Celtic come into this game with Hearts knowing that a win would all but secure them the Scottish Premiership once again. They would have a six point lead over Rangers, with just two games left, and they have a vastly superior goal difference.
The side have enjoyed their season, suffering only three losses all season and are now unbeaten in 29 league games. The return of Kyogo Furuhashi has bolstered the attack of the side and they now have four players on nine goals in the league this season.
Hearts are on a really good run of form themselves at the moment, going eight league games without a loss and winning five of those. They find themselves third overall and have already secured qualification to the Europa League for next season.
They have scored well but have been reliant on Liam Boyce, who has scored 10 so far this season. They’ve been good defensively, conceding an average of a goal a game and have only conceded six games in their last nine games.
