Our tipster thinks that goals will be at a premium when Steven Gerrard's charges travel to the Russian capital for Thursday's Europa League clash

Rangers' Europa League campaign continues with a testing trip to take on Spartak Moscow in the Russian capital.

The men from Govan have gone 11 matches without loss in this competition under the stewardship of Steven Gerrard and will take a sizeable step towards the knockout stages should they extend that run to 12 matches in Moscow.

Latest odds

Spartak, who remain under the stewardship of caretaker boss Raul Riancho, can be backed at 23/20 (2.15) to breathe fresh life into their Europa League campaign with a win on home soil.

Rangers are a 47/20 (3.35) chance with 888Sport to come out on top, while the same firm go 5/2 (3.50) that the match ends all square - as it did when these teams met at Ibrox two weeks ago.

Team news

Other than long-term absentee, Samuel Gigot, Riancho has a fully fit squad from which to choose.

Gers have no fresh concerns ahead of Thursday's tussle. Daniel Candeias was sent off on Saturday, but is available to face Spartak.

With eight goals in his last nine matches, Alfredo Morelos could prove a pivotal figure for Rangers, while Northern Ireland striker Kyle Lafferty could come back into contention after missing last weekend’s win against St Mirren through injury.

A tight tussle?

Five of Rangers' last seven matches away from home have featured fewer than three goals and 888Sport offer 9/10 (1.90) that the trend continues in this clash.

Late drama?

There have been at least two goals scored after the break in three of Rangers' last five away matches and the 11/10 (2.10) quote for more than one second half goal to be scored could prove popular.

Prediction

Four of Rangers' five Europa League ties away from home this season have featured fewer than three goals and 888Sport's 9/10 (1.90) quote for that trend to continue could represent outstanding value for punters ahead of Thursday's tie in Moscow.
