Sky Sports pundits predict Celtic clash v Hibernian
Sky Sports Scottish football experts Ian Crocker and Andy Walker have both been offering predictions on the upcoming Celtic match against Hibs on Saturday.
In their column on the Sky Sports website, both men agree on who will win the game but differ on who the first goalscorer and key man will be.
Walker is going for an emphatic 4-0 win for the Hoops, with his tip for first goalscorer midfield man Olivier Ntcham, who he believes is a “quality player”.
Meanwhile, Crocker believes that the game will be much closer, as he is predicting a narrow 2-1 win for the Hoops, with his tip for key man is striker Leigh Griffiths, who he thinks “might be needed from the off against the team of his dreams!”
Griffiths came off the bench to score the winning goal against Partick Thistle on Tuesday night as the Hoops won 2-1 at Firhill as the Bhoys moved 11 points clear of Rangers and Aberdeen at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.
Celtic will be hoping to defeat Hibs for the first time in the league at the third attempt at Celtic Park, with both previous meetings ending in 2-2 draws.
The Bhoys did defeat Neil Lennon’s side 4-2 in the Betfred Cup semi-final though on their way to retaining the trophy.
