Rangers will be on a real high after a mammoth 2-0 win over Old Firm rivals Celtic at the weekend, continuing their excellent start to the season. Indeed, a narrow 1-0 defeat to a strong Leverkusen outfit in the delayed Europa League matches in August remains their sole loss since the restart.
Aside from that result they’ve won 12 of 14 unbeaten games and registered 11 clean sheets, winning to nil in 10 of them, while Hibernian are the only side to put more than a single strike past them.
Rangers +0 Asian Handicap
That impregnable defence leaves them with an excellent chance at getting something from this clash and their performances on the continent under Steven Gerrard have been consistently good.
They’re W18-D12-L5 in Europe over the past two campaigns as they’ve been tough to overcome, though it should be noted that all but one of those defeats came away from Ibrox where they went a more modest W6-D8-L4.
Each of those defeats on the road came by single-goal margins however, so the visitors appear worth siding with on the Asian handicap to at least pick up a useful point.
Although Liege have been scoring goals, the standard of opposition has largely been weak. They haven’t been so great at the back however and both teams have now scored in each of their last six outings.
If the likes of Kortrijk, Vojvodina, Zulte-Waregem, Fehervar, Sporting Charleroi and Club Brugge can all find the net against them, then Rangers will certainly fancy their prospects.
Half With Most Goals (2nd half)
Noticeably, Standard Liege have seen a lot more goals in the second halves of matches. This season, 13 of their own 19 strikes over 90 minutes have come after the break, including all 10 from their last five matches, while just over half of their opponent’s goals across this entire period did the same.
Meanwhile, the second half has been higher scoring in eight of Rangers’ last 10 European matches, while away from home 22 of 31 goals from their last 12 appearances have come after the opening 45.
James Tavernier To Score Anytime
In the goalscorer department one player stands out at the prices, with a number of players ahead of him in the market.
Right back James Tavernier has not only contributed five assists this season, but has been enjoying a highly fruitful campaign with eight goals in his past nine appearances now.
He only failed to score in two of these games, while he’s done so in each of the Gers’ three Europa League games this term so far.
