CELTIC 5 HEARTS 0 ( Sat, Nov 3 2018)
BREATHTAKING! The champions decimated Craig Levein’s title pretenders from Edinburgh in a pulverising performance at Parkhead.
Celtic completed a back-to-back superb double following their 3-0 triumph in the League Cup semi-final win at Murrayfield the previous week. The Tynecastle men had made a lot of noise before the two encounters against the champions.
This time around in the east end of Glasgow, the Hoops went two better as Odsonne Edouard (2), Filip Benkovic, James Forrest and Ryan Christie, with a late penalty-kick, got on the scoresheet as the title kings’ goalscoring in their past five domestic games rocketed to a remarkable 23.
The Tynecastle outfit have shed eight in two games to add to the six against St Johnstone, four versus Hibs and five at Dundee.
It’s awesome stuff as Celtic get back into their stride with another treble on the radar.
TEAM: Gordon; Lustig (sub: Ajer 58), Boyata, Benkovic, Tierney; McGregor, Christie, Rogic; Forrest, Sinclair (sub: Morgan 80); Edouard (sub: Johnston 72).
*TOMORROW: Any key game on the way to title No.8.
