The Scottish Premiership returns with a fresh set of fixtures as Aberdeen play host to Celtic at the Pittodrie Stadium on Wednesday.

The visitors head into the game on a blistering 15-game unbeaten run in all competitions and will look to keep the juggernaut rolling.

Aberdeen continue to struggle for form as they fell to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Livingston last Saturday.

They have now failed to win any of their last four league games, managing two draws and losing two in that time.

With 29 points from 24 games, Aberdeen are currently seventh in the Premiership table, one point off sixth-placed Dundee United.

Meanwhile, Celtic continued their charge for the league title as they claimed an emphatic 4-0 win over Motherwell last time out.

They have now won each of their most recent seven games, while they are unbeaten in their last 15 across all competitions.

Celtic currently sit top of the Premiership standings after claiming 60 points from 25 games, one point above second-placed Rangers.
