Hearts vs Rangers Prediction

For our Hearts vs Rangers prediction, we're opting for the Blues to win 2-1 in this Scottish Premier League encounter.

Hearts and Rangers square off at Tynecastle on Saturday afternoon with their Scottish Premiership fixture acting as a dress rehearsal for next week's Scottish Cup final. While Hearts have already sealed third position, runners-up Rangers are playing their final game before Wednesday's Europa League final against Eintracht Frankfurt.

Hearts have met Rangers three times this season, and those encounters did not go well for them; they managed just a draw in those three meetings, with two losses. It’s important to note that Hearts lost their last two games, and have no wins in three games. In contrast, Rangers have had a pretty good run recently; they have won seven of their last nine games, including all of their last three. Considering the form of both teams, we’re making the prediction that Rangers will win this match.

Although Rangers have seven wins in their last nine games, they haven’t really been able to shut out teams; the Gers kept just one clean sheet in their last eight games in all competitions. Conversely, Rangers have scored a lot of goals; as they found the net in their last four, and eight of their last nine games.

Both teams scored in six of Rangers’ last eight games. Similarly, Hearts have scored and conceded their fair share of goals recently; they scored in 12 of their last 13 games, whilst keeping just one clean sheet in their last seven games. Both teams scored in six of Hearts’ last seven games; with this in mind, we should expect goals at both ends.

A glance at their most recent six head to head meetings going back to December 2019 tells us that Hearts have won two of these games, with Rangers winning three and the number of drawn results standing at one. In all, 18 goals were yielded between them during those clashes, with four of them from The Jam Tarts and 14 created by The Gers. That is an average goals per game value of three.

For our Hearts vs Rangers prediction, we're opting for both teams to score.

Hearts vs Rangers Betting Tips

Hearts Team News

Robbie Neilson has acknowledged that Toby Sibbick will sit out this contest with the knee injury that he sustained on Wednesday. Stephen Kingsley is in line to return to the Hearts starting lineup, while Craig Gordon and John Souttar may also be brought back into the team. Further forward, Cameron Devlin and Ellis Simms could be restored to the midfield and attack respectively.

Rangers Team News

Van Bronckhorst will almost certainly rotate the majority of his Rangers squad, with potentially only the likes of Alex Lowry and Scott Wright retaining their places.

Youngsters Alex Devine and Charlie McCann could be given chances in the full-back roles, but Aaron Ramsey may be limited to game time from the bench. Ryan Jack may not be risked ahead of the Frankfurt game, with Kemar Roofe only deemed to be an outsider to feature in that showdown due to a knee injury.
