St. Mirren is welcoming Celtic to St. Mirren Park in the postponed game of round 3 in the Scottish Premiership.
St. Mirren has been solid so far this season, and they are in 7th place with 7 points. Offensively, St. Mirren has been one of the weakest teams in the Premiership so far with only 3 scored goals in 6 games while conceding 8 goals. Obika has scored 2 goals for St. Mirren, while Tait added 1 more goal. Alnwick, Urminsky, and Lyness are all in quarantine due to the Coronavirus. In their latest Premiership match against Hibernian at home, St. Mirren has had 51% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 71% of the correct passes. St. Mirren’s defense was a disaster in this match, and they have lost this match 0-3 at home. St. Mirren was lucky last season because only 1 team was being relegated, and they are doing well so far, but I think St. Mirren will have a tough time winning games if they can’t get their offense going, and their defense is not good enough to compensate for that. I see St. Mirren struggling at the bottom of the table this season.
Celtic was playing in the Champions League qualifications 2 weeks ago against Ferencvarosi, and they have lost that game 1-2, which means Celtic will not be playing in the Champions League this season. In their last 2 games in the Premiership, Celtic has 2 wins alongside 8 scored goals, and 0 conceded goals. In their last match against Ross County on the road, Celtic was the better team with 58% of ball possession, 10 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and 87% of the correct passes. With 2 goals in the first half and 3 goals in the second half, Celtic has won this game 0-5. With 13 points, and still without a loss this season, Celtic is in 3rd place in the Premiership standings. With 15 scored goals and 2 conceded goals in 5 games, Celtic is just behind Ranges by efficiency this season. Edouard has scored 4 goals for Celtic so far, while Ajeti added 3 goals, and Klimala added 2 goals. There are no injuries or suspensions in Celtic as of right now. Celtic has won the title last season with a massive 13 points ahead of Rangers, and with 89 scored goals in 30 games, but they are behind Rangers at this time, but Celtic has 2 games less than Rangers this season. Celtic the best team in Scottish history, and they are the biggest favorites to win the title alongside Rangers once again this season. The fun fact, the last time when some other teams except Rangers or Celtic have won the title was back in 1985 when Aberdeen won the title.
The trends are heavily on Celtic’s side in this matchup, and St. Mirren hasn’t won any of their last 5 games against Celtic. There is only 1 clear choice here, and that is Celtic.
