Rangers Preview – Can the Gers take a lead to Portugal?

Rangers booked their place in the last 32 by finishing second in Group G. Portuguese outfit Porto won the group with ten points, with the Gers just a point adrift. The Scottish Premiership team beat Young Boys to the runners-up spot by a single point. Overall, Rangers won two, drew three and lost one.

Since the turn of the year, Steven Gerrard’s men have been in patchy form. Rivals Celtic have moved a staggering ten points clear at the top of the Premiership table, as the Teddy Bears have taken just 13 points from a possible 21. Meanwhile, the Hoops have taken maximum points since losing to Rangers at Celtic Park in late December.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1425 GMT, Wednesday 19 February)

Rangers will be hoping to go far in this season’s Europa League. However, Braga will be formidable opponents over the two legs. You can’t help but feel that Rangers need to take a lead to Portugal to stand any realistic chance of going through. Can the Scottish giants claim a crucial home victory on Thursday?

Braga Preview – Will the Portuguese outfit give Rangers problems at Ibrox?

Braga head to Scotland in superb form. The Archbishops, who currently sit pretty in third spot in the Portuguese Primeira Liga, have won eight and drawn one of nine in all competitions since losing to Pacos Ferreira in league action back on December 15th.

Minhotos beat Nuno Espirito Santo’s Wolverhampton Wanderers to top spot in Europa League Group K to seal their passage through to the Round of 32. Braga picked up an impressive 14 points, winning four and drawing two of six. When they visited Molineux back in September, Ricardo Horta was on the scoresheet in a 1-0 away win.
