The Hoops have been extremely dominant so far in their quest to retain their title, not losing a single match while they have also scored the most and conceded the least to this point.
However, Celtic became unglued in midweek as they were emphatically defeated 6-0 against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League, creating a result everyone included will want to forget.
A first-half red card for Daizen Maeda left the Scottish outfit facing an uphill battle against their La Liga opponents, but Brendan Rogers will be left wanting more from his team.
Heading into this weekend the pressure is now on the defending Scottish Premiership champions as they look to showcase their ability to fight back.
Celtic have created a healthy eight-point gap over their closest challengers in the division, but resting and relying upon that is something that the Hoops can ill-afford to do.
Aberdeen currently sit midtable in the Scottish Premiership, but they do head into this weekend on the back of three matches without a defeat in all competitions.
The Dons defeated Motherwell and then Hibernian in their previous two league outings, showcasing great attacking quality against the Steelmen by scoring four, and tremendous defensive style with a clean sheet against the Hibees.
Aberdeen shared the points with PAOK in the Europa Conference League in midweek, with Jamie McGrath scoring a 70th-minute equaliser to finish the game 2-2.
Barry Robson will be looking for his team to continue their recent performances this weekend, particularly since they are only two points above the relegation zone right now.
On the other hand, three points could lead to the Dons cracking the top half of the Scottish Premiership table, but they will need to be the first team to defeat Celtic in the league this season to achieve that.
