Rangers vs Young Boys Betting Preview | 12 Dec 2019

Knowing that a point will be enough to secure their spot in the knockout stage of this year’s Europa League, Rangers will welcome Young Boys to Ibrox on Thursday night.

Looking to bounce immediately backing after their Scottish League Cup Final defeat against Celtic over the weekend, the Blues have continued on what has been a hugely successful European campaign.

A 2-1 defeat against Thursday’s guests is their only loss in their five Group G appearances and they still find themselves holding a one-point buffer at the top of the standings entering their final European outing.

On the flip side, continuing to show some glaring inconsistencies both domestically and while on Europa League duties, the Swiss outfit know that nothing short of three points on foreign soil can see them pull off what would be a shock top-two finish in Group G.

With Young Boys suffering a 2-1 loss against Porto in their last European display, you might be interested to know that Rangers can be found at 5/6 with Coral to right their wrong and clinch all three points in Glasgow.

Alfredo Morelos to steal the show?

After watching Celtic lift the League Cup in dramatic fashion over the weekend, Head Coach Steven Gerrard will be looking for his side to make an immediate response.

With that defeat over their weekend their first loss since the 3rd of October, a huge part of their continued success has been their form on home soil.

Including winning back-to-back Europa League matches at Ibrox, the Scottish outfit have won each of their last nine matches in Glasgow and the mood in their camp remains at a high.

If Rangers are to sign off their Europa League campaign in style on Thursday, then there is no doubt that the former England midfielder will be calling on leading marksman Alfredo Morelos to lead their charge.

Despite missing from the spot over the weekend, the 23-year-old starlet has already bagged 25 strikes across all competitions this season and has remained a constant in Europe.

With five strikes in Group G and averaging a goal every 89 minutes, you might be interested to know that Morelos can be found at 6/5 with Paddy Power to once again find the net at Ibrox.

Young Boys continue to struggle on foreign soil

While Young Boys might still find themselves holding a one-point buffer at the top of the Swiss Super League, Gerardo Seoane’s side have started to show some signs of a wobble.

Hit with back-to-back defeats entering December, they now find themselves chasing down a one-point deficit to Thursday’s hosts and nothing short of a victory will do them in midweek.

Needing what many would call a minor miracle if they’re to secure a route out of Group G, the Swiss outfit can be found priced as high as 9/1 with Bet365 to clinch a top-two finish.

Suffering a 3-0 hammering away at Basel in their last matchup away from the Stade de Suisse, Thursday’s guests have also continued to show some glaring issues while on foreign soil.

Seoane’s men have remarkably failed to win any of their last 10 Europa League matches on the road, a run that stems all the way back to November 2014.
