Dundee vs RangersScottish Premiership, KO: 15:00 Sep 25, 2021, Dens Park
RANGERS travel to Dens Park to face a goal-shy Dundee side after both teams have contrasting fortunes in the Premier Sports Cup in midweek.
While Steven Gerrard's men were cruising to a bloodless home win against Livingston, Dundee slumped to a 2-0 defeat to Tayside rivals St Johnstone, despite carving out plenty of chances and having a lot of the ball.
It would have been hugely frustrating for James McPake who has now watched his side go 367 minutes without a goal in a horror spell.
Leigh Griffiths was brought in to solve that problem and he should be an interesting watch on Saturday with the spotlight shining on the on-loan Celtic striker.
Rangers are yet to really fire yet and face a club who have historically given them problems down the years. But they will be the bedrock of plenty of folks' coupons on Saturday afternoon.
How the bookies view it
Recent head to head
The last meeting at Dens Park came in 2018 when a ten-man Dundee held Rangers to a 1-1 draw as seen below. In fact, Dundee have won two out of the last three meetings with Rangers with 2-1 victories.
Players to watch
As stated, all eyes will be on Griffiths and the former Scotland star has yet to score for Dundee. He'd absolutely love a goal here though and is 9/2 with Unibet to score anytime.
Alfredo Morelos is back fit again and netted in midweek against Livingston. Dundee tend not to defend set pieces too well and a poacher like the Colombian international could enjoy himself. He's 21/20 to score on Tayside with BetVictor.
Anything else catch the eye?
Dundee simply have to start taking some of the many chances they create or else another relegation dogfight will ensue. However, Rangers are due to give someone a walloping soon and they could exploit a Dundee side who are weak defensively.
It could be heaven-made for Morelos and you could take a chance on him scoring a double at 5/1 with BetVictor.
If Rangers do win this in style, the -1 on the handicap at 4/5 with McBookie is the closest you will get on anything approaching value given the prohibitive odds on the Ibrox side to win.
Dundee have won an astonishing 19 corners on their own in their last two home games and love a flag kick.If Rangers do go ahead early, the hosts are likely to give it a right go chasing the game. It's a massive 7/1 for them to win the most corners with bet365 against a side who only won five at home to Livingston in midweek.
