East Fife v Rangers Tips & Predictions
18th August 2019 – 15:00
Match Preview & Team News
Rangers travel to Methil for their inaugural League Cup tie against a third-division side East Fife on Sunday afternoon at Bayview Stadium. The visitors played the semi-final of the competition last season and they are massive favourites to jump above the first hurdle in this second-round tie.
Steven Gerrard’s men got off to a dream start to the new season. They booked the Europa League play-offs clashes against Polish Legia Warsaw thanks to brilliant displays in two drubbings of Danish Midttjylland. The Gers bagged seven goals in two games against Danish Superligaen runners-up. Alfredo Morelos notched a brace on Thursday evening when Rangers claimed a 3-1 victory in the reverse fixture against Midtjylland.
Rangers had a tricky schedule at the start of the new Premiership season, but they went through it unharmed beating both Kilmarnock and Hibernian. They were especially impressive last weekend bagging six goals past the Hibs at Ibrox. Alfredo Morelos and Jermaine Defoe were the standout performers with a brace and a hat-trick respectively.
East Fife drew both of their League One matches against Clyde and Peterhead. They were also in action on Tuesday falling 0-2 at home to Stirling Albion in the second round of the Scottish Challenge Cup.
The head coach Darren Young can be satisfied with the fact his troops managed to go beyond the group phase in the League Cup. They were unbeaten in matches with the likes of Dundee United and Hearts conceding just one goal in the process.
