Motherwell and Celtic are set to go head to head for the first time this season on Wednesday night.
Brendan Rodgers’ side got the upper hand over Stephen Robinson’s Fir Parkers in both of last season’s cup finals.
But a first meeting with the Glaswegian outfit this term gives the Steelmen an opportunity to bounce back from Saturday’s defeat to Livingston.
It is almost two years to the day since Celtic last notched a victory at Fir Park.
‘Well’s impressive home form last term saw them unfortunate not to take more than two points from the two meetings in Lanarkshire.
An 88th minute equaliser from Scott Sinclair rescued a point for the visitors, before ten-man Motherwell dug in for an impressive goalless draw back in March.
The Steelmen are searching for a fourth win from six games as they prepare for Celtic on Wednesday.
It is also the total number of domestic games in which Celtic have conceded a goal this season.
Only Hibernian, Kilmarnock, Livingston and Partick Thistle have managed to score against the Parkhead outfit this term.
The total number of days since the last meeting between the two teams back in the Scottish Cup final in May.
Motherwell were on the losing end that day, and have a chance to exact some revenge in the first meeting of the 2018/19 campaign.
