One of the most intriguing Scottish Cup quarter-final ties is Celtic’s visit to Easter Road to take on Hibernian.
Celtic’s poor recent record at Easter Road is the main reason the tie could go either way. The Hoops have failed to win on their last three visits to the Edinburgh team.
Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers has yet to win a trip to Easter Road, with two defeats and a draw his record. The most recent game at Easter Road between the teams saw Hibernian record a deserved 2-0 win in December.
Of course, it has to remembered that Neil Lennon was in charge of the Hibees in three matches. How Hibernian fare under his yet to be named predecessor remains to be seen.
If the game was at Celtic Park you would think the Hoops would be big favourites. Indeed, Celtic recently defeated Hibernian 2-0 at Celtic Park.
However, as the game is at Easter Road, Hibernian do have a more than decent chance of pulling off what would be an upset.
When you consider that Celtic have yet to lose a domestic cup tie under the management of Brendan Rodgers, it shows the huge task that will face Hibs next month.
But if they want encouragement, all they have to do is take a look back to their last three home league games against Celtic.
