RANGERS have performed well in Europe this season – but tonight could be their biggest test.
Bigger even than facing Man United at Old Trafford where they battled to a 0-0 draw.
Walter Smith's men now face the might of Valencia and there is no doubt they are one of the best sides in the tournament despite the summer loss of David Villa and David Silva.
The Spaniards have proved they can compete with Barcelona and Real Madrid and I expect them to clinch a third successive victory at Ibrox.
Smith will go with his tried and trusted one-up front formation but Valencia could be too good to keep out.
Barcelona didn't manage it in the Nou Camp on Saturday night although they eventually won 2-1.
Rangers are a biggest 11-4 with Chandler and that seems about right. Valencia are 11-10 at Coral with the draw paying 12-5 at Skybet.
On William Hill's double chance you can have Valencia or draw at 3-10 while Rangers or draw is 8-13.
Gers haven't conceded in two Champions League outings and are 11-5 with Hills to keep a third clean sheet while Valencia are 2-1 to win to nil.
The Ibrox men are 11-8 with Hills not to score and 11-8 to net exactly one – which they did in two previous home defeats to the Spaniards.
Naisy has scored in his last three Rangers games and also netted against Spain. He is 12-1 at bet365 to score first and 4-1 with the same firm at any time.
Miller or Naismith to score first pays 3-1 with Hills and Miller and Naismith to score at any time pays 10-1.
Valencia's dangermen are all over the pitch but they're likely to go with Aritz Aduriz and Juan Mata up front.
I'm on Aduriz at 6-1 with Coral to break the deadlock while Mata is 9-1 with Chandler.
The Ibrox men are 2-1 with Hills to reach the last 16, 4-11 to fail and 20-1 not to lsoe a game in Group G.
Out-of-sorts United face the rookie Turks at home and despite their poor domestic form I can't see anything but a win.
Spurs continue their Champions League adventure in the San Siro and they could surprise Rafael Benitez's Inter Milan.
The Italians are hot favourites at 3-4 with boylesports but Spurs (9-2, Skybet) look worth a gamble at 3-1 with Chandler on the draw no bet market.
Lyon should beat poor travellers Benfica and take Schalke to recover from their weekend Bundesliga setback at home to Stuttgart by beating Hapoel at home.
- Spurs draw no bet (3-1, Chandler)
- Rangers 1, Valencia 2 (17-2, Skybet)
