There will be a fascinating battle at Ibrox on Wednesday, as Rangers host Liverpool in the Champions League. Both sides still have work to do if they are to achieve their targets in the competition this season, with Liverpool sitting three points behind Napoli, and Rangers currently three behind Ajax in the battle for the Europa League spot.
Before Betting On Rangers vs Liverpool
Amazingly, the first ever European fixture between these two giants of British soccer only took place last week in the Champions League. On that occasion, Rangers offered very little in the final third, and Liverpool were able to cruise to a comfortable 2-0 win at Anfield.
The scoring was opened inside the opening ten minutes by Trent Alexander-Arnold, before Mohamed Salah wrapped up the victory from the penalty spot early in the second half.
The Gers have a poor record against teams from England, as they are winless in their previous five fixtures. They have lost four times during that period, and have picked up just one point. Liverpool also has a very good record in Scotland, as they have claimed victories in three of the previous seven fixtures. But, they have never won consecutive games against Scottish opposition away from home.
Rangers has a poor scoring record in the competition, as they have netted just seven times in their last 16 fixtures. Their home record in the Champions League is also very poor, as they have lost six of their previous eight games at Ibrox. Liverpool were beaten on matchday one of the Champions League away from home, but they haven’t lost back-to-back games on the road since 2019.

Liverpool’s record against Scottish opposition is very strong, and it looks hard to get past them winning this match on Wednesday. They have struggled for form throughout the season, but this should be a comfortable evening at Ibrox.
