Hibernian should ease into last four of Betfred Cup at expense of Dons

Aberdeen have looked a shade of the back-to-back league runners-up side

Hibernian should be backed to end Aberdeen's Betfred Cup run

Betfred Cup quarter-final
BT Sport 1, 7.45pm Tuesday
Hibs can ease into the semi-finals of the Betfred Cup with a win against Aberdeen.

Neil Lennon's side produced their best display of the season at the weekend at crisis club Dundee and the return of striker Flo Kamberi is massive for them.

The Pittodrie side have looked a shadow of the team who beat Rangers two years in a row into the Ladbrokes Premiership runners-up spot.

They struggle to score, are toothless and play football which is hard to watch at the moment.

Hibs, who relish a physical challenge, were by far the better side when the teams met in a 1-1 draw at Easter Road earlier this season, and they can dump the Dons out of the cup.
