Rangers vs Hibernian Prediction
In their previous encounter, Rangers faced Aberdeen at home which ended in a goalless draw. It was their second winless game within the last five league fixtures. It has reduced their chances of lifting the Premiership title this season.
With Defoe’s injury, the Rangers have had trouble finding the back of the net. It’s another worrying injury for Gerrard with James Tavernier, Ryan Jack and Greg Stewart all struggling with injuries.
However, Florian Kamberi is likely to appear against his former team after the transfer. The home team fans can hope if Kamberi can make any difference in the match.
However, the host has gone through hard times before and has made a comeback. Since it is their third consecutive home match in their schedule, we can hope for the Gers to perform well. Also, they have lost only one of their 11 home matches so far in the campaign.
Hibernian will be visiting after a 2-2 draw with St. Mirren at home. They have marked only four wins in their past ten overall matches across major contests. Also, they have not beaten Rangers in the previous seven h2h clashes.
Hence, the punters can go with Rangers as the favorites to win the game. Significantly, two of the three h2h meetings with the Hibs have seen Rangers winning in both halves of the matches.
As such, there is a probability that the same trend might be repeated in the upcoming match as the host is in dire need of those three points. The Gers have scored 57 goals in their 23 matches. Meanwhile, the Hibs have secured 33 goals in 23 appearances. Henceforth, we can expect the total score to go over 2.5 goals in ninety minutes.
