Rangers vs Young Boys Match Preview
A fascinating and ultra-tight Europa League Group G campaign draws to a close on Thursday with Rangers having their destiny entirely in their own hands.
Three points covers all four clubs in this pool and any of them can still qualify, with the only certainty being that bottom-placed Feyenoord cannot finish top.
First position is currently held by Rangers, for whom the good news is that naturally if they win at home to Young Boys, and avenge their 2-1 defeat in Switzerland, it will be job done on all fronts – they will be through to the knockout stage as group winners.
A draw would be enough for Steven Gerrard’s side to advance, although they would then need Feyenoord to avoid defeat at Porto to win the group. Losing to Young Boys would mean elimination for the Gers if Porto beat Feyenoord.
So it’s all quite complicated, but Rangers are undefeated in their last 15 European matches at Ibrox dating back to 2011 before their financial meltdown and have also won the last eight games on their own pitch.
There is further motivation in the sense that the Glasgow giants will be smarting from losing the Scottish League Cup Final at the weekend to their Old Firm rivals Celtic and while this is a real test of their nerve, Rangers are expected to come through it with flying colours.
