St. Johnstone vs Rangers Prediction

St. Johnstone were held to a 1-1 draw by Ross County the last day. The former was on the road, and the scoreline was 1-1. The fact that Johnstone were denied the three points by a newly-promoted team, says a lot about the overall form of the team, and what to expect against Rangers, one of the best teams in Scotland.

Meanwhile, the above-mentioned Rangers registered a 1-0 victory at home, against Livingston. After a rocky few games in February, where the Rangers uncharacteristically dropped some points, the win was a welcome change for fans. The team will surely be adamant about registering a confidence-boosting win this Sunday.

In regards to the result this match-day – Rangers have been one of the best teams in the Premiership for a very long time. As of now, they are placed second in the table, and have scored a total of 61 goals. Moreover, disregarding the toppers Celtic, not a single other team has even touched even the 40-goal mark.

Moreover, Johnstone were winless in nine of their last fourteen matches at home, and have conceded three or more goals in two of their former three home appearances. On the other hand, Rangers were unbeaten in 44 of their last 49 fixtures, and were so in 20 of their prior 23 road trips. 

In addition, Rangers had won the reverse fixture 0-4, and they recorded 32 of the past 38 h2h wins. Also, at this venue, the guests are on a five-game winning run, and have lost just once since 2000. Taking all these findings into account, expect a dominating win for Rangers at the McDiarmid Park.
