Celtic will look to bounce back from Europa Conference League disappointment in midweek when they face Premiership strugglers Dundee on Sunday.

Ange Postecoglou's men fell to Bodo/Glimt on Thursday, ending a run of 17 games without defeat in all competitions, but they are heavy favourites to walk over a Dundee side under new management.

Here's all you need to know about this one.


When is kick off? Sunday 20 February, 15:00 (GMT)

Celtic team news

Reo Hatate started the Bodo/Glimt defeat on the bench but can expect to return to the starting lineup, where he will likely be joined by Tom Rogic and Callum McGregor in midfield. With young Matt O'Riley impressing and Yosuke Ideguchi back available, Postecoglou has some real depth in that role.

Midfielder David Turnbull and forwards Kyogo Furuhashi and Albian Ajeti remain out


Dundee team news

New manager Mark McGhee will be in the stands for the next six games after being hit with a lengthy ban back in 2017. Then still at Motherwell, McGhee had a verbal fight with a supporter but was relieved of his duties before the ban could be served.

Defender Vontae Daley-Campbell is back available after serving his own suspension.


Celtic vs Dundee predicted lineups

Celtic: Hart; Juranovic, Carter-Vickers, Starfelt, Taylor; McGregor, Hatate, Rogic; Abada, Maeda, Jota.

Dundee: Lawlor; Daley-Campbell, Sweeney, McGhee, Kerr; Byrne, Adam, McCowan; McGinn, McMullan, Mullen


Celtic vs Dundee head-to-head record

Dundee are yet to beat Celtic in any of their 27 attempts, having been outscored 68-10 across those games.

A lot of that damage was done earlier this season. Celtic won 6-0 on matchday two before sealing a scrappy 4-2 win in November to extend their run of consecutive victories over Dundee to five matches.

Dundee have avoided defeat at Celtic Park just once, snatching a 0-0 draw against Brendan Rodgers' side in April 2018.


Celtic vs Dundee score prediction

It's hard to see anything other than an emphatic Celtic win here. Postecoglou's men are flying and Dundee are labouring towards the bottom of the table. It's David vs Goliath.

Sure, the performance against Bodo/Glimt wasn't ideal, but Celtic know they can be significantly better than that and they will be eyeing a statement response here, which could mean Dundee are on the receiving end of a mauling.

Expect goals.

Prediction: Celtic 4-0 Dundee
