Celtic vs Motherwell
Venue: Celtic Park
Kick-off: Saturday 15th October, 3pm
Motherwell were on the wrong end of a five goal game when they last visited Celtic Park, losing 5-0. They weren't the first and they won't be the last to feel the wrath of Celtic's attack, with the League Champions performing ruthlessly at home this season.
Since having to come from behind to secure a late 2-1 win over Astana, Celtic haven't looked back. They've won six and drawn one of their seven games since, drawing 3-3 with Manchester City and sweeping aside everyone else in their path.
Celtic managed four or more goals five times, most recently beating Kilmarnock 6-1 just a couple of weeks ago. Motherwell find themselves in sixth place, 10 points behind Celtic. On their travels Motherwell have only been beaten by the old firm sides.
Match Predictions and Betting Tips

Celtic have been absolutely ruthless at home so far. Although Motherwell are actually a decent side and they do compete well on their travels, I just think that Celtic are too hot to handle here for anyone at present. Back Celtic –2.5AH at best odds of 13/14 with Bet Victor.
It's no surprise Celtic won the first meeting, but 5-0 was probably a bit much. Motherwell have scored in every other away game they've played this season and they had won the previous three at the time. Celtic have allowed the opposition a goal or two in five of their last six games.Celtic to win4-1 as our correct score prediction at odds of 12/1 with Bet Victor.
Moussa Dembele is enjoying life at Celtic. He has scored in all but one of their home games, registering 11 goals at Celtic Park. He's netted 13 overall including an injury time winner that saw Celtic progress in the Champions League. Dembele looks comfortable here and he's building himself a reputation as Celtic's talisman.
