Motherwell will welcome Celtic to Fir Park for a matchday 9 fixture in Scotland Premiership. The last meeting on 6th February 2021 ended in a Celtic 2-1 win. Both sides have met thirty-two times in the most recent seasons. Motherwell has won 3 matches, and Celtic triumphed in 24. Recent outings average 3.34 goals, while both teams score 44% of the time.

Motherwell's latest fixture against Hearts ended in an away 2-0 loss. I expected more from Motherwell. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points.

Celtic's previous game in the competition versus Aberdeen ended in an away 2-1 win. The Hoops was comfortable on the ball for most of the game and constantly avoided the press. Celtic was much better in the second half and scored in the 11st and 84th minute.

Since the start of the season, Motherwell is more dominant at home. They have five wins out of 9 games on home soil. Motherwell's good defensive display is key to their success. They didn't concede in 44% of home games.

Celtic has picked up 16 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. The Celts wins 1.71 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Celtic kept a clean sheet in just 14% of their visits.

The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. Motherwell has won just 56% of home games. On average they score 1.44 goals and concede 1.56 per game. Celtic won their previous away game and I expect more of the same. Their away record looks impressive.

The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. Motherwell wins on average 1.78 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against Celtic. My prediction is Celtic to win.

I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.38 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 50% of Motherwell's home and Celtic's away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.
