Rangers vs Young Boys Match Preview

leaguelane.com, 10 December 2019, 19:09

These teams are separated by a single point on the table, and despite the apparent positions in standings, the victor of this game will find a place in the knockouts. Likely, a tough fixture is about to unravel this Thursday at the Ibrox Stadium.

Rangers vs BSC Young Boys Head-to-head (h2h)

The reverse fixture ended in a win for Young Boys, at their home, with a 2-1 scoreline.

The encounters before that had come in 1977, in the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup. Then Rangers progressed with a 3-2 aggregate score over two legs.

Rangers vs BSC Young Boys Prediction

Rangers were held to a 2-2 draw the fifth match-day in the Europa League. They did hold a 1-2 lead in the 65th minute, but the hosts managed to equalize in the 68th.

Meanwhile, Young Boys led 1-0 at home for almost the whole of the fixture the previous game week in the competition. They were hosting Porto, and were inches away from a very valuable three points. However, Porto managed to score two goals in quick succession, in the final quarter hour to secure the victory.

This Thursday, a victory is virtually mandatory for both to progress. They are separated by one point in the table, and this will surely raise the competitive spirit of the match.

However, the home advantage for Rangers could tip scales in their favor. Consider that Rangers were unbeaten in 12 of their previous 13 game weeks, and at home, the squad recorded wins in 20 of their prior 23 appearances.

On the other hand, the Young Boys lost two of their preceding three match-ups, and were winless in four of their last six. On the road, they could manage a total of three wins from their prior ten trips.

Taking these factors into consideration, the game is building up to end in a win for the hosts, Rangers.

Adding on though, the fact this is the final match-day will definitely have a say in the proceedings during the ninety minutes. For example, Young Boys are in search for a win, and any other result will do them no good.

They are surely on the back foot, but if the team concedes, they no longer have anything to be concerned about, and will release waves after waves of attack to find the back of the net. Couple this observation with the fact that they had won the reverse leg with a 2-1 scoreline, and thus BTTS emerges as a valuable option this Thursday.
