Partick Thistle vs Celtic
The Scottish League Cup reaches the knockout stages as the current holders Celtic make the short trip to Partick Thistle.
The Scottish champions haven't had their usual strong start to the season being knocked out of the Champions League to AEK Athens following a 1-0 away defeat to Hearts in the league. One thing is for sure, Celtic can't afford any further disappointment so soon after 2 consecutive losses. They don't have another match until a week on Sunday so they can fully concentrate on getting their domestic campaign back on track this weekend.
Partick were relegated from the Premiership last season via the play-off's where they lost to Livingston. They've started their league season with 1 win and 1 defeat and come the end of the season they will likely be there or thereabouts, probably in the play-offs.
There is no question that Celtic have the much better team, even their 2nd string should be better than Partick's 1st team. Celtic will have all the possession and will create plenty of chances. The rest is down to them.
