Scottish Premiership champions Rangers are 51.00 to win the Europa League and kick off their Group A campaign with a clash against French side Lyon.

Rangers are 2.6 to win and with Brondby and Sparta Prague also in their group, will hope to get off to a flying start.

Steven Gerrard’s side are 3.25 second favourites to top the group behind 1.91 priced Lyon.

Rangers head into this clash on the back of a 2-1 SPL win at St Johnstone, having had to come from behind with second-half goals from Kemar Roofe and James Tavernier.

Peter Bosz’s side have had a tough start to the new Ligue 1 season, winning just two of their opening five games and conceding three times in two of those outings.

They finished fourth last season and with Memphis Depay leaving for Barcelona and Maxwel Cornet joining Burnley, there appears to have been an obvious drop off in form.

Lyon, 26.00 to claim the Europa League, are 2.6 to win the game while the draw is on offer at 3.4.

Rangers will no doubt be wary of Lyon striker Moussa Dembele, who is their top scorer this season. Dembele tormented Rangers in his time with Celtic and is 2.64 to score at any time.

Verdict

These two clubs are evenly matched so we expect a draw in Glasgow.
