After being held at home to Brighton last Saturday, Liverpool will now look to put their recent Premier League frustrations to one side. Especially as an all-British Champions League clash with Rangers is now on the horizon.
With Tuesday night serving up a battle of Britain, Jurgen Klopp’s men will look to build on their recent home European win over Ajax. However, if Liverpool can get the better of Rangers, it will strengthen their bid to reach the Round of 16.
While Rangers come into this game having lost each of their first two Champions League outings of the season, they made it to the Europa League final in May.

Liverpool vs. Rangers Odds
Liverpool vs. Rangers odds are current as of Sept. 29 on PointsBet Sportsbook.
- 3-way handicap: Liverpool (-700) | Draw (+700)| Rangers (+1500)
- Draw No Bet: Liverpool (-5000) | Rangers (+1025)
- Over/Under Goals: Over 2.5 (-325) | Under 2.5 (+230)
- Both Teams To Score: Yes (+100) | No (-130)
Current betting lines have sportsbooks leaning heavily towards a Liverpool win on Tuesday. Unfortunately, this means there is little value in backing Klopp’s men in the 3-way handicap market.
However, both teams to score may be worth your consideration before kick-off. With Liverpool’s current defensive issues, this is something that Rangers could take full advantage of.
Liverpool vs. Rangers Betting Tips
After missing out on both the Premier and Champions League last season, Liverpool are seemingly showing signs of a hangover during this. With the Merseyside outfit stuttering in both competitions, their usual aura of dominance is nowhere to be seen.
Something that Rangers will undoubtedly be aware of, and with manager Giovanni Van Bronckhorst having already overseen several European shocks, he will look to have another one up his sleeve at Anfield.
Liverpool vs. Rangers Prediction
Liverpool 2-1 Rangers
Although Liverpool have misfired both home and abroad, they still have more than enough quality to see them over the line on Tuesday. While their defense may be misfiring, their attack is primarily firing on all cylinders.
In my opinion, although Alisson’s goal will be breached again, his teammates at the other end of the field will bail him out. Therefore, I am backing a narrow 2-1 win for the hosts.
Liverpool vs Rangers Best Bets
➕ Antonio Colak Anytime Goal Scorer (+350) at BetMGM Sportsbook
WAGER: 1 unit
After arriving at Ibrox in July, Antonio Colak has undoubtedly won the Rangers fanbase over rather quickly. With eight goals in as many Scottish Premiership matches, the Croatian forward is currently the league’s top scorer.
Colak has a nose for goals in European competition, so with Liverpool’s defense being rather generous of late, I expect him to score at Anfield.
I am backing the 29-year-old to score and give Rangers something to cheer about.

➕ Liverpool and Over 2.5 (-110) at PointsBet Sportsbook
WAGER: 1 unit
With my earlier prediction of a 2-1 win, it makes perfect sense to expand on this further.
While the easiest way to do this is by looking at the winner/total goals double market, although there is little to no value in backing a Liverpool win, we can add some more meat to the bones.
This means adding total goals to the equation is the best way to make things more interesting. With over 2.5 just offering the right balance between risk and reward, this and a Liverpool win is the perfect combination.
