In this Europa League group, Betis is the closest to progressing to the next phase, but Rangers and Sparta Prague are only two points behind. Both teams would propel their chance for the knockout phase with a win in the upcoming tie. 

For Rangers, the most important in every season is to win the Scottish Premiership, so they can't be satisfied with eight points fewer than their biggest rival, Celtic. Rangers won five of the last six matches in all competitions. Last weekend, Rangers won 3-1 in the League Cup semifinal against Hearts. Philippe Clement's team dominated from the start, so it is no wonder they secured progress to the final. With another win, Rangers will have a lot of confidence ahead of the game versus Sparta Prague. 

Sparta Prague are playing well in the Czech league this season. They are first on the table in the national league with two points more than their arch-rival, Slavia. Still, Sparta Prague won only two of the previous four matches. Last weekend, Brian Priske's team won 2-0 at home against Bohemians. The home side had 67% ball possession and 19 shots on the goal, so Sparta Prague easily picked another victory. Although Sparta Prague won in that game, it was clear that they struggled a bit lately, so it is hard to anticipate a brilliant game versus Rangers. 

Rangers vs Sparta Prague pick: Rangers to win

Rangers and Sparta Prague had the previous h2h match about two weeks ago. That game finished with a 0-0. Still, if we go deeper into the stats, we can see that the Czech side was slightly better. At Ibrox Stadium, Rangers should be closer to the win, so that is the best betting option for this match.
