Celtic vs Aberdeen
Scottish League Cup final time at Hampden Park with a familiar side involved as Celtic and Aberdeen go head-to-head.
Since Rangers' demotion to League Two some years ago Celtic have had little competition in Scottish football. With what competition they have had Aberdeen have probably been their closest rivals but even the North Scottish club could not touch them as Celtic have firmly dominated Scottish football for years now. This current Aberdeen squad is probably the weakest during all of this period and while Celtic's squad isn't the strongest either it is still better than any other side in this country.
The head-to-head record reads very grimly for Aberdeen as Celtic have won 11 of the last 12 matches in all competitions.
At the end of the day, very little explanation is needed when involving Celtic in a Scottish football match. If they turn up they win. Aberdeen's only hope is that the Celtic players are a little fatigued after their Europa League win over Rosenborg. However, it seemed to be a relatively comfortable victory and there is very little time difference between Norway and Scotland so any jet lag will be minimal.
Expect Celtic to lift another trophy, hopefully after 90 minutes.
