Scottish League Cup Predictions by FootballPredictions.com
Established back in 1946, Scottish League Cup is an annual cup competition, which usually starts in early July, and ends in early December.
The Scottish League Cup final is traditionally played at Hampden Park, the stadium which has the capacity of 51,866 people.
Rangers defeated Aberdeen 4-0 in the first Scottish League Cup final in the 1946/47 season. The Gers outclassed the Dons 4-0 in front of 82,700 spectators at Hampden Park.
Nowadays, 40 teams compete for the Scottish League Cup title, with five clubs being placed in eight groups at the start of the tournament.
In the second round of the competition, 16 teams face each other in single-leg ties. If the game ends in a draw, the winner is decided after extra-time or on penalties.
Quarter-finals, semi-finals and the title game are played as single legs as well. Unlike Scottish FA Cup, the Scottish League Cup winner is not guaranteed a place in European competitions.
Over the years Celtic and Rangers have established themselves as the dominant forces in Scottish football. Similar to Scotland Premiership, the Hoops and the Gers are the most successful clubs in the Scottish League Cup history.
Rangers clinched their 27th trophy in the 2010/2011 season, with the team beating Celtic in the Old Firm derby in the title game.
The Hoops, on the other hand, lifted their 19th title in the 2019/2020 season, with the team recording a 1-0 win over Steven Gerrard’s troops at Hampden Park in the final of the competition.
As for Scottish League Cup records, you should bear in mind that Celtic crushed Rangers 7-1 in the 1957/1958 season, which is the biggest win in the tournament history.
Joe Harper is leading the Scottish League Cup all-time goal-scoring chart as he netted 74 goals in the competition.
