Celtic will clash heads with Aberdeen in the Scottish League Cup final at Hampden Park. There is no doubt about which team will go in as the favourite, but Derek McInnes would be looking to cause an upset. The Dons lost to the Hoops two years back at the same stage 3-0 and Mcinnes would hope that he and his team could learn from that experience. However, one wouldn’t put it past Celtic to secure another 3-0 victory to bag yet another trophy. Rodgers is yet to lose a domestic cup since he took over at the club and he would definitely want to continue that streak tomorrow.
The Dons could be without the services of Mikey Devlin who is a significant doubt because of his ankle injury, and if he fails to get fit in time, then it would be a big loss for McInnes. Mark Reynolds, Tommie Hoban and Greg Tansey are all long-term absentees and have no chance of making it in the matchday squad.
Rodgers is set to go in with Scott Bain in goal. On the injuries front, Scott Brown is making a comeback and has a good chance of starting the final. Kristoffer Ajer is yet to recover from his face injury after he went through a surgery to repair damages on his eyeball socket. Daniel Arzani and Eboue Kouassi are out for the rest of the season. Jozo Simunovic, Mikey Johnston and Marvin Compper are also unlikely to feature because of fitness issues.
Lewis; Lowe, Considine, McKenna, Logan; Shinnie, Mackay-Steven, Ferguson, McGinn, May, Wilson
Bain; Tierney, Benkovic, Boyata, Lustig; Brown, Ntcham, Christie, McGregor, Forrest; Edouard
Scott Mckenna would have a big task on his hand to keep the likes of James Forrest and Odsonne Edouard silent. A lot will hinge on the young defender’s shoulders, and he would have to step it up big time to keep the Hoops forwards in check. Captain Graeme Shinnie will also have a big role to play in defensive midfield.
Forrest is probably in the form of his life, and he is often hard to contain especially in the first half hour. He should look to make a breakthrough early to put the tie to bed. Apart from him, Ryan Christie has also hit a purple patch, and he would be a major threat going forward.
Celtic win: 4/9
Aberdeen win: 6/1
