Rangers – Porto
Rangers hosts Porto at the Ibrox in a match from Group G of Europa League. Both teams are having 4 points won so far in this group, being two points behind the leader Young Boys. You can see why this game is important for both sides.
Two weeks ago Porto hosted the Scottish giants at the Estadio Do Dragao, but Rangers managers to secure a point after a 1-1 draw. Luis Diaz opened the score for the Portuguese side, but Affredo Morelos equalised for the Blues. Both goals were scored before the halftime break.
Depending on the result between Feyenoord and Young Boys in the other game in the group, a win at Ibrox could mean even topping the group for Rangers and Porto. It’s a pretty big motivation for both teams here.
How they are doing in their domestic leagues, though?
Last weekend Rangers recorded their 9th win in the Scottish Premiership, beating Ross County with 4-0 away from home. The midfielder Ryan Jack scored two goals for the Blues, while the Colombian target man Alfredo Morelos did the same. Right now Rangers are on par with the leader and champion Celtic, which is a good sign for the club’s chances of winning the Premiership title again.
In the same time Porto are moving well in the Portuguese Primera Liga, although they are currently second in the standings, being on 2 points behind the leader Benfica. Despite of this, having a record of 8 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss from 10 games played is a pretty good stat. In their last four matches in the Primeira Liga the Dragons have enjoyed four wins and only do one draw. In their last game Porto secured a 1-0 win at home against Desportivo Aves.
Just like it was at the Do Dragao two weeks ago, we expect a competitive game between Rangers and Porto at the Ibrox. These two teams are currently on par in this group, so the win is pretty important here, there’s no doubt about that.
