Reason For St Johnstone vs Celtic Predictions

  • Celtic have kept clean sheets in their last ten meetings with St Johnstone, winning to nil on nine occasions
  • Celtic have won seven of their eight league games this term, conceding a total of just five goals
  • St Johnstone are the lowest scorers in the Scottish Premiership with only four goals scored in nine league games

Celtic are hitting top stride

Celtic’s title pursuit is gathering pace and they should have few concerns recording a seventh straight Scottish Premiership victory at a shot-shy St Johnstone.

Neil Lennon’s Bhoys have dropped only two points from their eight league games this season, conceding just five goals in total, and not even a midweek Europa League trip to Bosnian outfit Sarajevo should deter them at McDiarmid Park.

Interestingly, Celtic have kept clean sheets in their last ten meetings with St Johnstone and they have won nine of those matches.

That doesn’t bode well for the hosts given they are the lowest scorers in the Scottish Premiership with only four goals scored in nine league games.

Callum Davidson’s men sit second-bottom in the standings with only seven points collected from their nine league games.

St Johnstone have lost on six occasions already this term and they have failed to score in all six of those league defeats. Celtic look a good bet to win to nil.

Those looking for a correct score punt should opt for Celtic to record a narrow 1-0 win. St Johnstone have lost four of their six games by that scoreline and the Hoops, who may be below their best having been in action in Bosnia on Thursday, to repeat the dose.
