Rangers vs FC Porto Head-to-head (h2h)
- They have met thrice since 2005 and the host has succeeded once in 2005 at home.
- The last encounters at the Dragon’s home in 2019 ended in a 1-1 draw.
Rangers vs FC Porto Prediction
Rangers will be coming in with an unbeaten streak in the last six games with two draws in it. Also, the hosting side has kept two clean sheets in the last two attempts. Even so, they have been playing in the Scottish Premiership which is slightly less competitive compared to the guest’s Portuguese Primeira Liga. As such, based on the league’s strength and performances, the visitor gets an early advantage in the game.
Besides that, FC Porto has sufficed only one loss in the last ten matches in their schedule. With only two draws in the nine unbeaten games, the guest stands strong in their form. Evidently, their away fixture performance in the overall major contests is also favoring them. The traveling side has lost two of the last ten away fixtures in the major competitions. Also, their last trip on the road against Maritimo in the Primeira Liga subtending a draw in the end.
In their h2h encounters with the Portuguese outfits, the host has stayed unbeaten with their lone win in 2005. Their recent encounter in 2019 ended in the teams sharing the spoils in the Light Blue’s visit. As such, the chances for a draw is still alive in the game.
Apart from that, even though it is not a group with big names, Group G has witnessed some close encounters in this season. The teams are almost close to each other and have become one of the unpredictable groups in the campaign. In the group, both teams have marked all possible outcomes in the three appearances.
As such, the visitor has more chance of winning the game. Since it is not their home ground, it is safer to go with a double chance in the game.
