Draw at full-time
We are expecting a tough duel in this fixture. After failing to secure victory in the first Group A match, the struggle for the second spot remains open. These teams haven’t lost in their last three games. They have both secured 2W and 1D in the last three matches. We are settling for a draw at full-time.
Our second pick for this match is few goals at full-time. A tough duel between Sparta Prague and Rangers should yield only a few goals at full-time. The hosts have one clean sheet in the last three games while Rangers has two clean sheets in as many matches.
Both teams to score
We are also tipping goals on both sides of the pitch. These teams have found the net in all their last three games after the first Europa League game. A good scoring form on both sides informs our third pick for this game.
Match Review: Sparta Prague and Rangers Lock Horns for the First Time in Europa League
This will be the first meeting between Sparta Prague and Rangers. The fact that these teams meet for the first time means this game is a must-watch as both sides fight for the playoff spots in Group A. Find out what we think about this game in our team preview below.
Sparta Prague earned a point in the first Group A fixture. The game ended 0-0 and so the big question is can they make the most of home advantage in the second group A game? The hosts have improved tremendously since their first Europa League game, securing 2W and 1D. Moreover, Sparta Prague is unbeaten in the last four matches and look to keep the good run going when they host Rangers in the second match of Group A. With good form, we expect the hosts to stage a fight for points in this game.
Rangers have picked up form since losing 2-0 to Lyon in the first match of Group A in the Europa League tournament. They have now bagged 2W and 1D after the first Europa League match. The visitors come to this game with back to back victories, all of which came with a clean sheet. We expect Rangers to put in a shift to earn at least a point in the second game of the tournament.
