The first of the Scottish League Cup semi-finals, presented by Utilita, takes place today when Hibernian face St Johnstone at Tynecastle, kick-off 3.00pm.
Road to the last four: Hibernian have beaten Montrose (3-0), Stranraer (1-0), Aberdeen (2-0) and Dundee United (3-0), with all those games at Easter Road. St Johnstone entered the competition in round three when they beat Rangers 3-1 at Ibrox. They then defeated Morton by the same score in the quarter-final at Cappielow.
League Cup pedigree: Hibernian have won the trophy three times (1972/73, 1991/92 and 2006/07). St Johnstone are yet to get their hands on the silverware but were runners-up in 1969/70 and 1998/99.
Semi-finals: St Johnstone's most recent League Cup semi-final was two years ago when they lost 4-0 to Aberdeen at Tynecastle. Hibs are in the last four for the first time since 2006/07, when they beat St Johnstone 3-1 after extra time at Tynecastle.
Last meeting: The sides haven't met since a Premiership game at McDiarmid Park in March 2014 when Saints won 2-0 with goals from Steven MacLean and Ryan McGivern (og). The visitors had Danny Haynes sent off.
Team news: Forward Dom Malonga and goalkeeper Antonio Reguero this week left Easter Road so Otso Virtanen is likely to be added to the squad. Fellow recent signing Kevin Thomson could also come into contention. St Johnstone have doubts over Murray Davidson and Chris Millar.
Tickets: The match is sold-out.
Match programme: 68-page edition with retro cover, priced £3.
