Rangers host Sparta Prague in a Europe League meeting at Ibrox on Thursday evening.
The Gers will be hoping for a more positive result than last time out when they drew 0-0 with the Czech outfit away from home. Back Rangers to beat Sparta Prague at 1/1 with bet365.
Leon Balogun’s Rangers message
Rangers kick off on Thursday sat 3rd in Group C with four points from three games. Sparta Prague, like Rangers, have won one, drawn one and lost one in Europe this term but sit in 2nd place due to them scoring more goals.
Should Rangers lose this week, their chances of making it into the knockout rounds will greatly diminish.
Ahead of the game, Leon Balogun has urged his side to have a fast start vs Sparta Prague:
“It’s going to be pretty similar to the last game,” Balogun said after Sunday’s cup semi-final win over Hearts.
“We just need to have a fast start. They’re coming to Ibrox, which is always a different place. If you continue to start games like that, I think the fans will be behind us quickly and then it’s quite intimidating for every team that comes to our living room.”
Rangers’ top goalscorer this term is Abdallah Sima with eight, and the Scottish outfit will be looking to him to cause Sparta problems this week. Back Sima to score anytime vs Sparta Prague at 9/4 with bet365.
