Tip Reasoning

  • Borussia Dortmund have never lost at home against Scottish opponents (W4, D3).
  • Nine of Dortmund’s 15 Bundesliga wins this season saw a 2+ goal winning margin.
  • Rangers failed to win in 20 of their 23 away games with German opponents (D8, L12).

Dortmund must make amends

After dropping out of the Champions League before the new year, Dortmund’s last chance at major European silverware comes in the Europa League, where they must face Scottish Champions Rangers. This is a daunting task for most teams, but with a return of six clean sheets from seven historical home clashes with Scottish opponents, Dortmund will be confident of success.

A resounding 3-0 success in Dortmund’s last league outing serves to inspire confidence ahead of this big first-leg as they look to stamp their authority before the return leg as they eye progression from a fifth two-legged tie in what is the seventh such clash with Scottish teams (W4, L2).

Dreams of days gone by for van Bronckhorst

Rangers Boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst played a starring role when scoring the opener for his current club as a player in Rangers’ last victory away in Germany, a 2-1 success in Leverkusen way back in 1998/99!

Times have changed since then and with the German league sitting five places above Scotland in UEFA’s country coefficient system, their imperious domestic form must be taken with a pinch of salt, with the quality of opposition rising dramatically.

Rangers did not lose an away game in Europe last season, but they are yet to succeed on their European travels this season (D3, L2). As such, I predict that trend to continue here with a handicap-busting 2-0 victory for Dortmund, one which would increase their already impressive home record against Scottish clubs.
