Celtic v Hamilton Academical tips: Another three points for Hoops
Few expected Celtic to stumble in their pursuit of the Scottish title and they have failed to disappoint
December 12th, 2016
Celtic’s dominance in the Scottish Premiership this season hasn’t been in the least bit surprising and whilst their European adventure is now over once again, their domestic campaign has already brought its rewards in the form of the Scottish League Cup. Could it be that Celtic will move onwards towards the treble? We see absolutely no reason why not.
Much has been made of the fact that Rangers are back in the top flight and whilst the Gers are sitting second in the table, Celtic enjoy an eight point gap over their bitter rivals as well as enjoying three games in hand. Indeed should the Hoops win all of these outstanding matches they would enjoy a huge seventeen point lead over Rangers and that is assuming that Mark Warburton’s men don’t drop points in their upcoming matches.
Celtic’s 4-1 battering of Partick Thistle at the weekend extended their unbeaten run in the Premiership and with two points dropped from their fourteen matches to date this season, Brendan Rodgers will be in doubt that the title is becoming more and more likely as the weeks pass, even at this early stage of proceedings.
Will anyone be going against the Hoops on Tuesday evening? We certainly won’t be, given that visitors Hamilton Academical have secured a mere two victories in the top flight this term with their last five games each ending all-square. This certainly isn’t the kind of form the team wants heading into their biggest test of the campaign so far. The Hoops are pretty unstoppable at the moment and we have no reason to believe that an upset will be on the cards this week.
