Celtic will look for their 12th consecutive league win when they meet Hibernian at Easter Road on Wednesday.
Hibernian has had mixed performances this season but has struggled for form recently. They did, however, bounce back on last time out with a 4-0 thrashing of 10-man Livingston. With 23 points from 18 games, Hibernian sits seventh in the Premiership rankings and will be looking to increase that total on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Celtic has had a fantastic season and is pressing forward with its bid for a second straight league championship. In their most recent league match, they defeated St. Johnstone 4-1. With 51 points after 18 games, the guests are first in the league. They will now want to maintain their stellar performance this week and tighten their hold on the top spot.

Hibernian’s most recent victory ended a five-game losing streak, and they’ll be hoping to build on it. However, they have lost their last three home games and might struggle now. Celtic has won their previous 11 league games, and they are currently on a three-game winning streak. They should win this week as they have played well away from home this season.
