Motherwell vs Rangers
2018/19 Scottish Premiership
Date: Sunday, 26th August 2018
Kick-off at 12:15 UK/ 13:15 CET
Venue: Fir Park (Motherwell).

Rangers will hope to continue their winning ways as they travel to Fir Park to face Motherwell on Sunday.

Motherwell have been in the shadows after the first 2 games, they are currently in the bottom of the table with no point. The Well had a good season last term, they reached the two domestic cups finals but lost them to Celtic.

They lost to Hibs in the first game as they were comfortably beaten at Easter Road, they later lost to Hamilton in the second game and dropped to the bottom of the table. Last week, they won their league Cup game and have reached the quarter-finals after beating Livingston. They still have a lot to worry about as they are yet to find the net in the Premiership and they are about to play their hardest game of the season.

Steven Gerrard is yet to taste defeat as a manager. He extended the unbeaten run with Rangers as they beat FC Ufa in the Europa League qualifier. They beat Ufa with just a lone goal at Ibrox, a game that many chances were spurned.

Rangers have 4 points from the first 2 games and are 3rd in the group table at the moment. Gerard will be aiming to get the Gers better than last season and finish at least 2nd.

Motherwell vs Rangers: Head to Head

Rangers have lost just once to Motherwell in their last 6 meetings, which was in the league Cup semi-final. Rangers have won 3 of the last 6 meetings and drawn twice.

Motherwell vs Rangers: Prediction

This is a tough one to call, Motherwell caused an upset in the Scottish football last season. They also knocked out Ranger out of League Cup and got to the final do the Gers have revenge in mind as they enter this game.

Rangers are the better side and we are backing them to win this one but we don’t expect to see a goal galore.
