Rangers have been left without a manager at an important stage of the 2021-22 football season, with Steven Gerrard unable to pass up the opportunity to take charge at Aston Villa. It means that the champions of Scotland are looking for a replacement as they prepare to clash with Czech opposition at Ibrox in this crunch clash.

The Gers sit level on points with their opponents after four games played. Lyon are already through although second spot is truly up for grabs and we’re expecting a tight match between evenly-matched sides. The reverse fixture ended in a 1-0 win for Sparta Prague although Rangers have since rallied to land four points against Brondby.

Ianis Hagi’s late equaliser sealed a point in Denmark in the previous clash and it appears as though Giovanni van Bronckhorst will potentially come in to replace Gerrard ahead of this clash. The team are faring well at the top of the Scottish Premiership and they have made their home ground a fortress.

As for Sparta, they will be largely content with a draw considering Brondby lie in wait in their final game and this game ending all square would mean the Czech side are firmly in the box seat to go through considering they would have a favourable head-to-head record.
