Rangers to win the game

Rangers have looked solid in the last few weeks and it would take a lot of effort from the French outfit to get something out of this match. Lyon will have some kind of nervousness as they make their return to European competitions. The team has picked up back-to-back wins in the league, but it was not until they went through a poor start to the Ligue 1 campaign.

Total goals over 2.5

Out of the last five matches involving Rangers in all competitions, just two games have produced more than 2.5 goals. However, Lyon come into this match with a strong scoring form with players like Mousa Dembele in excellent nick. Lyon have been involved in high-scoring matches in three out of the last four.

Mousa Dembele to score anytime

Despite Lyon’s indifferent start, Mousa Dembele has been in excellent form since making the switch back to the French club. He has come up with four goals in his five appearances so far. The 25-year-old has also scored these four goals in the last three matches. His excellent form is a strong reason to back goals from the striker.
