Rangers vs Midtjylland
Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 15 August 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Ibrox Stadium (Glasgow).
Rangers certainly proved their worth in the maiden encounter between the two sides, which finished 4-2 in favor of the hosts. Four different players got their names on the scoresheet for Steven Gerrard’s team who took just seven attempts at goal throughout the ninety minutes.
The visitors worked the opposing goalkeeper with five of their shots being on target, but were far from clinical in those efforts and managed to find the back of the net no more than twice. The defeat has also brought Midtjylland’s four-match unbeaten run to a halt.
Although the side from Denmark did bounce back from the defeat with a 2-0 win over Horsens in the league soon after, it certainly needs saying that the Rangers are a much tougher team to take down, especially in their own backyard.

The first leg of their tie from last week is the only meeting between the two outfits.
Rangers vs Midtjylland Prediction
The home team are unbeaten in their last ten games on home soil, in all competitions, and have been picking up very convincing wins in their clashes so far. The squad’s last matchup here, saw them post a very resounding 6-1 win over Hibernian, with Jermain Defoe netting half the goals for his side on his own.
Additionally, Midtjylland have a lot of ground to make up as it is, because of the four away goals that they conceded. Considering that Rangers have also scored fourteen goals from their last three home clashes alone, a win for the side from Denmark at this venue is certainly not in the cards by any means.
However, the away side have been an attacking presence in all of their recent matchups and have netted seven goals from their last five games, three of which came from their trips on the road. Taking into account that they also managed to breach Rangers in their prior clash, you can count on them to find the back the net at least once, and to go down fighting till the last blast of the whistle.
