20:00, Sep 16 2021
Glasgow Rangers vs Olympique Lyonnais prediction for Thursday’s Europa League Group A matchup at Ibrox Stadium in Glasgow. Scottish champions Rangers will host Lyon who finished third in the Ligue 1 last season. You can read our preview free prediction and betting tips on this page.

Glasgow Rangers eager to kick off their UEL campaign with a positive result

Rangers failed to reach the Champions League group stage after losing to Malmo in the qualification round. As a result, the Scottish champions are now playing in the Europa League. Notably, this is the Gers third consecutive UEL group stage appearance. But manager Steven Gerard will look to advance past the last 16 after failing in the previous two seasons.

Just four defeats in their last 27 European home matches indicates Rangers can be tough to beat at Ibrox. Also in the Scottish League, the Blues won their last four games after a losing start in their opening match. Hence, all these factors must give Gerard and his team the confidence needed ahead of this crucial fixture.

Rangers Key Points

  • Rangers are undefeated in their last 11 home games
  • The Blues scored in all their last five home matches
  • 2.2 is the average number of goals scored by Rangers’ in the last five home games

Olympique Lyonnais looking for a successful UEL season

After a thrilling four-way French title race last season, Lyon are looking for silverware this season. With that in mind, Les Gones are in the UEL with the intention of going all the way.

Notably, they won more UEL matches (21) and scored more goals (70) than any other French club. Hence their ambition might fall in the right place.

In addition, coach Peter Bosz will be confident with his team’s recent away record in the UEL. In fact, Lyon lost just one of their last nine away games in the Europa League. Moreover, their last visit to Ibrox in the 2007/8 season saw Lyon leave with a convincing 3-0 victory. 

Lyon Key Points

  • Lyon scored in nine of their last ten matches
  • L’OL lost just one of their last 20 away games
  • Over 2.5 goals is the number of goals scored in four of Lyon’s last five away games
