Celtic face their Glasgow rivals again in another derby clash today at 2pm in the Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden Park.

It comes two weeks after their last encounter, the Celts winning 2-1 at Ibrox to take a six-point advantage into the final games of a long season. Today’s game comes with an entirely different prospect with the chance to reach a Scottish Cup final and face Hearts at the end of May for a potential treble-winning season.

Ange Postecoglou could start Kyogo Furuhashi today after Giorgos Giakoumakis was ruled out during the week.

Furuhashi made his comeback from a hamstring injury as a 74th-minute substitute in Celtic’s 7-0 win over St Johnstone last Saturday, after Giakoumakis went off early in the game with a minor injury in the same area.

With both the teams just announced this is how the Hoops will line up today at Hampden park:

So nothing unusual about this line up really, all eyes would have been fixed on the striker’s position as the rest of the team is what we have seen for the past few weeks. Ange has decided to bring Maeda in to lead the line with Abada coming in from the start.

Kyogo is on a really strong-looking bench if needed.
