Reason For Celtic vs Motherwell Predictions

  • Motherwell have lost to nil in three of their five league games this season
  • The visitors have won once in 13 league matches, failing to score on seven occasions
  • Celtic have kept a clean sheet in 16 of their last 20 clashes with Motherwell
  • The hosts have won four of their last five home games by three clear goals

European highs and lows

These two sides had very different weeks in Europe, with Motherwell cruising to a 5-1 win over Glentoran. That has taken them through to the next round of Europa League qualifying, where they will be joined by Celtic.

The Scottish champions were beaten 2-1 at home by Ferencvaros in midweek, which is their earliest exit from Europe’s top competition for 15 years. As a result, they are getting a huge financial hit and could be forced into sales as a result.

Motherwell make slow start

The visitors claimed their first win of the season in that victory over Glentoran, having made a dire start to the new Premiership season. They have produced only two points from their opening five games in the league this term, including three defeats to nil.

Motherwell have had issues hanging over them for a long time in what has been a largely poor 2020. They have won just once in their last 13 league games, failing to score in seven of those. That includes a 4-0 home loss to Celtic back in February.

Celtic can continue dominance

While the champions are out of the Champions League, their domestic dominance is set to continue. They boast an impressive nine game winning streak at home to Motherwell, while they’ve kept a clean sheet in 16 of the last 20 clashes between these two sides. As a result, we’re siding with the hosts in our predictions.

In the league, the Bhoys have won four of their last five home games by three clear goals, scoring five times in three of their last four. They have also won by at least three clear goals in four of their last five meetings with Motherwell, so we expect a high-scoring, comfortable victory for Celtic this week. We’re backing the hosts with a -2 handicap and a 3-0 correct score prediction.
