Hamilton Academical vs Rangers
Scottish Premiership – Season 2017/18
Date: Sunday, 18th February 2018
Kick-off at 14:15 UK/ 15:15 CET
Venue: New Douglas Park (Hamilton).
The home side has consecutively lost 3 of their previous Premiership league games. It does not sound good that they are yet in another hard matched against a better and stronger team. It is surprising to note that they have only scored only 1 goal this year in 4 matches. However, Hamilton had ended the year in style after thrashing Motherwell 3-1.
Afterwards, the team has lost all their matches including 2 previous home matches. This match is not expected to favor them at all. They will be facing a stronger side, the Rangers, who will be in this away matchup to scoop the three points. There have been over 2.5 goals netted in the last 6 premiership games played by Hamilton Academical.
Rangers are currently in the third position in the league standings. They have had a perfect away league form. This team has rebuilt their shape after the January transfer window. Having won their previous 4 away matches, Rangers will be aiming to sustain their form by coming out of this match with victory.
Hamilton Academical vs Rangers: Head-to-Head
In their last 4 away matches, Rangers have they managed to win both at halftime and fulltime against Hamilton Academical in all competitions.
In their previous 5 meetings, Rangers have won 4 times whilst Hamilton has won once. Actually the last time they met late last year was Rangers loose at home against Hamilton in a game that ended 0-2.
Hamilton Academical vs Rangers: Predictions
Given the quality of play displayed by Rangers and the current form of the home side, I cannot expect anything less than the three points being obtained by the away team.
The fact that Hamilton has conceded at least two goals in the last 3 home games also makes me foresee an over 2.5 goals outcome.
