The Rangers will host Leipzig for a mid-week clash, as it looks to overturn a 1 goal deficit from the first leg in the Europa League semifinals.
After conceding the top spot in the Scottish Premiership to Celtic, the Rangers have little hope of catching up with them, with just 3 matches to go in the season. This leaves the Europa League as the only competition where they can realistically hope to win some silverware. Faced with the dilemma of facing two top teams, Celtic and Leipzig within a span of just 3 days, coach Giovanni Van Bronckhorst had to tread a thin line when it came to balancing his key players’ load.
The coach will be pretty happy with the 1-1 draw against Celtic in the club’s latest outing and will be fancying his chances of facing either Frankfurt or West Ham after a couple of weeks. However, a 1 goal deficit means that the home team will start as the underdogs on most football betting sites.
Leipzig was frustrated by the Rangers’ defensive lineup for the most part in the first leg. Despite holding possession for more than 70% of the time, the home team could manage just 4 shots on target. It was Angelino who managed to score after a corner wasn’t cleared far enough, and have Leipzig an advantage going into the second leg.
Nevertheless, the visitors will be pretty disappointed with their latest outing, an away game against Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga, where they faced a humiliating 3-1 loss, and dropped out of the top 4. However, with the second leg of the semifinals, two more league games, and DFB Pokal finals still to be played this month, coach Tedesco knows that the team cannot afford to be complacent, and needs to bounce back as soon as possible.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Glasgow Rangers vs RB Leipzig, Europa League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Ibrox Stadium, Glasgow, on 5th May 2022.
Rangers beat Dortmund, a much stronger team on paper, in the knockout round during the playoffs, and will be willing to put up a repeat performance in the semifinals too. However, the 1 goal deficit could be the thorn in the home team’s journey.
Kemar Roofe, who has been missing for the last couple of weeks, could make a comeback this Thursday, along with Glen Kamara, Aaron Ramsey, and Ryan Jack, all of whom missed the game against Celtic. As for the visitors, Josko Gvardiol could miss out on this game after injuring himself against Monchengladbach, while Lukas Klostermann and Marcel Halstenberg are likely to make a comeback.
Despite playing at home, we find it unlikely that the Rangers could get the better of the visitors.
Bet on RB Leipzig to win.
3 out of the last 4 games for both, the Rangers as well as RB Leipzig, played across competitions have seen the ball netted on both the sides of the field, and we expect more of the same in this match too. Pressed with no option but to attack, mistakes, as well as a lot of chances, are often created. This usually allows both teams to get on the board.
3 of the last 4 matches for Leipzig and 3 of the last 5 games for the Rangers have seen more than 2.5 goals scored during the 90 minutes. With both the teams having a good striking average, it is likely a high-scoring match will be played this week.
