Rangers vs Spartak Moscow
Rangers are doing well since the start of the competition. Steven Gerrard’s team is leading the group with 4 points won so far. The Scottish giants made a 2-2 draw against Villarreal in their first game, but after this enjoyed a 3-1 win at home against Rapid Wien. The Colombian striker Alfredo Morelos scored a brace for Brits, while James Tavernier added one more for the home team.
It’s really exciting to follow a legendary figure like Steven Gerrard in his first season as a manager. In the Scottish Premiership Rangers are currently 5th in the standings, trailing on 8 points behind the surprising leader Hearts. So far the Blues have a record of 5 wins, 2 draws and 2 defeats in the Scottish league. They are just 2 points behind the champion Celtic, who are currently 2nd.
Spartak Moscow is currently at the bottom of the group with just one point won so far. Spartak began their campaign with a loss against Rapid in Wien, which was followed by an exciting 3-3 draw against Villarreal at home. Spartak was very close to winning this game, but the veteran Santi Cazorla equalized with a penalty kick in the last seconds of the match. It was really disappointing for the Russian team to miss the win like this, but it happens in football. Now they will have another chance to impress.
