Rangers vs St. Mirren Prediction & Betting tips
Last Saturday, both Glasgow Rangers and St. Mirren FC kicked off the 2020/21 season of the Scottish Premiership. Both teams won 1-0 in the end and drove in the first three of the new season, which it is now time to build on.
In the run-up to the match between the Glasgow Rangers and St. Mirren, the odds of the bookmakers clearly turned towards the home-strong Gers, as the odds comparison of the betting base shows.
No wonder, because at Glasgow Rangers against St. Mirren, the prognosis must take into account that the favorite has only lost two of the 32 encounters with the Saints in the last 15 years.
So the most important question is how the odds that are available at Glasgow Rangers against St. Mirren for tip 1 can be boosted. We consider a zero victory to be the most sustainable.
With 54 national championships, the Glasgow Rangers are still Scotland’s record champions. The last time the Gers were at the top of the final table in 2011. Since then, the trophy has gone to city rivals Celtic nine times in a row.
Certainly the lost national supremacy is also due to the fact that the Light Blues had to start again in 2012 after bankruptcy in the fourth highest Scottish league. Nevertheless, after three runner-up championships in a row, the hunger for championship number 55 is great.
Once again, the Gers go into the race as pursuers and cannot afford to miss too many points in the long-distance duel with Celtic. Against an opponent like St. Mirren, the Light Blues are doomed to win. All the more so because the game takes place in the local Ibrox Stadium, where the Gers have their great strength.
Meanwhile, the preparation for the season gave me a lot of courage to make it work again with an attack on Celtic. Not only did the Rangers win all four test matches to zero, with Champions League round of 16 Olympique Lyon being demystified, but the league opener also ended with a 1-0 victory.
Then, however, Steven Gerrard’s team caught a used day 148 days after the Europa League first knockout round first leg against Bayer Leverkusen. With a desolate performance, the dreams of entering the final tournament burst early. Instead of taking part in the final tournament in Germany in August parallel to the Premiership kick-off, Glasgow can now concentrate fully on the league.
At Glasgow Rangers against St. Mirren, the odds are in the direction of the Light Blues, who have also won the last five competitive games against the Saints without conceding a goal.
The end of the season was certainly not the worst for St. Mirren FC. The Saints, who had already barely held the class with 21 points from the 33 games of the league operation as a promoted team in the 2018/19 season, were finally in the relegation battle again.
The relegation playoffs would no longer have been avoidable. The mood in the camp of the three-time Scottish Cup winners was all the more exuberant last Saturday when the new season kicked off with a 1-0 home win over Livingston.
The efficiency was certainly particularly gratifying. St. Mirren FC fired just five shots. Two of them went on goal. One was in there. The goal was scored by one of the Buddies’ most prominent newcomers in the form of Richard Tait.
This gives hope that the Saints’ greatest shortcoming may have been resolved. With only 24 goals from the 30 games of the canceled preseason, Jim Goodwin’s squad was by far the most harmless team in the entire Premiership. Against this background, it is very consistent to play the tip on a zero victory for the Gers at Glasgow Rangers against St. Mirren.
It will undoubtedly be a special game for Jak Alnwick, who came to St. Mirren from the Rangers on a free transfer and will now stand between the posts for the first time since moving to his old place of work in Ibrox Park.
Whether the Saints can kidnap something countable there will certainly also depend on him. In any case, historically it should be difficult. The last time St. Mirren got a point in the 1-1 draw in October 2011 with the Light Blues. Since then there have been seven defeats in a row at the Gers.
