score in five of them, and theyre facing a Celtic side who have kept eight clean sheets in their last ten home matches.

Celtics main goal for the season should be retaining the league for an 8th consecutive time, and after that they can focus on their potential Treble Treble. Brendan Rodgers will be disappointed with the outcome, but knowing what the managers like, hell solely focus on bringing in some much-needed players to the club to be able to maintain the dominance in the national tournaments and to reinforce the squad for the potential European ties ahead. However, some serious issues need to be resolved in the club, most of all their on-pitch performances- so what better way to bounce back than beating Partick Thistle in their first League Cup game of the season?

Partick Thistle vs Celtic Head-to-Head Stats

Were backing goals in this game. Over 2.5 goals is available at 4/5 withBet365. Both sides have looked leaky at the back in recent weeks, with Partick shipping seven goals in their last two outings and Hearts failing to keep a clean sheet in any of their last three games. The hosts have legendary striker Kris Doolan at the spearhead of their attack but theyll have a job in keeping out the likes of Steven Naismith and Steven MacLean.

The clubs progression is clear to see, and during the first 10 minutes of their match against Falkirk they denied any chance for their opponents to step outside their own half. As the 2nd half began and the match wore on, Thistle were beginning to feel the pressure and were lucky not to concede any goals, and in the first minute of injury time they lost any chance of a clean sheet.Their season performance has been somewhat consistent, but a poor performance on Saturday could see them humiliated against the best team in Scotland. Thistle would score their only two goals in a 5-minute window in the first half. The first goal came from a brilliant run from left-back James Pierce, as his deflected shot sailed past the goalkeeper before Chris Erskine doubled their lead with a thunderbolt into the top corner.

Thistle managed to gain 9 points out of the 12 that were in play, only losing to eventual group winners Ayr United by 2-0. Partick Thistle are set to continue in the League Cup after finishing 2nd in their group in the previous round. Partick Thistle will be looking to return to the Premiership after being relegated at the end of last season when the club failed to maintain their top-flight status when they lost in the play-offs to newcomers Livingston.

The Bhoys did not end the year in style, though, failing to break the deadlock in the Old Firm Derby as they were held to a goalless draw by Rangers on December 30th. Brendan Rodgers men did show their attacking potential in the weekends demolishing win over Brechin in the FA Cup netting as many as five goals past the lower-division opponents.

Partick Thistle vs Hearts Betting Tips

Unfortunately for them, it wasnt meant to be, and the club now face one last round of qualifying if theyre to make into the Europa League group stages. However, after Scott Sinclair was brought on, Celtic managed to pull one back through the Englishman, giving them a mere 15 minutes to equalise and get the goal they so desperately needed. However, Celtic continued to dominate over their opponents, creating chances and converting them into shots on goal, but still they couldnt find the net.

Can they pull off a shock and progress through to the semi-finals with a win here at 24/5 withWilliam Hill. After beating Stranraer and East Fife to reach this stage, former Wigan Athletic boss Gary Caldwell and his team now face a much tougher test in the shape of top-tier Hearts. One bright spot in a rather gloomy season for the Glaswegians has been their two victories in the Scottish Cup to reach the final eight stage.
