Dortmund vs Rangers Betting Tips

The Europa League is back, and it welcomes more competitions as some top clubs surprisingly failed to qualify for the Champions League, and as a result, they dropped to the Europa League. The German giants Borussia Dortmund, are one of those big teams to play in this competition. 

Dortmund welcomes Rangers to their stadium for the first leg of their round 16 Europa League quarter-finals game. Dortmund hasn’t featured in this competition in recent seasons, and they are certainly one of the favorites to lift the trophy.

Rangers lost their manager Steven Gerard to Aston Villa this season, but that has put a slight dent in their form. Though they are sitting second in their domestic league, only a point separates them from the first position. 

While both teams are sitting at the second position in their respective leagues, would Rangers surprise the footballing world and dump Dortmund out very quickly in the UEL? We don’t know yet, but here are our tips for this match. 

Dortmund Form and Team News

Dortmund has been in mixed form in their recent games, which shows a worrying sign. They have won 3 of their last 5 games in all competitions and lost 2. Though they are sitting second in Bundesliga, they are still far off the first place with a 6 points gap. 

However, Dortmund matches haven’t been goal-shy as it seems like which team would outscore each other. They have scored 13 goals in their last 5 games in all competitions and conceded 10.

For the team news, Dortmund would be without some players for this clash, and they are Haaland E (Hip Injury), Meunier T (Injury), Morey Bauza M (Knee Injury), and Wolf M (Knee Injury).

Rangers Form and Team News

Rangers were last year’s Scottish Premiership League champions, and they fashionably won the league. They are not doing too bad this season but have fallen short of their set standards last season. 

The Scottish champions have won 3 of their last 5 games in all competitions, drawn 1 and lost 1. In this run of games, they have scored 13 goals and conceded 6. 

For the team news, Rangers will be without some players due to injury and sickness, and they are Hagi I (Injury), Jack R (Injury), and Ofoborh N, the Nigerian suffering a heart problem.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Dortmund looks like the superior team going into the clash, and it isn’t hard to see why this is so. In terms of squad quality, they are very superior to Rangers. Also, Dortmund is already having a bad season in the European club competition stage, and winning this trophy can mean success on the club level. 

Rangers were are a shadow of what they were last season when they clashed with Celtic as they were beaten 3-0. This is a call for concern on how they match up against top teams. 

Below are our tips for this game.

Tip 1: Dortmund to Win

Dortmund crashed out of the Champions League due to numerous squad injuries. However, even though some of their key players might be missing this game due to injury, it wasn’t as bad as before. 

Rangers were a team to beat last season, but they haven’t been convincing in the top stage as they have only won 1 of their last 3 games in the Europa league (drawn 1 and lost 1). 

The last time these two teams met was in 1998, and Dortmund won, but that stats are not applicable at this point as there have been significant changes in club and squad depths.

For Dortmund to win this game, the odds are 1.36.

Tip 2: Dortmund Over 1.5 Goals

Even not in their best of forms, Borussia Dortmund has always managed to score goals. We were tempted to go with the over 2.5 goals option, but we think Rangers would have a defensive setup. 

Dortmund has scored 2+ goals in 4 of their last 5 games in all competitions. It doesn’t matter if they won or lost the match; they always strive to score goals.

For Dortmund to score 2+ goals, the odds are 1.40 at the Casumo sportsbook.


While this isn’t the most interesting UEL clash, we think it will be exciting to watch. Dortmund is currently superior to Rangers in terms of squad quality, and we don’t think they’d struggle against Rangers.

Rangers haven’t been convincing against top teams in Europe and Scotland as they have lost heavily and failed to beat some.
