Rangers vs St. Mirren Prediction & Match Preview

Rangers vs St. Mirren
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 2nd February 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Ibrox Stadium (Glasgow).

Haven’t the Buddies suffered enough? Now they have to make a trip to Glasgow to take on the mighty Gers of all teams?

The team from Paisley looks set for relegation this summer. They have failed to record at least half a point per game on average and has been the worst team on the road bar none. On top of that, they have also conceded the most number of goals away from home.

The Teddy Bears might not be as cuddly as their name would indicate. They are in an eternal battle for supremacy in the Premiership with Celtic, and it does not matter to them what kind of misery the other team is going through.

The only advice I have for the Saints is, be strong. You guys are in for a tough night.

Rangers vs St. Mirren Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The 16 h2h games at this venue resulted in 14 wins for the Gers.
  • The combined scorecard for all the matches played at the stadium is 41-9, in favor of the hosts.

Rangers vs St. Mirren Prediction

The domination of the Teddy Bears is really felt when it comes to light that the overall h2h record is 29 wins to just two losses. And both these losses came almost a decade back. Even impressive is their achievement at home that, the hosts have never allowed the Buddies to return with three points. Not even once. To make the stat look more stylish, note that except for two draws, one in 2011 and another in 2006, Steven Gerrard’s men have always ensured three easy points.

Going forward, take into account that the Saints have been winless in 15 of their last 16 away ties, and in 21 of their last 24 overall games. Their opponents complement this stat with the fact that they have lost just one of their last 22 home-ties.

The inference is that the team managed by the Liverpool legend will record another huge win against this fragile visitor.
