Ross County vs Rangers Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Ross County come on the back of a 2-0 loss against Motherwell, as the club struggle to find form even in 2018. Just when it seemed that Ross County were heading into the break with a 0-0 score, Harry Souttar’s own goal provided Motherwell with a decisive lead. Curtis Main scored just two minutes into the second-half to put the game beyond doubt. Rangers produced a brilliant performance to pick up a 2-0 victory over Aberdeen. Alfredo Morelos converted from a fine cross in the 32nd minute, while James Tavernier did not miss from the spot in the 80th minute.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Rangers have been able to win the last two games against Ross County. Despite struggling for form, Ross County are expected to put up a fight and this will be a low scoring match. The last three league matches involving Rangers have all produced under 2.5 goals, while it is the same case with Ross County. I would back under 2.5 goals in this game.

Alfredo Morelos has been in fine form and has just been able to get his 11th goal of the season. The forward has scored three goals in his last two games against Ross County. He has also failed to score only twice in his last six games. On the basis of this form, I would choose Alfredo Morelos to score anytime.

Ross County Preview

Ross County are waiting for their first victory in all competitions since the 3-2 success over Motherwell back in November. Since then, the club has managed only three points. It is not a surprise that they are starting to find themselves cut adrift at the bottom, as even the likes of Partick Thistle have managed a couple of key victories in recent times. Owen Coyle was able to cause an instant reaction at the club, but the former Bolton manager is now facing an uncertain time at the club. Ross County can at least look forward to a run of three home games in the next four. Craig Curran is the top scorer at Ross County with just five goals in 21 games.

Ross County Team News

Ross County manager Owen Coyle does not have injury or suspension worries coming into the game.

Rangers Preview

Rangers are looking odds-on to cement their place in the second spot of the Scottish Premier League, as they have been displaying far greater levels of consistency than their main rivals Aberdeen. Since the appointment of Graeme Murty on an interim basis, results have been extremely good. The task for the club will now be to build an advantage over Aberdeen who are level on points. Furthermore, the team will be making a bid to reduce the 11-point deficit to Celtic. Alfredo Morelos went through a period of drought midway through the campaign, but he is now up to 11 goals for the campaign.

Rangers Team News

Rangers manager Graeme Murty will be without Kenny Miller (Achilles tendon), Graham Dorrans (ankle), and Lee Wallace (groin) due to injury.
