Our prediction for this Europa League match:
High-flying Rangers will be aiming to extend their winning run to four games in all competitions when they take on Lech Poznan in their last group game in the Europa League. Rangers are eager to clinch top position in Group D, and they are likely to go for a win in Thursday’s clash against Lech Poznan. Steven Gerrard is likely to field the best possible side in the decider, and we predict that the Premiership leaders are going to prove their worth on the pitch.
Lech Poznan have nothing to play for in Thursday’s clash, and seeing that they have already suffered four defeats in the process, we are tempted to put our money on the visiting team. Jermain Defoe, who scored as a substitute in a 4-0 win over Ross County, is pushing for a start, while Jack and Katic are likely to miss the game with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Thomas Rogne):
Thomas Rogne is a Norwegian footballer who plays for Polish club Lech Poznan as a centre-back. The experienced defender spent his youth career at Norwegian clubs Lommedalen and Stabaek, and he continue wearing the blue shirt at senior level.
Rogne then joined Scottish giants Celtic in the winter of 2020, signing a three and a half-year contract with the club. The Norwegian footballer scored two goals in 50 appearances in the Scotland Premiership for the Hoops. Before moving to Lech Poznan in 2018, the towering defender (193 cm) played for the likes of Wigan Athletic, and IFK Goteborg as well.
Thomas Rogne made his Norway debut on February 29, 2012 in a friendly match against Northern Ireland. The Norwegians won the game by three goals to nil, with Rogne playing all 90 minutes. The Lech Poznan defender wears the No. 4 jersey at the Polish club and his preferred foot is right.
Highlighted Team (Rangers):
Glasgow Rangers are one of the two synonyms for Scottish Football. Glasgow Rangers were founded back in 1872 and they have been playing an important role in the Scottish top flight ever since. The Gers won their 54th Scottish Premier League title in the 2010/2011 season, but winning of European Cup Winners’ Cup trophy in 1972 is considered the club’s biggest success.
Glasgow Rangers defeated Dynamo Moscow in the final of the competition, with the likes of Stein and Johnston (two goals) scoring for the Scottish side. Celtic are considered the club’s biggest rivals and there have always been fireworks when the two teams meet in the Old Firm derby. The likes of Paul Gascoigne, David Weir, Stefan Klos, Chris Boyd, Ian Durrant and Kenny Miller are some of Rangers’ former notable players.
It has to be noted that the Gers welcome their rivals at Ibrox Stadium, the venue with the capacity of 50,817. Rangers’ support is largely drawn from the Protestant Unionist community.
