Rangers will host Lyon in the opening match of the Europa League as both teams look to make an immediate impact. This is a tough test for Glasgow. It had a poor start to its domestic season and although it has recovered since then, Glasgow is going to be without Goldsen and Helander for this match. This means that two of its key players from the defense are going to be missing.
Lyon also started a bit slow this season and did not register a win in its first three matches of the season but it has won its most recent previous two matches. There are some clear weaknesses in both teams and that is why the bookmakers are currently unable to separate them in this contest.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Rangers vs Lyon, Europa League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at Ibrox Stadium, Glasgow on the 16th of September 2021.
The Rangers are a tough team to beat at home but we think Lyon has a great chance of getting the full points in this contest. Rangers have conceded four goals in the previous three matches in the Scottish Premiership and are going to be without two of its key defenders for its match. This opens up a real opportunity for Lyon to take advantage and get the maximum possible points. With seven goals in its previous three matches, Lyon is in prime attacking form coming into this match.
Bet on Lyon to win.
Neither Rangers nor Lyon has a particularly sound defense and both have been guilty of giving up goals very frequently this season. We think we could easily see more than 2.5 goals being scored in this match that is going to be played at a high tempo.
We are going to back both teams to get on the board in this match. The Rangers defense is missing key members and Lyon has been quite poor at keeping clean sheets as well. The strategy for both teams may be to try and attack throughout because they are likely to let in a few goals each. This is our favorite bet for this match and one where you can go a bit big.
