Celtic vs Aberdeen
League: Scottish Cup Final
Date: Saturday, 27th May 2017
Time: Kick off at 16:00
Venue: Hampden Park, Glasgow
The club Celtic Glasgow is the undisputed number 1 in Scotland. This can also be seen quite easily by looking at the final table of the season 2016/2017. There Celtic could once again secure the Scottish championship in a very impressive way. Finally, the team of coach Brandon Rodgers undefeated champion in the Premiership, bringing through unbelievable 106 points through 34 wins and 4 draws. With this, Celtic Glasgow set a new point marker in the Scottish league, ending with an advantage of 30 points on FC Aberdeen. Last weekend the coach of Brandon Rodgers also won his last league match at home in Celtic Park with goals from Leigh Griffiths and Stuart Armstrong 2-0 against Heart of Midlothian, and will once again be celebrating extensively with the nearly 60,000 spectators in the stadium. Celtic Glasgow were also able to qualify for the group stage of the Champions League in the beginning of the season, where the team in a damn heavy group had no chance of progress. But after all, it was enough to win a draw against Manchester City twice, and the scots in Mönchengladbach also won a 1: 1 draw. In the Scottish Cup, Celtic beat the Rangers 2-0 in the semi-final to secure the final ticket.
Celtic Glasgow has not lost a single game in the Scottish league and secured the championship with an incredible lead. In addition, Brendan Rodgers and his team have already won the League Cup this season and now the triple will be done perfectly on Saturday. But the question remains, perhaps, until the kick-off, whether the still beaten Dembele will be enough for an assignment.
Provisional lineup: Gordon; Funny, Boyata, Sviatchenko, Tierney; Bitton, Brown; Armstrong, Forrest, Sinclair; Dembele
FC Aberdeen is a football club from the third largest Scottish city and in 1985 the club won the championship in Scotland. At that time, the team was still coached by Alex Ferguson and was also very successful on the international stage. In 1983 he even won the Cup trophy of Real Madrid. In the current season the team of coach Derek McInnes secured the 2nd table place behind Celtic Glasgow and thus a good place for themselves. In the battle for the championship the Dons had no chance against Celtic Glasgow with 30 points behind. In the league, Aberdeen had recently suffered a 3-1 defeat in the home game against Celtic, where the game had actually gone after 11 minutes. Finally the guest led by 3: 0. On the penultimate match day, Glasgow Rangers were much closer to the game, and FC Aberdeen were able to score a 2-1 win over Graeme Shinnie and Ryan Christie. Last Sunday, the Donns had a strong performance at Partick Thistle in the last season, and there were two goals from Ryan Christie and a Scott Wright hat-trick, a 6: 0 success to celebrate. In the Scottish FA Cup, FC Aberdeen were in the semi-final with FC Hibernian, and here the team from Derek McInnes could end up a little happy with an own goal of the opponent with 3: 2 and make the final draw perfect.
The coach Derek McInnes has played a great season with his team and now Aberdeen will try everything in the Scottish Cup final to make a great surprise against the overly powerful Celtic Glasgow. There are no big injuries at the moment.
Provisional lineup: Lewis; Logan, Considine, Taylor, Reynolds; O’Connor, McLean, Christie, Hayes, Rooney, Wright.
