Champions League 2022-23
The team from England in their championship is not the best way. Liverpool are currently in 9th place in the table.
In their previous match, they did not succeed and again lost points. At home, Liverpool could not beat Brighton, and played in a draw with a score (3-3).
In the Champions League, Liverpool also do not shine with results. After two matches played, they scored only 3 points. Since in the first round Napoli lost devastatingly (1-4).
In the second round, the team had a difficult match against Ajax, where the hosts managed to win (2-1).
The Scots are still an outsider in their quartet. In two matches, the team did not score a single point, conceding 7 goals into their own net, which is the worst result.
In the last round of the group stage of the Champions League, Glasgow Rangers lost devastatingly. We lost at home to the Italian club Napoli (0:3).
After that, the Rangers got two wins in their championship. Dundee United (2-1) and Hearts (4-0) were alternately beaten.
In this match, the guests are clearly trying to surprise their opponent in order to have a chance in this tournament.

Liverpool have been poor by their high standards this season. Jurgen Klopp’s men have been behind the pace in several games and are currently 9th in the league.
They sit second in their Champions League group, three points behind leaders Napoli. The team did not enjoy the best games against Serie A and registering a positive result against Rangers will be extremely important for the English side.
Rangers, on the other hand, are second in the Scottish Premier League, two points behind leaders Celtic. They are at the bottom of the group in the Champions League and have lost both group matches so far.
Prediction for this match: Both to score.
- There will be a post or crossbar in the match.
