Hibernian vs Rangers Match Preview

Rangers travel to Edinburgh for their Matchday 19 clash in good spirits after beating Motherwell (0-2) and ending a three-match winless streak across competitions at Fir Park, as Nikola Katic and Alfredo Morelos made it on the scoresheet and secured a comfortable win for Steven Gerrard’s men.

Gers have seen troubles across competitions and while only a League Cup to Celtic (0-1) really hurt, the 1-1 home draw to Young Boys proved just enough for a top 2 spot in Europa League Group G and a 2-2 draw against Aberdeen set them two points behind Celtic at the top of the table.

Hibernian, on the other hand, come into the match with a 2-0 loss at Celtic behind them and the tough schedule continues here, after showing off against Aberdeen just a week before in a 3-0 win – where Martin Boyle bagged a brace and Florian Kamberi added one in the second half.

Hibs still bagged a total of 14 goals in their last six home outings and we now hope for another tough challenge from them. They sit 6th after 18 games played and have Ross County (who have a game in hand) breathing down their necks, which will surely be all the more motivation to shine.

They have been a tough nut to crack for Rangers here in the recent past and Seven Gerrard will surely be well-aware of the fact his men snatched all three points just once in six games at Easter Road. We do feel they’ll now be able to outgun the rivals, though, and we’ll be going for an Away win and a Yes on Both teams to score at 9/5 with BetVictor.

With that in mind, it’s easy to expect goals and both sides’ recent records suggest the same – a high-scoring delight on Friday evening. With that in mind, we’re also going for Over 2.5 Goals FT at 8/15 with bet365, which seems like a solid approach by itself.
