Free Betting Tips for Rangers vs RB Leipzig

Rangers might have lost the 1st-leg in Germany but with just one goal separating the two clubs heading into Thursday's deciding leg at Ibrox, you have to give the hosts a big chance of progressing through their Europa League Semi-Final. RB Leipzig were the favourites to progress as soon as the draw was made but didn't do enough in the 1st leg to establish a commanding lead.

Rangers to Win

Rangers have a strong home record and their fans will create a daunting atmosphere for the travelling RB Leipzig fans on Thursday night. The host shave picked up four wins from their last six matches in all competitions, beating Braga 3-1 at Ibrox in the last round. RB Leipzig have lost two of their last three outings in the Bundesliga and only managed to beat Rangers 1-0 at home thanks to a late effort from defender Angelino.

James Tavernier to Score

Rangers' captain, James Tavernier, top scores in the Europa League for the hosts this season with 6-goals, four of which have come from the penalty spot. With Morelos out injured, we're backing Tavernier to find the back of the net against RB Leipzig via either another penalty or perhaps one of his trademark free-kicks. The 30-year-old English wing-back has also notched 7 league goals for Rangers this season and scored twice against Braga at Ibrox in the quarter-finals.
