Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

Celtic will try to get their sixth straight win in all competitions while hosting St. Mirren in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday.

The Hoops have scored at least twice in seven of their last eight encounters against the Buddies, surprising everyone by scooping all three points at Parkhead last season.


Prediction for this match

Celtic have come one step closer to securing European football this season after taking a comfortable 2-0 home win against AZ Alkmaar in the first leg of the Europa League playoffs on Wednesday night.

Summer signature Kyogo Furuhashi scored his sixth goal in as many games to put the Hoops ahead in the 12th minute before scoring in the second half James Forrest diverted Timo Letschertwhich gives the hosts a two-goal lead over next week’s second leg.

That win made it for the new boss for the fifth time in a row Ange Postecoglou, who praised his team’s perseverance at Parkhead as they took control of their crucial European game.

Celtic have enjoyed the start of the new season on home soil, winning the last four games with an aggregate result of 14-2.

They can also be confident in their Premiership encounter against St. Mirren, having won 21 of their last 24 games against them, scoring 61 goals and conceding 18 goals in the process.

However, the Hoops lost their last home game against the Buddies, who surprisingly won 2-1 in January.

Postecoglou now seems to have Celtic on the right track and wants to build on their good form on Saturday with three more points.

St. Mirren are still looking for their first league win after the 2-2 draw against Dundee on the opening day with a 2-1 home defeat to newly promoted Hearts.

Since then, Jim GoodwinThe men also suffered a defeat in the second round of the Scottish League Cup when they lost 4: 3 on penalties to Livingston after a 1-1 draw in 120 minutes.

The Buddies lost to the Lions in the semifinals of this competition last season and could not take revenge as they missed a penalty Curtis Main, Cameron MacPherson and Kyle McAllister condemned the visitors to defeat.

St. Mirren have only won two of their last 15 league games, including last season’s results, and Goodwin will be keen to get their side back to winning ways as they now focus on a challenging series of league games in which they will compete against each other in each of the top six last season in the next seven games.

Their first encounter of the run is against a Celtic team, whom they defeated for the first time since January 1990 at Parkhead last season.

Only two Scottish teams in the 21st century have won away games against Celtic in a row – Aberdeen in 2004 and the Rangers in October 2020 – but another surprise win for the Buddies on Saturday would make them the third team to pull off such a feat.

Celtic coach Postecoglou has confirmed this defender Christopher Jullien will stay on the sidelines for some time as he continues to recover from a knee injury sustained in late 2020.

Attacking midfielder Ryan Christie – who missed the last two games – took a blow in training last week and is doubtful for Saturday’s game.

Joe Hart has taken first place since arriving from Tottenham Hotspur earlier this summer and the 34-year-old is expected to keep his spot Vasilis Barkas and Scott Bain.

In the midfield, Tom Rogic will hope he can keep his place Ismaila Soro and James McCarthywho were both substituted on in the last game while Odsonne Edouard due to Furuhashi’s good form in attack, may have to settle for another bench seat.

As for St. Mirren, Goodwin only made one change to his team over the weekend, and he probably won’t make many changes to his team on Saturday.

Ethan Erhahon was at the expense of Alan Power against Livingston, but the latter could be called into midfield against Celtic to start on the side Jamie McGrath.

Main hasn’t scored a goal in any of his last four appearances in any competition but he will start again Eamonn Brophy.

Celtic possible starting line-up:
Hard; Ralston, Starfelt, Welsh, Taylor; McGregor, Soro, Turnbull; Abada, Edouard, Furuhashi

St. Mirren possible starting line-up:
Alnwick; Fraser, Shaughnessy, Dunne; Tait, McGrath, Power, Tanser; Kiltie; Head, Brophy

Probability: Celtic 2-0 St. Mirren

Celtic has found its groove in the last few weeks and the players are very confident. Another win in front of the fans is expected on Saturday.

St. Mirren will fight for sure, but the Hoops should have no problem taking a routine win at Parkhead.
