Kilmarnock v Celtic tips: Killie to make it tough for Hoops again

| 22.09.2018

Celtic are back in Ladbrokes Premiership action on Sunday, following Thursday night’s [result] against Rosenborg.

The Hoops face a tough test as they make the 25-mile trip to Rugby Park to face a Kilmarnock side they haven’t beaten in the past three meetings.

Will Killie keep up their fine streak against Brendan Rodgers’ men, or can the visitors get revenge?

Match Odds

In the match betting, Celtic are 4/9 favourites to pick up maximum points in Ayrshire. Meanwhile, a Killie triumph is 6/1, with honours-even available at 16/5.

Having pulled off an impressive 2-0 win at Pittodrie already this term, Steve Clarke’s men will have no fear ahead of this game.

Double Chance: Kilmarnock or Draw is a 13/8 shot, while it’s 19/20 we see Under 2.5 Goals for the fifth head-to-head in succession.

Talking Tactics

The hosts are firmly a 4-4-2 side under Clarke. Their backline is pretty consistent, with Kirk Broadfoot and Stuart Findlay at the heart of the defence.

Meanwhile, the in-form Eamonn Brophy and former Dundee ace Greg Stewart are likely to start up top.

Celtic boss Rodgers has tended towards a 4-2-3-1 in their league outings. Odsonne Edouard will probably lead the line, with Tom Rogic sat behind.

There’s one enforced change, with Olivier Ntcham suspended after seeing red at St Mirren last weekend.

Goalscorer Odds

Leigh Griffiths leads the Anytime Scorer market at odds of 21/20. Edouard finds himself just behind at 11/10, following four goals in all competitions so far this season.

Killie ace Brophy is looking to net for a third game on the spin. He also scored against the Hoops twice during his Hamilton Academical days, and is 3/1 here.

Youssouf Mulumbu grabbed the winner when these sides met at Rugby Park in February 2018, and is 4/1 to repeat the feat Anytime.
