Celtic didn’t produce their best performance against Hearts recently, but they just know how to win games even when they are not at their best. Neil Lennon’s men are on a terrific run of form at the moment, and they will host Aberdeen at Celtic Park next.
The Dons have done well after a shaky start to the season. However, they will have a big task of stopping Celtic’s juggernaut, which seems to be rolling on and on. Celtic had managed a 4-0 win at the Pittodrie in October this season where the Dons looked lacklustre and devoid of energy. Derek McInnes will be hoping to see a much better shift from his boys, and they will need to be at their very best to get something out of this game.
Team News: Even injuries haven’t been able to stop Celtic so far. The injury concerns have eased up a bit in the last few days. However, Jozo Simunovic, Mohamed Elyounoussi and Hatem Abd Elhamed are expected to be unavailable for this encounter.
Celtic Predicted Lineup Vs Aberdeen
Fraser Forster has been rock solid in goal so far, and he will be expected to start in between the sticks again. Christopher Jullien will be expected to keep his place in defence. Kristoffer Ajer will likely partner him in the centre back role.
Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo might return to the lineup after not being involved in the tie against the Jambos. He will slot in at left-back. Young ace Jeremie Frimpong continues to impress, and he will feature in the right-back position.
Scott Brown’s fitness level looks supreme as he is still doing his job week in week out even at this age. The captain will start in the defensive midfield role. Callum McGregor should partner him in the middle.
Michael Johnston wasn’t involved even on the bench against Hearts which was slightly surprising. There are no injury reports about him, so we are expecting him to fit and fresh. Hence, he could get the nod to start on the left flank in this encounter. Ryan Christie will likely play in his preferred attacking midfield role. James Forrest has performed as an inverted winger in the last few games, but he could occupy his usual right-wing spot for this clash.
Leigh Griffiths is unlikely to dislodge Odsonne Eduard from the first team for now, and the French striker will be expected to lead the line.
