PREDICT AND WIN SBI SHARES: Football Prediction #8 (23/09/2021) - Scottish League Cup: Celtic v Raith Rovers
It wasn't the demolition job I had hoped, but nevertheless, Leeds won. On penalties after a 0-0 draw down in London and progressed through to the next round where we will again travel to London to face the Arsenal.
I have a good feeling about this season and I think our name is on the cup this year!
The best part was seeing our youngsters stepping up to take and score a penalty so the future is looking good for Joe Geldhart and Stuart McKinstry as they fight for a regular first-team place.
Anyway, that's all in the past so let's look at tonight and the Scottish League Cup game between...
Celtic are having rather a disappointing start to the season and have now lost five successive away games a with the loss at Livingstone at the weekend. They currently sit in sixth place in the Premiership and the faithful are getting restless!
The manager, Ange Postecoglou is trying to bed in ten new signings and cope with a busy fixtures list but these excuses won't stand up for ever and a serious change in fortunes must be brought about before their hopes of a title are rapidly decreasing. Tonight's game against Raith Rovers, who sit 5th in the Championship would be a good opportunity to do just that.
Raith come into the game tonight as underdogs of course but there form this season has been less than inspiring with just 7 points from their first 5 games. Key man tonight will be the in-form striker, Dario Zanatta who has bagged 5 goals from 5 games and if he can get an early goal, will seriously give Celtic an uphill task.
Prediction: Celtic 1 : 2 Raith Rovers - First goal scorer: Zanatta
