Rangers vs Hearts Prediction

Rangers were on the road the last match-day against Hamilton. But they paid no heed to it as the guests raced to a 1-3 win, with the third goal coming in the 90+3rd minute. Hearts in the meantime were defeated away from home by Kilmarnock, with a scoreline of 3-0. All three goals had come within the first fifteen minutes of the fixture.

This Sunday, Rangers easily take the tag of favorites. They are the best team in the country along with Celtic, and all other remaining squads lie far behind in terms of performances, as well as talent.

As of now, consider the recent form of both teams. Rangers are placed in the second spot in the table, sharing the same number of points with Celtic. They are also unbeaten in 37 of their last 40 matches and won 19 of their last 21 home fixtures.

Meanwhile, their opposite number were winless in eight of their last nine matches, and in 15 of their previous 19 on the road.

Finally, consider how extremely dominant Rangers have been against this opponent. Add home advantage too to this equation, and Hearts stand no chance to even raise a challenge against this opposition.

As such, a huge win for the hosts, Rangers, is surely on the cards.
