Rangers are the guests at Fir Park Stadium on Sunday for the Premiership clash with home side Motherwell.
For all of our match predictions, pre-game poll and statistics for Motherwell v Rangers, scroll down - as well as up-to-date odds.
Motherwell will play in this match following a 1-1 Premiership drawn match versus St Mirren.
In that game, Motherwell managed 52% possession and 10 attempts on goal with 3 on target. The only player to score for Motherwell was Devante Cole (27'). At the other end, St Mirren had 16 attempts on goal with 2 on target. Jamie McGrath (79') was the scorer for St Mirren.
It has been a rare occasion in recent games where Motherwell haven’t conceded. The reality is that The Steelmen have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 10 goals during that time. With no two games being the same, time will tell if that pattern will be maintained in this next game.
Their prior results show that Motherwell:
- are winless against Rangers in their previous 47 league matches. A shocking run, it really is.
- are without a home win in the past 5 league matches. Their fans aren't happy.
Rangers head into the match following a 1-2 Premiership win over Aberdeen in their previous game.
In that match, Rangers managed 80% possession and 17 attempts on goal with 7 on target. The scorer for Rangers was Alfredo Morelos (32', 50'). For their opponents, Aberdeen had 4 attempts at goal with 2 on target. Matty Kennedy (67') scored for Aberdeen.
In their last half-dozen clashes, Rangers have bagged a total of 12 goals. The Gers have additionally got on the scoresheet in every single one of those games. During that period, their defenders have seen 2 goals scored by their opponents.
Pre-game facts show that Rangers:
- have not been beaten by Motherwell when having played them away from home in the previous 23 league games. A simply stunning run of away results.
- haven't been defeated in their previous 14 league matches away from home. It's hard to ask more than that.
Head to head
Looking at their past head to head meetings going back to 11/11/2018 reveals that these encounters have been miserable for Motherwell. They have not managed to register any wins at all while Rangers have maintained the edge over them, beating them in 100% of those matches played.
Those games weren’t short on goals, either, with 26 in total which averages out at 4.33 goals per match.
Team News: Motherwell
Liam Donnelly (Knee Surgery), Trevor Carson (Knee Injury) and Scott Fox (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are not available for Motherwell manager Graham Alexander.
Team News: Rangers
Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has to choose a team with limited availability. Nikola Katic (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Scott Arfield (Sprained ankle) will not be playing here.
In our view, Motherwell should be able to put a goal past this Rangers team, but one goal may not quite be as many as they will have scored against them.
We’re therefore tipping a very close game with a 1-2 win for Rangers by the conclusion of the game. Let’s see what eventuates.
