Hibs are capable of giving Celtic a fright

Hibs manager Neil Lennon
1 of 1

Betfred League Cup semi-final
BT Sport 1, 12.15pm Saturday

Hibs have drawn with Celtic and beaten Rangers on their two visits to Glasgow this season, yet they have been virtually written off for their Betfred Cup semi-final against the Bhoys.

And they should be backed on the handicap to at least give the Hoops a scare.

Celtic return with a quick turnaround after being dismantled by Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Their 59-match unbeaten domestic record justifies their enormously restrictive odds, but Neil Lennon will have his Hibs players well up for this and they should give a defensively-dodgy Celtic a tough time.

Recommendations
Hibs +2 on handicap
3pts 4-5 Sky Bet
Hibs to score two or more goals
1pt 17-5 Coral

Team news
Hibs
Neil Lennon's side will miss defenders Darren McGregor and Liam Fontaine.
Celtic

Key stat
Hibs have scored at least twice in their last three games in Glasgow - against Aberdeen, Rangers and Celtic.
