History of the Falkirk v Celtic fixture

Falkirk prepare to entertain Celtic at The Falkirk Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to improve on a dire past record against their opponents. It does not make pleasant reading, winning just 18 of the 84 games played, and losing 45.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at The Falkirk Stadium was earlier this season, where Celtic annihilated the Bairns 0-4 in a Scottish League Cup match.

Recent respective form guides

Falkirk's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. Bairns have conceded a disappointing 10 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 3 of their own chances.

Celtic's away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occasions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The games have constituted a decent return of 10 goals for the The Bhoys, and 4 goals against.

Falkirk find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 10 games have yielded only 4 points. Celtic are leading the way in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier, with their 10 games giving them a return of 23 points.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Nothing seems to be going right for the Bairns at home recently, and I can see no immediate turn around in fortunes as the The Bhoys come away with an easy victory. Away win
