Hamilton Academical vs Rangers Prediction & Match Preview

Hamilton Academical vs Rangers
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 29 August 2020
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Hope CBD Stadium.

The Teddy Bears are hell-bent on securing the title this season, and have raced to the top of the table already with a 100% unbeaten record. In fact, if not for their draw against Livingston, they would have had a perfect winning record this campaign.

They have also been the best team in Scotland along with Celtic for the past several years. On the other hand, the Accies were one of the worst teams in the league the last season, and were lucky enough to barely escape relegation.

Things have not changed much for the team this time around as well. They have lost all of their match-ups except for one, and have scored the fewest number of goals so far.

On top of all that, Steven Gerrard’s men have a phenomenal h2h record against this opponent over the years too.

Likely, expect Rangers to easily record a win this weekend.

Hamilton Academical vs Rangers: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The Teddy Bears had recorded wins in seven of the previous eight overall fixtures.
  • They had also won 23 of the previous 28 overall encounters between the two.
  • In fact, since 1999, only twice have they lost against this rival.
  • At this stadium, the guests are on a ten-match winning run.

Hamilton Academical vs Rangers: Prediction

Gerrard’s men are the best team in the country at present, and they are at the top of the table with a 100% unbeaten record. Disregarding a single draw against Livingston, they would have had a perfect winning record this campaign.

In the race to the top, they have scored the most number of goals, and impressively have not conceded a single goal so far.

On the other hand we have the Accies, who were incredibly fortunate to avoid getting the boot the last season. Still, they are one of the worst in the Premiership, and expectedly they have suffered plenty in h2h fixtures over the years.

In fact, they are on a ten-game losing streak at home in such games at home, and have conceded a total of 25 goals from the last six face-to-face meetings at this stadium.

Taking into account these observations, expect a stylish win from Rangers this weekend.
