Celtic will be smarting from their Old Firm derby defeat just prior to the New Year, with that result allowing bitter Glaswegian rivals Rangers back into the title picture.
However, with 16 wins from their previous 17 outings (as the exception came when fielding a second string side in the Europa League having already won the group), there should be no doubt as to the outcome here.
Indeed, the Hoops have won the past seven League or Scottish Cup tournaments following their victory over Rangers in the former just last month.
Celtic To Win To Nil
That means they’ve won a whopping 30 of 31 unbeaten games since 2016/17 in domestic cup action, being taken to extra time just once, while they kept 23 clean sheets across these matches. Of the eight teams to score past them, just two were outside the top flight at the time of the encounter.
Further of those 30 victories in domestic cup competition, there were also 23 matches that saw them triumph by two or more goals, as well as 16 that saw them win by a minimum of three clear strikes.
Given that of the eight fixtures where they failed to win by more than the single goal, half came against Rangers or Aberdeen, we’d also back them to cover the handicap.
Celtic -2 Handicap
After suffering relegation in 2017/18, Partick Thistle finished sixth in a 10-team league in the second tier last term, while the current campaign sees them all the way down in ninth place.
Given that three of their last four defeats have come by either 4-1 or 5-1 scorelines, we’d be prepared to push the boat out further a little further and suggest the visitors should cover the -2 handicap, even if Neil Lennon, as expected, elects to rotate his squad.
