Midtjylland vs Rangers Match Preview
Two teams that have started the 2019-20 season in terrific form go head-to-head for a place in the Europa League play-off round – and we like Rangers’ chances of maintaining their hopes of a return to the group stage.
There is no question Steven Gerrard has got the Glasgow giants surging forwards both domestically and on the continent, having taken the Gers to the Europa League round-robin phase in his first season at the helm and close to reaching the knockout section.
They have kept up the good work so far this term, enjoying an excellent pre-season and easing through their opening two continental qualifiers without conceding a goal before a last-gasp Scottish Premiership win on Sunday, 2-1 away to Kilmarnock.
But this represents a big step up in quality of opposition for Rangers from the Gibraltar and Luxembourg teams they beat previously because Midtjylland are very useful, finishing runners-up in the Danish Super Liga last term and beginning the new campaign superbly.
The team from the city of Herning make their European debut for this season having won four out of four domestically, conceding only one goal so far and with young Brazilian playmaker Evander starting to make a name for himself with some sparkling performances.
However, there is so much to admire about Rangers’ progress that it is difficult to oppose them just now and with an excellent record in Denmark, they are fancied to make it four wins out of four on their visits to that Scandinavian country.
