Rangers vs Leipzig Betting Tips
- Our Tip – Draw and BTTS @ 7/2 on BetStorm
Rangers will relish being back on home soil, and there are few atmospheres in world football that top Ibrox on a European night.
The Gers struggled to get into the game in the first leg, and Leipzig’s experience and quality showed as they ground out a narrow 1-0 victory. Nevertheless, it was a tight, tense affair and one in which Rangers will not dwell in given the slender nature of the aggregate lead.
We’re tipping a draw with both to score for the second leg, with Leipzig possessing enough quality in the attacking areas to make it through by a narrow margin.
Rangers vs Leipzig Predictions
- Our Prediction – 1-1 @ 28/5 on BetStorm
Our prediction for this one is a 1-1 draw.
We can see this be an agonising 2-1 aggregate loss for Rangers, in which their second leg performance should be drastically different to their first. The home crowd’s support can do special things on a European night, particularly in a fixture of this magnitude.
However, Leipzig are arguably the best team left in the competition and they will be eager not let their lead slip early on. The German outfit dominated the ball in the first leg and it should be a similar story in Glasgow on Thursday.
