Dundee vs Celtic

, KO: 15:00 Apr 28, 2024, Dens Park

CELTIC turn their attention back to the title race after last weekend's epic Scottish Cup semi final penalty shootout success against Aberdeen with a trip to face Dundee on Sunday.

And they had better pay attention at how hard title rivals Rangers found their visit to Tayside on their last game before the split where they struggled to gain a point in a goalless draw.

The Hoops were a long way below their best after a roller coaster 3-3 draw with the Dons at Hampden before squeezing through on penalties. Defensively, they were all over the place and vulnerable.

But in the league, they have suddenly taken command in the Premiership after Rangers' recent slip-ups and are three points clear with five games to go and they also have a better goal difference too.

Dundee have done brilliantly to reach the top half after their promotion and have five games now with little pressure on them. But they lost captain Joe Shaughnessy this week for the rest of the season through injury.

They've drawn their last two games 0-0 and their previous draw at Pittodrie was enough to give them sixth place.

How the bookies view it

Celtic are a best priced 3/10 with Coral. Dundee are 17/2 outsiders with Paddy Power and the draw is 5/1 with UniBet.

Recent head to heads

Dundee copped a real sore one when they faced Celtic last time out when they were walloped 7-1 and you wonder what impact that will have on them.

And the Hoops won the other two games by 3-0 margins, so it's been very one-sided this season.

Dundee's last win against Celtic at Dens Park was incredibly in 1988!

Players to watch

Amadou Bakayoko was a pest against Rangers and will want to do the same against Celtic. The on loan Forest Green Rovers striker is 21/4 to add to his six goals this season with UniBet.

Matt O'Riley has enjoyed a superb season with the Hoops and scored at Hampden at the weekend – his 14th of the season. The Danish international is 8/5 to net with bet365 on Sunday.

Anything else catch the eye?

Dundee have been cannon fodder for Celtic this season and you would expect the title-chasing champions to win this too with a bit to spare – especially as they should know what to expect following Rangers' flop at Dens Park.

They have scored 13 goals in three games against them and can add to that here – back a Celtic win and over 3.5 goals at 6/4 with bet365.

Brendan Rodgers' side will know what the state of play is before kick off with Rangers playing at St Mirren first. You would expect them to try and get this wrapped up quickly and it's worth taking s stab on Celtic -1 in the first half handicaps at 3/1 with Paddy Power.
