Celtic v Rangers: Everything points to Dembele doing the damage

| 12.03.2017

Glasgow’s giants will do battle again this Sunday, as Celtic play host to Rangers at Parkhead. And once again, it looks like Hoops hero Moussa Dembele will be the man to make a crucial impact.

The 20-year-old has netted in eight of his last nine outings, and Brendan Rodgers’ men have won on every one of those occasions. So the 4/5 on offer for Dembele to score and Celtic to win looks to be the proverbial ‘banker’.

However, there could also be plenty of value in backing him to net multiple goals in this fixture.

The youngster has recorded a brace or hat-trick in four of his last six games, so the 13/5 for him to score two or more against the Gers looks well-priced, while there’s 11/1 available for the Frenchman to match September’s three-goal haul against the Ibrox outfit.

However, it could take until the second period for the hosts to do the damage. Each of their last two meetings with Rangers have been level at the interval, before the Hoops went on to taste victory. So getting on Half Time/Full Time: Draw/Celtic at 3/1 looks like a good shout.

So the signs point to a triumph for Celtic and Dembele, but plenty of our customers have been backing the evergreen Kenny Miller to find the net. He’s been backed to score anytime by a raft of punters, including a three-figure sum, at odds of 16/5.

In the match betting, Celtic are 4/11 favourites for victory, with 15/2 for Rangers and 15/4 on offer for the draw.
