Rangers 1-5 to make it through against Osijek

Europa League second qualifying round second legs
From 4pm Thursday
Rangers have not won back-to-back European ties since getting to the Europa League final in 2007-08 but they will achieve the feat if they overcome Croatian side Osijek at Ibrox.

The Gers dug out a 1-0 victory in last week's away leg despite losing the shot count 17-3 and they are likely to have a more even share of the game in Glasgow.

Osijek were guilty of poor finishing and it may well end up costing them as they are 4-1 to qualify from the tie with Rangers 1-5 to make it through.

Hibernian may find it more difficult to progress despite coming from 2-0 behind to win 3-2 at home to Asteras Tripolis last Thursday.

Florian Kamberi's injury-time goal gave the Edinburgh side a narrow first-leg victory but they still face a tough test against Asteras, who finished fifth in the Greek top flight last season.

Asteras are 4-6 to bounce back with a win and 8-11 to go through, while Hibernian are 11-10 to advance.

Slovakian side Dunajska Streda have a mountain to climb after losing 3-1 at home to Dinamo Minsk last Thursday but there is every chance of them turning things around in Belarus.

The first leg was heavily influenced by a 39th-minute red card for Dunajska Streda left-back Milan Simcak, handing a big advantage to Dinamo, who scored two late goals.

However, the Slovaks won the shot count 16-10 and, if they show better discipline in the second leg, they can respond with a victory.

Recommendation
Dunajska Streda
2pts 5-2 bet365
