The Tshwane side has managed just one win in their last 13 league matches, claiming eight points from a possible 39 in the sequence.

The Bloemfontein side has won just once since the turn of the year: their first game in 2018 which brought a 2-1 home victory against Golden Arrows.

In head-to-head stats, Celtic and SuperSport have met in 48 league matches since 1990. Each side has claimed 11 wins in the rivalry, while no less than 26 matches have ended in draws.
