What Trueform says for Spartak Moscow vs Rangers
Rangers will have been frustrated to only draw with Spartak Moscow at home in the Europa League but a repeat of that result in Russia would be better received.
Steven Gerrard’s side looked much the better team at Ibrox, are joint top of Group G alongside Villarreal and remain unbeaten in 11 games in this competition, including qualifying rounds.
Picking up a point would enhance their hopes of progressing further and 23/10 for the scores to finish level again is our initial Spartak Moscow vs Rangers prediction.
A Look At Spartak Moscow’s Betting Odds
Spartak were on the back foot from the outset in Glasgow and had to wait until the 70th minute for their first, and only, shot on target.
They had previously lost away to Rapid Vienna and shared the spoils with Villarreal at this venue, where PAOK Salonika also ground out a stalemate in a Champions League qualifier back in August.
The hosts axed Italian boss Massimo Carrera just before they travelled to Ibrox and caretaker boss Raul Riancho may be on borrowed time.
Sunday’s 2-1 loss to Ural Sver Oblast at Otkritie Arena left Spartak down in seventh place in Russia’s top flight, 12 points adrift of Zenit.
A Look At Rangers’ Betting Odds
Rangers couldn’t capitalise on their dominance in Glasgow, with Alfredo Morelos, Daniel Candeias and Eros Grezda all missing chances to clinch victory.
Six clean sheets in 11 Europa League matches is still a tribute to how well organised Gerrard has got this team, though, and they travel to Russia on the back of a 2-0 SPL win at St Mirren.
The Gers were hampered by tough weather conditions at Paisley Stadium but late goals from Candeias and Morelos eventually pushed them up to third.
“The pleasing thing for me is we didn’t get frustrated,” said Gerrard. “The lads kept plugging away and creating chances.”
This is a much more solid outfit than the one which was humbled by Progres Niederkorn last season and a seventh draw in Europe this term is well within their compass.
Let’s add 4/1 for the scores to be level at half-time and full-time to our Spartak Moscow vs Rangers betting tips.
St Mirren 0-2 RANGERS – Daniel Candeias, Alfredo Morelos
SPARTAK MOSCOW 1-2 Ural Sver Oblast – Luiz Adriano
Head-to-head: Rangers 0-0 Spartak Moscow
