Losing the home leg 1-0 has given Rangers a mountain to climb in their Champions League qualifying tie against Malmo and it’s the Swedish outfit that bookies expect to progress to the next stage, Skybet pricing them at 1/2 to get through.
Ally McCoist’s men are 13/8 (bet365) to qualify following last week’ disappointing Ibrox reverse but having looked sharp in a much-improved performance at St Johnstone on Saturday, the ‘Gers should not be written off.
The victory at McDiarmid will have given Rangers a much-needed confidence boost and heading to Sweden as outsiders might actually work in the ‘Gers’ favour as expectation will be slightly lower.
With Rangers also hopeful that Doran Goian can feature after he made an assured debut in Perth, McCoist’s men start to look like an attractive proposition in the Malmo Stadion, where Coral rate them at 11/8 to come out on top after 90 minutes.
Steven Naismith is the man that can make the difference for the visitors. The ‘Gers attacker broke the deadlock against Saints at the weekend to add to his strike in his side’s opener against Hearts and Paddy Power make him a tempting 11/4 to get on the scoresheet at any time in this one.
