Dundee United vs. Celtic Match Analysis and Prediction

After postponing matches over coronavirus fears in the camp, Celtic is back in action this weekend, taking on side Dundee United. The second away trip schedules on Saturday with kickoff at 7:30 pm.

Celtic saw their matches last weekend postponed over the unsanctioned trip by Boli Bolingoli to Spain. The trip raised a misdemeanor charge against the skipper. However, Neil Lennon sets to make a comeback after a troubled start to the title defense league.

Their last outing ended in a disappointing 1-1 draw to side Kilmarnock. The side might build upon their rivals 1-1 draw to side Livingston last weekend. The side breezed through the Champions League in midweek and will be looking to close the gap against their rivals at Hibernian.

Despite many European teams keeping their tabs on Odsonne Edouard, the talisman has netted four goals in his opening appearances this season. After making a big move from Albian Ajeti from West Ham, Lennon might hit the ground running.

With Celtic clinging on Edouard, Dundee United is also unsure about the future of Lawrence Shankland. French side Guingamp is garnering high interest in the talisman. The shock move might leave Micky Mellon without attacking options. Shankland has had a wonderful season since he arrived at the side.
