Has been a fairly serene route through to the third round of qualifying for Maribor, who have yet to concede en route to their tie against Rangers. Maribor have played four European ties and two league games this season and have yet to concede a goal. That's six competitive game without losing a goal now - four in Europe. The Purple have been the major force in Slovenian football over the past 10 years. Between 2010 and 2015, they picked up five successive league titles and one domestic treble, which came in 2012-13. Scottish opponents five times in the past 17 years. They boast an impressive record, too, and are unbeaten there in their previous four trips Rangers have been drawn to face Slovenian side Maribor in the Europa League third qualifying round. Maribor have triumphed on their last four visits to Scotland, knocking out Gers, Hibs, Celtic and Aberdeen.
The Rangers Rangers are not back to the European top for a long time yet. Even series champion Celtic Glasgow gets his limits shown on an international stage year after year. And yet, you can call the Scottish league over the Slovenian as the stronger. After the Glasgow Rangers embarrassed themselves last year in the first round of qualifying for the Europa League with the departure of Progres Niederkorn from Luxembourg to the bones, the international competition for the Scottish traditional club is to be arrested this season.
Nowadays Rangers look good but would not say we can trust them blindly. Return leg in Georgia against Chikhura and Osijek showed some weakness and limits of Gerrard boys. Against well defending but not only focus in a back team Glasgow may suffer during long 90 minutes of the game. I see two nice bets for upcoming fixture, for more greedy Less than 3 goals and 10 corners but more safe max 3 goals and max 10 corners is very safe position and pick of the day for me. Maribor just do not rely on corners, since they start the new season don't take many, whilst Rangers also should not take much as they used to take once in occasion on mesure they straight against well organised team, last tie vs Aberdeen may to take as a good example.
