Football tips: Our super 11/2 Same Game Multi for Kilmarnock v Celtic on Sunday

Can anybody stop The Bhoys doing 10-in-a-row?

Comments

Celtic will look to build on their emphatic opening day win against Hamilton when they travel to Kilmarnock on Sunday.

Neil Lennon’s men are on the cusp of history as they chase a record 10th title in-a-row and will hope to lay down an early marker in their title challenge.

On paper, they should have no trouble breezing past Kilmarnock, a side who Hibs ripped to shreds in the opening half hour on the opening day of the season.

Kilmarnock (+2)

Celtic have also won their last six league encounters with Kilmarnock, including all three fixtures last season, and will be supremely confident of repeating the feat this weekend.

However, they haven’t had it all their own way at Rugby Park in recent times, especially since the addition of a new synthetic turf.

Celtic were made to sweat in February in a hard-fought 3-1 win and endured an even tougher time of it in their previous two encounters in Kilmarnock, winning 1-0 and losing 2-1.

It will not be easy for the nine-time champions on Sunday, and Kilmarnock look a good price with a two-goal handicap.

Odsonne Edouard to score anytime

The Bhoys will still fancy their chances of winning the game and, after all, they have won on their last two visits to Rugby Park, it just might be closer than they would have liked.

With that in mind, a Celtic player is still the most likely option to find the back of the net during Sunday’s clash. The champions have goalscoring potential all over the pitch, but there is one player who stands head and shoulders above the rest.

Odsonne Edouard scored at least double the amount of goals of anyone else in the Celtic squad in the league last season and kickstarted his 2020/21 season in perfect style with a hat-trick in the 5-1 win over Hamilton.

Edouard scored in all three meetings between Celtic and Kilmarnock last season and has a habit of scoring important goals at crucial times. If Sunday’s game proves to be too close to call, Edouard is the man Celtic will look to for goals.

Both teams to score

If previous encounters between Kilmarnock and Celtic tell us anything, we could be in for a hatful of goals on Sunday.

Celtic went goal crazy against Hamilton last weekend, finding the back of the net at their leisure, and look a constant threat going forward. If Kilmarnock defend like they did against Hibs, Celtic will definitely score on Sunday.

Kilmarnock, meanwhile, fought their way back into the game against Hibs through an absolute thunderbolt from Chris Burke and will hope for a similar source of inspiration on Sunday.

They will additionally hope that their habit of scoring in every game against Celtic last season will continue.
