Scottish Cup Odds
Who wins the Scottish Cup 2019/2020?
Who will win the 2019-20 Scottish Cup?
After the 2018-19 Scottish Cup final ended with Celtic beating Hearts 2-1 to win the Scottish Cup for the third time in a row and to win their 39th Scottish Cup in total. Here we look ahead to see if they can make it four in a row next season or if anyone else can compete with the high flying Celts. Other teams that may think they have a chance at winning Scotland’s most prestigious football competition are Rangers, last year’s finalists Hearts, Kilmarnock and Aberdeen.
The 2019-20 season will also be the first time ever, at least one match per round will be televised live on BBC Scotland which will be very important to increase the Scottish football fanbase around the UK.
Celtic have been incredible in the past few years of Scottish football. They have won the treble for the past three years and many are calling the impressive feat the “treble treble.” After losing Brendan Rodgers to Leicester City last season, it’ll be tough to replicate the impressive form the club have shown without him.
If Celtic are going to compete in the Champions League next year it may be too much for them to compete in all four competitions and may have to sacrifice a competition if they are to still have a successful season.
Steven Gerrard’s Rangers have been doing well in Scottish football of recent years and may well target the Scottish Cup as a possible bit of silverware. If they can target the Scottish Cup, this could be their best chance at winning a trophy in the 2019-20 season with Celtic possibly concentrating on having a good Champions League run.
Last year’s finalists Hearts had an incredible cup run to reach the final beating teams such as Inverness, Partick Thistle and Auchinleck Talbot. After losing to Celtic, they’ll be desperate to improve on last year’s result by going one further next year under manager Craig Levein.
Stephen Robinson’s Motherwell FC were the 2017-18 Scottish Cup finalists losing to Celtic 2-0 in the final thanks to first half goals from McGregor and Ntcham. They’ll hope they can have a good cup run next year and maybe even lift the cup by the end of May. Other sides that will hope a bit of luck can go their way next year in the Cup are teams like Kilmarnock, Derek McInnes’ Aberdeen and Paul Heckingbottom’s Hibernian. Outsiders such as Tommy Wright’s St Johnstone FC, and Gary Holt’s Livingston FC.
