RANGERS are hoping to overturn a one goal deficit when they welcome RB Leipzig to the Ibrox Stadium TONIGHT in their Europa League semi-final encounter.

A sensational 85th minute volley from RB Leipzig full-back Angelino was enough for the Bundesliga club to see out a 1-0 in Germany.

West Ham or Eintracht Frankfurt await in the final.

    Minutes silence

    There will be a minutes silence before tonight's game for Rangers kit man legend Jimmy Bell.

    James Tavernier had this to say on Twitter:

    Although he was officially a “Kitman”. He was much much more than that. Few people are synonymous with a football club in the modern day era. He was at Ibrox for longer than I have been alive.

    Tavernier interview

    On Tavernier's chance to become the top scorer in the competition, he said it's something he'll look back on later on in his life.

    He told BT Sport: “I think it’s something that I will look back on.

    “But it’s about helping the team the best way possible.

    “I will keep trying my best to arrive at that back post.”

    No common ground

    The previous leg was the first time Rangers have met RB Leipzig in the short history of the German side, but this is the first time the Scottish side have hosted Leipzig.

    The Gers are winless in their last three home games against German Opposition, but do have one previous win under their belt as they beat Werder Bremen at home in 2008.

    Leipzig dangermen

    Domenico Tedesco has put out a very attacking side, with Poulsen, Nkunku, and Dani Olmo as a driving force.

    Nkunku is Leipzig's joint top European scorer with Timo Werner on 11 goals, 10 of them have come in this campaign, leaving only Karim Benzema, Robert Lewandowski and Sebastian Haller with more goals than the Frenchman.

    Tav the man

    Only Al Musrati (86) has won possession more times than James Tavernier (83) in the Europa League his season.

    The English right back is also the competitions joint top scorer.

    This is truly a golden generation for English right backs.

    No Kemar Roofe

    No Kemar Roofe is a huge blow for Rangers.

    It is the same team as last week for Rangers, as boss Van Bronckhorst has shown faith in Joe Aribo to lead the line once more.

    Aaron Ramsey is fit enough to make the bench, and he could prove to be pivotal if the Gers are to go on and win this tie.

    Leipzig team news

    Gulacsi will be expected to keep his place in goal, with Willi Orban returning to the defence alongside Gvardiol, who has been a target for Chelsea and Thomas Tuchel.

    Goal scorer Angelino will continue at full back, and Christopher Nkunku will likely be the frontman tonight.

    Andre Silva could be in the starting line-up after he was subbed on in the previous leg.

    The Glaswegian side still without Alfredo Morelos, Fil Helander and Ianis Hagi, however, Aaron Ramsey and Kemar Roofe could be fit for a return. 

    Ryan Kent will be expected to continue on the left hand side after his great performance in the first leg, with Captain James Tavernier playing a key role as ever.
