Rangers to lead at the interval

Rangers have been on fire lately, they’ve won four games in a row. It’s worth pointing out that Rangers tend to score first; they drew first blood in all of those four games. Due to their tendency to score the first goal, The Gers have been leading at half-time in most of their games; Rangers led at half-time in all of their last four games. In the same vein, Rangers tend to score first when they play against Dundee United; as they’ve done so in four of their last five encounters. Considering Rangers led at half-time in three of those five meetings, we should expect something similar today.

We’ll see a clean sheet

Dundee United have not scored a lot of goals recently; they failed to score in three of their last five games, registering just three goals in that stretch. Conversely, Dundee United have been really good defensively; they’ve not conceded a single goal in their last four games. On the other hand, although Rangers have not had much trouble scoring goals, they’ve been really solid defensively; the Gers have kept three clean sheets in their last four games. At least one side failed to score in all of Dundee United’s last five games, and in four of Rangers’ last five games; with this in mind, one of these teams should keep a clean sheet.

There will be goals

Rangers have been one of the highest scoring teams in the Premiership; only league leaders Celtic have scored more goals than Rangers this season. As a matter of fact, Rangers scored 14 goals in their last four games alone; that’s 3.5 goals per game on average. Due to their goal scoring ability, Rangers’ games tend to be on the high-scoring side; five of their last six games went above the 2.5 goal mark. Additionally, clashes between these teams have mostly been high-scoring; seven of their last nine encounters went over 2.5. On that note, we should expect a few goals in this game.
