St Josephs v Rangers Betting Tips – Europa League, 9th July 4.55pm

This is the first qualifying round of the Europa League. Scottish giants Rangers will be making the trip to Gibraltar in the first leg of this tie. It’s super early in the pre-season still though, so it’s unlikely that Steven Gerrard’s men are going to go full force. Read our predictions for St Josephs v Rangers.

St Josephs News and Form

There was some confusion about when this first leg was actually going to be played. That was because there is only one ground in Gibraltar that is sanctioned by UEFA to host European games. That’s the Victoria Stadium where Gibraltar’s national team plays. Club side Europa are playing there on Thursday in the Europa League, so St Joseph’s game against Celtic was brought forward to Tuesday.

William Hill

St Josephs beat Prishtina (who was reduced to nine men in the second leg of their tie) to get through a preliminary qualifying round. Prior to this season, they have been in the Europa League 1st Qualifying Round once before. They lost 10-0 on aggregate against AEL Limassol in 2017. Their overall record in the Europa League (all qualifiers) is W1 D3 L2.

Rangers News and Form

Rangers had an early summer start last year beginning in the first qualifying round of the Europa League. They did get all the way through to the Europa League main draw where they crashed out. In the season before that, they had lost in the first qualifying round against Progres Niederkorn. But Steven Gerrard guided them well through their tricky summer trials in his first season in charge last term.

Because of pre-season rust and under-strength line ups, this isn’t likely to be a thriller. Rangers have been busy with pre-season friendly, beating Oxford 5-0 on Sunday. Their overall record in the UEFA Cup/Europa League is W39 D28 L28. A clean sheet for Rangers is at 3/10* (Betting Odds were taken from William Hill on July 7th, 2019 at 3:49 a.m.).
