Weakened Celtic could let Partick get on scoresheet

Thistle prickly in attack

Celtic may not have things all their own way
1 of 1

Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership
BT Sport 1, 7.45pm Friday

Celtic are impossible to oppose - a story that looks set to run all season. But there is value to be had backing them to win with both teams scoring.

Unless you have the deepest of pockets, backing Celtic to win any game this season, apart from perhaps away to Aberdeen and Rangers, is a non-event, as odds as short as 2-9 suggest.

But with the visitors' defence missing Dedryck Boyata and Erik Sviatchenko and Tuesday's Champions League tie with Astana the priority, there is every possibility the Jags could score.

A forward line of Steven Lawless, Stuart Bannigan and Chris Erskine behind Kris Doolan, if he is fit,  should net in most games and they can get on the scoresheet at Firhill.

Recommendation
Celtic to win & both teams to score
