Is Dundee United Vs Celtic on TV? Stream details, kick-off time and team news for Scottish Premiership clash
The Hoops are on their travels this weekend where they will take on a Tangerines side low on confidence
and live on Freeview channel 276
Celtic return to the scene of their Scottish Premiership crowning moment last season as they prepare to descend on Tannadice Park.
Ange Postecoglou’s side chalked up a 2-0 victory over Hearts at Parkhead last weekend and they will be looking to make it five successive league wins with the first Old Firm derby of the season on the horizon.
The Hoops haven’t had European qualifiers to worry about this summer after qualifying atuomatically for the Champions League group stages, where they were drawn against holders Real Madrid, RB Leipzig and Shakhtar Donetsk yesterday.
It has been an emphatic start to their title defence with the Parkhead club able to concentrate fully on domestic business during the opening weeks of the campaign.
Dundee United host the Scottish champions off the back of a dispiriting run of four straight defeats and Jack Ross’ new-look side are in desperate need of a positive result.
The Tayside outfit shipped seven goals to AZ Alkmaar in their Europa Conference League second-leg in the Netherlands before suffering a heavy 4-1 defeat to Hearts at Tynecastle.
Their fortunes didn’t improve last weekend as they slumped to a 3-0 loss at home to St Mirren and Ross now finds himself under pressure early in his reign as Tangerines boss.
Celtic will be aiming to take full advantage of their opponents fragile status ahead of their first meeting with city rivals Rangers the following week.
