A Closer Look
Keep within the aggregate score and the hosts will progress to the next round where they will take part in a final play-off for a place in the group stages of the competition. That’s where things get serious and the prize money goes up a few notches.
If you’re looking for proof of what a talented football manager Steven Gerrard is you need look no further than last Thursday’s match involving these two. FC Midtjylland is a talented side who were expected to make home advantage count and put themselves in the driving seat for a play-off berth, but the match didn’t follow the script. Rangers remained patient, hunted the ball down in packs and forced FC Midtjylland off their stride.
Rangers Want to See it Out
After feeling their way into the game, it was then time for the teddy bears to have a go themselves and they did just that to great effect. Alfredo Morelos broke the deadlock on 43 minutes and that was followed by goals for Aribo and Katic. Rangers left a three-goal lead slip to 3-2 in the blink of an eye but got that all-important fourth through Arfield on 70 minutes.
Rangers proved a point in the first leg and they are expected to go through with a home win and a decent aggregate score against a strong opponent. The locals are 13/20 at Unibet, an away win is 15/4 with the same firm and the draw stands out at 3/1. Gerrard will be more than happy to see this one out.
