Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
After recording a hard-fought 1-0 win over Kilmarnock at the weekend, Rangers will be aiming to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they host Dundee United at their Ibrox Stadium on Matchday 33. The Gers aim to keep their 100% record at home alive, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Dundee United. Alfredo Morelos returns from suspension, while Croatia international Nikola Katic remains sidelined with injury.
The Terrors, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Ross County and Livingston. Dundee United’s main goal is to secure a top-six finish, but given Rangers’ home record in the 2020/21 season, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. In their last meeting at Ibrox Stadium Rangers crushed Dundee United 4-0. Midfielder Peter Pawlett is banned for the visitors following his sending off in the win over Livingston.
