History of the Celtic v Falkirk fixture

Falkirk face a trip to Celtic at Celtic Park on Wednesday evening, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 62 out of 80 times.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was earlier this season, the The Bhoys carving out a narrow 2 - 1 victory in an Scottish League Cup match.
