Celtic suffered a surprise defeat hosting Norwegian outfit Bodo/Glimt on Thursday, ending a nine-game winning streak, but they should feel confident of return to winning ways against second-from-bottom Dundee.
The last time they suffered a loss, which also came in Europe to Leverkusen, the Hoops bounced back emphatically with a run of 16 wins from 17 unbeaten games.
In the league alone, Celtic have won 17 of 19 unbeaten games since the start of October, including 13 of the last 14. On home turf, they’ve won 15 of 18 league games since the start of February, registering clean sheets in 13 of those victories, which includes win to nil results in each of the last five at Parkhead.
Despite the excellent form that Celtic have displayed in recent months, Ange Postecoglou has had to contend with a lengthy list of absentees.
However, those issues are largely clearing up, with midfielders Yosuke Ideguchi and David Turnbull, as well as forwards Albian Ajeti and Kyogo Furuhashi the only ones confirmed to miss out or doubts for this clash.
Celtic To Win To Nil
Dundee may only have lost once in six matches now (W3-D2-L1), though even back-to-back victories couldn’t spare James McPake the sack.
It’s also worth noting that this sequence of results included a pair of cup wins over third-tier outfits Dumbarton and Peterhead, and in the league alone, they’re a poor W1-D2-L7 since early December.
Perhaps even more worryingly, Dundee hold the worst record on the road in this season’s Premiership, picking up just eight points from 13 appearances (W2-D2-L9), as well conceding a league-high 24 goals.
That includes a 6-0 hammering dished out by Celtic in early August, as well as a 3-0 loss at Ibrox to Rangers, while Celtic have now kept clean sheets in eight of nine clashes with Dundee in all competitions since 2017/18.
