Celtic know that they can afford to lose because there is ultimately little danger of them losing their title so long as Rangers are not in the top flight.
But I still think that once the game gets underway there will be a decent atmosphere because of the history between the two teams and sets of supporters.
Hearts have a youthful team who will be going all out to make an impression on Celtic, but I'd fancy that Celtic will be too strong for them.
If they get an early goal, you could imagine they may then go on and win the game quite comfortably.
However, I don't think the performance or result will have any real bearing on what happens in Italy this week.
It is the first game of the Champions League group stages and a big week for the club - but what happens at Tynecastle has no real influence on how Celtic will play or perform on one of the biggest stages of all when they play in Milan on Wednesday night.
The only thing you could imagine is that there could be a few players rested or taken off early with one eye on the midweek game.
