Celtic Glasgow vs Ross County by Joshboy
Celtic have had quite a lot of games this pre season. They have had 3 matches in the champions league qualifiers where they beat Icelandic team Stjarnan 2-0 at home and 4-1 away and they are coming into the match off of a 1-0 home win against Qarabag on Wednesday. In this macth they looked solid at the back and allowed Qarabag only 1 shot on target. They did however struggle to break down Qarabag at the other end where the Azerbaijan champions looked quite solid also. Celtic will have new striker Nadir Ciftci suspended so Leigh Griffiths should lead the line. Also Charlie Mulgrew will probably sit out through a knee injury and Emilio Izaguirre is also suspended. Kris commons has just recovered from injury and came off the bench on Wednesday so he could start but may be rested and brought off the bench later in the game.
Ross county are coming into this match off of 2 losses in their last 2 pre season friendlies. They lost to Szolnoki 2-0 away from home and then lost to Nijmegen 2-0 last Friday. Ross county will have new signing Jackson Irvine available to play against his former side after he signed a permanent deal after being on loan but they will have left back Jamie Reckford injured for this match.
Celtic are going to want to get the season off to a good start playing their first league match of the season in front of their own fans and they have been in quite good form in pre season especially at the back where they have only conceded in 3 of their 8 pre season matches. They also had a very good defensive record last season where they only conceded 17 times in 38 matches. Also ross county aren't in the best of form in front of goal not being able to find the back of the net in either of their last 2 matches. They also haven't scored against Celtic in the last 3 encounters between the 2 clubs. Celtic I think will win this quite comfortably and should be able to keep a clean sheet while doing so. Their fitness levels should be a lot better than their opponents after already playing 3 competitive matches in the champions league qualifiers.
