Glasgow Rangers VS Valencia match analysis

I just can't help my feeling which is telling me that Valencia is much better team than their hosts today and will run out as victors from this game. Scottish club and country football is in downtrend for years and that has been shown by both clubs and country performances. Rangers is playing CL just due to their automatic qualification and I just wonder would they be here if they needed to qualify. Just look at Celtic and their attempts to enter CL and afterwards EL, failed in both rather convincingly. There wouldn't be much difference if Rangers were in the place of Celtic in my opinion. OK, the results were very good for Rangers so far drawing away @Man.Utd and beating Bursaspor 1-0 @home but Man.Utd isn't the same team that used to be and Bursaspor is playing their debut season in CL and Rangers somehow managed to use that in their narrow win. Valencia is playing very well this season and proving that they are a very good side even without Villa and Silva. They've had an easy and comfortable win in the first round in Turkey against Bursaspor but than came the unlucky defeat at home against Man.Utd where they deserved much more out of the game and have been the better side. Now they find themselves on 3rd place in the table knowing that if they win here they would be very close to qualify with 3 games to go and 2 of those at home against Rangers and Bursaspor. Valencia has more depth and quality in their team and should control this match with the likes of Soldado, Albelda, Mata and Aduriz. The later 2 have been rested agains Barca at the weekend playing only 30 minutes or so. It was clear that coach Emery has been focused to this game as well and knows the importance of the match against Rangers and that's why he rotated a bit in the previous league game. There are some missings in both sides but as I said Valencia has more depth in their squad and expect them to win this game cause the quality is on their side.
