LASK vs Liverpool Prediction, Odds & Betting Tips - 21 September 2023

Matchday three of the Europa League sees Sparta Prague welcome Rangers to Epet Arena on Thursday evening (17:45).

Both sides are currently sat on three points after two games, and will battle it out to take top spot in Group C.

Team News

Lukas Haraslin picked up an injury on international duty with the Czech Republic, risking his involvement for Sparta, with skipper Ladislav Krejci also injured while away with the Faroe Islands.

As for Rangers, they remain without Tom Lawrence, Kieran Dowell and Rabbi Matondo, although they could welcome back Ryan Jack, Todd Cantwell and Danilo after setbacks of their own.

Match Odds

Sparta Prague are favourites for this game at 19/20, while the draw and a Rangers win are both priced up at 12/5.

It’s 8/13 if you fancy goals at both ends, while a repeat of the 2-0 Rangers victory from when the sides last met can be backed at 18/1.

Sparta Prague and over 2.5 goals @ 15/8

Sparta Prague have lost just one of their last 11 matches, while Rangers have failed to win any of their three away European outings this season going back to their Champions League qualifiers, conceding eight times in the process.

Both of these teams are no strangers to a high-scoring affair, with eight of Sparta Prague’s nine home games this season going over 2.5 goals, while the Gers’ last five matches have also seen three or more goals, and a repeat of that is fancied here.

I think there’ll be plenty of chances for both sides, but the hosts’ quality will see them take the three points.

Abdallah Sima to score anytime @ 3/1

Sima has scored six goals in his last five Rangers appearances – scoring in every one of those outings.

He’s also netted in both Europa League encounters this term, too.

This game will mean a lot to him personally, as he used to don the colours of Sparta Prague’s fierce rivals Slavia, so he won’t be lacking motivation to get one over on his old foes.
