Progres Niederkorn vs Rangers: Visitors to be clinical

Kick-off: 1830, 01/08/2019

Stadium: Stade Josy Barthel

Rangers will be fired up to exorcise the demons of their last trip to face Progres Niederkorn in a Europa League qualifier two years ago.

On that occasion, the Glasgow giants lost in Luxembourg to crash out, but this time they travel with a 2-0 advantage and much greater focus.

We think 4/5 for Steven Gerrard’s side to win to nil at Stade Josy Barthel is the way to go with our initial Progres Niederkorn vs Rangers prediction.

A Look At Progres Niederkorn’s Betting Odds

Progres had a great chance to grab a vital away goal at Ibrox when substitute Jack Mmaee broke clear late on, but Allan McGregor made sure Rangers stayed in control of the tie.

However, they were fortunate to still be in contention at that point, as Gerrard’s men had wasted numerous opportunities to extend their lead.

Niederkorn boss Ronald Vrabec confessed: “It was a lesson for us in terms of speed, passing and positional play.

“If you see the chances Rangers had, then you have to say we rode our luck. In football, anything is possible, but we know it’s going to be very difficult.”

Looking at the Progres Niederkorn vs Rangers odds, we think 5/1 for the Scottish outfit to oblige by the same scoreline is fair value.

A Look At Rangers’ Betting Odds

At Ibrox, Joe Aribo swept home a superb finish 20 minutes in and Sheyi Ojo sent a crisp strike into the far corner of the net early in the second half.

But James Tavernier smashed his spot-kick against the post, while Ojo and Ryan Jack had goals disallowed.

Gerrard said: “In big moments in the game, we haven’t been clinical enough, so there’s work to do.

“Obviously, the penalty springs to mind and we probably had six or seven decent chances on top of that to score more goals.”

However, he added: “I think you can see a gulf in both teams, so they need to do something drastically different from their game plan.

“I predict there will be openings for us to go and create more chances, but we do need to be more clinical in front of goal and try to kill this tie as early as we can.”

Let’s finish off our Progres Niederkorn vs Rangers betting tips by taking 9/2 for the visitors to be 2-0 ahead at half-time, before closing down the game after the break.
