Scottish Cup 2020-21

The Scottish Football Association Challenge Cup, also known as the Scottish Cup, consists of 102 teams and was founded 147 years ago; since then, Celtic have won the competition the most times (39 times). The winner of the competition not only will have the honour and the trophy, but will also qualify for the UEFA Europa League.

The tournament starts alongside the regular Scottish Football Season, in the middle of August and is also the last game of the domestic season, with the final commencing in May. It’s a knockout tournament, with each draw random and starts all the way down in the Preliminary Round with teams competing from the amateur and semi-professional leagues of Scottish football, with the highest-ranking teams entering the competition in the 4th round in January. Both Semi-Final rounds are played at neutral stadiums, usually Hampden Park and occasionally Celtic Park and the Ibrox Stadium. This is the same for the final.

Who are the favourites?

I don’t think this will be a surprise to many, as these are the two sides that have dominated Scottish Football for many years, but Celtic and Rangers are by far the favourites to win the competition. Celtic have won the last 3 competitions, beating Hearts, Motherwell and Aberdeen in each of them. As they not only hold the record for the most competition wins, they also hold the title for the Scottish Premier League, and have done so for the last 9 years, they are undoubtably the powerhouse of Scottish football. Celtic Park is not a nice travel for any away side as the atmosphere is phenomenally loud, meaning Celtic rarely lose a home game. Celtic have recently changed to a 3 at the back system, with sturdy centre-half Shane Duffy at the forefront. A versatile midfield three, who each complement each other, with Oliver Ntcham probably the most technical in the side and he has the authority to move regularly into advanced positions. Odsonne Edouard leads the line upfront and is some talent, consistently winning the golden boot season-on-season. However, Celtic have been struggling in recent times, having lost the Old Firm Derby to Rangers.

Rangers sit top of the Scottish Premier League, full of hope to win their 1st league title since 2011 and their 1st Scottish Cup win in 11 years. Under the influence of manager Steven Gerrard, Rangers are full of energy and optimism. Set up in a 4-3-3, Rangers possess power and pace on the break with the likes of star player, Ryan Kent, who can take on players with ease. Goal scorer Alfredo Morelos leads the line for Rangers, the Columbian always proves a threat in the box.

Both sides have been criticised for their lack of success in European competitions and are both trying to change that. Its also fair to say that this competition will not be the priority for either team, but I would be very surprised if one of these two teams didn’t win the competition.
