RNG vs LYN Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for Rangers vs Lyon Europa League Live Score September 17


RNG vs LYN Dream11: It was always expected to be a difficult challenge for Steven Gerrard to replicate Rangers’ impressive season last year. A title and run to the last 16 in the UEFA Europa League has already been followed by Rangers losing in the league and being knocked out of their first qualification round in the UEFA Champions League by Malmo. They come up against Peter Bosz’ Lyon side that is very attacking with two former Celtic players on the scoresheet in their 3-1 win over Strasbourg at the weekend. Those goal scorers being Jason Denayer and Moussa Dembele. Rangers have proven to be a stubborn force at Ibrox under Gerrard but their last two matches at home in Europe have been defeats to Slavia Prague and the aforementioned Malmo so Lyon should fancy their chances here.

Date: September 17, Friday
Kick-Off: 12:30 AM (IST)
Venue: Ibrox Stadium, Glasgow

DEF: Emerson, Denayer, Balogun, Tavernier
MID: Aribo, Paqueta, Aouar
FOR: Roofe, Ekambi, Kent

Likely Winner:

  • Rangers are top of the Scottish Premiership with four wins from five games but haven’t yet reached the heights of last season.
  • After failing to win their first three games of the season, Lyon have strung together successive victories. The timing of this game is far from ideal for Lyon, as they face PSG away three days later.
  • Despite only one win from their last three Europa League matches, Steven Gerrard has made Rangers very hard to beat in Europe.
  • Rangers have only lost two of their last 24 home matches in the competition but it would be a surprise if Lyon didn’t get at least a point on Thursday.

Match Odds:

The odds in favour of a Lyon win is 2.50.
