Scottish Premiership: Weekend preview

After two poor Champions League campaigns came to an end in midweek, Celtic and Rangers will turn their attention firmly back on domestic duties this weekend.

As the Scottish Premiership title race continues, both sides are battling for points before the break for World Cup 2022 in Qatar.

Johnson eyeing Dons' response

OddsAberdeen 13/8, Draw 23/10, Hibernian 13/8

Lee Johnson's Aberdeen were flying after three wins on the bounce before a 4-1 defeat at Rangers last time out.

The former Bristol City boss has been moving the Dons in the right direction of late and they should be confident of getting back to winning ways on Friday night.

Hibernian earned a comfortable 3-0 win over St Mirren last time out, but before that they had gone on a three-game losing streak.

Having been beaten by the likes of Dundee United and St Johnstone in that run, Hibs have undone much of their good work earlier in the season.

Just one point separates Hibs and Aberdeen in third and fourth respectively in the table.

However, it's the Dons who are the side making progress in recent weeks and Johnson's troops look to be good value at 13/8 to earn the three points on home soil.

A long afternoon in store for United

OddsCeltic 1/10, Draw 9/1, Dundee Utd 22/1

From facing Real Madrid last time out to Dundee United on Saturday, Celtic are back to the bread and butter of the Premiership this weekend.

With no European football for the remainder of the season, Ange Postecoglu and his players will be fully focused on making sure they land back-to-back Scottish titles this season.

Dundee United are on a miserable run of form, without a win in their last four games in all competitions.

Two wins in their last nine games makes for poor reading for United manager Liam Fox, who will be hoping his Terrors' side can stay in the game against the reigning champions this weekend.

United have scored in seven of their last eight games in all competitions, so with that in mind, Celtic are 8/5 to win and both teams to score.

With Celtic looking primed for three points on Saturday, there is likely to be added pressure on Rangers to get a win at St Johnstone on Sunday.

Gers became the first side to lose all of their group games in the Champions League, with Giovanni van Bronckhorst's side only scoring two goals over the six games.

Rangers will be determined to give their supporters something to cheer about this weekend, as they look to continue their positive Premiership form.

The Light Blues do have a strong record against St Johnstone, having gone unbeaten against the Saints in their last 15 games.

Gers are eyeing a fifth consecutive win against St Johnstone this weekend and are 10/11 to be leading at both half-time and full-time at McDiarmid Park.

Mid-table battle in the capital

WhatHearts v Motherwell

When15:00, Sunday 6th November 2022
OddsHearts 19/20, Draw 13/5, Motherwell 14/5

Sunday also sees sixth-place Hearts host seventh-place Motherwell in a mid-table encounter at Tynecastle Park.

Hearts secured a 2-1 win at Ross County in their last Premiership game to end a four-match winless run in the league.

It's a similar story for Motherwell, who were on a four-game losing streak before winning last time out at Dundee United.

In a clash between two sides struggling for consistency, this might well be a low-scoring affair in Edinburgh, with 1/1 available for under 2.5 goals in the game.
