Prediction and betting tips
Liverpool continued their poor start to the season as they lost their last league game against Arsenal. The Reds are 10th in the league after nine games as they look to find their feet. Rangers are doing well in the league but they are struggling in the Champions League. They have lost their first three games in the Champions League and will be looking to bounce back against Liverpool to snatch at least a point. With Liverpool’s poor start to the season, Rangers will feel they can get something from the game as they suffered a defeat in the away fixture. I predict a draw with no bet on the Rangers.
Rangers have scored a goal in two of their last three games in all competitions. Liverpool have scored a goal in five of their last five games. Both teams are very dangerous in front of the goal. Rangers have scored 22 goals in the league while Liverpool have scored 120 goals in the league. I predict both teams will score.

Odds: 9.00 (+800 American; 8/1 Fractional)
