Rangers have now won six of seven unbeaten games under Giovanni van Bronckhorst, as only a trip to Lyon failed to yield maximum points, with the team getting back to keeping clean sheets left, right and centre as they did in their impressive campaign last term.
They’ve shipped just two goals across these matches, with Lyon’s equalizer the only one they’ve conceded in the past five appearances, so they’ll be full on confidence ahead of hosting a struggling Dundee Utd.
Thomas Court’s side are enjoying a good season overall and remain up in fourth place in the table, but they have seen an alarming dip in form over recent weeks as the teams below them have been closing the gap.
They’re just W1-D2-L5 since late October and they enter this fixture having lost the last three on the trot against Motherwell, Celtic and Livingston, as they failed to score in each of these games.
The visitors haven’t enjoyed ideal preparations for this fixture either, having to shut down their training base following a covid outbreak with two players testing positive. It remains to be seen which players they’ll be without here, though they are fully expected to have the required 13 fit players for the game to go ahead.
Rangers To Win To Nil
Dundee Utd did record a surprise 1-0 victory over the Gers back in early August, but given the respective form of the two teams heading into this encounter, it would be a real shock if they could spring another result here.
They lost all three clashes with Rangers last term, going down 4-0 and 4-1 in their meetings at Ibrox, and their recent 4-0 defeat hosting Celtic would suggest they’ll struggle to get onto the scoreboard here.
Joe Aribo To Score Anytime
Joe Aribo was hardly doing badly under the tutelage of Steven Gerrard, but he appears to be one of the biggest winners of the switch in the dugout and has seen his goal tally swell over recent weeks.
The Nigerian has found himself in central attacking positions more often, drifting into space around the edge of the box, and has now scored four times in six league outings, as well as chipping in with a couple of assists.
