Rangers vs Dundee
Date: Wednesday, 27 February 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Ibrox Stadium (Glasgow).
Rangers are flying high coming into mid-week’s home tie with relegation strugglers Dundee.
The hosts head into the match off the back of two separate 5-0 wins. They first demolished Kilmarnock in front of the home crowd in the FA Cup, just four days after storming past Hamilton Academical on the road in the Premiership.
Steven Gerrard can thus be thrilled with both attacking and defensive shape his team showed in recent ties. The Gers kept their net untouched in last four games across competitions.
The hosts should have a nice chance to keep such splendid form going here against Dundee who allowed four goals in the home defeat to Hibernian at the weekend.
The Dee shipped two or more goals in three of last five matches in all competitions. They conceded 28 goals in 13 away matches in this term of Premiership.
Rangers vs Dundee: Head-to-head
Rangers were the dominant force in the history of head to head matches with the Dee.
They won 15 and lost just 2 of 17 home ties against Dundee.
Rangers bagged four goals in each of past three home encounters with Dundee.
Rangers vs Dundee: Prediction
We can’t expect anything other but a comprehensive victory for the Gers here. They are eight points shy of Celtic at the top of the standings, but a victory here and a potential slip-up from the champions away at Hearts could get Rangers back into the title contest.
Gerrard’s troops generally played very well in front of their fans throughout the season. Rangers won 9, drew 3 and lost only 1 of 13 home outings in this term of Premiership. They conceded only six goals in the process. Only Celtic allowed fewer goals at home this season (five).
Rangers are 1.61 to keep fifth consecutive clean sheet while we will also back them to win by at least two goals difference at the odds of 1.50.
Rangers vs Dundee: Bet Tips
