Expert analysis Glasgow Rangers
They could not believe their eyes in Scotland. When Rangers surprised the highly-favoured Dortmund in their living room, the mighty Signal-Iduna-Stadion, and took an early 2-0 lead in the 1st half, half the Scottish population’s jaws dropped.
Of course, they regularly beat Hibernians, St Mirren or Kilmarnock to nil at their own stadium. They have not conceded a goal in four home games, including the last Europa League game against Sparta Prague.
But Rangers must try to stop Dortmund’s furious attacks because the opponent is on a completely different level than the Rangers usually face. Against a team from one of the other top leagues, Olympique Lyon, they lost 0:2 at home in the Europa League.
The preparation for this game was also tough for Rangers. They only picked up one point against Dundee United. Surely they already thought about the match against Dortmund. But they lost important points in the eternal fight for the Scottish football crown against their rivals Celtic. Now they are 3 points behind Celtic.
Expert analysis Borussia Dortmund
Dortmund started as a favourite in the Europa League. Everyone expected a clear victory against Glasgow Rangers at the beginning. But it is fair to say that it was a washout. After only a short time, the score was 0:3 and in the end: Dortmund can consider themselves lucky to have lost only 2:4. Fortunately for Dortmund, the away goals rule no longer exists, which would have made qualification for the next round almost impossible.
But now BVB travels to Glasgow with theoretical chances and a lot of hope and Erling Haaland on the bench. To reach extra time, Dortmund needs a win with a two-goal difference. To qualify, Dortmund needs a win with a three-goal difference. Coach Marco Rose’s team is certainly motivated: On Sunday, they defeated Borussia Moenchengladbach 6:0.
But the victory against the other Borussia also had its downsides. Starting players Giovanni Reyna and Axel Zagadou were injured early in the game and will be out for the next few weeks. On the other hand, Dortmund can once again count on recovered Norwegian star striker Erling Harland. The Norwegian has an irrepressible will to win and can undermine any defence in the world with his speed, his force and his irrepressible hunger for goals. Even if he only comes off the bench, he can give Dortmund a big boost right away.
Of course, Glasgow will do everything to defend their two-goal lead. But Dortmund can then, on a good night, set off offensive fireworks until the kilt flies off the Scots.
Update: Finally the Norwegian did not travel to Scotland
Our betting tip for Glasgow Rangers against Borussia Dortmund
We are betting on a win for Borussia from Dortmund with a two-goal difference, which would mean that Dortmund will at least make it to extra time. But extra time or a penalty shootout are unpredictable events that sometimes require a little luck. But this bet is only for regular time.
And for all Dortmund’s offensive drive, there will also be scoring chances for the Scots. Therefore, Dortmund must score at least three goals to qualify for the next round. In this match, too, it makes sense to bet on more than 3 goals.
Dortmund can definitely score 3 goals on their opponent’s pitch. They showed that most recently against defensively strong Union Berlin. And they also scored exactly three goals against Hoffenheim, Frankfurt or this year’s Champions League participant Vfl Wolfsburg. They can do it too. And the level of Glasgow Rangers is certainly on a similar level to the aforementioned clubs, even though they overran Dortmund so mercilessly in the first leg.
Since it will definitely be a very competitive match, you can also expect a lot of yellow cards. We recommend betting 2+ cards for each team.
These are four possible outcomes. In Bet365 you can also combine all of these outcomes into one single bet within their Bet Builder. Do not stake too high – the game could go in a totally different direction as well if Dortmund does not score in 1st half.
