A week to forget for the big two!

Following Europa League defeats in their opening group games for both Rangers and Celtic, they followed up that disappointment with neither taking maximum points from their next 2021/22 Scottish Premiership games.

Can they get back to winning ways this weekend?

We’re back with our next set of Scottish Premiership predictions…

Scottish Premiership 2021/22 Preview | Weekend Games

Just when Ange Postecoglou seemed to be settling into his role at Celtic, back-to-back defeats against Real Betis in the Europa League and previously winless Livingston in the Scottish Premiership will be raising fresh doubts.

Bhoys fans are not accustomed to seeing their team sitting halfway down the table, and with the defeat to Rangers still fresh in their minds from last month the manager can’t afford any more slip-ups.

Dundee Utd are the visitors to Celtic Park on Sunday, fresh from a derby win over Dundee. The Tangerines have based their performances this season on being hard to beat, scoring just three and conceding four in their six league games to date.

However, recent history suggests their defence will face a stern test here, with Celtic winning the last six home games by an aggregate score of 24-2.

It’s 9/10 for Celtic to continue that dominance and score 3 or more goals.

Though Rangers top the table, they also came unstuck in Europe, losing 2-0 at home to Lyon. They followed that with a 1-1 draw at home to Motherwell, despite dominating their opponents for much of the match.

Steven Gerrard’s men travel on Saturday to a Dundee side who are struggling with the step-up to the Scotland’s top tier. Winless after six games, James McPake knows this will be a tough call for his first three points of the season. However, a glimmer of hope lies in the last three meeting of these teams at Dens Park; two wins for Dundee and a draw. Dundee to avoid defeat again is 73/25.

David Martindale proved justified in playing Andrew Shinnie as an out-and-out striker against Celtic, with the 32-year-old scoring the only goal as Livingston picked up their first win of the season to move off the bottom.

They travel to an unbeaten Hearts who have drawn three of their last four matches. In their most recent stalemate Robbie Neilson’s side were thwarted by a man-of the-match performance from rookie Ross County keeper Ashley Maynard-Brewer which stopped them taking full points.

Livingston will be happy to take a point here and recent form suggests there will be little between the sides, with four of their last six meeting ending tied. Another draw here is 57/20.

Motherwell remain unbeaten since the opening week of the season; form which continued when taking a point at Ibrox last Sunday. Graham Alexander will be looking to consolidate their place in the top six after ending last season in the relegation section after the table split.

They host a Ross County side still looking for their opening win of the season. The Staggies will be buoyed though by their performance in holding Hearts to a 2-2 draw, a match full of attacking intent and goalmouth action. However, their defence has been the most porous in the division to date and Motherwell can expose these frailties at Fir Park.

A 2-0 win for Motherwell can be backed at 63/10.

Sunday’s action starts in Paisley, with St Mirren hosting Aberdeen. The Dons come into this match in a poor run of form, winless in four and back-to-back defeats without scoring. You have to go back to the 2012/13 season to find the last time they finished outside the top 4, and Stephen Glass will know their current mid-table position must improve.

The Buddies also need to find a winning formula, having drawn four and lost two of their opening six games. They can draw encouragement from taking a point away at Hibs in a 2-2 draw, breaking a run of three matches without scoring.

St Mirren have won one and drawn two of the last three meeting between these sides at the SMiSA Stadium and they are 191/100 to take all three points here.

The weekend action concludes at Easter Road with unbeaten Hibernian looking to get back to winning ways after successive draws.

Visitors St Johnstone will be no pushovers though, fresh from their first win of the season at Aberdeen. That was Callum Davidson’s first match since being rewarded with a new four-year-deal and he can take encouragement from the fact his Saints team have beaten Hibs in their last four meetings, including the Scottish Cup Final earlier this year.

With both sides hard-to-beat this season, another draw here at 62/25 could be value bet.
