Injury-hit Celtic lack intensity to trounce Terrors

Celtic boss Ange Postecoglu was cursing his luck after new striker Giorgos Giakoumakis picked up an injury prior to what should have been his debut game against Raith on Thursday.

Already without Kyogo Furuhashi, Craig Forrest, Greg Taylor, Christopher Jullien and Callum McGregor, Postecoglu was only able to rest his full-backs ahead of this Sunday’s visit of Dundee United.

Celtic’s stuttering form looks largely down to a lack of freshness as tired players attempt to implement a demanding style of play amid an unrelenting schedule.

Furuhashi has been the biggest miss, but two of Celtic’s four defeats in the last six came before he picked up his injury on international duty.

Dundee United have had some mixed results away from home so far this season, but one constant in them has been a lack of goals.

The Terrors have scored once and conceded only twice on their travels this season and their best chance of a result at Parkhead will be to sit in and try to catch their hosts on the break.

Given their record of only one goal from their last five road trips, and Celtic’s five straight home clean sheets in the Premiership, ‘both teams to score – no’ would look to be a good bet.

But the odds are slightly better for Sunday’s game to feature fewer than four goals and we feel this is a safer option because of Celtic’s injuries.

We’re supporting a 2-0 Hoops win because Postecoglu’s side have averaged just over two goals without Furuhashi this season while Dundee United have not conceded more than two in a league game outside Tannadice in more than  18 months.
