UEFA CUP .........
GLASGOW RANGERS - FIORENTINA
Rangers have some severe injury/ suspension problems and could be without 7-9 squad players this evening, they will be especially short of options in midfield. However, they are very hard to beat at Ibrox, where they have recorded some fine European results. At least central defender Carlos Cuellar is fit and, Scotland's player of the year, will be given the task of stifling main visiting threat Adrian Mutu, who is back to his best and has been in stunning form this season, this will be a fascinating match up, between two players at the top of their game.
I like the draw, in a match where both will be happy with the result. Rangers are confident in their ability to snatch an away goal in Europe and have already progressed twice by that route, this campaign. The pitch is Glasgow is in very poor condition and will not be conducive to flowing football.
4.5 points draw 3.15 exchanges.
