Tip St Johnstone - Celtic

Prediction published on December 24, 2021 at 11:14 AM - Modified on December 24, 2021 at 12:49 PM

St Johnstone play host to Celtic in this Matchday 20 encounter at McDiarmid Park. The hosts are last on the table with 14 points while Celtic are 2nd with 42 points. The Saints are almost certain to face the chop as they have lost six successive league matches and seven in a row across all competition. They now try to arrest their woeful run but come up against a team in great form. St Johnstone have just the single win at home in 10 matches with six losses and three draws. They have lost their last eleven home matches against Celtic dating back to 2016 when they won 2-1. Their biggest problem at home has been their lack of goals scoring just eight goals in ten matches at an average of under a goal a match. Their last win in the league was in October when they won away to Dundee United.

Celtic are on a fantastic run and are unbeaten in their last 13 league games with three draws and ten wins. This great run though isn’t enough to be top as they trail defending champions Rangers by 6 points. Celtic have only lost once in their last 19 matches across all competitions with that loss coming against Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League. The league title is once again a two horse race as the third team are a massive 9 points behind them. Celtic know anything less than three points will not be good enough as Rangers will punish any slip ups and extend their lead.
