Rangers have made a very good start this season with Steven Gerrard on the bench, they haven't been defeated in eleven official games so far. In the first qualification round of Europa League they eliminated Shkupi from FYROM (2-0 on aggregate), Osijek from Croatia (2-1 on aggregate) and Maribor from Slovenia (3-2 on aggregate). At Inbrox, they won Shkupi and Maribor with two goals difference, while they drew 1-1 with Osijek, as they conceded the goal from their opponent at 89'. Colombian attacker A.Morelos, who may be solded in another team, is the only problem for Gerrard. Midfielder Rossiter won't play, actually he hasn't participated yet till now.
UFA surprised everyone last year in Russia as they came 6th on the table and got their participation in Europa League. They qualified twice so far, starting from the second qualification round. Firstly against Domzale from Slovenia (1-1 on aggregate with the away goals rule) and then against Progress from Luxembourg (4-3 on aggregate). In Russian League they started with a record 1-1-2, with the most recent game to be the one on Monday in Dynamo Moscow's home (0-3). Young attacker Seidakhmet won't play in tonight's game too.
It seems that Rangers have the lead, not only in tonight's game, but also for the qualification in Europa League groups. Russian team lack on experience while they seem to be tired. Tonight's game is the 9th for them, just in a 30-day spell. The odds on home team's win are getting down, for the time being Rangers' win is offered at 1.62.
