Celtic v Motherwell Scottish FA Cup Betting Tips

Celtic have produced yet another dominant season in Scotland, however, heading towards the FA Cup final on the weekend their form has taken a little dip. Since their semi-final win over Rangers in mid-April Celtic have gone W2 D1 L2 in their last five games suffering defeats in the Premiership against Hibernian and Aberdeen. They are playing without pressure or motive at the moment as they won the Premiership at the end of last month against Rangers, so they have probably eased off a little. Still surprisingly though Celtic have not hit the back of the net in either of the last two games played. In the semi-final clash against Rangers, Celtic thumped their rivals 4-0 and overall in this season’s FA Cup campaign, Celtic have been comfortable. They opened with a 5-0 win over Brechin before a 3-2 win over Partick Thistle. Celtic then eased past Greenock Morton in the quarter finals before that meeting with Rangers in the final four. So they haven’t given much up at the back and Celtic to win to nil is at 20/21 odds at bet365* (Betting Odds taken at 5:27 p.m. on May 16th, 2018).

The two sides have already met four times this season with Celtic winning two and drawn two of the games. Their most recent meeting was back in mid-March when the two played out a 0-0 draw at Fir Park. It means that Celtic have taken two clean sheets and conceded just two goals in total against Motherwell this season. Back in November the two clashed in the League Cup final with Celtic taking a 2-0 victory. Backing a repeat of that scoreline of a 2-0 win for Celtic in the bet365 correct score market can be done at 11/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 5:27 p.m. on May 16th, 2018). Celtic are currently on a 10 match undefeated streak of form against Motherwell in all competitions, winning eight of those. Five of those a wins Celtic got with a clean sheet.

Motherwell do have a little bit of form behind them as they head to Hampden Park. The Well have won three of their last four games and they have scored at least two goals in four of their last six. They have been solid at the back as well having conceded in just two of their last seven matches. They had a tough semi final game against Aberdeen to get through but the Well actually came through that very comfortably with a 3-0 victory against the odds. Motherwell have been pretty much untroubled through the FA Cup campaign this season opening with back-to-back 2-0 wins over Hamilton Academical and then Dundee. In the quarter-finals they had a tight squeeze to get past Hearts by a 2-1 Scoreline. Both teams to score in the final returns even money odds* (Betting Odds taken at 5:27 p.m. on May 16th, 2018). Motherwell will be heavy underdogs at Hampden Park on the weekend, so will they be able to come up with something special to break their FA Cup final hoodoo against Celtic?

Who will win – Celtic v Motherwell Scottish FA Cup Predictions

By and large Celtic just look relentless and they should be able to complete the domestic treble on the weekend. They have already gotten the better of Motherwell in the League Cup final this season and they can take them down at Hampden Park once again. Celtic to win to nil.
