Dundee FC vs Rangers Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Dundee were able to stop the rot with a goalless draw against Kilmarnock during the weekend. Despite being the home team, Dundee had to hang on towards the end after Darren O’Dea’s second yellow card in the 85th minute. Despite being the away team, Kilmarnock had the best chances in the game with Lee Erwin failing to convert in a one-on-one with goalkeeper Parish. Eamonn Brophy missed a free header late on in the game. Rangers suffered the first loss under interim boss Graeme Murty after losing 2-0 against Hamilton. David Templeton took advantage of a Hamilton mistake with the 47th minute goal, while Darren Lyon made the game safe with an 81st minute goal. Alexander Gogic was sent off deep into injury time. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Despite getting a draw in the recent home game, it would be difficult to back Dundee in this match. Rangers suffered a loss against Hamilton but the team did play reasonably well before conceding the first goal. Rangers have been able to get wins in four out of the last five meetings against Dundee. In these matches, Rangers have scored more than 2.5 goals on two occasions. They come to the game with decent scoring form – even after drawing a blank against Hamilton. Dundee’s poor defence is unlikely to get a clean sheet like they did against Kilmarnock. I would go with Rangers to score over 1.5 goals. Rangers have been winning at half-time and full-time in three out of the last five games against Dundee, who have also been in a losing position at both halves in three out of the last four league matches. I would go with Rangers to win at half-time and full-time.

Dundee FC Preview

Dundee may have been able to prevent a run of five consecutive losses turning into a sixth consecutive defeat with the draw against Kilmarnock, but it is a game that produced a mediocre performance at the very best. It may not provide Dundee with confidence about taking on the upcoming matches. This is especially true with Dundee up against Rangers and Aberdeen into out of the next three Scottish Premier League matches. The Dundee outfit still remains as one of the worst going forward with only 13 goals – only Kilmarnock have scored fewer (11). AJ Leitch-Smith remains the top scorer at Dundee with four goals in 10 games.

Dundee FC Team News

Scott Bain is suspended for the game. Besides the goalkeeper, Dundee have a fully fit squad for the game.

Rangers Preview

Rangers may have lost the first game under Graeme Murty, but the team did come in with a performance that could have ended in a third consecutive victory. Yet, it will not prevent the club from continuing their pursuit of a new manager. Candidates like Alex McLeish and former Australia boss Ange Postecoglou have been speculated as candidates. Rangers may continue to struggle for consistent results until a permanent appointment is made. It may significantly hurt the chances of the team qualifying for Europe, as they have already fallen three points behind second placed Aberdeen.

Rangers Team News

Rangers have a fully fit squad available for the match.
