A win for the Hoops would move them 12 points clear of nearest challengers Aberdeen at the top of the Scottish Premiership table and a massive 15 points clear of their bitter rivals Rangers.
The Bhoys go into the game on the back of a good performance against Ross County on Saturday, where midfield man Stuart Armstrong was the impetus for a 3-0 victory.
Another good performance from the 26-year-old on Wednesday would go a long way towards securing a victory against Dundee.
Football Insider verdict
This should be a relatively comfortable win for the Hoops against a side currently struggling in a battle to avoid relegation in 10th place in the SPFL table. Hoops Brendan Rodgers will still be taking the match extremely seriously though, and will be looking for the three points that will take the Hoops even closer to clinching their seventh league title in a row. It will be interesting to see if Leigh Griffiths gets the nod to start following his return to action against Ross County, and the goalkeeping situation is very intriguing, as with Scott Bain ineligible Craig Gordon could well make an unexpected return to first-team action.
