Glasgow Rangers vs. Villarreal / Europa League – This Group in European League, where everything is still open, offers two very interesting duels, and this is one of them.

Villarreal is the leader of the group and they have one point more, which keeps them in the best position, because they will solve all dilemmas with a victory in this duel. The Rangers have with a series of three championship victories climbed to the second place on the table, while Villarreal has finally managed to celebrate on their field. The first duel of these rivals ended with a score of 2-2.
Glasgow Rangers vs. Villarreal begins 29.11.2018 at 21:00 CET
The Rangers are still in the game for placement in the knockout phase of Europa League and the decision will fall in the remaining two duels, or maybe even after this match. If so, then it is a bad outcome for the Scottish team, because it would mean they lost and that Spartak celebrated, which is the worst scenario. The best of course is to win, regardless of the outcome of the second match and then they themselves would decide on their own destiny.
They could have a much better chance if they avoided a defeat in Moscow in the last round. They had a lead three times against Spartak and were eventually defeated with 4-3 and all goals were scored till the 60th minute of the match. After that, they have spilled their anger at Motherwell and Livingston, which they defeated in the championship with ten goals scored. Coach Gerrard has combined the team a little bit in the previous round, while they are now performing with the strongest forces on the field, without the injured midfielder Murphy.
Probable lineups Glasgow Rangers: McGregor – Tavernier, Goldson, Worrall, Flanagan – Coulibaly, Ejaria – Candeias, Arfield, Middleton – Morelos
Villarreal is holding the first place in the group and they have one point more than their first two companions, but all this will not be worth much if they lose this match. They still have not lost in Europa League, while they played three draws and they only defeated Rapid with convincing 5-0. The first two draws were played with a lot of goals, while the last one was 0-0 against Rapid, to which they, after five home goals, failed to score a single goal as guests.
Villarreal has played many draws in LaLiga as well and they had a series of six games without a win, of which three ended unresolved. On Sunday they finally won for the first time this season on their field, when LaLiga is in question. Betis was the victim, because they received two goals at the beginning of the second half, although Villareal has also received one goal in the end. Midfielder Trigueros got injured in this match and will not be able to play.
Probable lineups Villarreal: A.Fernandez – Miguelon, Bonera, V.Ruiz, Pedraza – Caseres, Fornals, Samu, N.Sansone – Toko Ekambi, Bacca
Glasgow Rangers vs. Villarreal PICK
Both teams need points from this match, but a draw would also leave them in the game for placement in the knockout stage. That is why we could watch a somewhat more cautious approach on both sides, especially from Villarreal, to whom a draw is a very good outcome.
