Hibernian vs Rangers betting tips: Scottish Premiership preview, predictions and odds

Match preview

With this fixture sandwiched in-between two massive European games, could this be the perfect time to play Rangers?

On Tuesday night, Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team faced PSV Eindhoven in the first leg of their Champions League play-off.

It truly was a thriller at Ibrox, with the Dutch side scoring on the cusp of half time, only for Rangers to equalise three minutes later.

Antonio Čolak rounding off a brilliant team move, set up by Steven Davis’ through-ball and then James Tavernier’s pull-back.

A howler from the PSV goalkeeper then presented Rangers with a lead, Tom Lawrence the beneficiary as his free-kick trundled in.

However, the visitors equalised from a late corner, meaning it ended 2-2 in Glasgow; it’s now winner takes all in Eindhoven on Wednesday.

Before then, the Light Blues will be looking to continue their perfect start in the Premiership.

Last weekend, Malik Tillman, Čolak, Scott Arfield and Lawrence all scored a 4-0 demolition of St Johnstone.

This though, should be a tougher assignment.

Although, Hibernian haven’t won since the opening day, beaten 2-1 at the Tony Macaroni Arena by Livingston last weekend.

A week earlier, on his return to the club, Martin Boyle had come off the bench to rescue a point in the Edinburgh Derby.

Nevertheless, having been knocked out the League Cup in the group stage, and only won once in the league so far, it’s not been the dream start for Lee Johnson.

Will Rangers move top of the table, even if only for 26 hours or so, with victory at Easter Road?
