Reasons for Our Osijek vs Rangers Predictions

It was fairly straightforward for Rangers against Macedonian outfit Shkupi last week but Steven Gerrard’s side face an altogether tougher trip to Croatia on July 26th. The first of our free football tips is for the match to end all-square at Stadion Gradski vrt. Osijek have already beaten Dutch behemoths PSV at this stage of the competition before narrowly crashing out to Austria Vienna in 2017. They also beat Luzern here last year and have already walloped St.Johnstone 3-0 during a recent club friendly. They are difficult to beat on their own patch and Rangers won’t relish this trip to Eastern Croatia but they should be able to remain competitive and take at least a draw back to Ibrox. The first of our Osijek vs Rangers predictions is draw and it is available at 11/5 with William Hill. 

These away Europea League play-off games are rarely high-scoring and fitness levels are often reasonably low. The game could be played at a slow-ish pace and a low-scoring outcome looks likely. Osijek have kept three consecutive clean sheets in recent friendlies whilst five of their last eight Europa League Qualifiers have ended with fewer than three goals. No team since 2012 has scored more than two goals against them on their own patch in this competition therefore the second of our Osijek vs Rangers predictions is Under 2.5 Goals which is available at 8/13 with Ladbrokes.

Rangers should be able to get the better of this opposition in Scotland in seven days time and they will be keen to not have a deficit to make up. Staying in the game is vitally important and they will be reasonably satisfied with a 1-1 draw. The third and final one of our Europa League betting predictions is 1-1 Correct Score which is available at 21/4 with 888Sport and that is a standout price.

Osijek Key Player vs Rangers

Ezekiel Henty is on loan from Videoton and despite playing for a number of clubs over the past couple of years, he has a decent goalscoring record. The Nigerian scored 3 in 10 for Puskas and 5 in 15 for his parent club Videton. He could be a thorn in Rangers’ side all evening and will be looking to make an impression for his new club.

Rangers Key Player vs Osijek

Ryan Jack may be a walking-booking but he will be tasked with putting his foot in and ensuring his side remain on track to take something back to Scotland. He will look to break up play and get things moving forward once more. He often divides opinion but his presence is important in matches like this.
