RB Leipzig vs Rangers Betting Tips
- RB Leipzig vs Rangers Betting Tips – Leipzig to Win and Over 3.5 Goals @ 219/100 on BetStorm
Bookmakers have Leipzig down as firm favourites for this one, and the German outfit look to be tournament favourites as we enter the penultimate stage.
Sitting fourth place in the Bundesliga, they have one of the best scoring records in the league as well as the second best defensive record behind leaders Bayern Munich. This makes them a formidable opponent, and despite losing to Union Berlin on the weekend, they had been on a 15 game unbeaten run prior.
They have a talented and youthful front line in Dani Olmo, Andre Silva and Christopher Nkunku, which will almost certainly cause Rangers problems who have conceded in their last three European matches.
While Giovanni Van Bronckhorst’s side have shown their worth in Germany already this season by defeating Borussia Dortmund, Leipzig are stronger defensively and we expect them to grab a first leg victory here.
RB Leipzig vs Rangers Predictions
- RB Leipzig vs Rangers Prediction: 3-1 Leipzig @ 10/1 on BetStorm
As mentioned, Leipzig have been in impeccable form recently and are proving a difficult outfit to beat.
They are unbeaten at the Red Bull Arena since mid December in all competitions, and we are expecting a victory for them here.
Rangers stil present enough of a threat to cause them problems however, and comfortable victories over Dortmund, Belgrade and Braga have proven their ability over two legs during this year’s campaign.
We do expect Rangers to get on the scoresheet at some point during the match, but Leipzig to net on three occasions in a 3-1 first leg victory.
