Glasgow Rangers host Crvena Zvezda in the first leg of the Europa League 1/8 finals. The match will be played on Thursday, March 10th at Ibrox Stadium (Glasgow)
Rangers made one of the main sensations in the Europa League 1/16 finals. Van Bronckhorst’s men confidently dealt with Borussia Dortmund (6-4 on aggregate). It is noteworthy that three out of six goals were scored by right-back James Tavernier. Let me remind you that the Light Blues took 2nd place in the group stage. They didn’t perform well and earned only eight points in six games. Rangers have already played five home matches in the current UEL draw, and the following results were recorded: three victories, one draw, and one defeat. The Teddy Bears scored at least twice in the last three games. Five out of six previous home games at home in this tournament ended with “Both teams to score — no.”

Crvena Zvezda also played in the group stage of the Europa League. Dejan Stankovic’s men earned 11 points in six games, and this was enough to finish in first place. This club has historically performed well at home in European competitions. But their away results are far from stable. Even in the current European campaign, the Red-Whites gained only one victory and two draws in three away matches. But in general, they have achieved quite decent away statistics in the UEL in recent years. In the last seven games, Crvena Zvezda gained three victories and three draws and suffered only one defeat.
These teams crossed paths twice in the 21st century, and Rangers won one victory and one draw. In total, the Light Blues and the Red-Whites played against each other seven times (all matches in the Champions League): three victories for the Scots and two wins for the Serbs. Rangers dumbfounded Borussia Dortmund in the first leg and managed to score twice in the second. I fully admit that the Scots will also attack a lot in the upcoming match. And I think that due to the high class of performers, they will again score a couple of goals. However, the Serbs have no problems with motivation, and they probably expect to score as well. I recommend betting on high production in the upcoming game.
