Rangers Prediction – Can Rangers see out 2nd leg?

A 4-2 win away from home in Denmark in last week’s 1st leg at the MCH Arena in Herning against Thursday night’s opponents, Midtjylland, has placed Rangers in a strong position ahead of this return leg at Ibrox this evening.

Not only do Rangers hold a 2-goal advantage here, but they’ve scored 4 away goals also into the bargain which means that Midtjylland will have to pull off an extraordinary result in this return leg to make it through to the play-offs.

Instead, Rangers find themselves in the box-seat here, but Neil Lennon’s side will be keen to keep their winning momentum going in this tie. The hosts have won 9 of their last 11 matches in all competitions, including winning their last 3 matches on the trot with victories against Kilmarnock, Midtjylland and a 6-1 thumping of Hibernian in the Scottish Premiership on the weekend.

In addition, Rangers have collected 10 wins from their last 11 matches on home turf at Ibrox, as well as an 11-match run without defeat at home in the Europa League.

Forwards, Defoe (3 goals) and Moreno (2 goals) look the most likely for the hosts.

Midtjylland Prediction – Can Midtjylland cause problems?

The Danish visitors find themselves behind the proverbial 8-ball ahead of their trip to Glasgow as they look to overturn a 2-goal deficit at Ibrox against an in-form and confident Rangers side who’ll be desperate to progress to the play-offs of the Europa League.

Despite that setback last week, Midtjylland immediately bounced back with a 2-0 win away from home at Horsens in the Danish Superliga which they’ll be hoping can prove to be the catalyst behind a famous win at Ibrox this Thursday night.

With 5 wins out of their last 6 matches in all competitions, Midtjylland still pose a dangerous threat to Rangers on Thursday night and shouldn’t be taken lightly as the visitors are more than capable of scoring goals on their travels.

Indeed, Midtjylland have scored in 14 of their last 15 away matches in all competitions which shows they are very capable of causing further trouble at Ibrox in this return leg. On the flip side, they’re also prone to conceding goals on a regular basis on the road too.

10 of Midtjylland’s last 15 away matches have also seen both teams score, and as they have no choice but to attack from the off here, this trend could continue here.


Key-Facts – Rangers v Midtjylland

  • Rangers have won 10 of their last 11 matches overall at Ibrox
  • Rangers are unbeaten in their last 11 home ties in the Europa League
  • 10 of Midtjylland’s last 15 away matches have seen both teams score


Betting Tips Verdict

Rangers can’t afford to sit back here and will look to pick off Midtjylland who have to press forward in this return leg.
