Celtic will entertain Kilmarnock at Celtic Park on Wednesday night after being crowned as the new champions of Scotland last month. The Hoops have been sensational during the course of this season and has enjoyed a rich vein of form in recent weeks. Brendan Rodgers’ team has won their last five matches in all competitions and will be confident about earning a positive result versus Killie tomorrow.
The recent history of this fixture makes a grim reading for the away side as they have just won once in their previous 14 meetings with the Hoops, losing 11 of those matches. Rodgers has no major injury concerns to cope with. However, he could be without the services of Odsonne Edouard after the midfielder picked up an injury in Celtic’s last league outing versus Hearts.
4-2-3-1 Celtic Predicted Lineup To Face Kilmarnock
Scott Bain should start in goal for the Hoops of Glasgow and will be guarded by a back four consisting of Dedryck Boyata and Kristoffer Ajer in central defence while Callum McGregor operates as the left-back and Mikael Lustig might start on the right side of the backline. Brendan Rodgers is expected to stick with the same back four that conceded just one goal away at Hearts in their last league encounter.
The Hoops defence has kept two clean sheets in their last four matches in all competitions which means that the Celtic backline would be confident about putting in another solid display at the back versus Killie on Wednesday night.
The midfield pair of Scott Brown and Olivier Ntcham could be unleashed at the centre of the park as the holding midfielders while the trio of James Forrest, Tomas Rogic and Scott Sinclair might be deployed to play ahead of them as they look to link up and create some opportunities in the opposition half.
Moussa Dembele is expected to lead the lines for the Glaswegian side up top. He found the back of the net versus Hearts in the last gameweek which should give the French striker some confidence in getting his name on the scoresheet once again when he laces up to take on the Kilmarnock defence tomorrow.
The Frenchman has featured in 37 matches for the Bhoys this season, scoring 16 goals while providing 8 assists in all competitions. Hence, Rodgers will hope that Dembele can add to his goal tally and get the job done against Kilmarnock on Wednesday night.
