Hearts should be confident they can mark their mark against Celtic

Betting advice for the big clash at Tynecastle

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers
1 of 1

Sky Sports Football, 12.30pm Saturday

Hearts will relish facing a Celtic side who have had a rare nightmare week and the Jambos are value to score at least a couple of goals.

Bhoys manager Brendan Rodgers has voiced his frustrations over a lack of transfers this summer, which culminated in their failure to land Hibernian's John McGinn, and they were held to a poor 1-1 home draw in the Champions League by AEK Athens.

In contrast, Hearts are full of confidence after smashing in nine goals in their last two games against Inverness and Hamilton.

Peter Haring, Uche Ikpeazu and Steven Naismith are likely to seriously test a Hoops defence who look vulnerable and they look a big price to score twice or more.

Recommendation
Over 1.5 Hearts goals
1pt 3-1 bet365, Coral
