Defending champions Celtic are aiming to reach the Scottish League Cup final for the third time in four seasons as they face Hibernian, who won this tournament 10 years ago but more significantly won the Scottish Cup in May 2016.
The sides met three weeks ago at Parkhead where it took an 80th-minute equaliser from Callum McGregor to earn the Scottish champions a 2-2 draw.
The Hoops will have experienced a tough game against Bayern Munich three days before this game at Hampden Park and with Hibs having a clear week, we see no reason why they can’t get a draw over 90 minutes at an enticing 15/4 to kick off our Hibernian vs Celtic betting predictions.
A Look At Hibernian’s Betting Odds
Hibs’ six-match unbeaten run came to an end at the weekend in a 1-0 home defeat by Aberdeen, although manager Neil Lennon was cursing his luck as he saw Vykintas Slivka hit the post and his side miss a host of good chances.
Prior to the defeat by the Dons, Hibernian had scored in their 12 previous games in all competitions and as we have already mentioned, they breached the Celtic defence twice on the last day of September.
With that in mind, the second of our Hibernian vs Celtic betting tips is for both teams to score inside 90 minutes at 19/20.
A Look At Celtic’s Betting Odds
Celtic are not having it all their own way this season and despite being unbeaten, they are top of the Scottish Premiership only on goal difference from Aberdeen.
The laboured 1-0 victory over Dundee came with a side including a few fringe players, but Leigh Griffiths, Scott Sinclair, Olivier Ntcham, plus a couple of key defenders, all started.
Celtic have been leading at half-time in 75 per cent of their domestic matches this season, but they were held by Hibs when in front at the break so we fancy taking a chance on the same outcome in our Hibernian vs Celtic betting tips at a massive 37/2.
CELTIC 1-0 Dundee – Olivier Ntcham
HIBERNIAN 0-1 Aberdeen
Head-to-head: Celtic 2-2 Hibernian, Hibernian 0-4 Celtic, Celtic 1-0 Hibernian, Hibernian 1-1 Celtic
