Celtic failed to take their chances midweek against Copenhagen, but having dominated their opponents for large parts of the game, we doubt this encounter will turn out the same way.
Neil Lennon’s men have won 23 of their past 24 domestic games, with the exception against Rangers, but while they kept clean sheets in eight of the first 11, the subsequent 13 have produced just five shutouts.
Celtic To Win And Both Teams To Score
Celtic haven’t conceded a goal in their past nine encounters with St. Johnstone, netting 30 times as they won all but the second game in this spell, with the last three meetings featuring a 15-0 aggregate scoreline.
However, that run of clean sheets has to end sometime and given Celtic have kept just four from 11 away in the league, winning despite conceding in four of the last six, we can see the hosts’ registering a consolation effort.
Indeed, fellow bottom-half outfits Ross County, St. Mirren, Kilmarnock and Hamilton have all met the same fate against the Hoops since December.
St. Johnstone have done well of late as they’ve won three of six unbeaten games since a defeat to Celtic at the end of January.
Clean sheets have been in short supply with one in nine now, but they are at least causing teams problems as they’ve bagged 11 goals during their current unbeaten run.
They’ve only twice failed to score in 12 home games dating back to October, netting at least twice in five of the last six of those and a total of seven across their past three.
Stevie May To Score Anytime
That includes two when hosting Rangers on Sunday from Callum Hendry and Stevie May, with those two both in fine form as they’ve scored a combined seven goals over this period.
May lost his way at Aberdeen but is amongst the goals once again back with St. Johnstone, and actually now has five in his last eight in all competitions when excluding a five-minute cameo versus Motherwell.
He was happy to put in the work rate last weekend as per usual to harass Rangers’ backline, and so any slip-ups like the one by Jozo Simunovic midweek are likely to be punished. At the prices, he looks worth a small stab.
