Celtic have nothing to fear from Motherwell in Scottish Cup final

Brendan Rodgers - Football Weeks

Celtic booked their place in the final of the Scottish Cup against Motherwell on Saturday, May 19 after thrashing Rangers 4-0 in the semi-final. The Hoops look set to win their seventh consecutive Scottish Premiership title, so success in the Cup will see them seal back-to-back domestic trebles.

It will be the second time Motherwell clash with Celtic in a cup final this season, having finished runners-up to Brendan Rodgers side in the League Cup in November, but they may not be able to stop the Bhoys this time either.

Motherwell’s Scottish Cup run this season

  • (20/1/18) Motherwell 2-0 Hamilton Academical
  • (10/2/18) Dundee FC 0-2 Motherwell
  • (4/3/18) Motherwell 2-1 Hearts
  • (14/4/18) Motherwell 3-0 Aberdeen

Celtic’s Scottish Cup run

  • (10/2/18) Celtic 3-2 Partick Thistle
  • (3/3/18) Celtic 3-0 Greenock Morton
  • (15/4/18) Celtic 4-0 Rangers

Both sides have had convincing cup runs to make it this far, but Celtic have dominated head-to-heads with Motherwell in recent years. The Bhoys have lost just once to the Steelmen since 2013 but have been held to a draw in their two away meetings this season.
