Aberdeen vs Celtic Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Celtic are tipped to beat Aberdeen in the Scottish FA Cup semi final at Hampden Park. The Hoops are tipped to earn a win to nil at 2.50 having kept clean sheets in four of their last five matches.

Aberdeen FC Form & Team News


Aberdeen earned a 2-0 victory over Rangers to book their place in the semi final. Goals in each half from Niall McGinn and Connor McLennan were enough to secure the win.

The Dons head into Sunday's clash off the back of a 2-0 win over Dundee in the Scottish Premiership. Derek Mcinnes' men have been inconsistent with three wins and as many draws from their last eight matches. Their patchy form means they are priced at 6.00 to win on Sunday while a draw is set at 4.00.

Aberdeen will be without Key midfielder Graeme Shinnie who is suspended for the clash. Sam Cosgrove is expected to continue in attack, although the striker has scored just once in four matches against Celtic.

Celtic FC Form & Team News


Celtic overcame Hibernian 2-0 in the previous round of the competition with James Forrest and Scott Brown getting the goals. The Hoops were surprisingly held to a 0-0 draw at home by Livingston in the Scottish Premiership Saturday.

Neil Lennon's men are defending champions of the Scottish Cup having won the last two titles. They are backed at odds of 1.53 to reach the final having won three of their last four matches across all competitions.

Celtic have been solid at the back lately with center backs Jozo Simunovic and Kristoffer Ajer helping the team to four clean sheets in their last five matches. Both men should feature on Sunday with Odsonne Edouard expected to continue in attack having scored five goals in his last eight matches.

Aberdeen vs Celtic Head-to-Head


Celtic have a 78-12 advantage with 10 draws from 100 previous matches against Aberdeen. The Hoops have won four of the last six meetings, keeping four clean sheets in that run. Both teams played out a 0-0 draw in a Premiership clash at Parkhead in March.

Aberdeen vs Celtic Match Up


Cosgrove usually leads the line for Aberdeen but the striker has scored just one goal in four matches against Celtic. The 22-year-old could find himself isolated in attack on Sunday and should struggle against the champions.

Celtic have kept clean sheets in four of their last five matches across all competitions thanks to Simunovic and Ajer. Both men will be confident of shutting out the Aberdeen attack, while Edouard will be looking to add to his tally of five goals in his last eight matches.
