Rangers vs Aris Limassol Preview


Given their contrasting home and away records, Rangers should be backed to maintain their winning form at Ibrox.

I´m taking a Rangers victory with at least three goals scored in a likely competitive contest in Glasgow. 

  • Rangers have won 7 of their last 8 home matches (Europa League)
  • Rangers have seen over 2.5 goals in 4 of their last 5 home matches (Europa League)
  • Rangers have seen over 2.5 goals in 7 of their last 8 victories
  • Aris Limassol have seen over 2.5 goals in 5 of their last 6 matches (Europa League)
  • Aris Limassol have seen over 2.5 goals in their last 5 away matches (European competitions)
  • Aris Limassol have lost 4 of their last 6 matches (Europa League)

Head to Head


Aris Limassol scored a surprise 2-1 win when these sides met in their only previous meeting in Cyprus earlier in the group phase. 

Rangers Form


Rangers excellent five-game winning run was brought to a halt when they were held to a 1-1 draw at Aberdeen on Sunday. A 93rd-minute penalty from skipper James Tavernier was enough to rescue a point for the Gers.

Still unbeaten under Belgian boss Phillipe Clement, the Gers remain eight points behind great rivals Celtic in the Scottish Premiership.

In the Europa League, the Gers sit second in the section after a vital win against Sparta Prague at Ibrox three weeks ago. Rangers have an excellent home record in this competition, with just three defeats in 33 matches since 2017 (W24, D6, L3). 

Rangers Team News


Rangers have no new injury issues after Sunday´s hard-fought draw in Aberdeen. Clement could make one or two changes to his selection, with Rabbi Matondo and John Souttar in contention for a return to the first XI.

Injured trio Ben Davies, Kemar Roofe, and Nico Raskin are all likely to remain unavailable.

Aris Limassol Form


Aris arrive in Glasgow boosted by a vital 1-0 win against title-rivals APOEL in the Cypriot First Division on Saturday. The Light Brigade now lead APOEL at the top of the division on goal difference.

Aleksey Shpilevskiy's men had suffered back-to-back 4-1 road losses at Real Betis and Karmiotissa prior to last weekend´s narrow victory. Unfortunately, Aris's domestic success has not replicated to their Europa League form, with three of four group-stage fixtures ending in defeat.

Away from Cyprus, Aris have conceded nine goals in three previous defeats in the Europa League.

Aris Limassol Team News


Shpilevskiy is likely to keep faith with the same XI that claimed three vital domestic points on Saturday. Senegalese forward Yannick Gomis is unlikely to feature after he missed the weekend win against APOEL. 

Verdict

A high-scoring home win seems the likeliest outcome on Thursday with Rangers so strong at Ibrox.

I´m taking the Gers to win with over 2.5 goals in what should prove an entertaining Europa League fixture in Glasgow.
