Points and prize money would not be out of place though.
Can Rangers pull off a shock in Seville?
Let’s go into this by looking at the positives. Rangers are unbeaten away from home in the Champions League this season. Seville have already qualified for the last 16 of the tournament.
In these circumstances, is it so unreasonable to believe that Rangers can take something from the game?
The expectations placed on Rangers when they play at home in the Champions League are at odds with how Walter Smith would rather set his team out. Smith knows the limitations of his squad and when allowed, is usually very good at making them hard to beat.
There is a thought that Rangers should go for the win as they have nothing to lose. Sometimes winning takes brains though and Rangers would be advised to keep it tight before they try to secure the points.
Freddy Kanoute is tipped to be missing for the Spanish side. Fans in the UK will know all about Kanoute and the striker was one of the goalscorer’s at Ibrox earlier in the campaign.
Seville have a clutch of quality in their squad which should see a more than able replacement come in but a star man being absent is a boost to any opposition.
Kris Boyd picked up an injury on Saturday which may prevent boss Walter Smith having the striker at his disposal.
That is not to say that Boyd would have been involved from the start as the striker has rarely featured in the Champions League. The previous match against Stuttgart was the striker’s first start in Europe’s top competition.
The striker’s future may be in doubt but the lure of Champions League football is hardly one of the reasons he can cite for wanting to stay at the club. Thankfully for Rangers fans, the lure of being the SPL top striker and scoring for the club he loves will probably see Boyd want to remain at Ibrox.
