Rangers vs Legia Warsaw: Ibrox will be jumping for second leg

Kick-off: 1945, 29/08/2019

Stadium: Ibrox

Rangers returned from Poland with a satisfactory goalless stalemate against Legia Warsaw and will be confident of reaching the Europa League group stage.

Steven Gerrard’s side have rattled off four straight home wins this season, with 17 goals scored and just two conceded, and are fancied to further extend that sequence.

It is 3/2 for the Glasgow giants to prevail by more than one clear goal again and that is our opening Rangers vs Legia Warsaw prediction.

A Look At Rangers’ Betting Odds

Rangers had chances to snatch an away win last week, with Alfredo Morelos firing straight at home keeper Radoslaw Majecki midway through the second period.

Nikola Katic also came close with a header as the Light Blues almost hushed the notoriously noisy Polish Army Stadium.

Gerrard told RangersTV: “There’s a lot of things about the game that we’re very pleased about. I thought we stuck together in a very hostile atmosphere.

“Legia are a good team and I thought they proved that, but certainly in the first half we were really, really good.

“I would have liked to see us create a bit more in the second half, but all in all we’ve come to a real tough place and kept a clean sheet.”

Another disciplined display is on the cards at Ibrox and 21/20 for a home win to nil stands out from the Rangers vs Legia Warsaw odds.

A Look At Legia Warsaw’s Betting Odds

Legia did not lack intent in the first leg and Allan McGregor was forced to make three decent saves.

However, they failed to score on the road at Europa and KPS Kuopio in previous rounds, before admittedly winning 2-0 at Atromitos earlier this month.

The big question is how they will react to playing at such an imposing venue when visiting Ibrox?

Gerrard commented: “The tie is in the balance but we’re going back to our place now, so the atmosphere completely changes full circle.

“The boys need the four sides of the ground to get the place jumping and rocking. Every challenge, every decision, the crowd have to be with us from start to finish.

“The majority of the time at Ibrox we do create chances. If we can take our chances, I expect us to score the goals that will take us through.

“But because we haven’t got the away goal, it’s important that we defend well too.”

We’re adding 21/4 for a 2-0 triumph to our Rangers vs Legia Warsaw betting tips.
