Rangers vs Feyenoord
Date: Thursday, 19 September 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Ibrox Stadium (Glasgow).
Feyenoord had begun their season on a rather unimpressive note. With three straight draws to begin their league campaign, the team invited some early pressure. But showing their quality, the squad responded with back-to-back wins and climbed to the seventh position in the table.
Last season while they had managed to finish third in league standings, the top two was entirely on another level to the rest, and as such stood no chance in ending up in Champions League qualifying spots.
This time around, they have a chance to make things different but will have to keep up with this form.
This intense pressure that Jaap Stam’s men encounter week-in, week-out, in the comparatively superior Dutch league molds them as the favorite for this fixture. But the question remains how they will tackle the away handicap for the day.
The Rangers may be in the Scottish Premiership, but it needs to be mentioned that the squad is easily one of the best in the competition, and the absolute best disregarding Celtic. They have expectedly begun with doling out wins, and have built up some momentum to help their cause.
Rangers vs Feyenoord Head-to-head (h2h)
- Only twice have these two lined up against each other in the last two decades.

- Feyenoord recorded a 3-2 win at home, in response to the draw they had been inflicted on the road a week earlier.
Rangers vs Feyenoord Prediction
Due to the Dutch outfit taking part in a superior league, and being part of a much more competitive surrounding, Feyenoord has the scales tipped in their direction. Also, they have been quite on the form on the road these days, that the last they lost such a tie was back in March.
Moreover, the team is unbeaten against this opponent, and the last they met against each other in this same competition, the team from Rotterdam had progressed.
As such, count on the guests to avoid a loss at the least.
But the form Rangers have been on cannot be simply discounted. Add to this their home advantage, and the fact that every single encounter between these two ended with goals at either end of the pitch.
Finally, only twice have the hosts lost at this venue in 2019, and one was against defending champions of the Premiership, Celtic.
Taking these observations into account, rely on these two units to slot in goals at either end of the pitch.
