Rangers had a tough re-introduction to life in the UEFA Champions League as they were hammered by Ajax on Match Day One.

Will they find any cheer back at Ibrox in midweek when they play host to Napoli?

That could be very tough if the Italians turn up in the same kind of mood they were for their big victory over Liverpool.

Rangers Preview – Gers Face Another Tough Night

Rangers will meet Napoli for the first time ever on Wednesday night in this Match Day 2 fixture.

It’s a big one for the qualification hopes of Rangers as well.

The Gers were blown away by a slick Ajax side in their opener, losing 4-0 against the Dutch club.

That immediately makes this tough group (which also contains Liverpool) much tougher for the Scottish side.

Can they come up with a perfect response by beating Napoli?

The home win in Rangers vs Napoli betting odds is at 3/1 with bet365*

So the bookmaker has the Glasgow side pegged as heavy underdogs for the midweek action.

Only once before from their previous 10 participations in the group stage, have Rangers lost their first two matches of a campaign.

That was in 1996-97. Rangers have only made it to the knockout stage once from their previous 10 appearances in the Champions League.

Our betting prediction:
Napoli To Win To Nil

It was only four shots in total that Rangers produced in their loss against Ajax.

That was the lowest of all teams on Match Day One and this match is no easier-looking.

Right before that defeat against Ajax, Rangers had been beaten 4-0 by Celtic in league action.

So their defence has been having a rough time of things as of late.

Rangers last faced an Italian since in the UEFA Cup Semi-Final in 2008, a time they won on a penalty shootout.


Napoli Preview – Serie A Side Strong

Napoli have looked very good this season and the Serie A side look clear favourites here.

Not only have they remained unbeaten on the domestic front, their Match Day One introduction in the Champions League was brilliant.

They were rampant at home against Liverpool, beating the Reds 4-1.

It was a dominant show of creative attacking football that Liverpool couldn’t handle.

Napoli are the 5/6 favourites to bank the win at Ibrox on Wednesday night*

This is the Italian club’s second meeting with a Scottish team in European competition.

Their previous one was against Hibs in 1967 in the Fairs Cup.

After their big Match Day One success against Liverpool, Napoli will strive to do something they haven’t done since 2016.

That’s to win back-to-back games in the competition.

Piotr Zielinski was one of their star performers on Match Day One, netting a brace.

He is a 4/1 quote to find the back of the net again in the Anytime Goalscorer market*

Napoli have scored at least four goals in three of their seven matches in all competition this season.

They have only banked one clean sheet in their last four, however.

But if the Italians are anywhere near the kind of levels that were at home against Liverpool, they may have a fair chance at one.


Rangers vs Napoli Betting Tips

Something to note for Rangers vs Napoli betting tips is that the Italians may be looking ahead to the weekend.

They face a trip to reigning Champions AC Milan in a huge Serie A clash at the top of the table.

So that could rein them in a little bit. Still, the first pick is Napoli to win to nil at 13/5*


Key Facts – Rangers vs Napoli Selected Stats

  • Rangers have lost their last two matches by a 4-0 scoreline
  • Rangers meet Napoli for the first time
  • Napoli beat Liverpool 4-1 on Match Day One


The Italians have looked very good this season so far and will likely just want to get the job done without too much fuss in Glasgow.

Rangers made very little impression against Ajax on a disappointing night, and have suffered back-to-back 4-0 losses.

This is not easier for them and on a muted night, Under 2.5 Goals is the pick at 13/10*
