Hearts v Celtic (28/11/12) Pre match
Celtic face hearts for the second time this season after our 1-0 victory on the 7th October with Mr Samaras getting the winning goal that day.
73% of Hearts’s matches had under 2.5 goals in total. Celtic scored at least one goal in all of their away matches. Celtic have scored 71% of their goals away. 85% of Celtic’s conceded goals occurred in the second half. Celtic have scored the opening goal in 79% of their matches.
“I’m looking for a positive reaction (after the defeat to Inverness CT) and it’ll be a good atmosphere – it always is at Tynecastle. “There’s always a wee bit of electricity in the air. It’s a great game to get our teeth into. “They keep asking the players to go beyond the call of duty for professional footballers and they respond brilliantly. “They seem to galvanize themselves time after time. With us coming to Edinburgh it raises the game and I expect them to be as professional as they always are. “I respect any professional who has had to go through what the Hearts players have had to go through.”
