Hearts and Rangers will battle for three points in a Scottish Premiership fixture on Sunday.

The hosts still find themselves in the title race and currently sit in third spot on 30 points, nine points behind defending champions Rangers. A win for them would cut down the gap to the summit and put them back in contention for an unlikely title tilt.

Hearts come into the game on the back of a 1-0 away win over Livingston last weekend. Liam Boyce scored the winning goal four minutes into the second half.

Rangers settled for a share of the spoils in a 1-1 draw with Lyon in the UEFA Europa League. Scott Wright's first-half strike for the Glasgow side was canceled out by Calvin Bassey's 49th-minute own goal.

Hearts vs Rangers Prediction

Rangers are favorites for the game but the capital side will be wary of the threat posed by Hearts. The hosts are capable of hurting their opponents if given the opportunity and are likely to go all out for the win.

Both sides have enough quality to find the back of the net but we are backing the visitors to narrowly edge the game with a win.

Prediction: Hearts 1-2 Rangers
