Rangers vs Motherwell
Scotland Premiership
Date: Saturday, 19 December 2020
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: Ibrox Stadium, Glasgow.

Rangers have seen their five-match winning streak ended with their first loss this term, as St Mirren shocked them in a five-goal thriller. It felt they’re to retain the unbeaten run when Davis found the net late on but Steven Gerrard’s men conceded in stoppage-time and dropped all three points at SMISA Stadium.

Gers now host Motherwell and look to bounce quickly, having proven themselves dominant at Ibrox so far. They bagged 17 goals in the last four games at this ground and we’re hoping for another great display in the final third, despite what’s felt like a major disappointment last week.

Motherwell still sit 5th but they’re seen disappointments of their own lately. They suffered four losses in five games and only held St Johnstone to a 1-1 draw along the way. Hibs (0-3) and St Mirren (0-1) both snatched the points at Fir Park since early December and doing more in Glasgow will be very hard indeed. Quite interestingly, Well have done more on the road recently but it’s also obvious Rangers will be the toughest challengers yet.

Rangers vs Motherwell Head-to-head

  • Rangers beat Motherwell in all of the last six head-to-head encounters.
  • Gers scored three or more goals on four of those occasions too.
  • Motherwell last snatched a point in a 3-3 draw back in 2018 and last beat Gers in 2017 (0-2 in League Cup semi-finals).

Rangers vs Motherwell Prediction

We will now back Rangers to build on such dominant records against Motherwell and we feel they’ll be able to keep hold of the gap at the top of the table. Still, we hope to see a solid challenge from the visitors who will looking to exploit the open spaces at the back, as we go for a Home win and a YES on Both teams to score.

With that in mind, it’s easy to make a case for a high-scoring occasion in Glasgow. We have seen Gers scoring numbers of goals against Motherwell and we feel they will be able to build on solid records up front once again. We are thus going for Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.53 as more of a banker bet at this point.
