Young Boys will win

Young Boys – Rangers Match Prediction | 04-10-2019 12:55

Including the group stage opener 1-0 victory over Feyenoord, it's been five straight victories since that Ibrox defeat, four consecutive clean sheets, and an aggregate scoreline of 13-1 over that period since the international break. They're otherwise unbeaten in 18 competitive games this season, getting through qualifying unscathed and winning six of seven in the league. They're only one point behind Celtic after the weekend's 5-0 victory over Aberdeen, and the difference between them is ultimately their disappointingly limp 2-0 victory in the Old Firm derby, a performance at odds with their otherwise resplendent form this season.

Steven Gerrard's men won their opening group stage fixture with a 1-0 victory over Dutch giants Feyenoord and they could move six points ahead of Young Boys, who lost 2-1 to Porto in their opener. Rangers have an opportunity to make a giant leap towards the Europa League knockout stages in this early evening kick-off, but they face a tricky test against Swiss champions Young Boys.

The man to watch in the visiting team will definitely be their fantastic striker Jermain Defoe who scored 6 goals in 3 matches in their domestic league. The visiting team will have to deal with a couple of unavailable players, as Jon Flanagan and Ryan Kent are still recovering from their injuries. However, manager Steven Gerrard shouldnt have a hard time because he has many other players at his disposal.

The likes of Paul Gascoigne, David Weir, Stefan Klos, Chris Boyd, Ian Durrant and Kenny Miller are some of Rangers former notable players. Glasgow Rangers defeated Dynamo Moscow in the final of the competition, with the likes of Stein and Johnston (two goals) scoring for the Scottish side. Celtic are considered the clubs biggest rivals and there have always been fireworks when the two teams meet in the Old Firm derby.

A man to watch in the home team will be Cameroon attacker Jean Pierre Nsame, who has netted 8 goals in the Swiss top flight so far this season. Young Boys play host to Rangers at their Stade de Suisse in their second group game in the 2019/2020 Europa League season. The Swiss outfit produce much better performances on home, artificial soil, than on the travels and we are positive that they are going to grab something from Thursdays football match.

Young Boys home record makes them the bookies favourites for this tie, but we think it will be a tight clash. In fact, 2 of their Europa League qualifiers this season have ended goalless, so going for a 0-0 draw looks the best option for the correct score markets. Rangers havent won any of their last 12 Europa League away games in the group stages and beyond, but a massive 8 of these games have ended all square.

Johnstone (0-4), Aberdeen (5-0), as well as a League Cup win at Livingston (0-1). Gers beat Feyenoord (1-0) with a single goal from Sheyi Ojo and weve seen them build on the success with very convincing league wins over St. Steven Gerrards men kept clean sheets in all of the last four outings and they surely have a lot to build on here.

Glasgow Rangers were founded back in 1872 and they have been playing an important role in the Scottish top flight ever since. The Gers won their 54th Scottish Premier League title in the 2010/2011 season, but winning of European Cup Winners Cup trophy in 1972 is considered the clubs biggest success. Glasgow Rangers are one of the two synonyms for Scottish Football.

The host is yet to find a win in the Group G of the Europa league table. Young Boys lost the opening match in the Europa League with FC Porto in a 2-1 score on the road. They will be hosting Rangers in their first home tie in the league. Rangers had won their opening home tie with Feyenoord with a clean sheet from it.

Also, Rangers travel here after failing to win away in last seasons EL group stage. Alongside that, the visitors are unbeaten this season away from home with those two exceptions being two EL goalless draws. As such, we can expect the match to probably turn in favor of the host with goals slotted in at both ends of the field.

Alfredo Morelos has 13 goals in all competitions so far this season, six in his last ten, and looks to have improved in terms of his disciplinary record, yet to be sent off after the many red cards that blemished his last season. Expect Gerrard to name Morelos in a strong team that also features James Tavernier, Sheyi Ojo and Ryan Jack.

But they're not unbeaten in all competitions, having lost 2-1 to Porto in the group stage opener a fortnight ago; that puts the onus on a good performance and a good result against Rangers, the visitors here likely to directly challenge them for a place through alongside the Portuguese giants. They remain unbeaten in the league, and only failed to qualify for the Champions League by virtue of goal difference, following a pair of score draws with Crvena Zvezda in the qualifying round. It's unlikely to be quite as easy for them this season, as they currently sit second in the table, having drawn three of their last four games - they've dropped points in four games so far, which is only three fewer than the entirety of last season.
