Dundee vs Rangers

, KO: 20:00 Apr 10, 2024, Dens Park

RANGERS emerged from the chaos of Sunday's Old Firm derby with a share of the spoils and now have the chance to move back above Celtic at the SPFL Premiership summit with a victory in Dundee.

Both myself and our man Mark fancied Gers to claim a huge win over the Hoops in front of a partisan crowd at the weekend but Philippe Clement's men found themselves 2-0 down at half-time after being totally outplayed by their rivals.

A hugely controversial VAR penalty award got the Ibrox side back in business and they duly levelled only for Celtic to race back up the park and claim a 3-2 lead to silence the home crowd once more.

Rabbi Matondo's stunner in injury-time stopped the champions from opening up a four-point lead and Rangers will now be looking to go top when they play their game in hand at Dens Park.

A waterlogged pitch caused this match to be postponed before the international break and it could be in danger again with more heavy rain forecast for midweek in Tayside.

Dens Park had to pass two late pitch inspections on Saturday before Dundee's game with Motherwell went ahead and the Dark Blues blew a 2-0 lead as Well roared back to claim a massive three points.

That stopped Dundee from sealing their place in the top six and a three-way fight with the Steelmen and Hibs for the final slot will ensue this weekend if Tony Docherty's side lose once more to Rangers.

But the pitch could be a great leveller and Docherty will be determined to guarantee a place in the top half of the table by springing a shock against Gers.

How the bookies view it

It's no great surprise to see Rangers as heavy favourites and their best price is just 3/10 at Coral. Dundee are as big as 9/1 with Betfair while the draw pays 19/4 at Bet365.

Recent head to head

Rangers have won their last eight games against Dundee, including a 5-0 battering when they last came to Dens Park in November. The Dark Blues last beat the Ibrox giants in 2017, with Mark O'Hara's double sealing a 2-1 win at Dens.

Players to watch

Rangers will need to go a bit more direct due to the poor pitch and Cyriel Dessers will be a key man up top with his physicality. The striker is 6/5 with Bet365 for anytime scorer and that looks decent value.

Amadou Bakayoko is the focal point up front for Dundee and will fancy his chances against a defence that looked ropey against Celtic on Sunday. The big striker is 11/2 with William Hill to add to his six-goal tally this term.

Anything else catch the eye?

When a pitch is in such poor condition it usually leads to a lack of goalmouth action but that wasn't the case on Saturday, with Dens seeing a five-goal thriller. I've a feeling this match will be less open though as Dundee will probably try to frustrate the title-chasers. That makes a Rangers win with under 3.5 goals worth a punt at 13/10 with BoyleSports.

Dundee's clash with Motherwell produced 14 corners in total so that's another market worth a look. Over 11.5 corners pays 23/20 with BetVictor while Rangers -4 in that handicap is priced 11/10 at Bet365.
