The 2nd legs of the 2nd qualifying round of the Europa League continue on Thursday night with Luxembourg side, Progres Niedercorn, taking on Scottish outfit, Rangers, as the betting tips continue at the Stade Josy Barthel.

Niedercorn Prediction – Can Niedercorn put up resistance?

A 2-0 defeat away at Ibrox against Rangers in last week’s 1st leg of this 2nd qualifying round tie in the Europa League mean Niedercorn need to turn things around here.

This is the second time that these two teams have met each other in the Europa League though, and Niedercorn registered a 2-0 win in the home leg in 2017.

Rangers are a different outfit now under manager Steven Gerrard, but it’s unlikely that The ‘Gers will take unnecessary risks in this 2nd leg.

Thursday night’s hosts squeezed past Irish side, Cork City, in the previous round as they sneaked a 3-2 win on aggregate.

They won the away leg 2-0 but lost at home 2-1, but it was enough to see them through to this 2nd qualifying round.

In the 1st qualifying round they saw off Welsh club, Cardiff MU 1-0 in their home leg, and they haven’t lost by 3 goals or more in their last 51 matches on home turf.

Although they may end up on the losing side, Niedercorn have enough about them to avoid a heavy defeat at their Stade Josy Barthel here in this return leg.

Rangers Prediction – Can Rangers avoid banana-skin?

It’s still pre-season for Scottish outfit, Rangers, but they’ve already played 7 matches so far in this new season, and still remain unbeaten.

Friendlies against Oxford United (5-0), Marseille (4-0), Blackburn Rovers (1-1) and Derby County (1-0) have been successful outings for Gerrard’s side.

In addition, the visitors trounced Gibraltar side, St Joseph’s 10-0 on aggregate in the previous round of the Europa League.

Throw in last week’s 2-0 win away at tonight’s opponents, Progres Niedercorn, and you’ll see that they’ll be super confident of progressing here.

A final day of last season 2-1 loss away at Kilmarnock spoiled Rangers’s final day in the Scottish Premiership, but overall, Gerrard and Rangers are making progress.

There’s still work to be done though away from home in the Europa League as Rangers have collected just 2 wins out of their last 13 away ties.

These were registered at Osijek and St Joseph’s respectively, and as they lost 2-0 last time out at Progres Niedercorn, they still need to put in a shift tonight.

The visitors have also failed to score in 6 of these last 13 away ties so the job certainly hasn’t been done and dusted just yet.


Key-Facts – Niedercorn v Rangers

  • Niedercorn haven’t been beaten by 3 goals or more in their last 51 home matches
  • Niedercorn registered a 2-0 win over Rangers in their last meeting on home turf
  • Rangers have won just 2 of their last 13 away ties in the Europa League


Betting Tips Verdict

Progres Niedercorn know they’re capable of beating Rangers, but even if they don’t, they should at least avoid a heavy defeat here.
