In their last match, Celtic prevailed with the score of 2:1 at home over Livingston in the Premiership on December 21. The team is presently on a run of five consecutive wins. In Celtic’s last 10 encounters, being the host or playing away was not really a factor that affected the outcome. The teams playing at home won five games, while the visitors won four. Only one of the team’s most recent 10 matches ended in a draw. Of Celtic’s last five meetings, four resulted in over 2.5 goals, and four had both teams scoring. During that period, Celtic managed to keep one clean sheet while scoring at least one goal in all matches. When looking at statistics, we notice that the average number of goals scored during the team’s most recent 5 clashes is 3.20.

St. Johnstone previously faced Ross County on Saturday, and the final score was a 1:2 victory away from home. The club is currently unbeaten in six games, recording two draws and four wins in the process. The home crowd, usually referred to as the “12th player,” has failed to significantly impact St. Johnstone’s recent ten meetings, as they ended in four home wins and four away victories. Three of the team’s last five matches featured over 2.5 goals, with all but one seeing goals at both ends of the field. St. Johnstone’s defensive efforts proved enough to limit the opposition to no goals in one of these games, and they scored on their own at least once in all five. During the team’s recent five outings, the goalkeepers had to pull the ball out of the nets 13 times altogether.
