Celtic prepare for their seventh fixture of the busy festive period as they host Aberdeen on Saturday afternoon.

A convincing 2-0 victory against Hearts at Tynecastle on Wednesday night ensured the Hoops continued on their Premiership winning streak; it’s now nine wins in a row for the champions in the league. Goals from Ryan Christie and Olivier Ntcham sealed another important three points.

Aberdeen have been a mixed bag recently. They’ve won just two of their previous five Premiership games while suffering a disappointing 3-0 loss to Hibs in the capital at the beginning of the month. They remain third in the table, just a point ahead of Motherwell.

The sides last met in October up North, where Neil Lennon’s side cruised to a 4-0 win; all goals coming in the first-half.

The Hoops are unbeaten at home domestically this season and it looks like that run will continue.

Here is our predicted Celtic XI for Saturday’s 3pm kick-off.
