Rangers vs Leverkusen Prediction
Rangers are struggling domestically but were very impressive in the way they came through their last round with Braga.
The addition of Ianis Hagi has been a real boost for the former Liverpool midfielder, but they are now 13 points adrift in the Scottish Premiership title race.
Nonetheless, they will be able to put all their focus on the Europa League, but face a difficult side to overcome in Leverkusen.
Peter Bosz’s side have been much improved this season and have been excellent both domestically and in Europe.
The manner with which they beat Porto was particularly convincing, while they are fourth in a very competitive Bundesliga.
Kai Havertz, Leon Bailey, Moussa Diaby and Exequiel Palacios are all very exciting young players, with Bosz coaching them into a coherent passing side that looks to dominate possession.
Favorites with 22Bet with odds of 6/5, expect Leverkusen to come out on top on Thursday and over two legs.
