Celtic take on sixth placed Dundee United later tonight in a much-awaited Scottish Premier League tie. A win for Celtic would take them 9 points clear of Aberdeen, who are second in the league.
Celtic will be coming on the back of a disappointing 1-1 draw against Hamilton, and will look to better that result at home against Dundee. Although, the tie will nit be a foregone conclusion given Dundee’s recent form.
Dundee are unbeaten in their last 6 games, and will not surrender to Celtic’s top place in the league. Both sides have key players missing due to injuries, which might make the game a tight affair.

Celtic predicted XI: Gordon; Lustig, Boyata, Sviatchenko, Tierney; Bitton, Brown; McGregor, Rogic, Armstrong; Griffiths
Dundee predicted XI: Bain; McGinn, Gadzhalov, Etxabeguren, Holt; Ross, McGowan; Stewart, Harkins, Loy; Hemmings
