The match

Glasgow Rangers have a mountain to climb if they want to reach the Champions League play-off round. They host Union Saint-Gilloise in the second leg of this third qualifying round tie but trail 2-0. The winners of this match face either PSV or Monaco (level at 1-1 after the first leg) for a place in the group stages. Defeat means they go into the Europa League group stage. Rangers reached the final of that competition last season but they'd love to stay in the Champions League. A goal in each half in Belgium has put that in doubt though. Rangers are unbeaten in their last six home European matches but including penalties have now lost their last five away games. They have started their Scottish Premiership season with two wins. Their last 19 home games in all competitions has seen just one defeat to Celtic.

Union Saint-Gilloise are playing only their second season in European football. The last time was in the 1964/65 season when losing on aggregate 2-0 to Juventus in the Inter City Fairs Cup (now the Europa League). They are finally back after finishing runners-up last season in the Belgian Jupiler League.  This season hasn't started so well win four points from three games. The weekend saw them lose 3-0 at Mechelen, leaving them 11th in the table. Only one of their last five away competitive games has been won. Back Rangers to win this but it might not be by the margin needed to keep them in the Champions League.

Key Statistics

  • Rangers have only lost one of their last 19 home games.
  • Union have one win in their last five away matches.
  • Rangers are unbeaten in their last six home European games.

The bet of our experts

Rangers have made a good start to their domestic season but again away form in Europe has let them down. They trail 2-0 after the first leg and could well be on their way back to the Europa League. Home form is strong though and Union have barely any European experience. Back Rangers to win this.
