Despite the rest of Europe’s top leagues remaining on hiatus, Scotland’s newly formatted League Cup will begin this weekend, and it promises to excite, with newly promoted Rangers facing off against Motherwell at Fir Park. Rangers narrowly missed out on Scottish Cup glory last season, and they will be looking for another good run in the Cups this campaign, while Motherwell will also look to improve on their performance, which saw them exit at the 3rd round stage last season.

• 64% of Rangers matches ended in over 2.5 goals last campaign

• Motherwell last beat Rangers in December 2002

• Martyn Waghorn was in great form last campaign, netting an impressive 28 times in all competitions

Rangers New Hope

After their relegation in 2012, things looked bleak for Rangers, but 4 seasons on they have managed to claw their way back to the top division of Scottish football, and with their return to the summit, renewed optimism has flooded back into the club. Last season, Rangers enjoyed a great Scottish Cup run, beating great rivals Celtic in the Semi-Finals, only to narrowly miss out on the trophy itself, and they will want to enjoy similar success in this years newly formatted League Cup.

In Martyn Waghorn, Rangers have a truly talented striker who managed to find the net 28 times last season, and if you fancy him to strike again, you can back him as an anytime goal scorer with Betfred at 15/8. If its strike partner Kenny Miller, you fancy to find the net you can also back that at 13/8 with SkyBet

Motherwell’s Leaky Defence

Motherwell will be hoping for a better performance in this year’s competition, particularly as they only reached the 3rd round last season. Despite coming 5th in last seasons division, Motherwell registered a less than impressive goal difference of -16, with only Kilmarnock and Dundee conceding more than their 63 goals.

They will have to dramatically improve to keep out a strengthened Rangers, but if you feel Rangers will have just too much, you can back them to win by a margin of 2 at 9/2 with PaddyPower, or a margin of 3 or more with SkyBet at 5/1

Match Prediction

Matches played in July are always difficult to call, bit with Rangers on the up you’d have to fancy them to register a win in this group game. Motherwell had many issues at the back last season, and with Rangers fire power up front, it’s a tough ask for their defender to keep their attackers quite.
