Five reasons to buy Celtic v Aberdeen tickets now!

Celtic are back at home this weekend as the second round of fixtures rolls round with the visit of Aberdeen this Sunday, and with the league really beginning to hot up, here’s five reasons to secure your ticket today.

Round two 

Aberdeen’s trip to Lanarkshire signals the start of the second round of fixtures this season, as the league steps up a gear before the Christmas break. Celtic currently sit third in the table five points adrift of the top spot after one round of games, and picking up two wins in the remaining league fixtures before the new year will be key for Fran Alonso’s side. 

The Aberdeenshire side proved a tricky test for Celtic last time out, taking two goals off the Hoops at Balmoral Park in the league opener, but the Celtic steamroller carried on stretching their domestic unbeaten run to 25 before narrowly losing out to Rangers in the final match of the round.

And with the middle round getting underway, the Celts will be looking for as much support as possible to steer them onto victory.  

All eyes on the league

The Celts have quickly had to come down from the high of booking their place in next month’s League Cup final, and despite the Firhill showdown being just over a week away, all focus is on Aberdeen.

Despite impressive cup scalps knocking out Rangers and holder Hibs lately, Celtic haven’t managed to pick up maximum points in their last two league outings, making a win on Sunday pivotal. Last season’s SWPL2 champions began life in the top flight with a visit from Celtic back in September for the league opener, in what proved to be a challenging affair for the Hoops. And Celtic, who ran out eventual 4-2 winners, were the first side to experience the energy Aberdeen bring to the top table. A round of fixtures later, Aberdeen haven’t quite managed to sustain that momentum, but they are sitting eighth in the table, just three points behind fifth-placed Motherwell, who they narrowly lost 4-3 to in their last game.  

With nothing guaranteed in the SWPL1, the Celts will need to ensure they’re on the money for the full 90 minutes to pick up a vital three points.

Winter wonders wowing 

Celtic’s two winter signings Jacynta and Izzy Atkinson are enjoying a new lease of life in the Hoops.  

After an impressive pre-season and start to competitive action which resulted in a recall into the Irish senior squad, Izzy Atkinson was unfortunate to return from camp with an injury that hampered her return to club action. But with her minutes slowly building back up, Celts can again get a good look at what the young exciting attacker has to offer.

Australian forward Jacynta has also been enjoying a fruitful patch in the Hoops. Introduced to one of Alonso’s two 10 roles away from her traditional winger position for Celtic, Jacynta has excelled in that role picking up three goals so far this season and playing provider when needed. The 20-year-old was another who seen her opportunities cut short through injury, but her hard work and impressive form on the training and match pitches have seen her cement her position in the starting line-up behind striker Charlie Wellings and Clarissa Larisey.

Alonso looking to reward Celtic faithful 

Fran Alonso knows how important to put on a show is at Celtic, and he hopes to reward the fans with a win in style on Sunday.

"We’ve had more spectators in the last home games and we couldn’t give them the three points, and we are a little disappointed with that, so I would love to encourage fans to come and support us. It was an amazing atmosphere at the semi-final of the cup and great to see all the young people coming, so it would be great if we could have a big attendance supporting the girls,” he said.

Only way to watch the Ghirls this weekend

With no broadcast available this weekend, it’s the perfect opportunity to get out and behind the Celts. If you’ve caught un onscreen before but never managed to make it along, why not take the chance and come along to the Penny Cars for what’s set to be an intriguing match between two dangerous teams.

Tickets for the 2pm kick-off can be bought here.
