After winning their first piece of silverware of the season by defeating Motherwell to win the League Cup, Celtic are on course to win a historic Double Treble of domestic trophies and do so by not losing a single game.

Brendan Rodgers’ side won all three Scottish competitions last season without suffering a defeat and as we’re about to enter December, they’re on course to repeat their outstanding achievement.

No team in the history of Scottish football has ever won back-to-back Trebles but Roberts says that the quality of players in the Celtic squad means that they’re more than capable of making history, but insists that everyone connected with the club will be taking things one game at a time.

Predicted Celtic XI vs Motherwell

  Predicted Celtic XI vs Motherwell Celtic will look bounce back from their midweek defeat in the Champions League and lift the first silverware of the season when they face Motherwell. Brendan Rodgers’ side will look to make it a fourth consecutive domestic trophy triumph and put their 7-1 lost to PSG on Wednesday firmly behind them. Motherwell have won four of their last six games under Stephen Robinson and will look for their first win in nearly two years against Celtic. The two sides advanced to the final with comfortable wins in the semi-final, as the Hoops won 4-2 against Hibernian while Motherwell eased past Rangers with a 2-0 win. When the sides last met just under a year ago, Celtic came from behind to edge out Motherwell in a seven goal thriller at Fir Park. Celtic Mikael Lustig went off injured inside 13 minutes in Paris on Wednesday night and will miss Sunday’s Cup final. Nir Bitton will undergo a late fitness test after picking up a knock in the midweek loss to PSG. Patrick Roberts travelled to Paris and is building up fitness as he recovers from a hamstring injury of his own and could return to the squad on Sunday. Erik Sviatchenko is fully fit but has yet to return to the squad and has fallen down the pecking order behind Nir Bitton in defence. Anthony Ralston remains out with a knee problem that has kept him out of action since the end of September. Motherwell The Steelmen have no injuries going into the game. Youngster Allan Campbell was rested at the weekend and could return to the starting line up having started in nine of his 12 appearances this season.

For all the Old Firm’s dominance, no Scottish side has ever won consecutive domestic trebles and Celtic must guard against tiredness and complacency in the Scottish Cup final. Last season Rodgers presided over an unbeaten domestic season, another first.

Gordon made a double save in quick order and then made another from a Stockley header. Patrick Roberts ( Celtic ) right footed shot from the centre of the box is blocked. Celtic win Scottish Cup to complete unbeaten treble .

He said:

“We have to believe and the manager believes in us. We will keep plugging away and moving on for the games. At the end of the year we can look back and hopefully we can do the same thing. You can see the quality in our side. You see the players who start and who are on the bench.”

Celtic’s next game away to Motherwell on Wednesday night and The Steelmen will be keen for revenge after losing in the cup final, so Roberts and co. will need to be on their games to keep their magnificent run going.
