St. Mirren form and stats

Only two Premiership home games for St. Mirren so far, yet both highs and lows with 1 win, 1 draw and 0 defeat.

In their previous game, the manager J. Goodwin led his Mirren to a defeat in the Premiership match away at St. Johnstone. The manager is hoping to put things right immediately here at The Simple Digital Arena. In the match before that, Mirren hosted Ross County and drew the game 1-1.

Despite playing at their own arena the home team are massive underdogs in this game. The home fans will enjoy their drinks and snacks knowing that the chances of a positive outcome are very slim. When Mirren have been in this position before, they have won zero, drawn one and lost three from four games. one defeat by at least two goals.

St. Mirren has scored 2 goals so far and conceded 1 goal from 2 home games. These are numbers from the league only.

Celtic form and stats

Four points from two away games for Celtic, meaning one draw and one victory in the Premiership so far.

Did you know that the longest clean sheet streak is 1816 minutes? This record is held by Mazaropi when he played in Vasco da Gama. Celtic goalkeeper Vasileios Barkas is eager to challenge this, with his 246 minutes of keeping balls out from the net.

Celtic go into this game after a win, the home game against Motherwell that ended 3-0. Preceding that, the 1-2 home loss versus Ferencvaros.

As mentioned earlier, Celtic will not be satisfied unless they get a comfortable victory in this game. Performing as huge favourites away from home has earlier resulted in 14 wins (nine by two or more goals winning margin), three draws and one surprising defeat.

2 goals so far away for Celtic, while their defence has allowed the opposition to score 1. All from 2 league matches away.

Head 2 Head

H2H stats regardless of arena (last ten matches): St. Mirren zero wins, one draw and Celtic nine victories. As for goals, six matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), four games had two or less.
