Willem II vs Rangers
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 24 September 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Konig Willem II Stadion.
The Teddy Bears were the runners-up of the Premiership the last season, and they have been playing second fiddle to the Celtic for the quite some time in Scotland. However, they are determined to put an end to the dominance of their arch-rivals Celtic, and have raced to a phenomenal start in 2020-21.
They are at the top of the table with an unbeaten record, and up until the last match-day (the eighth), they had not even conceded a single goal in the competition.
It’s clear that Steven Gerrard’s men are fighting like possessed, and it would take a team of great quality to put a stop to their run. And for sure the Tricolores are not that team.
They could finish just a paltry fifth in the Eredivisie the last season, and they also been struggling lately to find form.
Considering these observations, expect a Rangers win this Thursday.

- This is the very first match-up between these two teams.
Willem II vs Rangers: Prediction
Adrie Koster’s men were winless in ten of their former sixteen overall match-ups, and have a total of just four wins at home in their former nine attempts.
In the meantime, their opposite number were unbeaten in thirteen of their last fourteen overall fixtures, and had also won eleven of these match-ups.
Also note that they had scored two or more goals in eleven of their preceding fourteen fixtures, and they also had netted four or more goals in two of their previous three matches.
And on the road, they have lost just once in the past seven months, and the defeat had come in the Europa League, against Leverkusen.
In short, Gerrard’s men are simply too hot at present to handle, and the struggling Willem will have an uphill task this Thursday. Expect a comfortable Rangers win.
