Rangers vs Lyon Shots on Target Betting
Plenty to suggest this should be a pretty entertaining match, especially in front of a packed Ibrox crowd. Rangers fans and players will get a boost knowing that former tormentor Moussa Dembele has been ruled out of the tie. I’d have been all over him for a shot on target, but it’s time to explore some other options.
Lyon have been massively boosted however by the Scottish government allowing a number of star players to travel, most notably Lucas Paqueta, Bruno Guimaraes and Xherdan Shaqiri. Paqueta looks a cracking bet for a shot on target too.
The Brazillian playmaker averages 2.12 shots on target per 90 this season and over 4 shots at goal, so I’d be all over him as the first selection of a bet builder. 1.57 for 1+ is very generous, 4.2 for 2+ is huge.
Rangers vs Lyon Bookings Betting
If he’s to play, I’d immediately be drawn to Jerome Boateng. The big German has only played 30 minutes for his new club so far and he’s already managed to pick up a booking. He’ll also be tasked with marking Alfredo Morelos, who is not only a tough opponent technically and physically but he’s also a real gamesman. Boateng could easily be drawn in to his tactics as he is known to have a pretty short fuse. 3.5 for a card looks pretty solid to me.
From the Rangers side, I’d be looking at Borna Barisic. He’ll be tasked with going up against Xherdan Shaqiri if the winger plays, he also could see some of the talented Ryan Cherki or Karl Toko-Ekambi so no matter what he’s in for a tough evening. He always frequents a card in Old Firm games, when the competition level is higher, so expect him to be more likely here. That issue with a step up is shown in his last Europa campaign, where he was booked 5 times in 13 matches.
Rangers vs Lyon corners betting
Similarly to the Celtic preview I did, Rangers have an incredible average for corners. They take over 8 per game, but that’s largely down to how dominant they are domestically. However more so than Celtic I do think there’s reason to back them here. In front of the Ibrox crowd they will have their spells in the game and will put balls in the box and try and play for set pieces as they’re a side who have plenty of aerial threat.
Rangers 4+ corners looks like a good addition and takes the bet builder from 16/1 up to 23/1, so well worth it.
