Kilmarnock vs. Celtic Match Analysis and Prediction

Celtic will be looking to extend their fiery start to the Scottish Premiership this weekend as they head to take on side Kilmarnock. The match schedules for Sunday at Rugby Park with kickoff at 6:30 pm.

Celtic kickstarted their Scottish Premiership campaign with a triumphant 5-1 thrashing of side Hamilton Academical. The match saw highly-rated forward Odsonne Edouard net his first hat-trick of the season.

Without any commitments in the Europa League or Champions League, Lenno will be focused solely on clinching the tenth consecutive title for the champions. The run of form for the side has attracted interest from Europe, with Eduoard becoming the center of interest. The future of the talisman remains unclear amid links with Arsenal and other top European clubs.

Alex Dyer started off the campaign on a low note after conceding in the fifth-minute opener of the match. The side failed to equalize in their soon-to-be rivals in their rush for a top-six finish in the Scottish Premiership.

Given the sides have Celtic and Rangers in their next fixtures, it was a match the side could have ill-afford a loss. The side has to put their all in this Month to build a platform to build on come September. The side must cherish with a solid head to head record as they head into the match.
