Celtic have clearly been the more dominant team in recent duels with Aberdeen, winning four of their last five meetings. The situation is pretty similar if we look at the overall H2H record between these two teams—182-67-71 in favour of Celtic.

Aberdeen preview: Hoping for a miracle

While Aberdeen have been in solid form lately since they stayed unbeaten in their last four games, they were still only ninth at the end of the regular season in the Premiership, which means that they'll play the last five games of the season in the Relegation Group.

With that in mind, eliminating Celtic to reach the final of the FA Cup would be a small miracle, especially since the last time Aberdeen reached the final of the FA Cup was back in 2017.

When it comes to team news, Slobodan Rubezic remains on the sidelines with a knee injury.

Celtic preview: Chasing the double

With Rangers failing to win their last two matches in the Premiership, Celtic enter the final five-game stretch with a three-point advantage in the title race. Given that they're also close to getting to the FA Cup final, their fans are certainly hoping for multiple trophies in the next month or so.

Celtic enter this match on a run of five games without a loss and if they get to the final, they'll play for their sixth FA Cup win in eight seasons.

Meanwhile, Daizen Maeda, Liam Scales, and James McCarthy are on Celtic's injury list at this time.

Player to watch: Matt O'Riley

The young Danish international is having a fantastic season and he's one of the key reasons why Celtic are close to winning multiple trophies. After all, he's leading his team in both goals (13) and assists (11) in the Premiership this season.

Can O'Riley push Celtic to the final?

While O'Riley has yet to score a goal in the FA Cup this season, he's had a solid track record against Aberdeen during his career. In eight games against them, O'Riley has scored twice and added four assists, winning seven of those duels.
