With a 3-1 aggregate advantage from their first leg tie before March's suspension, Bayer Leverkusen look to finish the job against Rangers on Thursday.

Peter Bosz's side haven't played competitively for a month – since their 4-2 DFB-Pokal Final defeat by Bayern. However, they'll be confident of easing to victory against Steven Gerrard's men, who have looked impressive in recent friendlies. Who wins here? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Rangers Betting Tips

As previously mentioned, Rangers have been in supreme form post-lockdown – winning all five of their friendly fixtures.

They returned on July 16 with a 2-0 win over Champions League side Lyon, before following that up with victory over Nice. Wins over Motherwell (4-0), Coventry (2-0) and lastly Aberdeen (1-0) in the weeks that have followed mean Rangers have returned to full match sharpness ahead of this one.

Whether they can translate their friendly success against tough opposition here, and overturn a two-goal deficit, is the question. Goals from Kai Havertz, Charles Aranguiz and a late finish by substitute Leon Bailey sunk them at Ibrox on March 12.

They must start fast and with purpose on this occasion, otherwise a place in the Europa League quarter-finals will pass them by.

Watch out for transfer-linked Havertz, whose long-term future remains a doubt as Europe's top brass circle for his signature. The 21-year-old attacking playmaker has 17 goals and nine assists (all competitions) this term and will expect further goal contributions here.

Rangers have quality attacking threats of their own too, including exciting youngster Ianis Hagi and former Liverpool winger Ryan Kent. This should be interesting.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Rangers Correct Score Predictions

Rangers are good, but unfortunately for them, I don't see them managing to overturn this deficit without conceding – at the very least. Leverkusen are bracing themselves for a summer of key departures so the Europa League represents their big opportunity at silverware. I'm backing Leverkusen to prevail, though Rangers should make it difficult.
