The Scottish Cup semi-final details have been confirmed and it’s an early rise for Hearts and Hibs fans.
The competition’s last four this year will see an Edinburgh derby contested whilst Aberdeen play Celtic in the other Hampden tie.
The Dons played Celtic at this stage in the competition last year, eventually losing 3-0. Hearts and Hibs meanwhile are just off the back of a Premiership Edinburgh derby, in which the Jambos sent a clear warning to their rivals with a 3-1 win.
Now it’s been confirmed when these two battles will take place. For Hearts and Hibs, it’s an early start, with their kick-off time set for 12:15 on Saturday 11th April. The match will also be shown on the BBC and Premier Sports.
Aberdeen Celtic meanwhile will take place the next day with a 3pm kick-off, a game also set to be broadcast live on TV.
A place in the Scottish Cup final awaits the victor of these two ties, which will play out before the Premiership season concludes due to Hampden’s use at Euro 2020.
