Rangers vs Bayer Leverkusen Match Preview

Bayer Leverkusen travel to Glasgow for their Europa League clash against Rangers in a great mood after outclassing Eintracht Frankfurt (4-0) over the weekend and extending a nine-match unbeaten streak across competitions – where they earned eight wins in a single draw since early February.

Peter Bosz’s men thus made the top 4 cut and will now certainly hope to retain such consistency, which promises a great challenge at Ibrox. They did struggle to keep clean sheets on the road but Leverkusen suffered just one loss in five away games as well, bagging a high total of 12 goals along the way.

Rangers have, on the other hand, lost on their consistency and while they come into the match with a narrow win over Ross County (0-1) behind them, it’s obvious Steven Gerrard’s men have a lot to prove. They’ve seen losses to Hearts (1-0) and Hamilton (0-1) beforehand, which will be more worrying.

Gers have been very tough to beat in front of the home fans and while it could be setting off alarms in Glasgow, the loss to Accies only ended a ten-match unbeaten streak here. They will now have to show character and we do feel we’ll see the home side in a good mood on Thursday evening.

We don’t see them grabbing a lead, though, and we’ll now rather stick our necks out for a Draw at 5/2 with bet365. We expect a very narrow occasion and hopefully a tough deadlock to break, which makes this more than just a lively longshot.

We feel Gers will have to show off at the back if they’re to hold off the in-form visitors. We have seen solid defensive displays at this ground on the regular and we are hoping for more of the same, as we go for Under 2.5 Goals FT at 19/20 with BetVictor,
