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

Dundee United have already taken four points off Rangers this season, winning 1-0 in August before a 1-1 draw in February, both at Tannadice. At Ibrox, Rangers have won their last six league meetings, dating back to 2011. The Light Blues have won nine of 14 league matches after European games this season. 

Both teams to score is 6/4.

Rangers to win and over 2.5 goals is 4/6.

Rangers to win and both teams to score is 9/4.

James Tavernier is 4/1 to break the deadlock and 21/10 to score anytime. 

Match preview

Quite improbably, Rangers are Europa League Finalists!

On Thursday night, the Light Blues welcomed RB Leipzig to Glasgow, with the Bundesliga club 1-0 up from the first leg in Saxony.

This though was whipped out by James Tavernier 19 minutes in before, mere moments later, Glen Kamara arrowed home a go-ahead goal in the tie.

RB Leipzig hit back midway through the second half but, nine minutes from the end, John Lundstram side-footed in the winner, sending Ibrox crazy.

This saw Rangers advance 3-2 on aggregate, meaning it'll be they who face Eintracht Frankfurt at Estadio Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán on 18 May.

1961, 1967, 1972, 2008 and now 2022 are the years in which Rangers have reached the final of a continental competition.

The week after next is going to be a particularly busy one for Rangers, who'll also meet Hearts in the Scottish Cup Final three days after their game in Seville.

Back in the Premiership, Giovanni van Bronckhorst's side held Celtic to a 1-1 draw last Sunday, thanks to Fashion Sakala's second half equaliser.

However, they remain six points behind the run-away league-leaders coming into the weekend, meaning their hopes of retaining the title are slim at best.

But, with two massive cup finals to come later this month, don't expect Rangers to take their foot off the gas.

Dundee United meanwhile will have been watching on Thursday night, thinking they'd like a piece of this European football.

Last weekend, the Tangerines took a giant step towards achieving this, beating Motherwell 1-0 at Tannadice, thanks to Dylan Levitt's lovely goal.

So, having only lost two of their last 12, Tam Courts' men remain fourth, three clear of Ross County and four above the defeated Steelmen.

The Arabs host Celtic on Wednesday, before concluding their season up at Ross County, so there's still plenty to play for.

Dundee United beat Rangers at home in August and held them to a draw in February, so can they now stun Ibrox?

Rangers team news

Alfredo Morelos, Ianis Hagi and Filip Helander remain long-term absentees, while Kemar Roofe still isn't fit enough to feature.

Aaron Ramsey though is back in contention; he was an unused substitute on Thursday.

Joe Aribo though, who'd been filling-in up front in the absence of Roofe and Morelos, went off with a suspected concussion against RB Leipzig.

No chances are likely to be taken with him, meaning Fashion Sakala will come in to lead the line.

Scott Arfield, James Sands, Steven Davis and Amad could all be rotated into the XI.

Dundee United team news

January signing Tony Watt will continue to lead the line, despite the fact his only goal in Tangerine came against Motherwell, the side he'd just left.

Marc McNulty was his partner last weekend, but Nicky Clark could come in.

Jamie Robson, who scored the winner against Rangers earlier this season, won't feature as he joined Lincoln City 24 days later.
