Sparta Prague will use home advantage and go for all three points

With Lyon also in group A, this match has a big importance for Sparta Prague. Following their draw away to Brondby, it is crucial to get all three points at home. Especially, against a side that will challenge them for the second place. Considering their recent form, the Reds will look forward to repeating the triumph they had in the only previous meeting when they won 1-0.

Moreover, a win here against their opponent’s force rivals Celtic by 4-1 may also give coach Vrba’s players some confidence. Despite having the less share of ball possession against Brondby, Sparta were the more dangerous side. Markedly, the Czech side had 12 goal attempts of which four were on target without hitting the back of the net. 

Sparta Key Points

  • Sparta lost just three of their last 21 UEL group stage home games
  • The Reds scored in four of their last five home matches
  • Two is the average goals scored by Sparta in their last five home games

Rangers looking for points in Prague

It was another Prague team, Slavia, that knocked out Rangers in last year’s UEL round of 16. However, a 67% unbeaten rate in UEL group stage away games shows Steven Gerrard’s team can opt for a fine result. Furthermore, after losing their opening match at home to Lyon, three points is what Gerard will be looking for.

Nonetheless, the Gers don’t look to be at the same level as they were last season. In fact, they already lost a match this season in the Scottish Premier League. Also, their display against Lyon wasn’t convincing having conceded two goals from two shots on target by the French. As a result, a more balanced performance is required by Gerard’s team.

Rangers Key Points

  • Rangers had six clean sheets in ten games
  • The Light Blues lost two away games in 15 trips
  • Gerard’s side scored in three of their last five away matches

Sparta Prague vs Rangers Prediction

The interesting aspect about this game is that both teams are looking for a win. Consequently, the bookies have equal odds for Sparta and Rangers to a win, 2.70. 

To explain, both teams have the exact same record in their last five matches. Notably, Sparta have W3 D2 L1 at home and Rangers have the same record in their last five away games.

In other words, it is best to look at other markets despite the high value of a win here. Clearly, everything surrounding this game suggests a draw is a big possibility. Hence we will back a double a chance combined with total goals in the combos section at Vbet.
