Dundee team news

Liverpool loanee Owen Beck is a concern heading into this match since he carries a groin injury. At this stage, it looks like he will not play as FotMob claim that he will not return to action until May.

Furthermore, they say that Diego Pineda is doubtful as well. He has not been involved for months and was not in the squad for their recent game against the Rangers either.

Celtic team news

Glasgow Derby goalscorer Daizen Maeda is the only injury concern for Celtic as they head into this match. He has not played since the game against the Rangers at Ibrox.

There were fears that he could be out for the rest of the season but there have been indications recently that he is recovering faster than expected. Needless to say, Maeda is a crucial player for Celtic, so Brendan Rodgers will hope to have him back available as soon as possible.

Dundee vs Celtic prediction

Celtic are not top of the table for no reason. They have had a good season overall and despite Rodgers facing a ton of criticism. The Hoops have picked up results when it matters. The manager will know this is an important must-win game and a trip to Dens Park is never easy, as the Rangers learned recently. Still, we will go with an optimistic Celtic 2-0 Dundee scoreline prediction.
