For our latest Scottish Premier League prediction, we’re turning our attention to the clash in Glasgow this Sunday, as Champions Celtic host Motherwell. Read on to find out how to beat the bookies with our best Scottish Premier League betting tips for this match.
Celtic face midweek European disappointment
After having two league matches postponed thanks to defender Bolingoli flouting the Coronavirus rules, the champions returned to winning ways last Saturday with a slender 1-0 away victory over newly promoted Dundee United. However, Niel Lennon’s side slumped to yet another Champions League qualification exit midweek against the Hungarian champions. The Hoops had been hoping to play the game on Sunday in front of 1000 fans as part of a test for the eventual return of fans. However, the move has now been blocked by the Scottish government, meaning they’ll have to wait until mid September at the earliest.
Motherwell off to a bad start
The prolonged off season doesn’t seem to have served Motherwell very well, as Steve Robinson’s side have gotten off to a terrible start this campaign. The Well have picked up just 2 points from their opening 5 games, with draws against Livingston and Hibs bringing their only points so far. This leaves them 3rd from bottom, level on points with the bottom 2. Our Scotland Premiership prediction for this week looks bleak for Motherwell. Having said that, Motherwell will go into this Sunday’s clashed in high spirits following their 5-1 Europa League win against Irish side Glentoran FC.
As most would likely expect, this fixture has highly favoured Celtic in the past. In 55 meetings, the Hoops have won 42 to Motherwell’s 5, while 8 games have ended in a draw. The last time Motherwell managed to take any points off the champions was a 1-1 back in December 2018. To find a Motherwell win, you have to go all the way back to 2015, when the Well snatched a 2-1 win at Celtic Park. You don’t need to be an expert in Scottish Premier League tips to predict a Celtic win this Sunday, however the question is by how many goals.
Below, we’ve provided the results from the past 5 meetings between these sides, as well as 3 statistical highlights that we’ve used to aid us in creating this week’s Scottish premier League Predictions. Celtic look to get 10 in a row back on track again this Sunday.

Our Betting Tip for Today
Having analysed the above information, we believe that an upset looks unlikely at Celtic park on Sunday. Therefore, our Scottish Premier League prediction for this week is a Celtic win.
The Celts look to get this campaign back on Track
After dropping points against Kilmarnock followed by a two game postponement, Celtic looked to have things somewhat back on track, despite crashing out of the Champions League.
The Hoop’s attacking line looks to have benefited from the signing of Swiss striker Albian Ajeti, who carved out a number of chances and scored the only goal in the game against Dundee United. Furthermore Motherwell’s David Turnball has left Motherwell for Celtic ahead of the clash. The Well have only scored in 1 of their 5 games this season, so the chances of them putting one past the champions on Sunday look very slim.
With Motherwell in terrible league form and Celtic looking to bounce back from Champions League disappointment, our betting tip for this match is Celtic to win by 3 or more goals which you can place with SkyBet at odds of 2.2.
