Celtic FC vs Hamilton prediction: Celtic FC line-up
Celtic welcome Hamilton to the Celtic Park on Wednesday looking to make it seven wins in a row in the Scottish Premiership.
The Hoops thrashed Ross County 4-1 on Sunday, with goals from Ryan Christie, Tom Rogic and Mikey Johnston helping them maintain their position at the top of the Premiership table.
Neil Lennon’s team is in sublime form and head into Wednesday’s contest against Hamilton as overwhelming favourites.
Odsonne Edouard missed the Ross County game and is unlikely to be fit for the midweek fixture. Boli Bolingoli is also likely to miss out while Mohamed Elyounoussi won’t start training for another few days. Jonny Hayes remains doubtful as well.
Probable Celtic XI
Fraser Forster (GK)
Forster missed out on a clean sheet on Sunday but he’ll be eager to keep one against Hamilton.
Jeremie Frimpong (RB)
Frimpong has nailed down his place at right-back and that won’t change on Wednesday.
Christopher Jullien (CB)
Jullien has established himself as a first-team regular, forging a solid central defensive partnership with Ajer.
Kristoffer Ajer (CB)
Ajer has been a regular fixture since the start of the season and should start alongside Jullien in central defence.
Greg Taylor (LB)
Taylor had a good game against Ross County and is likely to retain his place at left-back, especially with Hayes and Boli Bolingoli unlikely to be fit.
Scott Brown (CM)
Celtic’s skipper, Brown will look to stamp his authority on the game from the first blow of the whistle.
Callum McGregor (CM)
Partnering Brown in central midfield will be McGregor, who has been one of the best players for the Hoops so far this season.
James Forrest (LW)
Forrest started on the left flank on Sunday and caused problems for the Ross County defenders. Lennon will be hoping for something similar from his winger against Hamilton as well.
Tom Rogic (CAM)
The goal in the 4-1 win over Ross County should give Rogic a lot of confidence ahead of the busy spell of games. The Australian will look to impress his boss on Wednesday.
Ryan Christie (RW)
Christie took his tally to 15 for the season with a double at Ross County. A livewire, he is a definite starter against Hamilton.
