Rangers to record another important win

Rangers welcome Hearts to Ibrox on Saturday in what will likely prove a hard fought encounter. We fancy Rangers to win it though. Hearts have been in great form with just one loss in their last 10 in all competitions but Rangers showed that they know how to get the job done last time out against Hibs; they’re another strong side. A few doubts had started to creep in around Rangers before that Hibs game but they still came back from 1-0 down to collect maximum points. Yes, some will point to the red card but that doesn’t always make things easier. Rangers found a way. When the chips are down they always do, which is why they’ll win again here.

Don’t expect goals

Our next prediction for Rangers vs Hearts is that the game will see fewer than three goals. Rangers have only gone over the 2.5 mark in one of their last five games with their game average sitting at 1.8 across that period. Hearts’ stats read slightly higher with two of five going over 2.5 but with a game average of 2.2 goals both teams latest form points to a low scoring match. The last meeting between the pair ended south of the 2.5 cut off too.

Someone will fail to score

Although we fancy Rangers to win this match, our third and final prediction is backing at least one side not to score. If we’re honest, the best chance Hearts have of getting a result is to frustrate Rangers. After all, Hearts have kept four clean sheets in their last five games. Rangers have kept a couple of clean sheets too with another one of their matches seeing them blank. That means Rangers have seen three of five end with a ‘nil’ in the score line. For Hearts, four of five have seen at least one side blank. Three of the last five head to heads have seen one side fail to score as well.

Rangers vs Hearts: Team Overview

Rangers

You can say Rangers don’t look as good as last season but still they sit top of the league having lost just once. They’re banging in goals as well; they’re the joint top scorers in the Premiership. The thing that makes them hard to stop is the way they can share the load; Kemar Roofe, Alfredo Morelos and Joe Aribo have all registered multiple goals already.

Hearts

We just mentioned that Rangers are the joint top scorers in the league; Hearts have scored the same amount and are just behind their hosts in the standings. Unlike Rangers, Hearts’ goals are coming through one key man; that’s Liam Boyce. He’s scored in each of his last three games.
