Rangers v Sporting Braga Preview And Betting Tips – Europa League Round of 32, 1st Leg

With Rangers unlikely to catch rivals Celtic on the domestic front, Steven Gerrard have high expectations for his team to go deep into the Europa League draw beginning with their round of 32 first leg tie at Ibrox against Sporting Braga. Tipsters Form Labs guide you to where the value might lie for the game, while we have all the odds for the Europa League action available on our sportsbook.





Recent Form

Sporting Braga have been in flying form recently, winning nine of their last 10 unbeaten matches, including wins over Porto (twice), Sporting Lisbon (twice), a 7-1 thrashing of Belenenses and 1-0 victory away at Benfica at the weekend.

While the atmosphere will undoubtedly be electric at Ibrox come Thursday night, there will no doubt be an element of worry in the crowd having seen the form of their opponents.

However, at least Rangers can call on their exceptional home record to give them a boost in confidence.

Steven Gerrard’s men are now W21-D2-L1 at Ibrox going back to April, with the defeat coming against bitter local rivals Celtic, while they beat both Feyenoord and Porto to nil here in this competition.

In fact, they’ve only conceded three strikes here in their last 14 games on home soil, and no more than one in any of them.

That defensive record is something to marvel at, though against a team of Braga’s quality, we can’t see the Gers holding firm here.

The Portuguese outfit went unbeaten as they topped their group ahead of Wolves, Slovan Bratislava and Besiktas, while they’ve now won 12 of their last 15 away games.

Multibet Exact Score: 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1 Rangers Win

However, the visitors will be well aware of the resolve they will be coming up against, and will be prioritising bringing an away goal back to Portugal, so will be much more offensive than the usual domestic opposition the Gers have to face.

This could leave gaps for the hosts to exploit and with the dangerous Alfredo Morelos already having netted a whopping 14 goals in the Europa League this year (including qualifiers), we wouldn’t be surprised to see him find some space and grab a goal.

Steven Gerrard knows all about how to succeed in Europe, and the importance of going into an away second leg with a lead. His knowledge of the requirements here, coupled with the thumping atmosphere at Ibrox is enough to see us back the home win here.

However, neither side will be pushing for an incredibly open game, the low-scoring win for the Gers looks to be the way to go here, so the multibet option provides good value.

Multibet Exact Score: 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1 Rangers Win At 21/10
