It’s one of the biggest rivalry games in Scottish football as Rangers host Aberdeen. There’s little love lost between the teams and sets of supporters but the Ibrox club will be expecting to prevail at home.

Rangers Preview – Will Rangers avoid slip-ups like last season and see of Aberdeen to keep the pressure on Celtic?

Steven Gerrard’s men made it into the semi-final of the League Cup in the midweek courtesy of a 1-0 win away to Livingston. Their opponents at Hampden will be Hearts at the beginning of November as the manager looks to reach his first final in charge of the club. It’s back to league business for Rangers now, however, as they look to keep the pressure on leaders Celtic. Gerrard will be pleased with how his team have responded since losing to their rivals at the beginning of the month. It’s not always been the prettiest of performances but they have been able to grind out results which is not something they always managed last season.

Other than the defeat to Celtic in the derby, Rangers’ home form has been very strong in the early part of the season. They have won all seven of their other games at Ibrox including last week’s 1-0 win over Feyenoord in the Europa League. Gerrard will be demanding his players continue that run so they don’t fall any further behind the champions in this season’s title race. He will point to last season’s two (one in the league and one in the Scottish Cup) defeats at home to Aberdeen as examples of where his team let their performance level slip.

Aberdeen Preview – Can Dons bounce back from League Cup exit in midweek and get a result at Ibrox?

Unlike their opponents tomorrow it was cup disappointment for Aberdeen in midweek. Despite taking the lead twice against Hearts, Derek McInnes’ men ended up being knockout out on penalties after missing all three of the attempts they took. For a team who put so much effort into reaching cup finals it will be a frustrating time for Aberdeen. That’s not been helped by what seems a never ending injury crisis and they remain without a host of players for their trip to Glasgow this weekend. Forward James Wilson is the latest player to be added to that injury list and he will miss this game.

Last weekend’s win over Livingston in the league may not have been as a result of an overly convincing performance but it was an important victory. It keeps Aberdeen in fourth spot and four points behind Rangers. All three points would be such a boost to what has been a stop start season for the Pittodrie club so far. It’s been a mixed bag of results on their travels so far, however. Before that first away win last weekend, Aberdeen had lost at St Mirren and drawn with Kilmarnock in l0w-scoring games.

Key-Facts – Rangers v Aberdeen

  • Rangers have responded well since losing to Celtic and have won all seven of their other games at Ibrox this season
  • It was penalty heartache for Aberdeen in midweek as they exited the cup to Hearts – they’ll be looking for better in this one
  • Aberdeen are well drilled defensively with four of their five league games going under 2.5 goals

Rangers v Aberdeen Betting Advice

These teams are no strangers to each other having met seven times last season. It was Aberdeen who held the edge in terms of wins with three victories to Rangers’ two – two of the Dons’ wins came at Ibrox and Rangers failed to score in both of those games. Gerrard’s men are coming into this match in more consistent form, in terms of results at least, whilst their opponents have struggled to reach the level of form that they will feel they need to take anything from this match.
Aberdeen were a big reason why Rangers never really threatened to win a trophy in Gerrard’s first season in charge. There was plenty of tension in the games between the clubs with six red cards in the four league games alone. The hosts will be hoping they can avoid any slip-ups this time around and they should get the job done. Aberdeen don’t concede many goals and four of their five games this season have went under 2.5 goals. A home win in a low-scoring match appears to be the best bet.
