Alashkert vs Rangers: Prediction and Betting Tips
Can Alashkert cause a huge upset
The Armenian side Alashkert will be very pleased with the first leg result. Still, they have a very tough challenge of beating the Scottish champion by a two-goal margin. Nonetheless, Alashkert played a great defensive game in the first. Not only that, but the Armenian champions shared the ball possession with their opponents. However, coach Grigoryan’s team had no shots at goal and just one off-target.
As a result, Alashkert need to come out of their bases and surprise Steven Gerard’s team with an early goal possibly. From then on, Grigoryan can adopt a similar defensive tactic as in Glasgow to take the match to penalties. At the same time, the Yellow Blacks have not scored in their last three games. And that should be a concern for Grigoryan as they need to score to stay in the tie.
Alashkert Key Points
- Alashkert won just one of their last five home games
- Grigoryan’s team scored just once in their last five home games
- The Yellows conceded 0.5 goals per game in their last ten matches
Rangers are favorites to go through
After winning the first Scottish title since 2011, Rangers failed to stay in the Champions League. The Gers were eliminated by Malmo and now have a chance to play in the Europa League group stage. That seems a big probability despite winning just 1-0 in the first leg. Indeed, Rangers are on a three match winning streak. But they have one away win in three travels this season.
Gerard’s team dominated the first leg in terms of goal chances. Despite being a man down following Lundstram’s red card in the 43rd minute, Rangers opened up the scoring in the 67th minute. Eventually, the visitors gained more possession of the ball but the light blues hung on their lead. In any case and unless a huge upset occurs, the Scottish champions look the better side in this tie.
Rangers Key Points
- Rangers scored in all of their last five away games
- Gerard’s team have two clean sheets in their last four away games
- The Gers scored seven times in the last four away games
Alashkert vs Rangers prediction
