Rangers vs Celtic Betting Preview

The first game of 2023 will be an Old Firm derby, full of energy amid celebrations for the new year ahead. Rangers vs Celtic is a clash between the most decorated football teams in Scotland, aiming to fight for their path to glory. Michael Beale is ready to coach his team in front of fully-loaded Ibrox, in his first Scottish Derby, since leaving England and Queen’s Park Rangers to move north. His team is currently in a nine-point deficit in the standings , meaning that this much is his only chance to be back on track.

Venue: Ibrox Stadium, Glasgow

The two teams face each other in the shadow of Celtic’s dominant performance in the first round. Beale’s four games in charge are something to brag about, as the English coach managed to win most of them easily, except the 2-3 against Aberdeen, in a late drama fixture. Morelos scored in Wednesday’s clash against Aberdeen, but we are not so sure about his readiness, due to a hamstring strain.

The visitors beat the then Van Bronckhorst side 4-0, making a statement about their form, which is still spectacular. Ange Postekoglou’s team can’t catch a break, being currently on a twelve-game winning streak, scoring a lot, especially now that they are fully rested. These new levels of consistency make them relentless, as we all saw in mid-week’s win against Hibernian (0-4). The Japanese forefront is a very interesting element. Daizen Maeda provides for his team, but the real deal is Kyogo Furuhashi, who is in extraordinary form recently, as he scored five goals in his last three games.

It would be easy to say that both teams have the ability to score much, but Postecoglou has so many game-changing options available, that could easily lead the Hoops to a winning escape. Rangers have no injury problems and would prefer to begin the match in full action, trying to score early, at a point in time when the spectators’ enthusiasm will be a plus.
