Celtic welcome the visitors St. Johnstone in the Scottish Football Association Challenge Cup – 1/8 Finals. The match will be held on Sunday, February, 10th, at the Celtic Park (Glasgow).
In a short period of time, Celtic and St. Johnstone register their third clash, and there is nothing that could prevent the champions from advancing to the next FA Cup stage. The hosts ceased allowing goals, which is largely attributed to the streak of the home encounters. The calendar wanted Celtic to play mostly on their soil wherein, despite the great number of injured players, they continue to gain whitewashes. The homeside is certainly predicted to win tomorrow either. Under the odds over 2.0, it is better to bet on the negative handicap rather than trying to predict the hosts’ mood – for some reason, Celtic might want to put little effort in their win. They normally don’t smash their opponents, scoring two or three goals, which is enough. The table placement has settled somehow; the top tier can hardly be taken by any other side.

St. Johnstone demonstrate middle-class performance even in clashes with frugal teams. They are quite good against lower table sides, but they struggle against Celtic, Rangers, Heart of Midlothian, etc. The team’s defense is not bad. But it shouldn’t be a focus in the Sunday Cup fixture. The hosts may shut out and allow less goals indeed. However, their progression to the next stage is impossible.
The winner of the coming clash is very obvious. The question remains about the number of goals that Celtic will score tomorrow. Going by their latest record, we may take a risk and bet on an underscoring outcome. The hosts will net twice, as they usually do, for sure. Will they do more? The main thing is not to score to them, as they will start to down the opponent at once. Under the nice 2.19 odds, we certainly need to try betting on the negative handicap of two goals.
Prediction for the match: Celtic to win with a -2.0 handicap.
