Motherwell vs Rangers Prediction

Motherwell extended their winning streak to three matches on the trot after they edged past Hearts with a 1-0 scorecard. The hosts are certainly on a solid run of form at the moment and have scored eight goals from those clashes alone, whilst conceding none.

With just two defeats from their last seven fixtures, the home side have propelled themselves into the top three.

On the other hand, Rangers will be making the trip to Fir Park on the back of a disappointing 1-0 defeat at the hands of Celtic in the Scotland League Cup. The visitors failed to come away with the win in their last Premiership clash against Aberdeen on the road as well after the latter managed to hold them to a 2-2 draw.

Nevertheless, the away side are still second on the ladder, with a massive seven-point cushion over the hosts. It is also worth mentioning that the guests are yet to stumble in their outings this term.

In sharp contrast, Motherwell have admitted defeat in three of their last nine games here. To make matters worse, the hosts have not secured the bragging rights in any of their previous six clashes with this foe at home.

As such, Rangers are more than just likely to be too hot to handle for the home side.

Additionally, Motherwell have been a confident bunch at Fir Park this season. They have found the back of the net nine times from their last four clashes here alone.

Meanwhile, Rangers have not been consistent in keeping their foes at bay. The guests have just two clean sheets from their past five outings in the league and have conceded four goals in the process as well.

Taking into account that both teams have also found the back of the net together in three of their previous four h2h meetings here, count on Motherwell to bag a consolation goal in this one.
