Hearts vs Celtic Match Preview
Celtic are potentially 90 minutes away from creating football history and while it may not be as straightforward as some will surely expect, the ‘treble Treble’ should be theirs.
No club in a major footballing nation has ever won the three main domestic trophies in three consecutive years, but that is what Celtic will achieve if they lift the Scottish Cup at the end of the final against Hearts.
Having won the last four of their five meetings with the Jam Tarts this season, most recently 2-1 at home last Sunday, it would be a major surprise if Neil Lennon’s side slipped up at the final hurdle.
Lennon rested several players for that last Premiership game of the campaign and it is natural to think that if he had fielded his full-strength line-up, the margin of victory would have been bigger than one goal with Mikey Johnston scoring the winner six minutes from full time.
But this is the Scottish Cup Final and there is no question Hearts will be up for it, contesting the showdown for the first time since 2012 when they dished out a 5-1 rout to their Edinburgh rivals Hibernian.
Ultimately, Craig Levein’s side will probably not be good enough to stop Celtic from rewriting the record books, especially as their form has nosedived since the autumn, but they are backed to be sufficiently inspired by the occasion to at least make it a competitive contest.
