SCOTLAND .... SPL
GLASGOW CELTIC- GLASGOW RANGERS
Not the greatest of seasons for these two so far, especally in Europe, but that just increases the pressure on both to get a result in this most intense of derby games.
Nerves are sure to play a part and I feel we might see a lot of action early, which was the case in the first Old Firm derby of the year, when we saw three goals inside 25 minutes.
Rangers will arrive in confident mood after scoring 23 times in their last five starts, average time of their first goal in that sequence has been 14.6 minutes. They have also conceded inside a minute to Hibernian and eight minutes to Sevilla in the past month. Actually each of the Gers last eleven starts have seen a goal inside the opening 26 minutes.
Celtic games have also been busy early doors, with an average of over 2.14 goals in their last seven opening 45 minutes, with both teams scoring in four of those.
Feel the "over" one goal bet in the first half offers value and we could be "freerolling" after ten minutes or so, which would be the dream scenario.
6 points "over" 1 goal first half 2.09 asian line.
