Rangers vs Alashkert: Prediction and Betting Tips
Rangers close to a Europa League group stage finish
After winning the Scottish Premier League last season for the first time since 2011, Rangers had a bigger ambition. Hence, Steven Gerard’s team would have preferred to play in the Champions League. However, the Light Blues lost in the first round of the CL qualification to Malmo FF. Consequently, the Scottish champions have a chance to play in the Europa League group stage if they overcome Alashkert from Armenia.
It wasn’t the perfect start by Steven Gerard’s team to their new season. Indeed, Rangers lost three of their six competitive matches to start off. That resulted in elimination from the Champions League which is any club’s most desired competition to be in. Probably Gerard needs more experienced players at his disposal. Nonetheless, Rangers couldn’t capitalize on the many chances they had in the Malmo match which could have turned the result to their side.
Rangers Key Points
- Rangers scored in nine of their last ten matches
- Gerard’s team have four clean sheets in ten matches
- The Scottish champions scored 2.3 goals per game on average in the last ten matches
Alashkert needs a miracle performance for this tie
It will take a humungous effort and performance level on the part of Alashkert to cause a major upset here. That would be the first time ever that an Armenian team takes part in any European group stage competition. Like their opponents, Alashkert were also knocked out of the Champions League in the semi-final of the qualification round by Sheriff Tiraspol.
In any case, the Armenian champions did well against the strong Kairat Almaty side from Kazakhstan. After drawing 0-0 in the first leg in Almaty, it was more interesting in Yerevan. Both teams scored twice at the end of 90 minutes. Consequently, the match went to extra time. Kairat got their second player sent off which made it easier for Alashkert to score the winner.
Alashkert Key Points
- Alashkert won four of their last ten matches
- The Armenian champions scored in six of their last ten matches
- 0.9 is the average goals scored per game by Alashkert
Rangers vs Alashkert Prediction
Rangers will definitely not miss this opportunity to qualify for the Europa League group stage this season. Steven Gerard was a hungry player for trophies and success and he is the same in a coach’s role.
Moreover, Rangers have more experience in Europe throughout history and will be keen for the CL exit. Also, The Gers will be keen to make up for their early exit from the Champions League.
