Rangers vs St Johnstone
Date: Sunday, 23rd September 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Ibrox Stadium (Glasgow).
The last game of the game week 6 in the Premiership is between Rangers and St Johnstone. Both teams have similar stats in the table, they have both won twice, drawn twice and lost once in this Premiership season.
The difference between them is their goals scoring ability in the 5 games played as they have both conceded same amount of goals 5. Rangers are brighter in attack having scored 10 goals in the 5 game played twice as much as St Johnstone who have scored 5 averaging 1 goal per game.
Rangers bounced back from the Celtic defeat in week 4 with the 4-0 win against Dundee in week 5. They also went away to Villarreal Spain in Midweek Europa League and got a good 2-2 draw, talking about 2 away goal advantage. They need to continue this good form with a home win in this game.
On the part of St Johnstone, except for the opening game away at Kilmarnock, St Johnstone have been unbeaten this season. In fact they have avoided defeat in the last 5 competitive game this include the league Cup 2nd round 4-2 win over Queen of the South.
The Saints only have little issue in scoring as they have only scored above 1 goal in one of the 5 Premiership games played. This is should be a cause for concern as they face Rangers who can score up to 3 or more on their good days. They are not in the European competition and that’s a bit of advantage to them giving that their hosts may be battling fatigue.
