Game info Rangers vs Liverpool


Still zero in the score, Rangers welcome Liverpool, this Wednesday, October 12. The match, which will be held at the Ibrox stadium in Glasgow, is part of the schedule for the fourth round of the Champions League group stage in its 2022/2023 edition. It's the first round of the second round. The kick-off is set for 19:00 UTC


How the Champions League 2022/2023 works?

UEFA, the entity that organizes the Champions League, has announced a profound change in the tournament. However, it will only start in the 2024/2025 season. In version 2022/2023, the regulation of the last editions was maintained. The tournament has 32 participants, who were divided into eight brackets in their group stage. They will face off on a round-trip basis. At the end of six rounds, the first two will advance to the title race. The third place will still have the chance to keep the international calendar, however, in another competition. It will be relegated to the Europa League, where it will enter the round of 16 stage.



Of the 32 teams playing in the Champions League, only three failed to score in the first round. In addition to Rangers, only Viktoria Plzen, from the Czech Republic, and Maccabi Haifa, from Israel, lost all three matches they played. In the specific case of the Scots, there was no surprise. They entered the dispute considered underdogs in the A bracket and confirmed on the four lines what was expected of them.


They didn't score a single goal. Little did they manage to create. Against Ajax, Rangers scored just one shot in the 4-0 defeat. Against Napoli, for whom they were beaten 3-0, they scored three shots. Against Liverpool, at Anfield Road, he maintained his trajectory of decreasing the goals conceded. Lost by 2 to 0. However, he only hit two shots in the duel.


In the Scottish Premiership, the situation is quite different. Shows technical advantage over almost all opponents. On Saturday, October 8, for the tenth round of the 2022/2023 version of the Premiership, at home, they thrashed St. Mirren by 4 to 0. Colak, at the fourth minute, and Tavernier, at the 30th minute, from a penalty, opened the advantage in the initial stage. In the second half, Colak, in the 28th minute, and Sakala, in the 46th minute, completed the service. It thus reached 22 points (seven wins, one draw and one defeat). It is in the runner-up of the tournament with two points behind in comparison with Celtic, leader.



Although the Premier League is still in its infancy, the possibility of a title for Liverpool has been reduced. On Sunday, October 9, the team saw its situation in the 2022/2023 version of the Premier League get even more complicated with the defeat, 3-2, to Arsenal, leaders of the competition, in a clash for the tenth round. The match was played at Emirates Stadium.


The hosts opened the scoring before the first minute was completed. Martinelli's try. Liverpool reacted and returned equal conditions on the scoreboard in the 34th minute. With a pass from Luis Diaz, Darwin Nunez scored. The script repeated itself. In the 50th minute, Saka put the Gunners ahead again. Shortly after the break, at eight minutes. Roberto Firmino scored Liverpool's second. He received assistance from Diogo Jota.


However, the third time, Liverpool were unable to give the change. He had his defense leaked for the third time in the 31st minute in a penalty kick performed by Saka. It ended up, therefore, stuck in the ten points (two wins, four draws and two defeats) falling to tenth position in the Premier League table, when considering the tie-breaking criteria. The gap with Arsenal rose to 14 points.
