Glasgow Rangers vs Kilmarnock Betting Tips 20/02/2019

Not only the English FA Cup has the peculiarity that in a draw no extension and possibly a penalty shootout follows, but a replay with exchanged home rights. This is also the case north of the Scottish border. In the fifth FA Cup round Glasgow Rangers are against Kilmarnock loud odds of all bookmakers house-high favorite on a progress on Wednesday evening in the domestic Ibrox Stadium. Even though Kilmarnock has proven to be hard to beat for the Rangers in recent duels. Kilmarnock lost none of the past three competitive games against the “Gers” (1-2-0).

Today’s Betting Tips Glasgow Rangers vs Kilmarnock

The Rangers have played zero in six of the last ten league games and have won seven of their last 13 competitive games (7-5-1). The squad is also much stronger than Killie’s. The only bankruptcy was after the winter break just against Kilmarnock. Nevertheless, on Wednesday evening at Glasgow Rangers against Kilmarnock a tip on the “Gers” recommended. The Rangers are likely to have foam after the unlucky result in the first clash of the fifth round, especially due to the rough gait of the Killies. For the Rangers it is a crucial game, because the last realistic title chance remains in the FA Cup. For the winner of Wednesday, waiting in the quarter-finals on March 3, an away game in Aberdeen.

The most important persona anticipates: Alfredo Morelos may run despite his three-game suspension on Wednesday evening in Ibrox against Kilmarnock. This is possible because the last of the games of the suspension in the Premiership must be served. Morelos is “free” for the cup repeat game. Good news for Steven Gerrards Glasgow Rangers, who are against Kilmarnock according to odds of bookie favorite on a progress. The Colombian with 23 goals (including 15 in the league) by far the most important player of the “Gers”. How crucial Morelos is is always apparent when he is not allowed to participate. Two weeks ago in Aberdeen, he flew after his brace for the fourth time this season off the pitch. Without Morelos, both in the FA Cup match in Kilmarnock, as well as on Saturday at home against St. Johnstone were only enough to score two goalless draws. The championship should therefore go this season to the hated rival Celtic and this for the eighth time in a row. The Rangers are now eight points behind. With two remaining Old Firms not impossible to catch up, but it is not realistic.

Morelo’s undisciplinedness is also very much to blame for that. Without the 22-year-old Rangers won only one of six games. Among other things, the Rangers eliminated without the Colombians in the League Cup semi-final. This makes it hard to realize Gerrard’s swaggering title winnings. If you take the games in the league against Dundee, St Johnstone or Aberdeen, you come up with nine, the Rangers could have more in the account and Scotland would actually have a real duel for the championship. On Wednesday, Morelos is fortunately from Rangers point of view of the party. Kilmarnock will try to provoke the hothead. If this remains calm, according to our prediction, there is nothing to prevent the Glasgow Rangers from advancing against Kilmarnock. Nor in this case between the Rangers and Kilmarnock Glasgow nothing against a tip on over 2.5 goals. Definitely not allowed to participate in the core keeper Allan McGregor, who must serve a subsequently imposed against him lock. Jamie Murphy and Graham Dorran are long-term injured. Behind Scott Arfield and Ryan Jack is a question mark, as both are struck.

Glasgow Rangers vs Kilmarnock Betting Tips

Kilmarnock – Statistics & Current Form

Kilmarnock sold himself dearly last Sunday and nearly got a countable count against an Old Firm team. But Celtic captain Scott Brown crashed Killie into the valley of tears at minute 90 and put “green-white” on the driver’s seat in the championship race at the same time. Kilmarnock has nothing to do with the title fight this season, even though it looked like that after the victory for the start of the second half of the season against the Rangers. The East Ayrshire club is now in fourth place, 14 points behind Celtic. In the fight for the Europa League, however, Kilmarnock continues to mix vigorously. This is thanks to the club’s coach Steve Clark, who has been doing very little since October 2017 and has significantly increased the average attendance. The Scottish champion of 1965 has been waiting for a title since 2012, when Killie won the League Cup.

The last of three FA Cup triumphs is already 21 years back. The chance of a cup victory this season would not be so bad if Killie can take the high away goal at Ibrox on Wednesday night. However, according to our prediction Glasgow Rangers vs. Kilmarnock will not look that up, though the Clark disciples will make it difficult for the favorites as always. Clark relies on automatisms and a strong defense. At 41, Clark took together with Aberdeen before the least change in the starting eleven. The 26 goals are beaten in the league only by the two Old Firm Team Celtic (16 goals) and Rangers (20 goals) undercut. The fact that Kilmarnock is expected to win five games without a win (0-3-2) is shown by a look at the 2018 calendar, when no other team scored more points than Killie. Accordingly, at Glasgow Rangers vs Kilmarnock a tip on “over 2.5 goals” quite realistic. Ex-Rangers player Kirk Broadfoot is missing due to a red-lock. For Youssouf Mulumbu is of the party, which was not eligible to play as a Celtic player against the “Bhoys”.

Best goalscorers in the Premiership:

  • 9 goals: Eamonn Brophy
  • 8 goals: Greg Stewart
  • 4 goals: Jordan Jones

Expected formation of Kilmarnock:

  • Bachmann; Taylor, Findlay, Bruce, O’Donnell; Mulumbu, Dicker, Power; Jones, McAleny, Burke
  • Coach: Steve Clark

Last games by Kilmarnock:

  • 17.02.2019 – Kilmarnock vs. Celtic Glasgow 0: 1 (Premiership)
  • 09.02.2019 – Kilmarnock vs. Glasgow Rangers 0: 0 (FA Cup)
  • 06.02.2019 – Dundee Vs. Kilmarnock 2: 2 (Premiership)
  • 01.02.2019 – Kilmarnock vs. Heart of Midlothian 1: 2 (Premiership)
  • 26.01.2019 – Aberdeen Vs. Kilmarnock 0: 0 (Premiership)
