As the current season of the Europa League enters its final stages, Leipzig will be hosting the Glasgow Rangers this week, in what will be the first of the two legs in the semifinals.
Leipzig has played exceedingly well ever since Domenico Tedesco took over the reins of the team in December last year. In the 24 games that Leipzig has played under him so far, it has been defeated just thrice and won on 16 occasions. In fact, Leipzig was on a lossless streak for 15 games across competitions, but it was eventually broken by Union Berlin in its most recent game in the top flight.
In the Bundesliga, Leipzig is 4th on the points table, and has a realistic chance of making it to the Champions League next year, provided it can maintain the 2-point lead over Freiburg. Leipzig qualified to the semis after defeating Atalanta with an aggregate of 3-1 in the quarterfinals and will be facing either West Ham or Eintracht Frankfurt in case it advances to the finals.
Despite conceding the top spot in the Scottish Premier League to Celtic recently, Rangers fans will be pretty happy with the team’s performance under the new coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst, who replaced Steven Gerrard in November. Rangers has two shots at silverware for this season, with the Europa League, as well as the Scottish Cup finals against Hearts next month.
Rangers faced Braga in the quarterfinals, and after going 1-0 in the first leg, made a stunning comeback during the second leg, to advance with an aggregate of 3-2. However, most football betting sites are predicting a much more difficult task ahead for the Rangers players.
Match prediction and football betting tips for RB Leipzig vs Glasgow Rangers Europa League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Red Bull Arena, Leipzig, on 28th April 2022.
Despite Leipzig starting as firm favorites, Rangers do have the capability to cause an upset, as it did with Borussia Dortmund in the knockout stages. Joe Aribo, John Lundstram, and Ryan Kent have been rested over the weekend in the tie against Motherwell and will be fresh for this crucial game. Scott Wright is expected to start the game from the bench, while Alfredo Morelos, Roofe, and Ramsey are expected to be unavailable due to injuries.
For the hosts, Andre Silva is expected to help Nkunku in the front as Yusuf Poulson is likely to be missing, while Mohamed Simakan, Willi Orban, and Kevin Kampl are suspended for this game. Lukas Klostermann, Nordi Mukiele, and Dani Olmo are expected to make a comeback.
The hosts will have no problems winnings this one, and the visitors will only be hoping for a turnaround in the second leg.
Bet on RB Leipzig to win.
