Europa League at Marathonbet

The 2nd legs of the 1st round matches of the Europa League will be played on Thursday night and our next featured match sees another Scottish outfit, Rangers, taking on Gibraltar side, St Josephs, as the betting tips continue at Ibrox.

Rangers Prediction – Can Rangers record another easy win?

Rampant Rangers recorded another easy win to start their new season off in style as they romped to a 4-0 lead in this Europa League tie with St Josephs.

Following their disappointing end to last season’s Scottish Premiership season which saw them lose 2-1 at Kilmarnock, Steven Gerrard’s boys have since bounced back.

And they’ve done so in style – a friendly 5-0 win over Oxford United was followed with a 4-0 win in Gibraltar and a 4-0 thrashing of French Ligue 1 side, Marseille.

Confidence will therefore be high amongst the Rangers camp ahead of this 2nd leg at Ibrox against the Gibraltan minnows.

The manner in which the hosts have started this season will be extremely pleasing for manager, Steven Gerrard, who’ll be aiming for Rangers to make the group stage of the Europa League.

Results at home have been promising too as Rangers have won their last 6 matches on the trot on home turf in all competitions.

In addition, clean sheets in each of these last 6 matches at home can only further boost the host’s confidence here.

St Josephs Prediction – Can St Joseph’s salvage some pride?

After being handed a heavy 4-0 defeat on home turf at their Victoria Stadium in last week’s 1st leg, St Joseph’s are all but out of the Europa League.

Following the euphoria of making it through to the 1st qualifying round after beating Kosovo outfit, Prishtina, it looks like the visitors are bowing out.

St Joseph’s recorded a 3-1 aggregate win over Prishtina but now face an almost impossible task of beating a free-scoring Rangers outfit at Ibrox on Thursday night.

Last week’s heavy defeat ended an encouraging run of 6 matches without defeat in all competitions, but were brought crashing back down to earth.

Results away from home have been impressive for St Joseph’s as they’ve suffered just 2 defeats out of their last 21 matches on their travels.

However, the majority of these games have been on the domestic scene, and it’ll be a totally different story in Scotland I daresay.

The visitors possess a very limited pedigree at Europa League level and they’ve yet to win an away tie, losing 6-0 at AEL and drawing 1-1 at both B36 and Prishtina.


Key-Facts – Rangers v St Josephs

  • Rangers have won their last 6 matches on the trot on home turf
  • Rangers have also kept clean sheets in each of these 6 home matches too
  • St Joseph’s have gone 3 away ties without a win in the Europa League


Betting Tips Verdict

It’s expected to be a comfortable win at home for Rangers here who should also cover the asian handicap line.
