TODAY'S BEST BET | FEBRUARY 17
We’re off to Europe and the UEFA Europa League for today’s best bet as Borussia Dortmund look to cruise past Scottish heavyweights Rangers in the first leg of the Round of 32.
The German side find themselves dropping from the Champions League into the Europa League after a lacklustre group stage, which saw them finishing below Ajax and Sporting Lisbon.
Most recently, they cruised back to winning ways in a comprehensive 0-3 win against Union Berlin, in which they controlled the tempo of the game. You can expect them to dominate possession at home tomorrow.
There is an obvious gulf in class between these two sides and the fact that the first leg will be played in Germany makes it even tougher for the travelling Giovanni van Bronckhorst outfit.
Meanwhile, Rangers progressed to the next stages of the competition after finishing ahead of Sparta Prague by a single point, and being undefeated in their last four group stage matches.
However, they have given up the lead of the Scottish Premier League to bitter rivals Celtic and are somewhat underperforming this season since Steven Gerrard’s departure.
All signs point towards a comfortable Dortmund triumph.
- Dortmund are ranked 23 clubs higher in the UEFA rankings
- Rangers lost their opening two Europa League matches
- Dortmund won their last match 3-0 leading at both HT & FT
- Dortmund finished 3rd in their Champions League group
- Rangers finished 2nd in their Europa League group
