To Win (90mins)
Pirates 9/20 
Draw 28/10 
Celtic 57/10

Pirates dipped their toes into some league action midweek, coming away with a slim three-pointer against Maritzburg United in KZN.

It wasn’t a runaway victory by any stretch of the imagination, but a clean sheet and a goal at the other end is all they could’ve asked for, and I’ve got a feeling they’re going to have a solid run into Christmas.

Celtic haven’t been the side I hoped this season.

They have a couple of notable victories against good sides, but they’re letting winnable games slip by them without really trying to take control of them.

They’ve drawn their last five, something only a PSL team could achieve, but this fixture will be the biggest test of them all.

This must be considered a banker this weekend, not just based on current form.

Betting Prediction: PIRATES 9/20
These sides have a lengthy history between them, but Celtic have never beaten Pirates away from home. I repeat, NEVER. Whilst I’m not a big believer in certainty, this may be as close as you’re going to get to it this weekend. They’re only at 45/100, but with the above record to consider, you may be lucky to get any value here.
