Motherwell host St Johnstone on Saturday, as the two clubs prepare to face each other in quick succession.
These are the storylines going into the Betfred Cup last 16 tie.
A second meeting in the space of seven days will see a game with a different complexion to the one at McDiarmid Park.
Fir Park will play host to the opportunity to progress to the quarter-finals of the Betfred Cup, with just one further tie to play before a trip to Hampden Park.
A rare cup encounter
A journey back to April 2011 is required to find the last cup meeting between the two sides.
It was a memorable occasion for Motherwell, as the 3-0 victory at Hampden Park sealed a place in the 2010/11 Scottish Cup final.
The last League Cup fixture between the two came in 1969. It was another semi-final at Hampden, with the Saints winning through before being defeated by Celtic in the final.
Two games from Hampden
The last 16 tie represents an opportunity for both sides to play their way to within one game of an appearance at Hampden Park.
Motherwell’s last outing at the national stadium came in the 2018 Scottish Cup final, having also contested the Betfred Cup final in the same season in Mount Florida.
St Johnstone’s last trip to Hampden came in the 2011 Scottish Cup semi-final, where they lost 3-0 to Motherwell.
