The Ibrox Stadium will be set alight on Thursday as Rangers play host to Lech Poznan on matchday two of the Europa League.

The hosts sit joint-top of Group D - alongside Benfica - having picked up a 2-0 win away to Standard Liege last week, while Lech Poznan fell to a 4-2 defeat at home to Benfica.

Rangers kept up their impressive form with another victory in the Scottish Premier League on Sunday, while their Polish counterparts needed to come from behind to salvage a point in a 1-1 draw with Cracovia in the Ekstraklasa.

Rangers vs Lech Poznan Prediction

Rangers have been one of the most in-form teams in all of Europe and Steven Gerrard deserves tremendous praise for his work in Glasgow.

Remarkably, the Gers have won 13 of their 15 matches in all competitions this season, drawing the other two, and they are currently setting the pace in the Scottish Premier League.

Poznan, on the other hand, have been disappointing and currently find themselves in 10th spot in their domestic league. They will have to significantly up their game if they are to earn anything from the Ibrox Stadium on Thursday.

This is, however, a tall order and it is hard to see anything other than a Rangers victory in this game.

Prediction: Rangers 2-0 Lech Poznan
