Partick Thistle vs Celtic – Premiership
Thursday 18th May 19:45, Firhill
Match Preview and Betting Tips
Celtic have had the league title wrapped up for months, and last weekend they made it to the 100 point mark with a 3-1 win at 2nd placed Aberdeen.
Tomorrow the champions travel to Firhill to take on a Partick Thistle side that look set to finish in 6th place, which is a decent improvement on last season when they took 9th spot.
The hosts have not won any of their last four games and have to take maximum points from the last two matches of the season if they are to have any chance of finishing above Hearts. Celtic continue their unbeaten run and have picked up wins in each of their last four games.
After winning the league I think the 100 point target was the only thing Celtic had to play for, and now that that has been achieved we might just see Rodgers men take their foot off the gas a little.
The majority of the last five matches between these sides has ended very close, with just one big 4-1 win for Celtic during that period.
I’m going against the bookmakers and backing Partick to earn a point from this match, with under 2.5 goals being scored and Brown to pick up the first booking of the game.

Partick Thistle vs Celtic Stats
These two sides know each other very well having met almost 200 times over the years, and as you might expect who have largely dominated this fixture with 132 wins and just 28 defeats.
When the pair met at Celtic Park in April the sides went in level at the break after a goalless first half.
A strike from former Aston Villa and Manchester City forward Scott Sinclair in the 50th minute broke the deadlock, and many could have been forgiven for thinking this was the opening of the flood gates.
Instead it was Partick who reacted much better to going the goal down and managed to equalise in the 64th minute through former Wimbledon striker Azeez.
Just 2 minutes after going level Partick conceded a penalty, but the usually lethal Sinclair missed the chance to hand Celtic all 3 points.
