Celtic have won the competition 38 times before and Neil Lennon’s team will obviously go into the game as big favorites. Heart of Midlothian, on the other hand, are eight-time winners themselves. Can they somehow pull off a major upset here?
Injuries to key players have severely hampered Hearts throughout the campaign, but they are one of only four teams to inflict a domestic defeat on Celtic this term, beating them 1-0 at Tynecastle in August. They are looking to summon the spirit of 2012 – when they demolished Hibernian 5-1 in the final – as they return to the scene of that memorable triumph bidding to lift the trophy for the ninth time.
Levin is confident striker Uche Ikpeazu and midfielders Peter Haring and Arnaud Djoum will all be fit having missed the 2-1 defeat at Celtic Park on Sunday. But Callum Morrison, Aidan Keena, Ben Garuccio, Demetri Mitchell, Steven Naismith, and Olly Lee are all out with knee injuries.
