The Gers have kept a clean sheet in three away matches in this competition this term and our tipster is backing Steven Gerrard's side to do it again

Rangers stand on the cusp of the Europa League group stages following a 1-0 win against Ufa in last week's first leg fixture at Ibrox.

The Russian side will hope to turn the play-off round tie on its head when they host Steven Gerrard's men on Thursday, but Sergey Tomarov's team will need a much-improved performance if they are to stand any chance of progression.

Latest odds

Rangers have kept a clean sheet in each of their three Europa League ties away from home this season and, so, it is no surprise that the Scots are strong favourites to reach the group stages.

Indeed, bet365 go 15/8 (2.88) that the Gers go through to the next round in style by winning on Russian soil, while the same firm offer 23/10 (3.30) that Gerrard's men secure a share of the spoils.

Alfredo Morelos Rangers

Ufa know that they simply must win if they are to knock Rangers out and bet365 go 7/5 (2.40) that the hosts claim a vital victory.

Team news

Kyle Lafferty and Alfredo Morelos will likely lead the line for Steven Gerrard's men.

The former scored twice on his first start since returning to Rangers on Sunday afternoon, while the latter has scored six goals so far this season - and both men will be keen to get amongst the goals again here.

Gers to cruise through?

Rangers are unbeaten under Gerrard and the Scottish side were frustrated at failing to build a clearer advantage in last week's first leg fixture.

Should the Gers show a little more cutting edge in Thursday's return leg, there could be value in backing the visitors to win by at least two clear goals at 5/1 (6.0) with bet365.

The same firm offer 7/2 (4.50) that Rangers win to nil on Russian soil.

Prediction

There has been just one goal scored in Rangers' three away matches in this competition thus far this term and value could lie in backing the Scottish side to keep things tight once again.

The 9/4 (3.25) quote from bet365 for Rangers to keep a clean sheet, then, could represent value for punters ahead of Thursday's tie.

Odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
