Hamilton Academical is hosting Rangers at New Douglas Park in round 6 in the Scottish Premiership.
Hamilton is struggling in the Premiership, and of the 4 games they played, Hamilton has 3 losses and only 1 win, alongside 7 conceded goals, and only 2 scored goals. With only 3 points, Hamilton is in 9th place in the standings, the spot that will take them into the relegation playoffs. In their latest Premiership game against Motherwell on the road, Hamilton has had only 33% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and low 57% of the correct passes. This was a tight game, and Hamilton was defending well, and their moment came in the 86th minute when Hamilton scored a winning goal. The final score was 0-1 for Hamilton. Martin and Odofin have each scored 1 goal for Hamilton so far this season. Easton is the only injured player for Hamilton at the moment. Hamilton barely escaped the relegation zone last season, and judging by the start of this new season, the things won’t be much different for Hamilton. There are a few weaker teams in the Premiership than Hamilton, but Hamilton is not doing well on either end of the field, and once again, Hamilton will be fighting for their Premiership lives.
Rangers have played 5 games in the Premiership this season, and they are still undefeated. Rangers have also played in the Europa League against Leverkusen, and they have lost that match 1-0. With 13 points, 9 scored goals, and still 0 conceded goals, Rangers is at the top of the standings. After falling behind Celtic last season, being at the top must be refreshing for Rangers. In their latest Premiership game against Kilmarnock at home, Rangers was dominant with 75% of ball possession, 10 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, 5 big chances created, and solid 87% of the correct passes. It took a while for Rangers to score a goal, but they made it happen in the 50th minute, and once again in the 77th minute. Rangers have won this game 2-0. Kent is the leading goalscorer for Rangers with 3 goals, while Morelos added 2 goals. Katic, Defoe, Aribo, and Balogun are all injured, and none of them will be playing in this game. Rangers will be playing in the Europa League this season as well, but the date of their games is still unknown. As far as the Premiership goes, Rangers are at the top right now, and if they can continue playing this well, they just might stay there for a while.
The trends are heavily on the Rangers’ side. Hamilton is a weak team that barely has any offense, and their defense is bad, while Rangers are still undefeated in the Premiership, and they haven’t conceded a goal yet this season. The difference in the quality is massive, and I see Rangers staying undefeated after this match as well.
