Hearts prepare for this game after a 2-2 Premiership draw vs St Mirren.

In that game, Hearts managed 56% possession and 10 shots on goal with 4 on target. For Hearts, the goalscorers were Kyosuke Tagawa (20') and Lawrence Shankland (73'). For their opponents, St Mirren got 14 shots at goal with 5 on target. James Scott (7') and James Bolton (65') scored for St Mirren.

Over their past six games, Steven Naismith's Hearts have managed to score a total of 9 times giving them an average number of goals per match equal to 1.5.

Their previous form shows that Hearts:

  • haven't beaten Rangers in their previous 11 league matches.
  • are undefeated in their last 10 home league matches. It's been impressive.

Rangers will go into this encounter following on from a 5-2 Premiership win with the eclipse of Dundee in their previous fixture.

In that match, Rangers managed 62% possession and 31 attempts on goal with 13 on target. For Rangers, the goals were scored by Ross McCausland (45'), Cyriel Dessers (52'), Todd Cantwell (65') and Scott Wright (87', 93'). At the other end, Dundee got 11 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. Jordan McGhee (38') and Antonio Portales (40') scored for Dundee.

Proving their predisposition for fruitful encounters, we’ve seen goals 20 times in the prior six matches in which Rangers have taken to the pitch, making it an average of 3.33 goals each meeting. Opposition teams have got 6 from this total.

Coming into this fixture, Rangers haven't been defeated by Hearts in away games against them for the last 5 league games. A solid away record against them.

👥 Head to head

Delving into their past head to head meetings going back to 24/05/2023 tells us that these fixtures have not been fruitful for Hearts. They’ve not managed to get any wins whatsoever whereas Rangers have been too good for them, beating them in 83 per cent of those games played.

A total of 19 goals were scored between them in this period, with 4 for The Jam Tarts and 15 created by The Gers. That’s an average goals per game of 3.17.

🗞️ Team News: Hearts

Craig Halkett (Knee problems) and Calem Nieuwenhof (Tendon tear) won’t be able to feature for Hearts manager Steven Naismith.

It looks as if The Jam Tarts could make use of the 3-5-2 formation for this game with Craig Gordon, Toby Sibbick, Frankie Kent, Kye Rowles, Dexter Lembikisa, Aidan Denholm, Cameron Devlin, Scott Fraser, Alex Cochrane, Alan Forrest and Kyosuke Tagawa.

ℹ️ Team News: Rangers

Rangers manager Philippe Clement has to currently contend with reduced team options. Abdallah Sima (Hamstring injury), Ryan Jack (Muscle injury), Kieran Dowell (surgery), Leon Balogun (Back injury), Danilo (Knee injury) and Connor Goldson (Knee injury) will miss out on this game.

It’s our belief that The Gers appear most likely to utilise a 4-2-3-1 formation, giving starts to Jack Butland, James Tavernier, Ben Davies, Leon King, Ridvan Yilmaz, Mohamed Diomande, Nicolas Raskin, Ross McCausland, Todd Cantwell, Fábio Silva and Cyriel Dessers.

💡 Prediction

Our feeling is that Hearts have it within them to put one past this Rangers side, although one goal probably shouldn’t be as many as they’ll concede.

Therefore, we’re predicting a tight encounter finishing with a 1-2 victory for Rangers at the end of this one. Expecting it to be very competitive.
