Rangers vs Hearts in the Scottish Premiership on Feb 6. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Rangers vs Hearts in the Scottish Premiership on Feb 6. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

After suffering a stunning 3-0 defeat to Celtic on Wednesday night, Rangers no longer find themselves at the summit of the Scottish Premiership table and after being humbled by Ange Postecoglou’s men, they are now playing catchup to their biggest rivals.

Which means the visit of Hearts on Sunday, is one that they could arguably do without and with the Jam Tarts earning a point from their last Ibrox trip, they will look to take advantage of an ailing Rangers side.

Rangers And Both Teams To Score

Going into this weekend’s round of Scottish Premiership fixtures and odds, the equation is simple for Rangers, and it is one that needs a return to winning ways on Sunday - especially as Celtic play before them and could temporarily go four points clear.

However, there are question marks regarding Rangers’ defence as of late and after shipping half a dozen goals in their last two league encounters, that will give Hearts confidence before their trip to Glasgow.

With that said, Rangers must bounce back after an abject showing on Wednesday and although they will have enough to edge out Hearts, a clean sheet may end up being too big of an ask.

Which means a Rangers win and both teams to score is where the smart money will go and if like me, you think that will be the case, you can back this outcome at odds of 12/5 with bet365.

Rangers Form, squad news, opinion

When a six-point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership is converted to a one-point deficit, you know that all is not well in recent times and this exact scenario is playing out in the Rangers camp right now.

Because after sitting rather pretty at the Scottish summit, Rangers have not only been pegged back by Celtic, but they have been overtaken and after being stunned into submission on Wednesday night, the blue half of Glasgow no longer rule the roost.

There is no doubt that Rangers are going through something of a rut right now and in many other leagues, their downturn in form would not be so critical. However, when it comes to the Scottish Premiership, you can only be perfect.

Something that Celtic have been recently and in doing so, have managed to reel in their crosstown rivals and after Rangers were held to a 3-3 draw away at Ross County last weekend, it was not just the defence that was to blame at Parkhead.

Quite simply, the Rangers squad failed to turn up when it really mattered and after such a poor showing at Celtic Park, manager Giovanni Van Bronckhorst will need to do some soul searching before Sunday.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the visit of Hearts, Ianis Hagi underwent knee surgery last month and he will now be out until the end of the season, and he now joins Filip Helander as a long-term absentee.

However, there is some good news and that is the fact that Joe Aribo will once again be available for selection after returning from AFCON duty, while Alfredo Morelos looks set to return after playing for Colombia in World Cup qualifiers

Hearts Form, squad news, opinion

As is always the case in the Scottish Premiership, the Glasgow duopoly are once again duking it out for top honours and this means the other 10 teams in division are attempting to be the best of the rest.

An accolade that is currently bestowed to Hearts and with Robbie Neilson’s men currently lying third in the table and comfortably at that, it is a position that they will look to finish in at the end of the season.

Because with a 10-point advantage over Motherwell, it would take something of a herculean collapse for them not to finish behind the Glasgow duo and if they can stay put between now and May, they will be rewarded with European football next time around.

However, an invite to next season’s Europa Conference League is not Hearts’ main priority for now and after being held to a 0-0 draw in the Edinburgh derby, they will be smelling blood before their trip to Ibrox.

Especially as this Hearts side are more than capable of bloodying the noses of the two teams above them and although this side only won promotion back to the Premiership at the end of last season, they have settled neatly back into the Scottish top-flight.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the trip to Rangers, manager Robbie Neilson is unable to call on the defensive pair of Craig Halkett and Michael Smith and their absences will be sorely missed.

History

Due to the regularity that these two clubs play each other, there is a rich amount of history between Rangers and Hearts and when they square off, it always makes for an interesting encounter.

In terms of their head-to-head record across the past 51 meetings, Rangers have won on 31 occasions, Hearts 11 and there have been 9 draws

About the Venue

Before any Rangers home encounter, the sound of Tina Turner’s “Simply The Best” is pumped out of the speakers and with the rapturous Ibrox crowd on hand to sing along, it is one of the better atmospheres in British football.

With COVID-19 restrictions being lifted in Scotland, it means there is no longer the need to show a Vaccine Passport before attending the ground. Which means, match tickets are the only item that is required to be produced at the time of writing.

Conclusion

There is no doubt that Rangers were off the boil in midweek and with the roles reversed at the top of the Scottish Premiership, it will be interesting to see just how Giovanni Van Bronckhorst’s men react this weekend.

Which means the visit of Hearts is going to be far from easy and failure to return to winning ways, will only add more pressure to the defending champions. The question is, can they deal with the pressure that has already mounted on their shoulders?
