Celtic v Aberdeen - Scottish FA Cup Final preview and odds

May 27, 2016 15:00pm - Hampden Park

Scottish FA Cup Final

Scottish champions Celtic will look to complete an historic treble when they take on league runners-up Aberdeen at Hampden Park on Saturday afternoon.

Scottish League Cup final opponents meet again

Having already met in the final of the Scottish League Cup, Celtic and Aberdeen will do battle once again, this time in the Scottish FA Cup final. The Glasgow club came out on top in the previous encounter, cruising to a 3-0 win. What`s more, they have yet to be beaten in the 46 domestic games (38 in the league) that they have played this term.

With such a record it is no surprise that Brendan Rodgers` men have already been dubbed the `Invincibles,` a tag that they will be keen to maintain this weekend. The Hoops come into this game on the back of six-straight wins in all competitions.

While their achievements this term have often been downplayed thanks to the perceived lack of quality in the Scottish top flight, it should be remembered that Celtic have not appeared in a Scottish Cup final since 2013.

Meanwhile, opponents Aberdeen came a distant second to Rodger`s men in the league but they finished the campaign with a decent record by anyone else`s standards. They bagged a total of 76 points in the league and have now reached two cup finals. In total, they have faced Celtic five times this season and have yet to win a single game, highlighting the enormity of the task at hand this weekend.
