📊 Form Guide

Rangers LWLWLW

Rangers will be looking for a repeat result of a 3-0 Premiership victory versus St Mirren.

In that game, Rangers managed 73% possession and 27 attempts at goal with 11 on target. The only player to score for Rangers was Alfredo Morelos (69', 74'). At the other end, St Mirren had 4 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. Conor McCarthy (23' Own goal) scored for St Mirren.

A recurring characteristic of recent Rangers games is the high number of scores with a nil in them.

From their previous sextet of matches leading up to this one, in 5 of them a wager on both teams scoring would've been a losing one. We will see if that trend will be sustained in this game.

Coming into this fixture, Rangers haven't lost in the league to St Johnstone in their previous 6 games.

St Johnstone DDLDWD

In their previous fixture, St Johnstone drew 1-1 in the Premiership match with Dundee United.

In that match, St Johnstone had 39% possession and 10 shots on goal with 4 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for St Johnstone was Liam Craig (55'). For their opponents, Dundee United had 15 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. Nicky Clark (6') was the scorer for Dundee United.

For 5 of the past six games involving St Johnstone, a notably low volume of goals have been struck between them and opposing teams. The overall average number of goals per game within that period works out to just 1.67, with the average goals for The Saints being 0.83.

A look at their previous results shows us that St Johnstone:

  • are winless against Rangers when having played them away from home in the previous 2 matches in the league.
  • have not been beaten in their last 4 away league matches.
  • haven’t won away from home in the past 3 matches in the league.

🤜🤛 Head to head

A review of past results between these clubs stretching back to 27/02/2018 tells us that these encounters have not been kind to St Johnstone. They’ve not been able to register any wins whatsoever whereas Rangers have been the better of the two, running out winners in 67 per cent of those ties.

Loads of goals were seen in those games, too - 22 overall at an average of 3.67 goals per meeting.

The match was refereed by Willie Collum.

📋 Team News: Rangers

Jermain Defoe (Hamstring Injury) and Nikola Katic (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will not be able to play for Rangers gaffer Steven Gerrard.

In all likelihood, The Gers will possibly line up in a 4-3-3 formation in the match, beginning the first half with Jon McLaughlin, Borna Barisic, Leon Balogun, Connor Goldson, James Tavernier, Glen Kamara, Ryan Jack, Joe Aribo, Cedric Itten, Alfredo Morelos and Ianis Hagi.

ℹ️ Team News: St Johnstone

Due to a completely injury-free group available to select from, St Johnstone manager Callum Davidson does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever before this game.

From our viewpoint, The Saints might begin the game with a 3-4-3 system, giving starts to Elliott Parish, Jason Kerr, Liam Gordon, Jamie McCart, Danny McNamara, Liam Craig, Alistair McCann, Callum Booth, Stevie May, Callum Hendry and David Wotherspoon.

💭 Prediction

We’ve got the feeling that Rangers will most probably get amongst the goals when they meet St Johnstone, who won’t find it easy to find the back of the net.

Our selection here is for a comfortable 2-0 win for Rangers at the end of the match.
