With only seven matches remaining this season, the Rangers vs Celtics game is a crucial fixture for both clubs in their bid to finish the season as champions.
03.04.22 – Rangers vs Celtic – Scottish Premiership
This season’s title race in Scotland is proving to be one of the closest for many years, something which makes this game even more exciting. Rangers sit only three points behind Celtic coming into this 428th Old Firm derby knowing that they cannot afford to be beaten at home as that would give bitter rivals Celtic a six-point lead at the top of the table.
Celtic have settled under new manager Postecoglou, with their growing confidence seeing them having more passes per game than any other team across Europe barring Manchester City and PSG.
They are now unbeaten in 31 domestic matches and have scored an average of 2.09 goals per game so they will be confident of leaving Ibrox with three points for the first time since September 2019. This feisty encounter is no stranger to a red card or two and with so much at stake this time around, we shouldn’t be surprised to see fireworks.
Rangers are slight favourites to win this clash. The chance of over 2.5 goals is roughly even.
