Hearts vs Rangers Prediction

Even with two matches short of Hearts, Rangers have a 39 points difference with the former in the Premiership table. Moreover, it will be like the battle between the teams from both poles of the league standings at Edinburgh.

Since the guest has not lost in their last sixteen fixtures in the campaign, Rangers will be coming in hot for the Hearts to handle even with their home ground advantage.

It is not likely that Hearts has been putting those advantages to use in their league home matches. Evidently, the host has been winless in their prior five home matches with three losses in it.

Moreover, in their prior reverse fixture, Rangers had a 5-0 win against Hearts. So, we can be expecting a relapse of that match here at Edinburgh.

Apart from that, Rangers has not lost on the road in their past ten fixtures across all major competitions. Hence, the guest will not worry about their away handicap in the clash.

As such, you can expect nothing short of a high scoring affair win for Rangers and the guest to score a couple of goals probably with Defoe J contributing at least one in them.
