Rangers will welcome Celtic to Ibrox Stadium for a matchday 3 fixture in Scotland Premiership. The last meeting on 18th April 2021 ended in a Rangers 2-0 win. Both sides have met twenty-one times in the most recent seasons. Rangers has won 6 matches, and Celtic triumphed in 12. Recent outings average 2.48 goals, while both teams score 38% of the time.

Rangers's latest fixture against St. Johnstone ended in an away 1-1 draw. I expected more from their creative midfielders, but it just wasn't their day. Rangers was more dominant in the second half and scored in the 55 minute.

Celtic's previous game in the competition versus Aberdeen ended in an away 1-1 draw. They learned a lesson that day. More ball possession and shots do not always give you good results. Celtic was not convincing in the first-half and scored in the 90+3th minute.

Since the start of the season, Rangers is more dominant at home. They have eighteen wins out of 18 games on home soil. Rangers has one of the best defence in the league. They have kept a clean sheet in 78% of their home games.

Celtic has picked up 9 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. The Celts wins 1.83 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows.

It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Recently they enjoy playing at home, having won eighteen consecutive matches. Rangers is yet to lose at home, being undefeated in eighteen games.

The Bhoys failed to win in four consecutive away games. It will be a big surprise to turn up on Sunday and win against Rangers.

I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Rangers wins on average 3.00 points per home game, compared to 1.83 points per away game for Celtic. My prediction is Rangers to win.
