Rangers v St Josephs Betting Tips – Europa League, 18th July 7.45pm

This tie looks to be just about in the bag then with Rangers holding a commanding 4-0 lead from the first leg. All of their four goals came in the second half of their contest out in Gibraltar. That should leave them with a comfortable return fixture at Ibrox and a chance perhaps for boss Steven Gerrard to look at a few different options. Read our predictions for Rangers v St Josephs.

So obviously that means that the tie should be in the bag for Rangers now. There’s still a long way to go to get to the group stage as they did last season. Steven Gerrard seems to be happy with his squad and the better depth that it has compared to the last term. The Gers are undefeated in their last nine European home games (W4 D5).

St Josephs News and Form

So St Joseph’s are not likely to be extending their stay in the Europa League this season. It’s over before they could really begin. They actually did credit to themselves in the first half of the first leg against Rangers, keeping the Gers at 0-0 after the first period. They just couldn’t keep up in the second half as Rangers stepped it up.

This is only St Joseph’s third attempt at the Europa League qualifiers, having failed to progress in each of their previous two. They earned a 3-1 aggregate win over Prishtina in the preliminary round to set up this tie with Rangers. Their overall record in Europe now stands at W7 D1 L3. The Gibraltar team have scored five and conceded seventeen in those games. They were on a four-match scoring streak in Europe before the first leg of this tie.

Rangers v St Josephs Predictions

Rangers to win: Another clean sheet victory looks to be on the cards for Rangers in this one. Remember this is so early in the summer still and first competition action. So the Gers are going to be a bit rusty. There’s no need to shoot for a cricket score here, but a comfortable win looks like.
