HIBS v Ross County was a hard-fought League Cup Final and you have to wonder what it's taken out of both sides.

Let's start with winners Ross County who netted a last-minute clincher to break Hibees hearts.

It's been just three days since their Hampden heroics and they head to a St Johnstone side out or form but still battling for a top-six slot.

County gaffer Jim McIntyre advised his players to stay off the booze ahead of the trip to Perth and Saturday's Highland derby with Inverness.

Midfielder Michael Gardyne responded with a classic tweet saying he was hoping for a text saying go out and sink some Jagerbombs – take tomorrow off. If Gardyne and his pals did go on a bender they may well bomb tonight – and by the way who could blame if they did celebrate their club's first major honour.

Hungover or not the Hibs win will have taken a lot out the players and I can't see them following up with three points in Perth. Saints haven't been in the best of form but have taken four points from County this season and have lost just once at home to the men from Dingwall.

They look big enough at 6-4 with McBookie and William Hill and both to score is on at 7-8 at 888sport. Both meetings this season have brought up the market as have five of eight at McDiarmid Park.

Hibs need to pick themselves off the floor for their Scottish Cup quarter-final replay at Inverness. Again I'm opposing the League Cup finalists and backing holders Inverness to keep alive hopes of a Highland double.

The Premiership side are underdogs but home advantage could swing it their way. ICT are a biggest 19-10 at Ladbrokes so you can keep the stalemate on side and back draw no bet at 5-6 with boylesports.

It will be tough for Alan Stubbs to lift his players and they look too short at a best 13-8 with Betfred.

In the Champions League I expect home wins for Barcelona and Bayern against Arsenal and Juventus respectively. The double pays 4-5 at McBookie but my advice is both to win and over 2.5 match goals at 23-10 with bet365.
