Borussia Dortmund vs Rangers Prediction 17 February 2022

Borussia Dortmund hosts Rangers in the first leg of the Europa League 1/16 finals. The match will be played on Thursday, February 17th at Signal Iduna Park (Dortmund)
Borussia Dortmund looks ambiguous under the management of Marco Rose. The fact that the team did not qualify for the Champions League playoffs already speaks volumes. Let me remind you that the Yellow-Blacks took only third place in the group, lagging behind Ajax and Sporting. In six games, the German team scored ten goals and conceded 11 times. Five of six matches in the group stage ended with Over 2.5 goals scored. In general, Rose’s men are quite strong. But they cannot oppose really powerful opponents. For example, in recent matches against Bayer Leverkusen, Bayern Munich, Sporting, RB Leipzig, and Ajax, the Yellow-Blacks did not gain a single victory!

Glasgow Rangers made it to the 1/8 finals of the Europa League, taking 2nd place in the group with Lyon, Sparta Prague, and Brøndby. The Light Blues earned eight points in six games. It is noteworthy that in autumn they played under the management of Steven Gerrard. Currently, they are headed by a new coach, Giovanni van Bronckhorst. After the Dutchman started working with the team, it dropped to 2nd place in the Scottish Premiership standings. And by the way, I do not rule out that because of this, the European Cup will fade into the background. All six matches of the Light Blues in the group stage ended with Under 2.5 goals scored. Taking into account last season, their last ten games in the Europa League ended with this outcome.
Borussia Dortmund and Rangers played against each other eight times. However, all matches took place in the last century. The Germans gained one victory, while the Scots won three times. In seven of the nine previous Rangers’ away games in the Europa League, more than two goals were not scored. Yes, Borussia is stronger. But the Yellow-Blacks cannot boast of stability in the current season. If the Scots play carefully in defense, they may well gain a positive result. And the Teddy Bears know how to defend their penalty area. In the group stage of the UEL, they conceded only five goals. And there are only 21 goals conceded in 26 games of the Scottish Premiership. In addition, Haaland’s participation in the upcoming game is questionable, so the visitors will have good chances of showing a good game in defense.

Prediction for the match:

Rangers to win with +2.0 handicap
