Borussia Dortmund vs Rangers Betting Tips 17/02/2022

Benson Chikezie, Senior Author

Germany’s Borussia Dortmund will host Scottish Side Rangers at the Signal Iduna Park in the Europa League Round of 16 fixture slated for the 17th of February (23:15 IST 17/2/22).

Dortmund continue their search for European glory in UEFA’s second-tier competition. The game against Rangers is a chance for a fresh start after crashing out of the UCL group stages. Rangers, on their part, will hope to stun the home team in their backyard and go back home to Scotland with a favorable result.

Teams Status

Here is the latest on the form and team news of both clubs:

Borussia Dortmund Form and Team News

Borussia Dortmund, or die Borussen as they are fondly known in Germany, have suffered mixed fortunes on the field of play in recent weeks. Over their last 5 games in all competitions, they have won 3 and lost 2 and currently sit second on the Bundesliga standings, 6 points behind Bayern Munich.

In 22 league games, they have won 15, drawn 1, and lost 6, scoring 57 goals and conceding 36. They have fared far worse in Europe, as they could not progress to the Round of 16 in the Champions League after 3 wins and 3 losses in 6 games. They have scored 10 goals in this year’s European campaign and shipped another 11, with captain Marco Reus as their top scorer with 3 goals and 1 assist.

For Dortmund’s team news, they will most likely be unable to call up Erling Haaland, Thomas Meunier, Morey Bauza, and Wolf Marius, as all four players are currently injured.

Rangers Form and Team News

Scottish Champions Rangers are locked in a title race with fierce rivals Celtic in the Scottish Premiership. They lie one point behind their rivals, having won 19, drawn 5, and lost 2 of their 26 league games thus far. They have scored 55 goals and conceded 21, and they appear to be in good form at the moment, with 3 straight wins after a loss and a draw in their last 5 games.

Rangers finished 2nd in their Europa League group and had a somewhat poor showing, with 2 wins, 2 draws, and 2 losses in 6 games. They scored only 6 goals throughout the group stages and conceded 5. Colombian international Alfredo Morelos is their leading goalscorer with 2 goals.

Rangers do not have too many injuries to concern themselves with at the moment, according to their team news. However, midfielder Hagi Ianis is likely to miss the encounter as he is currently injured. Oforborh Nnamdi and Jack Ryan will also miss the game with a heart problem and an injury, respectively.

Tipster’s Angle

Borussia Dortmund are reeling from their Champions League exit and will fancy their chances of taking the Europa League trophy home come May. Rangers may be a strong side in Scotland, even Scottish champions, but Dortmund have a ridiculous amount of quality at their disposal and 70,000 yellow vests behind them.

Both sides have already met 6 times in European competition, although in the 90s and 80s. Rangers won 2 of those encounters, Dortmund won 1, and the rest were draws. Here are our tips for this fixture:

Tip: Total Goals Over 2.5 @ 1.638

Borussia Dortmund are in great scoring form in all competitions, scoring at least 1 goal in their last 15 games in all competitions. Only once was the total number of goals in those games less than 2.5 goals— in the 1-1 draw against Bochum.

Rangers have scored at least once in 4 of their 6 Europa League games this season. Both teams have not recently lacked goals, even in defeat, so we expect a flurry of goals in this encounter. Over 2.5 goals is on the Paripesa sportsbook at 1.638 odds.

Tip: Borussia Dortmund To Win @ 1.40 Odds

Dortmund play at home, and they have an above-average home record of 7 wins and 3 losses in their last 10 home games. A lot is at stake in this encounter, and the pressure is on the German side to put in a good shift and win the match.

Rangers have shown strengths going forward this season and will pose a real threat to BVB. Dortmund will miss Haaland, but we expect them to win in this meeting. Dortmund to win is available on the Parimatch sportsbook at 1.40 odds.


Borussia Dortmund versus Rangers FC may not be an easy win as described on paper for the German side. We expect a good game of football from both sides, and most likely, a victory for Borussia Dortmund.
