Aberdeen return to League Cup action in midweek with a semi final meeting against rivals Dundee Utd. Aberdeen will be smarting from their dismal showing at Tannadice but they have the ideal opportunity to set the record straight. Aberdeen have not been to a major final since 2000 and that represents the clubs longest spell without reaching a final since 1967. Unless Aberdeen reach a final this season it will become an unwanted post war record of not reaching a major final that would then stretch to nine years. The longest post war droughts are 1947-1953 (6 years), 1959-1967 (8 years), 1970-1976 (6 years), 1995-2000 (5 years), 2000-2008 (8 years).

 

Aberdeen have came up against Dundee Utd at the semi final stage on five occasions with Aberdeen holding the edge. The Dons successes came in 1985, 1988 and again in 2000.

 

              Aberdeen wins   draws   Dundee United wins

GS, take heed of this well-known phrase:

 

Statistics are like cans of lager - you can chuck 'em about as much as you like, but overdo it and you just know sooner or later they're gonna blow up in yer face!  :wave:

We hold the edge in the Semi Final meetings, not overall.

The latter stats are for all league cup games, not just semifinals.

Aberdeen have won through in 3 of the 5 semifinals:
