Standard Liège will play in this match following on from a 1-1 First Division A drawn game vs Club Brugge.

Les Rouches have been finding it hard to keep clean sheets recently, although they have also done enough to convert their own chances into goals. Looking at their last 6 games, Les Rouches have conceded in 6 of them as well as getting on the scoresheet in 6 of those matches. That pattern isn’t assured to be continued into this next game, of course.

Showing their bias toward productive encounters, goals have been celebrated 21 times in the previous 6 games in which Rangers have taken to the pitch, making it a mean average of 3.5 goals each meeting. Opposing teams have managed 4 of these goals.
We are of the inclination to think that Rangers and Standard Liège may well find themselves both scoring in what promises to be a very even battle here.
It’s looking like it could well end up as a draw. We’re therefore predicting a 1-1 draw when the full-time whistle blows.
