Rangers vs Shkupi – Europa League
In one of the last matches to be played on this day of the match round with regard to the qualifying round of the first round of the Europa League 2018/2019 in the first leg, in this match on Thursday, in Glasgow, in the Ibrox Stadium, the Rangers team, and the Shkupi team, who had never played a game together.
The local formation enters this starting match of the season, the first played in official terms, having finished last season in a position to access the pre-qualifying phases for the group stage of the Europa League, more precisely in the 3rd position of the Scottish Premier League, which is another step in the recovery of Rangers in terms of their status in Scotland and Europe itself, considering that it is one of the most historic football teams in the Old Continent.
As for the visiting team, coming from Macedonia, enter this is their first official meeting of the season, so there is still no match played in this season that begins, as well as his opponent in this match and this tie. Last season, the team finished in the 4th position of the Macedonian championship, making a very interesting final stretch, having scored 4 consecutive wins and an excellent record in offensive terms.
Prediction Rangers vs Shkupi:
In what will be the first game of Steven Gerrard as coach of Rangers, it will be interesting to realize the impact of the former Liverpool midfielder in the Scottish formation, who will still have, theoretically, a lower opponent in this tie of the Europa League.
Although it is difficult to theorize about what can happen, taking into account this factor, I believe that the Scottish team’s highest quality will be enough for the team to achieve a triumph in this match, namely at the end of the first half.
Prediction of the Day: Rangers AH-1 HT
