Aberdeen and Celtic will fight for three points in the Scottish Premiership at kick-off on Sunday noon.

The home side entered the game after a 3-2 loss to St. Mirren last Sunday. Connor Ronan scored in both halves to guide his team to three points.

Celtic suffered a debilitating 4-0 defeat to Bayer Leverkusen at home in the Europa League on Thursday. Four different men have signed up on the Bundesliga scoresheet to leave the Bhoys rooted at the bottom of the table in group G.

Only two points separate Sunday’s opponents in the national standings. Celtic are slightly better placed in sixth place, with 10 points in seven games, while Aberdeen are two points and one place below them.


Aberdeen vs Celtic Head to Head

The two teams have faced each other 89 times in the past and Celtic have a much better record with 70 wins to their name.

Aberdeen has only claimed victory 10 times while nine matches have resulted in a share of the spoils.

One of those draws came in their last meeting, a 1-1 draw that saw Lewis Ferguson and Leon Griffiths score in each half to share the loot.

The hosts have been in poor shape and are currently on an eight-game winless streak in all competitions. Celtic are doing a little better with just one win in their last five matches in all competitions.
