Three reasons Celtic’s unbeaten run could come to an end vs Dundee
Celtic take on Dundee on Sunday not knowing quite yet if it will be a match that can secure the league title or not. Aberdeen take on Hearts on Saturday and if the Dons lose then it opens the door for Brendan Rodgers’ side to clinch a sixth successive league title at Dens Park.
That would be a big motivating factor ahead of the game but with the league pretty much signed, sealed and delivered regardless of this weekend’s results, the Hoops are likely treating their preparation for this match like any other.
What’s also at stake is Celtic’s unbeaten domestic record. We’ve been writing this for months now but incredible Brendan Rodgers’ side have still not been defeated in domestic football. Perhaps more remarkably, they’ve only drawn twice.
That record is at risk on Sunday and with every side between now and the end of the season desperate to be the team that bursts the bubble, it gets tougher and tougher to maintain the record. Dundee are no different and will be right up for this one in front of their own fans.
