Ross County vs Rangers Prediction & Match Preview

Ross County vs Rangers
Scotland Premiership
Date: Sunday, 6 December 2020
Kick-Off at 12.00 UK
Venue: Global Energy Stadium, Dingwall.

After shocking Celtic (0-2) in League Cup last week, Ross County host Rangers and hope for a similar upset on Sunday in an attempt to close the gap to the top 6. They have proven themselves tough to beat at this ground and held off Hibernian (0-0) and Livingston (1-1) in their last two Premiership outings while beating Arbroath (2-1) and Stirling Albion (3-0) in League Cup.

Rangers, on the other hand, look to build on a nine-point gap at the top of the table. They come into the match after punching their ticket to Europa League knockout phases with a 3-2 win over Standard Liege, where Steven Gerrard’s men came back from behind twice.

Gers have thus earned their fourth win in five outings and extended the unbeaten streak to 23 games. They have been scoring numbers of goals along the way and bagged 21 just on those five occasions, which promises a great challenge at Global Energy Stadium. We have seen them rock-solid at the back when away from home too, so this will be great ground to build on.

Ross County vs Rangers Head-to-head

Rangers beat Ross County to Nil in all of their last four head-to-head matchups.

Gers scored two or more goals on three of those occasions.

Ross County never beat Rangers, with seven losses and three draws seen in ten games played so far.

Ross County vs Rangers Prediction

We will back Rangers to build on such dominant head-to-head records and bag the points in Dingwall despite a busy schedule on their hands. We hope to see another confident display at the back too, though, and we will thus go for an Away win to Nil at 1.80 – as it looks like the best approach to the fixture.

Still, seeing some of Ross County’s recent performances, we don’t really see this as a completely one-sided game in the making. We will thus go for few goals as well, backing Under 2.5 Goals FT at 2.75. Gers have been scoring many goals lately but you don’t have to go back far to see narrow wins over Standard Liege (0-2) and Kilmarnock (0-1) on the road.

Ross County vs Rangers Bet Tips

  • Rangers to win to Nil @ 1.80
