Celtic News and Form
Celtic had been on a sixteen match undefeated streak of league form before their loss against Rangers last weekend. That was a 2-0 loss at Ibrox which they suffered. While that was their fifth away defeat of the season, they remain unbeaten in the Premiership on home soil, posting a W16 D2 record at Celtic Park. In their home campaign, this season Celtic have produced an average of 2.4 goals per game. They have conceded just the six goals on home soil this term.
In total that is a clean sheet in 72% of their home games which Celtic have earned. They have won 61% of their home fixtures to nil. Of their sixteen home wins, eleven of them have been by a margin of at least two goals. You imagine that they will be looking for a big final flourish in the league on the weekend. They still do have the FA Cup final to look forward to. That will be against Hearts on May 25th.

Hearts News and Form
After starting the season so strongly where they were top of the pile for the first twelve rounds of action, it has all gone a bit sour for Hearts. They are in a pretty big slump at the moment with just the one point earned from their last six league games. Their overall away form for the season is W7 D2 L9. On their top-flight travels, they have averaged just over a goal per game, while they have conceded at an average of 1.7 per game.
Hearts have failed to pick up a clean sheet in any of their last eight league games and in none of their last four on the road. Hearts have picked up one point form their last three away games, scoring just the two goals in that sequence of games. Of their seven away wins record this season, five of them were by a one-goal margin. Six of their nine away defeats have been by a margin of at least two goals though. With just four points from their last eight games, they probably are already just trying to plan forward for the FA Cup final.

Who will win – Celtic v Hearts Predictions
This should be fodder for Celtic here. Hearts won’t have any interest in this and may well try and keep some cards close to their chest and rest some players ahead of the FA Cup final. This is meaningless to them. Celtic to win to nil.
