Rangers face Legia Warsaw for a place in the Europa League group stages.

These two teams played out a tense goalless draw in last week's first-leg fixture and Thursday's tussle looks likely to be another keenly-contested encounter.

Rangers vs Legia Warsaw latest odds

Rangers are available at 4/9 (1.44) with bet365 to make home advantage count in the return leg. Steven Gerrard's men will surely be roared on by raucous home support at Ibrox.

Aleksandar Vukovic's side claimed a 2-0 win against Atromitos in Greece in the previous round and will feel that they are more than capable of getting the result that they need to reach the group stages.

This time around, bet365 offer 7/1 (8.0) that history repeats itself, with Legia winning away from home. The draw is available at 3/1 (4.0) with the same firm. A score draw would, of course, be enough to see Vukovic's men through.

Rangers vs Legia Warsaw team news

With seven goals in this competition already this term, Alfredo Morelos could prove to be a key man for the hosts. The Colombian striker is expected to lead the line for Gerrard's men on Thursday.

Rangers vs Legia Warsaw preview

Rangers have struck an impressive 17 times in their four competitive matches at Ibrox this term and Gerrard's men will be keen to get amongst the goals again on Thursday.

On this occasion, bet365 offer 5/4 (2.25) that there are more than two goals in this game whilst the hosts can be backed at 7/4 (2.75) to score in both halves. Furthermore, the odds compilers offer 7/5 (2.40) that the Gers (-1) beat the handicap mark.

Goals, however, may not flow quite so freely when Legia visit Glasgow. Indeed, the Polish side have yet to concede in seven matches in this competition thus far this term and six of those have featured under three goals.

With that in mind, bet365 offer 8/13 (1.62) that there are fewer than three goals scored and 1/2 (1.50) that either side fails to find the net on a tense evening at Ibrox.

Rangers vs Legia Warsaw prediction

Better value, though, could lie in backing the Gers to edge a low-scoring match. Gerrard's men have a strong home record and that could well stand them in good stead for this tie. Value, therefore, may lie in backing Rangers to win and fewer than three goals to be scored at 15/8 (2.88) with bet365.

Odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
