Celtic News and Form
Celtic claimed a 2-1 win over Hearts last weekend in the final weekend of Premiership action. That was their fourth win in a row against them this season in all competitions. So with the Premiership title wrapped up again, and with the League Cup in the bag again, Celtic have another shot at a treble. They have had a really easy time of things in the Scottish FA Cup this season, scoring ten unanswered goals across their three matches.
They opened with a 5-0 win over St Johnston and then took 2-0 and 3-0 away wins at Hibs and Aberdeen respectively. Celtic have lost just one of their last fourteen games across all competitions, which was their recent Old Firm derby reverse in the league against Rangers. Since a 2-1 away win at Hearts back at the end of February in the league, Celtic have conceded just four goals in their following twelve games. It’s been pretty amazing again. They have won the last two FA Cup titles (against Aberdeen and Motherwell). They have won on each of their last seven visits to the FA Cup Final.

Hearts News and Form
The last time that Hearts won the FA Cup was back in 2006 when they beat Gretna on a penalty shoot out. This is their first appearance in the final since them. Hearts are eight-time winners of the FA Cup in their history. But they will go to Hampden Park on the weekends heavy underdogs because it has been a poor season for them. They finished sixth in the Championship group of the Premiership this season, and their form lately leaves a lot to be desired.
Hearts are W2 D1 L7 in their last ten games across all competitions. So the only place where they have found a bit of cheer has been in the FA Cup. They opened with a 1-0 home win over Livingston, before thumping Auchinleck 4-0. They then needed a replay to get past Partick before taking a comfortable 3-0 win over Inverness in the semifinals. Given that Hearts have taken just one clean sheet in their last eleven games, the Jambos have a big uphill task ahead of them on the weekend.
