Celtic v Rangers FA Cup Betting Tips
Well, this is always an occasion to look forward to, because it is one of those occasions where you can toss the league form book out of the window. This semi-final clash in the FA Cup comes after last season’s epic FA Cup Final between the two Glasgow rivals. Rangers pulled off an upset in that one by winning a penalty shoot-out after a 2-2 draw at 120 minutes. These two have already gone head to head four times this season and Celtic have been on top with a W3 D1 record having been posted across the league and the League Cup meetings. Rangers have netted exactly one goal in three of those four games, failing to net in the other. Over 2.5 goals at Coral for this semi-final 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). The Gers are unbeaten in their last eight games in all competitions (W5 D3) and they have four clean sheets in their last five.
It’s has been a tremendous season from Celtic and they are closing in on a treble after having breezed to the Premiership title and bagging the League Cup along the way. Celtic are now unbeaten in their last 26 games across all competitions now, winning 22 of those games in that sequence. There may be signs of them having taken their foot off the gas a bit through as they have slipped to W3 D3 in their last six though and one of those draws were against Rangers. Celtic remain unbeaten in the Scottish premiership this season. In the anytime goalscorer market for them, Leigh Griffiths and Moussa Dembele are 5/6 joint-favourites to get on the scoreboard. Up in the Coral 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. Can Rangers, by hook or by crook, pull off another FA Cup upset against their rivals? The two will meet again in the league on April 29th.
