The semifinals of the Scottish cup are this weekend, as St. Mirren take on St. Johnston while Dundee take on Hibernian in the other clash. St. Mirren vs St Johnstone will be the second semifinal that will take place on Sunday at Hampden with kickoff at 16:15.

St Johnstone on the other hand faced Steven Gerrard’s boys Rangers in a game that also ended in a penalty shootout. The game ended 1-1 after extra time and 2-4 after penalties.
Callum Davidson’s side will be looking to lift another trophy this year after winning the League cup for the first time in February. Generally, The Saints have had a good year as they have only lost three of their 20 matches in 2021.
