Celtic, Dundee Utd and Dundee star in fantastic 9/2 Scottish special

| 26.12.2014

Coral are offering a sublime Scottish special to warm you up this Winter, with Premiership leaders Celtic, Dundee United and Dundee all available to win at fantastic 9/2 odds.

Reap the benefits of this cracking Christmas special and potentially make a profit just on time for the big day, by backing this trio of top-flight teams to triumph.

Celtic v Ross County
Scottish champions Celtic top the table by four points, and will face a Ross County side in a fixture the Glasgown giants have dominated. The high-flying Hoops thrashed their opponents 5-0 in the first meeting of the season, and Ronny Deila’s brilliant Bhoys are 1/6 odds-on favourites to win this latest clash.

The away side have not defeated Celtic since March 2013, and the hosts will be aiming to make it nine victories from their last 10 games, after a superb start to the campaign which has seen them fire in an incredible 34 goals already.

Deila’s men won two of the three meetings between these sides last term, and will be aiming to make it two victories over them already this season. On-loan frontman John Guidetti was on target in the 5-0 trouncing earlier in the campaign, and the Swedish striker is 7/4 to net two or more in the latest meeting.

St Johnstone v Dundee United
Jackie McNamara’s menacing men (11/8 to gain victory) are pushing hard on Celtic, currently only four points adrift in second place. It’s been a great season so far for the Tannadice team, winning three of their last five league games, including a terrific 2-1 triumph over the Bhoys last time out.

The Terrors will be hoping to strike further fear into their opponents, with the away side boasting a superb recent run of form, having struck eight times in their previous four league fixtures.

Tommy Wright’s Saints were toppled by United earlier in the campaign when Chris Erskine and Paul Paton struck to earn a comfortable 2-0 home win. Encouraged Erskine is 7/4 to net at anytime at McDiarmid Park, having opened the scoring in the reverse fixture.

Dundee v St Mirren
The home side have won the last three encounters between these teams, including a narrow 1-0 victory at the beginning of this season. Peter MacDonald struck late in the second half to give Dundee all three points in the game at St Mirren Park, and is 9/2 to grab the opening goal in the latest clash at Dens Park.

Dundee, odds-on 5/6 favourites, will be confident of picking up another win, with their struggling opposition having lost six consecutive domestic league games, while conceding 13 goals in those defeats.
