History of the Falkirk v Celtic fixture

Falkirk prepare to entertain Celtic at The Falkirk Stadium on Sunday afternoon, looking to improve on a dire past record against their opponents. It does not make pleasant reading, winning just 18 of the 85 games played, and losing 45.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at The Falkirk Stadium was earlier this season, when they fought out a thrilling high-scoring 3-3 draw in a Scottish Premier match.

Recent respective form guides

Falkirk's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Bairns have scored 5, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

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 13 goals for the The Bhoys, and 4 goals against.

Falkirk find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 26 games have yielded only 20 points. Celtic's total of 51 points from their 27 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier.

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

Sequence statistics:
Falkirk Not drawn a match in their last 6 .
Celtic Not won in previous 2 away matches.
