The Light Blues will be hosting the Dons at replays next week. The Gers have gone 13 matches without facing a defeat at Ibrox, Given that, Steven Gerrard’s side has the odds to succeed.

Inverness may compete against Hearts or Thistle.

The fixture against the Jags and the Jambos is difficult to predict since both the sides couldn’t be productive in their recent fixtures. And moreover, their success rate at the Scottish Cup looks similar.

Celtic could play Hearts in the final.

The Hoops might beat past the Light Blues in the Semifinals. Neil Lennon’s side have the upper hand in terms of statistics and history.

And the Light Blues have won only one game in their last three meeting with the table toppers which includes a massive defeat in the last year’s Scottish Cup semi-final.

The semifinals are set to be played on the weekend of 13 April.

The Scottish Cup final will be played at Hampden Park, Glasgow on May 25.
