On Thursday, starting at 17:55, the Spartak Moscow – Glasgow Rangers match will be played from the 4th round of the Europa League, 2018-2019.
The Glasgow tour ended with a white draw, 0-0.
Spartak Moscow gave up the services of the Italian coach Massimo Carrera, being named as interim, one of his seconds, Raul Riancho. It was rumored that the Russians are interested in Julen Lopetegui, recently demoted by Real Madrid. Spartak lost 0-2 with Rapid Vienna and drew 3-3 with Villarreal, 0-0 with Glasgow Rangers, on the tour. Neither “white-red” domestic will do well, taking the sixth position, 11 points away from Zenit St. Petersburg leader.
The formation coached by Steven Gerrard reborn under his wand. “Blue” defeated Rapid Vienna 3-1, then won with Villarreal, score 2-2 and Spartak, 0-0. In the domestic championship, Rangers ranks 3rd, 5 points in first place, Hearts, but he has an extra game. Gerrard’s “students” lost only 3 games in all competitions, all three with the same score of 0-1, a remarkable thing, considering that the Rangers started the season in July, with preliminaries in the Europa League.
Easily, Gerrard builds a Scottish title team capable of breaking the monopoly of the Celtic rival. Scots will try to take advantage of the precarious form of the Russians, and a positive result in Moscow can help them enormously in the economy of European spring qualifying.
PREDICTION: Both teams to score / YES @ 1.74
