Ladbrokes Premiership
Sky Sports Football, 12.30pm Saturday

The Celtic juggernaut rolls into Perth on Saturday and St Johnstone are unlikely to put up much resistance.

The Bhoys have shown this season that, far from putting in a lethargic performance after a big Champions League match, they usually raise their game.

After defeats to PSG and Bayern, they responded with thumping wins in their next Ladbrokes Premiership game.

They were supposed to be on their knees when they went to Aberdeen and promptly played them off the park.

Saints must be lacking confidence after a dismal run of results and have injury doubts to key players. Brendan Rodgers' men will relish facing their fragile defence at McDiarmid Park.

Recommendation
Celtic to score three or more goals
1pt 11-10 Coral
