Hearts vs Rangers Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Hearts slipped back into losing ways after a 1-0 defeat against Hibernian at the Easter Road stadium. The game witnessed a third minute goal from Simon Murray, and it proved to be the difference between the two clubs over the entire 90 minutes. Kyle Lafferty came the closest to scoring for Hearts. Rangers dropped more points in the SPL 2017-18 season after a 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock. Jason Holt scored just before half-time to give Rangers a lead, but there was late drama in the game. Ryan Jack was sent off in the fourth minute of injury time and Rangers’ Candeias went on to miss a penalty. Kilmarnock produced a stunning comeback as Sam Burke came up with a 95th minute goal to secure a point for Kilmarnock.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Hearts have managed two wins in the last five games against Rangers and both these victories have been at home. Rangers have also managed to pick up a similar number of wins and they have only been at the Ibrox stadium. However, Rangers come into the game on the back of a strong away form, as the club have shown signs of struggling at home. I would go with a victory for Rangers. Rangers have scored more than 2.5 goals in four out of the last five away matches, and they come into this game after having scored a remarkable 14 in the five away matches this season. Hearts have played just two matches at home, but the team has averaged a goal per game at the back. I would go with Rangers to score over 1.5 goals.

Rangers win – 17/20

Hearts Preview

Hearts failed to make it into the top six after losing against Hibernian on the road. A third defeat in nine away games will not be cause for concern, as the club are expected to make up places with a string of home games – which will begin with the game against Rangers. Hearts have shown much improved form since Levein was appointed as the new manager in place of Ian Castro. Kyle Lafferty is the leading scorer at the club with four goals in 10 games, and he has scored one more than last season’s leading scorer – Esmael Goncalves.

Hearts Team News

Aaron Hughes (knee), Don Cowie (calf), and Arnaud Djoum (ligament) are the players unavailable for Hearts manager Craig Levein coming into the match.

Rangers Preview

Rangers continue to struggle in the SPL after dropping out of the top four following the midweek results. The club were expected to make a push for the league title this season, but manager Pedro Caixinha has so far been able to lead his team to a string of inconsistent results. Rangers have fallen a whopping eight points behind Celtic and they may have to be bid adieu to the title even if it is early days in the campaign. Rangers have been unable to assert their superiority in the game due to their struggles at the back. The team has conceded at a more than a goal per game this season. Alfredo Morelos remains the leading scorer at the club with six in 10 appearance

Rangers Team News

Rangers will be without Lee Wallace (groin) due to injury.
