Rangers are attempting to defend the Scottish Premiership this season, and so far things have gone well for Steven Gerrard’s squad, who currently top the table with 19 points from the opening eight games.
The Gers have not lost a match in the league since the second game when Dundee United came out on top, but they were able to quickly rebound from that defeat.
In the Europa League, the Scottish team have struggled, failing to pick up a win or score a goal in the opening two games, but they reacted well to the recent loss against Sparta Prague during their latest outing, against Hibernian.
The Hibees were undefeated heading into the fixture, but Gerrard’s men were able to come back from behind to win the game 2-1 with goals from Kemar Roofe and Alfredo Morelos.
They will now face the only remaining team in the division that have not lost a game in Hearts, who have been the surprise package so far this season after their promotion in 2020-21.
In the previous two meetings between the clubs, it was Hearts that came out on top, and they are results that Robbie Neilson will be pleased to see repeated.
His team have been brilliant in the league, having not lost yet, and a big part of that has been the defensive performances that they have brought.

The Jambos have kept four clean sheets in their last five matches and no team have conceded fewer goals than them, which is one of the reasons they currently sit in second place.
Hearts defeated Motherwell in their most recent fixture and once again it was Liam Boyce who was on target, with Stephen Kingsley rounding out a 2-0 victory.
Boyce has been one of the most dominant strikers in the Scottish Premiership this season, and he is currently the top scorer in the league with six goals, which could prove to be crucial this weekend
