Runaway Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic return to action this weekend in their first outing following the winter break when they lock horns with Brechin City in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup, however this will be seen in many quarters as little more than a warm-up for their midweek Premiership trip to Partick Thistle. The Hoops went into the winter break on the back of a pretty unconvincing draw with Old Firm rivals Rangers, however we have no hesitation in backing Brendan Rodgers’ men to do the business in Maryhill on Tuesday evening.

The Hoops may sit comfortably at the top of the league table, however they have thus far been less than convincing compared to last season. Nevertheless they have swept aside Partick Thistle, Aberdeen and Dundee in recent outings with seven goals scored and none conceded during this run and we expect them to be far too strong for their hosts at Firhill.

Partick Thistle were showing signs of improvement prior to the winter break and they have lifted themselves off the foot of the table thanks to three wins from their last four matches. They rounded off 2017 by beating fellow strugglers Ross County and enjoyed a 2-1 win over Shanghai Shenhua during the winter break. Indeed the Jags have been pretty solid defensively in recent outings, however their rearguard will certainly have their work cut-out when the Hoops come to town.

Neither of these sides have been prolifically scoring and conceding in recent outings and we’ve seen no more than two goals in all-but-one of their respective last four games. This could prove to be a very low-scoring affair with a single goal likely enough to separate the sides and as such we’ll be siding with Celtic to run-out 1-0 winners in Maryhill next week.
