St Josephs – Ballyroan Abbey Match Prediction | 25-08-2019

The minnows defeated nine-man Prishtina in previous round, but they face an uphill task in the two-legged tie against Glasgow Rangers. It has to be noted that the two teams meet for the first time ever in European competitions. Anyhow, former Liverpool legend Steven Gerard is doing a great job with the Gers and we predict that they are going to prove their worth on the field.

There are some intriguing new arrivals such asSteven Davis, Joe Aribo and Filip Helander into the squad and theyll look to impress the Ibrox faithful in their sides first competitive home game of the season here and a win should be a formality at odds of 66/1 withCoral. Preparation has been excellent so far, with thumping friendly victories over both Oxford United and Olympique de Marseille either side of that first leg in Gibraltar.

The first leg clash between the two sides was certainly a one-sided affair in terms of the number of attempts on goal, with the Mirel Josas men managing five times the number of goal attempts than what their opponents could accomplish. The squad certainly made their presence felt in the attacking third, and received a total of twelve corner kicks in that game, and managed to make the goalkeeper work on five occasions.

Celtic are considered the clubs biggest rivals and there have always been fireworks when the two teams meet in the Old Firm derby. Glasgow Rangers defeated Dynamo Moscow in the final of the competition, with the likes of Stein and Johnston (two goals) scoring for the Scottish side. The likes of Paul Gascoigne, David Weir, Stefan Klos, Chris Boyd, Ian Durrant and Kenny Miller are some of Rangers former notable players.

After receiving FIFA member status, the national team have started to compete and even managed a handful of points in the UEFA Nations League last term. Domestically, the game remains amateur, hence why those that qualify for continental competitions rarely manage to make it beyond the first round or two of qualifying. Football in Gibraltar has come on leaps and bounds in the last few years.

Glasgow Rangers were founded back in 1872 and they have been playing an important role in the Scottish top flight ever since. Glasgow Rangers are one of the two synonyms for Scottish Football. The Gers won their 54th Scottish Premier League title in the 2010/2011 season, but winning of European Cup Winners Cup trophy in 1972 is considered the clubs biggest success.

Our prediction for this Europa League match:

This year, theyll be hoping for more success on the continent as they also look to push on and challenge Celtic domestically. The Glaswegian outfit remained unbeaten in their eight home fixtures in the competition last term and they were desperately unlucky to not qualify from the group stages. The Europa League provided some of the more memorable moments for the Gers during their first season under the guidance of Steven Gerrard.
