Gerrard's men have proved a tough nut to crack in the Europa League, and Al Hain-Cole doesn't expect many goals when they face the Legionaries

Rangers will be hoping for another memorable European night when they travel to the Polish Army Stadium to take on Legia Warsaw in Thursday's Europa League qualifier.

Steven Gerrard has overseen five wins and no defeats in six qualification matches this summer, extending an impressive record that includes just two defeats in 20 European games.

Latest odds

Having won eight and lost none of their nine fixtures in all competitions this season, they are 13/10 (2.30) favourites with bet365 to take a major step towards the group stages with a big away victory here.

The Legionaries have reached this stage despite winning just three of their six matches, but are priced at 21/10 (3.10) to come out on top in this one.

Those other three games in that run have all resulted in draws, and there are odds of 11/5 (3.20) available on this clash also finishing up all square.

Team news

Ivan Obradovic has been dropped from the hosts' Europa League squad, while Arvydas Novikovas and Domagoj Antolic are both injury doubts.

Filip Helander and Greg Docherty have made way for Andy King and Brandon Barker in the travelling squad, despite the former scoring a debut goal in Sunday's 3-0 League Cup win over East Fife.

Preview

Fans hoping for a repeat of the Gers' thrilling 7-3 aggregate victory over Midtjylland are likely to be disappointed considering Aleksandar Vukovic's team is yet to concede in six Europa League games this season, and come into this match on the back of five consecutive clean sheets.

Having failed to score in three of those last five games, they are also unlikely to provide too much trouble at the other end for a Rangers side that has proved fairly durable in continental competition – keeping five clean sheets in their most recent eight.

Predictions

All in all, odds of 8/11 (1.73) are not to be missed on no more than one team getting on target in a tight encounter.
