Rangers FC – Liverpool FC betting tip & odds comparison 12.10.2022
After losing three straight games in Group A, Rangers will be looking for any kind of positive result when they welcome Liverpool to the Ibrox on Wednesday evening.
The Reds have now steadied the ship after a woeful start to this season’s campaign, being in 2nd place behind Napoli, and will be looking to maintain or increase their three-point cushion over Ajax with a win here.

The gulf in quality between the Champions League and the Europa League couldn’t be more pronounced. Rangers’ last season’s Europa Cup runners-up have been played off the park in their return to the Champions League group stage after 12 years in the cold. The Gers have outclassed by Ajax, Napoli and Liverpool and sit at the rock bottom of Group A without a single point to their name.
Giovanni van Bronckhorst switched to a back five at Anfield last week but they were still torn to shreds and their defence opened up on several occasions with keeper Allan McGregor pulling a string of saves to at least keep the scoreline to a decent 2-0 in favor of Liverpool.
They won 4-0 at the weekend against St Mirren but they will be under no illusions as to the challenge Liverpool portends for them. Anything short of a win here will nevertheless condemn them to a quick exit from the bright lights of the premier European club football showpiece.
Like the hosts, Liverpool also went all the way to the final of European club football when they faced off and lost to European giants Real Madrid at the Saint-Denis’s Stade de France in Paris. They started off this season’s campaign on the wrong footing, losing 4-1 to Napoli but bounced back with back-to-back wins over Ajax and Rangers to keep their hopes of qualifying for the next phase alive.
The Reds have nevertheless looked like a pale shadow of themselves, for the most part, this season. Their struggles in the Premier League continued at the weekend when they fell to a 3-2 defeat to league leaders Arsenal. They twice fought back after falling behind but conceded a late penalty that Bukayo Saka converted to condemn them to more misery on the domestic front.
They will have their eyes fixed on the Napoli – Ajax game that precedes this one. A win for Napoli will certainly give them the impetus to extend the gap between them and the Amsterdam outfit to 6 points and put them in a great position to punch their ticket to the knockout rounds.

RANGERS VS LIVERPOOL PREDICTIONS
Unlike last week when Rangers opted to deploy a defensive approach that ultimately fell flat on its face, we expect them to throw caution to the wind and try and attack here. This could very well play into Liverpool’s hands who are likely to exploit any gaps the Gers will leave at the back. As such we expect a much more open game with plenty of goal-scoring opportunities either way. For the first of our betting tips today we are going for Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.57 with Cyberbet.
Despite Liverpool’s glaring defensive woes, they are still potent upfront. They asked a lot of questions of the Rangers’ keeper last week and he produced world-class saves to keep them at bay. We expect them to go all out yet again here. They often win lots of corners based on their style of playing with their fullbacks in the attack. We expect the same to replicate here. Betking App has priced Liverpool to get 7 corners @ 1.77 and we feel there is value in picking this as our final prediction for this game
