MAR 15: SCOTTISH LEAGUE CUP FINAL PREVIEW

genericfootball

IT’S part two of Celtic’s four-game shootout with Dundee United and Ronny Deila will hope to land part one of a domestic treble.

The first instalment at Tannadice was fiery with red cards, incriminations and plenty of video reviews in the aftermath.

Hopefully it will be just as exciting at Hampden on Sunday and after 90 minutes I expect Celtic to be lifting the League Cup.

There’s no doubt they missed cup-tied duo Stuart Armstrong and Gary-Mackay Steven against their former team and both will again be sidelined tomorrow but Virgil van Dijk’s punishment escape could be key.

Kris Commons was another no-show on Tayside but he’ll be back – as could Nir Bitton – and his creativity could be the difference between the teams.

Commons is 9-2 at bet365 to hit the opener and 5-4 at Ladbrokes to score at any time. Leigh Griffiths netted at Tannadice after missing a penalty and is 9-2 (boylesport) to break the deadlock.

United put up a brave fight last week to draw 1-1 but the absence of top scorer Nadir Ciftci will hit them hard.

After three reds last week McBookie go 9-4 there will be a sending off tomorrow and you can get 100-1 any dismissal will be a case of mistaken identity as it was with Paul Paton.

McBookie also go 33-1 Paton, Callum Butcher or van Dijk receive their marching orders for the second game running. Griffiths is 4-1 favourite to be man of the match with McBookie but I’ll be on Commons at 10-1, if he starts. Skipper Brown, who was pictured in a newspaper during the week worse for wear after a night-out, is 6-1 and with something to prove must also have a chance. He was tipped in Saturday’s Daily Record by Chris Sutton.

Celtic are a best 2-7 at McBookie to win the Cup while United are 4-1 at William Hill. To win in 90 minutes the Hoops are 9-20 at Betway with United 7-1 with William Hill and Ladbrokes. The draw pays 4-1 at William Hill.

Ladbrokes offer £25 cashback on selected markets in shops if the game ends in a draw.

    -1 Celtic Evens on skybet, for me Dundee Utd are poor and missing players so it should be pretty comfortable

    Depending on line-ups i’ll be on a couple of goalscorers:

    Griffiths (6/5)
    Has started 3 cup games this season and scored a goal in each. He’s also scored in his last 5 starts for Celtic.

    Johanson (5/2)
    Hasn’t scored in a cup game this season but had run into a bit of goalscoring form since February and has scored in Celtic’s last 5 wins. Often goes beyond the strikers and seems to be getting better and better.

    Good call on Commons! Just waiting for the red card now.

    Well called on Commons. Johansen is playing a bit wider with Commons in there.

    And there it is!
