Date: Wednesday, 23rd January 2019.
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Rugby Park (Kilmarnock).
Rangers cannot afford to lose a game now as they are equal on points with Celtic who are at the top of the table. But they will have to go through the Killie who are on great home form at the moment.
Steve Clarke’s team are unbeaten in their last 5 matches in all competitions. They have won 4 of them and less than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of those matches. The only game they lost in the last 10 fixtures was against Celtic in December 2018.
At home, they are on a 5 match win streak currently. Three of those 5 matches had more than 2.5 goals at the final whistle. The fact is that a win for either team may change the top of the table. The Killie are just a point behind their opponents for Wednesday.
Rangers are second in the table to the Celts only on goal difference. A total of 43 goals have been scored by them in the Premiership and only 16 have been conceded. They too are on a 5 match unbeaten run in the league. With only 3 defeats till now, they have lost the least among all teams in the competition.
But Steven Gerrard has work to do regarding his teams away performance recently. His side has 2 wins and a loss in the last 5 matches on the road. Three of those games saw a score with less than 2.5 goals and both teams scored in 3 games too.
This game promises to be a classic match and it will definitely be tightly contested like their previous meetings.
