Bitesize Prediction: Rangers vs Dundee FC – 14/05/24

Competition: Scottish Premiership

Market: Cyriel Dessers to score anytime

Odds: 10/11 @ 1xBet

Simply hoping to claim some kind of boost on Tuesday night, Rangers will welcome Dundee to Ibrox.

Starting with the hosts, suffering a heartbreaking 2-1 loss away at arch-rivals Celtic over the weekend, Rangers watched their Premiership title ambitions go up in smoke. Showing some extended inconsistencies since returning from March’s international break, Philippe Clement’s men will simply be hoping to claim some kind of response here. Last seen at Ibrox storming their way to a routine 4-1 romp against Kilmarnock, the former Club Brugge boss rightfully finds his squad pencilled in as a landslide contender on Tuesday night. Notching 12 goals in just their previous four Premiership showdowns in front of their own supporters, Rangers will be calling on their attacking talisman to spearhead their charge in Glasgow. Bagging what turned out to be an Old Firm consolation strike against their bitter rivals on Saturday lunchtime, Cyriel Dessers has continued to shine this season. Now notching four goals in as many domestic appearances, the Nigeria international has recorded 14 strikes for club and country since opening up the New Year.

As for the visitors, while Dundee might have spring a real upset this season as they secured a top-half finish, Tony Docherty’s men are limping their way over the finishing line. Last seen over the weekend putting in a nightmare performance at Tynecastle as they slumped to a routine 3-0 drumming at the hands of Hearts, the Dark Blues have now lost all of their previous three Premiership appearances by an aggregate score of 8-2. Opening May with a worrying 3-1 loss against St. Mirren, the midweek guests have also mustered just a pair of points from any of their last six showdowns against top-flight opposition. Likewise, recording just a pair of victories since the middle of February, Dundee have also continued to show a string of glaring issues on the road this season. Including an infamous 7-1 defeat against Celtic on February 28th, Docherty’s downbeat squad have claimed just a sole win from any of their last seven straight matchups away from Dens Park – a run that stems back to January 27th.
