Rangers Prediction – Can Rangers get over the line at Ibrox?

Rangers will be desperate to pick themselves up for this Matchday 6 clash against Young Boys in Group G following their disappointing League Cup defeat to bitter rivals, Celtic, on Sunday, but at least they have home advantage in what is Steven Gerrard’s biggest match as Rangers manager so far.

Even a draw would suit Rangers here as they currently sit top of Group F but only hold a slender 1-point lead over chasing teams Porto and tonight’s opponents, Young Boys, but I daresay the Scottish outfit will want to register all three points here to make absolutely sure.

Rangers were handed a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys earlier in the campaign which has been their only loss so far in these group matches, while home wins over Feyenoord and Porto along with points picked up on the road at Porto and Feyenoord have helped keep Rangers top of the pile.

But it’s at Ibrox where Rangers have really shone as they’ve won their last 6 Europa League ties on the trot amidst an unbeaten run of 15 matches in this competition, while the even bigger picture shows that the ‘Gers have lost just 1 of their last 26 home ties at this level.

Young Boys Prediction – Can Young Boys do the ‘double’ over Rangers?

Having been the only team in these group matches to inflict defeat upon their Scottish hosts, Young Boys will head to Ibrox with a quietly confident manner that they can once again upset the apple-cart and perhaps snatch a famous victory which could send them into the knockout stage of the Europa League.

The visitors’ only other win though during this campaign was a 2-0 home win against Dutch side Feyenoord, and having recorded some mixed results throughout this group stage Young Boys are by no means guaranteed of walking away with anything from Glasgow on Thursday night.

Defeats to Porto home and away have prevented the Swiss club from stamping their authority on a top two finish, while overall results in the Europa League as a whole have been inconsistent as they’ve managed just 3 wins out of their last 11 ties, which were all achieved on home turf at their STADE DE SUISSE Wankdorf Bern.

The story worsens when looking at Young Boys’ results away from home; the visitors are without an away win from their last 10 matches on the road in the Europa League and this could be the key to the outcome of Thursday night’s clash in Glasgow.

 

Key-Facts – Rangers vs Young Boys

  • Rangers are unbeaten in their last 15 home ties in the Europa League
  • Young Boys are without a win from their last 10 away ties in the Europa League
  • Rangers have won their last 6 home ties on the trot in the Europa League

 

Betting Tips Verdict

Rangers look to have the edge here but use the handicap on the hosts as a draw also suits them.
