Rangers – Malmo
One of the more interesting rematches in the third round of Champions League qualifiers is the Rangers vs Malmo duel, especially after Malmo won the first leg 2-1. After a history season in which they’ve won the title in Scotland by leaving their fierce rivals Celtic 25 points behind them, Rangers already lost one game in the first two rounds of the new season. It seems that Rangers still has some work to do before they can get back into their form of last season.
The Swedish champions have started the Champions League Qualifications from the first round, which means that they’ve already eliminated a couple of teams to reach this stage. They’ve beaten Riga 2-1 on aggregate and HJK 4-3 on aggregate. In addition to this, the Swedish league is already half-way through and Malmo is currently tied for the first place with Djurgarden, so they are obviously in great form at the moment.
After they lost the first leg 2-1 to Malmo, Rangers has to put up a better showing in the second leg if they want to play in the Champions League this season – and we expect them to do so. Malmo is a good team and it won’t be easy, but our prediction is for Rangers to win since they have enough quality to see Malmo off and because they are playing at home.
