Rangers versus Feyenoord promises to be a feisty affair, with former playing rivals Steven Gerrard and Jaap Stam squaring off again in the Europa League.
That pair had some fierce battles when representing Liverpool and Manchester United respectively and that combative spirit is reflected in their current teams.
A tight tussle is on the cards at Ibrox and 3/4 for under 2.5 goals in the game is our initial Rangers vs Feyenoord prediction.
A Look At Rangers’ Betting Odds
With Porto and Young Boys also featuring in a solid Group G, doing the business on home turf could prove essential and Rangers must learn from last season’s failings.
Gerrard’s side finished third behind Villarreal and Rapid Vienna after picking up only one point on the road.
At Ibrox, they beat Rapid 3-1 but were held to goalless draws by Valencia and Spartak Moscow, so being more clinical in Glasgow is required.
The good news is that Rangers have won all four games at this venue in qualifying for this stage, scoring 12 goals and conceding only one.
A last-gasp Alfredo Morelos strike helped them to edge out Legia Warsaw 1-0 on aggregate after a 0-0 stalemate in Poland and that forward netted eight times in those early rounds.
The hosts’ 13-match unbeaten run at Ibrox in European games is hard to argue with and 27/20 for them to oblige here gets the nod from the Rangers vs Feyenoord odds.
A Look At Feyenoord’s Betting Odds
Feyenoord have not had much luck in Europe of late, finishing bottom of a Champions League pool two years ago and suffering a surprise loss to Trencin in the qualifiers for this tournament last term.
They went on to finish a distant third behind Ajax and PSV in the Dutch Eredivisie, trailing those domestic rivals by 21 and 18 points respectively.
A closing run of six wins in seven matches did raise hopes of better times to come, though, and Stam’s arrival over the summer was seen as another boost.
Tempting experienced midfielder Leroy Fer back to Rotterdam was a transfer-window plus, while winger Steven Berghuis has been playing well enough this term to earn a recall to the Dutch national team.
However, a 3-0 triumph over Hapoel Beer Sheva in Israel in the play-offs was Feyenoord’s first win in 10 European away matches.
Let’s finish off our Rangers vs Feyenoord betting tips by going for a 1-0 home victory at 29/4.
RANGERS 3-1 Livingston – Tavernier, Morelos, Barker
FEYENOORD 3-2 Den Haag – Karsdorp (pen), Narsingh, Fer (pen)
Head-to-head: Feyenoord 3-2 Rangers, Rangers 1-1 Feyenoord
