liverpool vs Rangers Live Football Score Match 05 Oct 2022

One of the more interesting matchups in the third round of Champions League groups stages is the Liverpool vs Rangers duel, scheduled for Tuesday, October 4th. So, let’s take a closer look at this game and what we can expect from it.Rangers to Win with Handicap (+3)

While we certainly expect Liverpool to win this match despite being in poor form, we find it incredibly difficult to pass on a chance to back Rangers with a handicap of three goals, give Liverpool’s poor form.

Yes, Rangers did start their Champions League journey with a couple of losses and a -7 goals difference, but Liverpool has struggled since the start of the season and we wouldn’t be that surprised to see them struggle to beat Rangers by three or more goals.

Since we can see Rangers taking advantage of Liverpool’s issues at the moment to at least secure a respectable loss, we can also see them scoring in this match.

So, our next prediction is for both teams to score in this game. Yes, Rangers failed to score in their first two games in CL group stages, but Liverpool only managed to keep a clean sheet twice in their nine matches in Premier League and Champions League combined.Both Teams to Score – Yes

The home team is the absolute favourite, but perhaps the guests can surprise us. In any case, let’s take a closer look at both teams now:
Liverpool

The Reds enter this game after another disappointing result since they failed to beat Brighton over the weekend. In fact, they had to struggle to pull back from being down two-nil and even after turning the game around they failed to secure a win. So, things aren’t looking that good in Liverpool right now.

Meanwhile, Curtis Jones, Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Calvin Ramsey will likely miss this game through injuries, while Andy Robertson is questionable.

Liverpool Predicted Lineup:

Alisson – Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Tsimikas – Elliott, Henderson, Thiago – Jota, Salah, Diaz
Rangers

With six wins, one draw, and one loss in Scottish Premier League, Rangers is currently second in the standings, two points behind the defending champions and their bitter rivals Celtic. However, things aren’t looking that good in the Champions League, which Rangers started with a couple of convincing losses to Ajax and Napoli.

In addition to this, Rangers currently has six players on their injury list, which could affect their performance as well.

Rangers Predicted Lineup:

McGregor – Tavernier, Goldson, Davies, Barisic – Lundstram, Davis, Jack – Tillman, Morelos, KentLiverpool vs Rangers Predictions

Rangers have scored six goals across their last two games
Liverpool have seen BTTS land in seven of nine games this term
Six of the last seven at Anfield have seen both teams score
Liverpool have won 13 of their last 15 home UCL group games, averaging close to three goals per game in those victories

Huge task for Rangers

Rangers have been brushed aside in their two European games so far, with a trip to Anfield looking like another daunting prospect for the Gers. After their run to the Europa League final last season, they’ll be lucky to feature in Europe past November at this rate.

The visitors have lost heavily to both Ajax and Napoli, two sides who are putting Liverpool under pressure too. With those three sides set to battle it out for two places in the last 16, Rangers will struggle to even make it into third and stay in Europe.
Gers need a boost

Rangers are still looking for their first goal in the Champions League this season, after losing 7-0 on aggregate across their opening two matches. On the plus side, they’ve never previously failed to score in their opening three games in this competition.

The visitors have managed to give themselves a lift heading into this match. They followed up a 2-1 win over Dundee United with a 4-0 hammering of Hearts at the weekend. That should boost confidence for the visitors, who are out to prey on Liverpool’s issues.
Defensive issues remain for Liverpool

The Reds are expected to win this one comfortably, given Rangers have lost by three goals or more in three of their last five matches. However, the hosts have their own problems – with their lack of clean sheets becoming alarming.

Both teams have scored in seven of Liverpool’s nine games so far, so I’m backing Rangers to finally open their tally in Europe. Both teams to score is my selection in this clash, having landed in six of the last seven games at Anfield.

Liverpool have won 13 of their last 15 home Champions League group stage matches (D1 L1), scoring 36 goals in those 13 wins. Given that record and the Reds’ issues in defence, back a 3-1 victory for the hosts.
After being held at home to Brighton last Saturday, Liverpool will now look to put their recent Premier League frustrations to one side. Especially as an all-British Champions League clash with Rangers is now on the horizon.

With Tuesday night serving up a battle of Britain, Jurgen Klopp’s men will look to build on their recent home European win over Ajax. However, if Liverpool can get the better of Rangers, it will strengthen their bid to reach the Round of 16.While Rangers come into this game having lost each of their first two Champions League outings of the season, they made it to the Europa League final in May.

Liverpool vs. Rangers odds are current as of Sept. 29 on PointsBet Sportsbook.

3-way handicap: Liverpool (-700) | Draw (+700)| Rangers (+1500)

Over/Under Goals: Over 2.5 (-325) | Under 2.5 (+230)
Both Teams To Score: Yes (+100) | No (-130)

Current betting lines have sportsbooks leaning heavily towards a Liverpool win on Tuesday. Unfortunately, this means there is little value in backing Klopp’s men in the 3-way handicap market.

However, both teams to score may be worth your consideration before kick-off. With Liverpool’s current defensive issues, this is something that Rangers could take full advantage of.
Liverpool vs. Rangers Betting Tips

After missing out on both the Premier and Champions League last season, Liverpool are seemingly showing signs of a hangover during this. With the Merseyside outfit stuttering in both competitions, their usual aura of dominance is nowhere to be seen.

Something that Rangers will undoubtedly be aware of, and with manager Giovanni Van Bronckhorst having already overseen several European shocks, he will look to have another one up his sleeve at Anfield.
