class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>Having struggled for cutting edge so far this season, Al Hain-Cole expects Gerrard's men to endure another frustrating 90 minutes against the Sky Blue
Rangers will be aiming to mount a comeback when they welcome Malmo to Ibrox in Tuesday’s Champions League qualifier.
Steven Gerrard’s side went down 2-1 in the away leg in Sweden, with Steven Davis pulling one back late on to halve the deficit.
Rangers vs Malmo latest odds
While away goals no longer count for double, Rangers are available at 11/20 (1.55) with bet365 to at least take this game into extra-time by coming out on top in front of their own fans.
Malmo have now gone 11 Champions League qualifiers without defeat and are priced at 19/4 (5.75) to progress to the play-off round by pulling off a win in Glasgow.
Each of the visitors’ last three away matches in this competition have resulted in draws, and there are odds of 14/5 (3.80) on offer for them to hold out for another stalemate in this one.

Rangers vs Malmo team news
Alfredo Morelos will lead the line after returning to action since the first leg, although Ryan Jack is injured and Kemar Roofe is unavailable due to personal reasons.
Jonas Knudsen and Ola Toivonen remain the only injury absentees for the visitors, who are likely to stick with the same line-up that emerged victorious at the Eleda Stadion.
Rangers vs Malmo preview
While Morelos’ return is a major boost for a Gers side that struggled for cutting edge in the away leg, he was unable to come up with the goods in Saturday’s frustrating 1-0 defeat against Dundee United – their first SPL loss in 41 fixtures.
That game was hardly ideal preparation for this crucial game against Jon Dahl Tomasson’s team, who are likely to also sit deep and defend as they aim to protect their first-leg lead.
Having kept four consecutive clean sheets in the league and let in just three goals in their last five Champions League matches on the road, the Swedish champions will definitely back themselves to stifle their out-of-form opponents.
Rangers vs Malmo tips & predictions
All in all, even money (2.00) seems like good value on Malmo ensuring under 2.5 goals against a Rangers side that are yet to hit top gear this season.
