Best Tip: Both teams to score

Rangers may feel positive ahead of this match and, funnily enough, so might Celtic. The bookmakers don't think there's much between them and neither do we – there's no obvious winner in this tie. So we look to the both teams to score market, where the signs are pointing in one direction. The form stats, past head-to-head (H2H) records and bookmakers odds below are all pointing towards both sides scoring, and we think that's the tip to go with here.
