Dundee Utd v Celtic: Bhoys to continue fine record over Terrors


Ladbrokes Premiership leaders Celtic can put further pressure on title rivals Aberdeen when they head to bottom-dwelling Dundee United this evening.

The Bhoys head to Tannadice tonight having picked up a much-needed 1-0 win over Partick Thistle in their last league encounter.

Celtic dropped points either side of Christmas against Motherwell and Hearts but results elsewhere mean Ronny Deila’s men head into this clash with a game in hand and a three point lead over Aberdeen.

The Glaswegian side are 7/20 favourites to beat Mixu Paatelainen’s men, having already done so twice this term.

Celtic have won seven of the last eight league encounters between the teams, including a 3-1 win at Tannadice in August and a 5-0 thumping in October.

United have won just twice this season, and they need results fast if they’re to avoid relegation.

The hosts are 15/2 for a surprise victory, while a draw can be backed at 4/1.

Scoring goals hasn’t been United’s major problem this term, but a leaky defence has been their undoing with both teams scoring in six of the Terrors’ last seven Premiership matches.

With that in mind, Ladbrokes’ match boost could be a popular one, with the bookies boosting Celtic to win and Both Teams to Score from 7/4 to 9/4.

The TV cameras will be in place for this clash and that means you can also enjoy Ladbrokes’ Double Odds offer.

Simply back a player to score first and if that selection nets the opening goal inside the first 25 minutes, you’ll be paid out at double the odds!

We need not look any further than the Premiership’s top scorer Leigh Griffiths to bring home the goods at 12/5.

The Celtic front man has netted four goals in his last three league and cup games, including after just 18 minutes in Saturday’s Cup win at Stranraer.

Should Griffiths get off to another lightning start tonight, Ladbrokes will pay you out at 24/5!
