Celtic v Rangers FA Cup Betting Tips
This is going to be one of those full blooded battles where league form doesn’t really matter. This is a semi-final showdown between the Glasgow duo. They battled it out in the final last season with Rangers causing an upset after a 2-2 draw by winning out in a penalty shoot-out. These two have met four times this season already and Celtic have a 3-1 head to head lead from those meetings which were in the league and League Cup. Rangers scored exactly one goal in three of those four games, failing to net in the other. Over 2.5 goals at William Hill for this show will return you a price of 4/7. The last win in 90 minutes that Rangers posted over Celtic was in the league back in March 20121 and have gone D2 L5 against their rivals since then (including that draw in the Cup Final last season). Rangers look set to finish third in the Premiership this season and they are unbeaten in their last eight games in all competitions (W5 D3). They have four clean sheets in their last five.
Celtic have had an immense season having already wrapped up the league title easily along with the League Cup. Can they complete the treble? They are unbeaten in their last 26 games across all competitions now, winning 22 of those games in that sequence. They have gone W3 D3 in their last six though and one of those draws were against Rangers. Probably has something to do with them taking their foot off the gas after such an easy run to the title. Celtic remain unbeaten in the Scottish Premiership this season. In the anytime goalscorer market, Leigh Griffiths and Moussa Dembele are 5/6 joint-favourites to get on the scoreboard. Up in the William Hill Correct score market, there is a 7/1 short price on a Celtic 2-0 win. However, it may be a little closer than that and the 2-1 Celtic win is a 15/2 option. Celtic go into this one obviously as strong favourites, but Rangers are doing well lately and are looking to push forward under new boss Pedro Caixinha. These two will meet again in the league on April 29th.
Who will win – Celtic v Rangers FA Cup Predictions
Celtic To Win: It’s hard not to roll with Celtic here who are having an incredible season. They are likely going to take a step towards more silverware with a win in this one and the game will probably go over the 2.5 goal line.
