Rangers vs Galatasaray
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 1 October 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Ibrox Stadium.
This is one of the rare match-ups in this final stage of European qualification, where either team look to be on equal footing. Both teams could be considered to be performing at a high level at present, and they are also amongst the absolute best teams in their respective leagues.
Likely, we can anticipate a fierce encounter filled with goals. However, considering the sheer consistency of the Teddy Bears at home coupled with the recent struggles of the Lions on the road, expect a slight edge for Rangers.
Rangers vs Galatasaray: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Turks have a 100% unbeaten record against this opponent so far.
- The last time these two clashed on the pitch, spoils were shared with a goalless draw, and before that, the Lions had recorded a 3-2 win.
Rangers vs Galatasaray: Prediction
Steven Gerrard’s men were unbeaten in 15 of their previous 16 overall games. In fact, they have lost just against one team in the last six months, and it was against Leverkusen – a team from the German Bundesliga.
On top of that, they are on a six-fixture winning run at home, and in the process had recorded a combined scorecard of 18-0.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in six of their past eight road trips, and have had a total of just five wins away from home in the whole of 2020 so far.
Likely, Rangers seem to be the better team this Thursday, and could be counted on to win at least one of the halves.
However, understand that this is the final game for Europa qualification, and the Lions will play it as such. They will give their absolute best on the pitch, and it also needs to be mentioned that they have a 100% unbeaten h2h record against this rival.
Finally, they are also unbeaten in their past ten overall match-ups. It’s logical to think that they will find the back of the net at least once this Thursday.
