Rangers to beat Hibernian @ 1.75 (888Sport) – 3 points
Rangers v Hibernian – Over 2.5 goals @ 1.85 (888Sport) – 2 points
Rangers come into this game against Hibernian looking to complete the league and cup double on their way to the Premiership. This game holds good significance for them as they can progress to Europe through the Europa League by winning this game, which would set up a good season for them to rebuild on. They have beaten Hibs thrice an lost twice, and all but 1 game so a lot of entertainment in these encounters with a lot of goals being scored on either end. Rangers will look to hitmen Waghorn, Miller and Holt to help them in their goal scoring exploits. The three of them netted 44 out of the 88 goals scored by Rangers this campaign and nothing to beat taking victory over Hibs yet again this season.
Hibs are quite de-moralised after losing the playoff semi-finals which means they will spend another season in the Championship, and if their recent form is anything to go by, they should struggle where they drew 2-2 and lost 3-2 to Falkirk. Hibs have been playing very competitive football through out but the morale in the squad will be down after losing late on in the 92nd minute, while their opponents Rangers have rested for 3 weeks. Hibs scoring has been decent for the season with Cummings & Keatings netting 27 out of 59 goals that the team have scored.
Defences will look to keep things tight but this cup final looks like it will have a lot of goals flowing as both teams want to win. Rangers to get into Europe while Hibernian to cheer about something. The performances of Rangers have been good winning 3 out of the 4 games, while not focussed much on the 5th game which was a dead rubber. I expect Rangers to take this game, but don’t be surprised if you see 3 goals flowing through the match.
