Kilmarnock vs Rangers Match Analysis & Prediction
18/01/2023 11:00 pm
The Rangers and the Kilmarnock F.C. teams will face each other in the last league match of the season.
Due to the slim chance of winning the title for Rangers, this match is crucial for both teams. The Gers are on a nine-point deficit from Celtic.
Therefore, they must win this game to win their 56th Scottish title. Kilmarnock also participated in the semi-finals of the Viaplay Cup but was defeated by Celtic 2:0.
Rangers have been playing better since new manager Michael Beale took over at the end of last year. In six matches, they won five and drew one. They beat Celtic 2:2 at Ibrox earlier this month, winning five of their last six in the Premiership.
On the road, the Gers have picked up five wins from seven matches, including each of the last three.
The returns to fitness of centre-back pair Goldson and Davies have proved vital for the Teddy Bears, who have kept clean sheets in three of their last four league matches.
Still, we expect Rangers to give Killie a tough match here. Killie have lost just one of their last eight at Rugby Park since a 5:0 battering from Celtic back in August.
Since then, Derek McInnes’s side has won five and drawn twice. However, each of the last four matches between these sides at this venue has finished with under 2.5 goals scored.
This includes Rangers’ narrow 1:0 win on their last visit to this venue at the end of 2020. BTTS has occurred in six of the last eight meetings between these sides at this venue.
