Celtic to Win

Celtic are targeting their fifth Scottish Cup success in six years this season and the Bhoys can take one step closer to glory with a win over Glasgow rivals Rangers in the competition’s semi-final on Sunday. Ange Postecoglou’s slick Hoops have already beaten the Gers twice this term and their most recent triumph over their old enemies came as recently as April 3rd. Celtic seem to have the upper hand on their antagonists at the moment, so back them to dash Rangers’ cup hopes.

Both Teams to Score

Both teams has scored with seven minutes of Celtic and Rangers’ last encounter earlier this month and while we don’t expect the sides to register quite so quickly in Sunday’s semi-final, the chances of net rippling at both ends again seem high. The Gers have only failed to score in one of their last nine assignments away from Ibrox, while Celtic have notched at least once in 17 of their last 19 fixtures in all competitions. There will be enough attacking expertise on show at Hampden Park to produce goals at both ends and that’s where we recommend you put your stake.

Over 2.5 Goals

A dominant Celtic rattled home five goals in their last two meetings with Rangers and the Hoops look primed to showcase their superiority over their rivals again on Sunday. Over 2.5 goals has landed in three of the last four tussles between these adversaries overall since May last year and with typical derby day blood and thunder anticipated at Hampden Park, the same market holds tons of appeal at the prices on offer.

Celtic vs Rangers Match Preview and Team News


The injury picture is relatively clear for Celtic ahead of Sunday’s semi-final with midfielder James Forrest the Hoops’ only concern at present. Celtic have won six games on the bounce ahead of this weekend’s crucial tie and their 7-0 rout of St. Johnstone last time out would have provided a timely confidence boost.


Filip Helander, Alfredo Morelos, Ianis Hagi and Nnamdi Ofoborh have all been ruled out for Rangers with varying injury complaints. Tiredness could be a factor for the Gers on Sunday after they were involved in a tough fixture against Sporting Braga in the Europa League on Thursday evening. Though Rangers were ultimately successful, the tie went to extra time.
