Partick Thistle vs Arbroath betting tips: Scottish League Cup Second Round preview, predictions and odds

Match preview

Who will progress through this all-Championship affair at Firhill?

Arbroath topped Group E in this competition last month with maximum points, notably beating Premiership St Mirren in Paisley.

Despite being the only part-time club in the second-tier, the Red Lichties narrowly missed out on promotion to the top-flight last season.

Dick Campbell’s men were only just pipped to the title by Kilmarnock, before falling in the play-off semis against Inverness Caley Thistle.

Right now though, following Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Hamilton Accies, Arbroath are rock bottom of the table, highlighting that last season was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity missed.

Meanwhile, Partick Thistle also fell in last year’s Premiership play-offs, hammered by Inverness in the quarter-finals.

Unlike their visitors, the Jags have made an excellent start to this campaign, sat second following Saturday’s win over Raith.

Ian McCall’s team also topped their League Cup group last month, ending up one point above Killie, who they beat on penalties at Rugby Park.

Now, who will keep their Hampden dream alive by booking their place in the quarter-finals?
