Rangers just march on and after the rare absence of a clean sheet against Benfica, they enjoyed a comfortable time away at lower division Falkirk in domestic cup action. The 4-0 win follows on from 8-0 and 4-0 hidings dished out to Hamilton and Aberdeen respectively, as they appear to be in great shape all over the pitch.
Excluding a delayed second leg of the 2019-20 Europa League against Bayer Leverkusen, as well as the other best side they’ve faced in Benfica, Rangers’ record is quite remarkable over the current campaign.
They’ve won 19 of 21 unbeaten matches and registered 18 clean sheets, with the win to nil landing on 17 occasions, while they’ve scored at least twice in 18 of them as well.
The three goals Rangers landed away in Portugal earlier in November means they hold the reins in Group D. Victories in their last two games will secure first place and so we can expect a strong team from Steven Gerrard, and in Europe alone the Gers have flourished under current management.
Rangers To Win To Nil
They showed some mettle in Gerrard’s first season, taking a pair of stalemates in the group stages against Villarreal, while last term they did even better.
Four points were garnered from both Feyenoord and Porto, while they delivered wins in first and second legs over Sporting Braga during the knockouts.
They’ve lost just two of their past 12 outings in the Europa League from the group stages onwards, as both were inflicted by Leverkusen, while five of their six victories since the start of last season have come by 1-0 or 2-0 scorelines.
The 2-0 defeat in the reverse fixture sparked a bad run of form for the Standard Liege as they lost five of six games, but they’ve since steadied the ship a little.
They’re unbeaten in four now, but they’ve hardly been excellent as they drew three of them domestically and snatched a last gasp winner hosting Lech Poznan in this tournament.
Rangers To Win 2-0
A lack of clean sheets has been the Belgian outfit’s main undoing. A goalless stalemate at Anderlecht last time out was just their first clean sheet in five and second in 15 appearances, as they’ve conceded at least twice in five of the last nine.
In Europe alone, they’ve suffered defeat in six of eight winless away matches from the group stages onwards by a combined 20-5 scoreline, while trailing at the break in all but one of those defeats.
