Celtic vs Rangers Prediction & Betting Tips - Scottish Cup

 by Steve Ashfield | in Football Predictions

Celtic take on Rangers in the Scottish Cup final looking to complete the double. The Bhoys have already won the Scottish Premiership title with Rangers finishing in second place but eight points behind their greatest rivals. Celtic have won this trophy on 41 previous occasions which is seven more than Rangers have managed in their history. They are the present cup holders and not since 2020 has a club won back-to-back Scottish Cups. It was Celtic who achieved that feat and they will be all out to again win this competition.

Celtic - Rangers: Form Analysis

Celtic come into this match having won their last seven straight if you include penalty shootouts. Their most recent outing saw them beat St Mirren 3-2 at home after twice trailing in the match. The penalty shootout came in the semi-finals of this Scottish Cup. They drew 3-3 with Aberdeen and also trailed in that match. Their last defeat was back in March when being defeated 2-0 at Hearts. 11 matches have been played since then without the Celts tasting defeat. With just that Hearts loss in their last 24 games in all competitions, Celtic will be tough to beat this weekend. In this season's Scottish Cup, they have scored 14 goals in their four matches. Celtic are unbeaten in their last nine in the Scottish Cup, their last defeat being inflicted by Rangers in April 2022.

This is the first Celtic v Rangers Scottish Cup final since 2002. It was Rangers who won on that occasion and that's also the last time Celtic lost a Scottish Cup final having won ten finals since then. Rangers have won one trophy this season but would have loved to win the Scottish Premiership title. They were in contention for most of the season but a run of two points from three games in April meant another season without the title. They have only won one of their last three games and recently lost to Celtic 2-1. The Gers have also had to win four games to reach this final, with the last three being won 2-0. This is their toughest task to date though and we tip Celtic to get the win.

Celtic & Rangers Squad Analysis

Celtic have an injury doubt over defender Stephen Walsh. Other than that, manager Brendan Rodgers will have his full squad available to him to choose from. Special attention must be placed on midfielder Matthew O'Riley by Rangers. The 23-year-old Celtic midfielder has been his team’s standout player this season, accumulating an impressive 19 goals and 18 assists in 48 total matches. On the other side, Rangers have several players on their injury list including John Souttar, Tom Lawrence, Danilo and Borna Barisic. James Tavernier has continued his impressive goal scoring feats despite playing the right back position. The Gers' star man has notched a career-high 24 goals in 57 games across all competitions this season.

Our Celtic vs Rangers Prediction

Another league and cup double is on the cards for Celtic. They won the league title by eight points from Rangers and haven't lost to them since a Scottish Cup defeat in May of last year. Celtic are in the better form of thse two clubs at present and that explains the eight-point gap between the two clubs at the end of the league season. Rangers were in with a chance of winning the title for a long part of this season but their form did dip in the final months of the season. Our main Celtic v Rangers prediction is a win for Celtic.
