The third place they got in Scotland's Championship last year, gave them the chance to claim their entrance in Europa League. They start their 'race' quite early but they want to avoid last year's mistakes (they were eliminated from Progres Niederkorn, a team from Luxembourg). Steven Gerrard is now the team's coach and he will try to make a positive debut in the beginning of his career. In their most recent game they crushed 6-0 Bury.
On the other hand Shkupi came fourth in FYROM Championship, however their participation in Europa League's qualifiers this year, is the first one in a European tournament. They haven't got the experience required so it's not easy to defend themselves against the Scots.
A game quite alike David vs Goliath but that's up to Rangers. The capacity difference is enormous. Rangers surely learned from their past mistakes and they want to secure their qualification early. Home win with Handicap.
