Heart of Midlothian v Rangers Match Preview & Best Odds

Kick-off: 8pm, Wednesday 6th December 2023

 

Both Heart of Midlothian and Rangers head into their midweek meeting on the back of weekend victories and we envisage this encounter at Tynecastle Stadium proving to be an evenly-fought affair.

Heart of Midlothian are still some way off the top two in the Scottish Premiership table but they have hauled themselves into the top three on the back of a four-game unbeaten run in the top-flight. The Jambos collected all three points at the weekend, courtesy of a hard-fought 1-0 win over Kilmarnock at Rugby Park and their three previous league wins each came by a single-goal margin. Indeed, Hearts’ only defeats in their last six games across competitions have been against midweek opponents Rangers, a 3-1 home defeat in the Scottish League Cup last month following on from a 2-1 loss at Ibrox in the Premiership towards the end of October.

Eight points currently separate Hearts from second-placed Rangers in the Scottish Premiership table but while the Edinburgh outfit will be aiming to narrow that gap tonight, they will be only too aware that fourth-placed St Mirren are breathing down their necks with only one point separating the sides. Defeat for Hearts tonight could see the Buddies leapfrog them in the Premiership table but it could also be enough to send the Jambos down to fifth should other results go against them.

Rangers are struggling to keep up with leaders Celtic in the race for the Scottish Premiership title, eight points separating the two arch-rivals as we rapidly approach the festive period. Nevertheless, should Celtic slip-up and Rangers win tonight, then the difference between the sides would be down to just five points with Philippe Clement’s side also enjoying a game-in-hand over the table-toppers. The Gers are enjoying an excellent run of form right now and confidence will be high in the visiting camp ahead of tonight’s match, something which should prove to be the difference between the two sides in what should nevertheless be an evenly-fought and thoroughly entertaining affair.

 

Back Rangers to win and both teams to score at best odds of 11/5
