Rangers vs Ross County Match Preview

Rangers had their winning streak put to an end the last match-day, by Hearts. The former were on the road, and lost the game 2-1.

Meanwhile, Ross County too were away from home, and had to take on reigning champions Celtic. Expectedly, the guests lost, and by a considerable margin as well. The scorecard read 0-3 at the end of the fixture.

It’s tough for Ross County that they are supposed to take on Celtic, and the Rangers in back-to-back games. But that’s just how football is, and the newly-promoted team will have to deal with this challenge.

Rangers vs Ross County Prediction

By all means Rangers are overwhelming favorites this Wednesday. They have been the best team in Scotland along with Celtic for a very long time, and on top of that they have the home advantage as well.

On the other hand, Ross County are severely inexperienced against top-tier clubs, and had gained promotion to this first division just this season.

Moreover, Rangers had won seven of their former eight clashes, and an impressive 22 of their previous 26 home fixtures. Also keep note that the team had kept clean sheets in five of their last eight overall fixtures, and in nine of their preceding thirteen games in front of the home crowd.

On the other hand, Ross County are on a streak of six winless games, and were so in 15 of their prior 17. 

On the road, they are on a run of nine winless match-ups, and had failed to score in three of their last four such matches. In addition, they had also conceded twice or more in six of their past eight road trips.

Going on, Rangers are unbeaten against this opponent in the last 20 years, and they had won the reverse fixture on the road, 0-4. They are also on a four-game winning run against Ross County.

Taking into account all these observations, it’s deduced that Rangers are the best bet to post a massive win this Wednesday.
