Celtic vs. Motherwell Match Analysis and Prediction

Following a disappointing exit from the Champions League, Scottish Champions Celtic will be looking to bounce back this weekend as they take on Motherwell. The match schedules for Sunday with kickoff at 5 pm.

Motherwell is having a rough start to the Scottish Premiership without any win so far. However, the side will cherish their win over side Glentoran in the Europa League first qualifying round.

After starting the season on a low note following the Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo coronavirus fears, Neil Lennon was hoping to record a good start to their Champions League qualifying rounds. The side suffered a 2-1 home defeat to side Ferencvaros in the midweek fixture. The fall from Champions League football raises an eye over the availability of the Northern Irishman.

Rumors rocking the camp is that several key players have issued transfer requests. At the end of the season, Neil Lennon was shy of acknowledging any transfer requests from the player. The title defenders, even with two games in hand, have to worry over the gap against their rivals Rangers leading the table.

Even though Celtic head into the match as favorites, Motherwell might have received the boost they needed to register their first win in the Europa qualifications. Celtic might have to worry about their current form with title under threat. It remains up to Lennon to shake off the loss and make a comeback at home.
