Betting prediction: Rangers 1-2 Arsenal

Arsenal kicked off their pre-season in disastrous fashion as they were beaten 2-1 by Hibernian.

The Gunners produced a calamitous display in which they missed a penalty and a shocking goalkeeper error lead to a goal.

Rangers also began their pre-season campaign with a defeat with Tranmere beating them 1-0.

The Scottish champions looked sluggish and they will be hoping for better when they host Mikel Arteta’s side.

Rangers vs Arsenal: Recommended bets

Folarin Balogun to score first. The exciting youngster is expected to lead the line for Arsenal at Ibrox.

The 20-year-old will be eager to grab his opportunity on Saturday by impressing Mikel Arteta.

Rangers lost to League Two opposition last Saturday so this could be a great opportunity for Balogun to find the back of the net.

He is expected to be named in the line-up against Rangers having been on the bench against Hibs.

Rangers vs Arsenal: Match preview

Rangers suffered a shock defeat in their second game of pre-season as they were beaten by Tranmere Rovers.

Kieron Morris’ first-half proved to be the only goal of the game as the Scottish champions slipped to defeat.

Just five days prior, Steven Gerrard’s side had produced the same scoreline as they just edged past Partick Thistle.

Gerrard was hugely critical of the performance against Tranmere as he lambasted his side’s attitude.

Rangers will return to action at Ibrox on Saturday, although only 2,000 supporters will be in attendance.

Arsenal humiliated by Hibs

Arsenal supporters were left fuming on Tuesday as their side were beaten 2-1 by Hibernian.

The game at Easter Road couldn’t have gone much worse for the Gunners.

Early on, Eddie Nketiah missed an opportunity where he was clean through one on one with the keeper only to put it wide.

Then young goalkeeper Arthur Okonkwo gifted Hibs the lead as he failed to deal with Cedric’s back pass and Martin Boyle was able to easily tap home.

Pepe then missed a penalty just moments after Arteta’s side had fallen two goals behind to the Scottish side.

Arsenal will now need to produce a much better performance on Saturday with the pressure already mounting from the fans.
