⚽️ Sparta Prague 🇨🇿 vs Rangers 🏴
🏆 Europa League
⏰ Thursday 26th October, 17:45
Rangers travel to the Czech capital to take on reigning Czech champions Sparta Prague at the Letná Stadium in a fixture that I am keen to back the hosts to continue their extraordinary scoring form at home this season.
Brian Priske’s hosts began their Europa League campaign with a 3-2 success at home to Cypriot champions Aris Limassol, but despite taking an early lead in Andalusia, failed to make it two wins from two as they fell to a 2-1 defeat to Manuel Pellegrini’s Real Betis. The Rudí have made a strong defence of their first Czechia First League crown since 2014 by winning 10 of their opening 12 matches in the league this season (W10-D2-L0) – including each of their opening six on home soil – to currently sit two points clear of city-rivals Slavia Prague at the top of the table.
Rangers made the perfect start to their Europa League campaign as they secured a 1-0 victory at home to La Liga side Real Betis, but they failed to back that up as they fell to an embarrassing 2-1 defeat away in Limassol against Aris. It’s also been a poor start to the domestic campaign for The Gers, as they currently sit seven points behind bitter-rivals Celtic, but they head into this off the back of a 4-0 victory at home to Hibs in what was manager Phillipe Clement’s first match in charge of the club.
Bet of the Day
Sparta Prague have scored an eye-catching 31 goals across their opening nine matches at home in all competitions this term, with 10 (32%) of them coming in their three European fixtures. The reigning Czech champions have scored two or more goals in all nine of their home fixtures in all competitions this season – even scoring three or more in seven (78%) of them – and I’m backing them to bag another brace at home against a Rangers backline that’s registered a solitary clean sheet across their previous 15 European ties on their travels, shipping multiple goals in five of their last six.
