Recent respective form guides
Celtic are unbeaten in their last six home games, winning five of them, and drawing the other one. During these games, The Bhoys have smashed 14 goals past the opposition and conceded a paltry 2.
In complete contrast to Celtic, Falkirk are having a torrid time on their travels, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Bairns have hit 4 goals, 8 have hit the back of the wrong net.
Celtic's total of 37 points from their 18 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier. Falkirk find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 17 games have yielded only 12 points.
