Aberdeen's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While The Dons have scored 4, a worringly large 8 have been leaked at the other end.
The away form of Celtic however, is much more impressive, picking up four victories from the last six. The games have constituted a decent return of 11 goals for the The Bhoys, and 4 goals against.
