Prediction: Alashkert vs Rangers

Prediction: Rangers to win 3-0

Best Odds: 9/1

Bookmaker: Betfair

Alashkert and Rangers will face each other in the Europa League Qualifying Playoff Second-Leg tie. The match will be played at Republican Stadium after Vazgen Sargsyan in Yerevan and is scheduled to kick off at 4pm UK time on Thursday.

Alashkert

Alashkert suffered a 1-0 defeat to Rangers at Ibrox in the first leg last week. John Lundstram was sent off for the defending Scottish Premiership champions, but the Armenian club could not take advantage of their one-man advantage. 

However, playing at home will give Aleksandr Grigoryan’s side an advantage, and they will also be fully aware that they need just a goal to take the game into extra time. Alashkert will head into the match against Rangers on the back of a goalless draw with Seven in the league.

Team News:

Winger Aghvan Papikyan could start after recovering from injury.

Rangers

Rangers did well to win 1-0 in the first leg despite a one-man disaldvanateh, but the Gers will now that it is not going to be that easy in the away leg away from home. Steven Gerrard’s side have to be at their very best and need to score the first goal at Republican Stadium after Vazgen Sargsyan in Yerevan to give themselves a better chance of going through.

The Gers will head into the match against Alashkert on the back of a 4-2 victory over Ross County away from home in the Scottish Premiership.

Team News:

Lundstram is suspended. Glen Karama is available after serving his suspension.

  • Alashkert have lost three of their last six competitive games.
  • Rangers have won their last three competitive games.
  • Alashkert have won one of their last six competitive matches.
  • Rangers have lost three of their last six competitive matches.

Conclusion

Alashkert will not be easy pushovers, but Rangers will be determined to get the job done in the second leg and will be successful in that quest.
