Rangers vs PSV: prediction for the Champions League match
Rangers won the most of their recent games - team's only defeat is a first leg of the Champions League qualifier to Union SG (0:2). But in the reserve fixture the White-Blues secured a 3:0 victory and advanced into the final qualifying round.
All other matches were won by Giovanni van Bronckhorst's men. Aside from the battle against Union, club also win three games in the domestic league and rose to the top of the standings.
PSV are currently on a seven-game unbeaten run. During that period, Eindhoven team played only one draw - in the Champions League qualifier against Monaco (1:1). Ruud van Nistelrooy's men have won all other matches, including the reverse fixture against Monegasques (3:2).

We will see a battle between two worthy opponents - both play in European competitions quite regularly. Rangers even managed to reach the Europa League final in the previous season. Both opponents have won their recent matches, so we are expecting a high-scoring game. We think that teams will be able to score more than two goals today.
Our prediction - total over 2.5 goals
We don't think that teams will decide a winner in the first leg. Opponents will try to put up a cautious performance, PSV and Rangers are among the top teams in their respective leagues, so they will probably try to save the energy for the league matches.
Our second bet is on a draw
