Rangers bring deficit to Glasgow after Leipzig loss!

Rangers will have to come from behind to reach the Europa League final after losing 1-0 at the Red Bull Arena
to an agonisingly late RB Leipzig strike.
but Gers goalkeeper Allan McGregor did not have to make a serious save until shortly after the break, when Christopher Nkunku put him to the test.

After the break, Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team came out of their shell a little more,
but they also stayed defensively disciplined for the most part until Angelino,

a Spanish winger, scored the winner with five minutes remaining.

Rangers came back from a 1-0 first-leg
loss to Braga in the last round and will be hoping for another chaotic night at Ibrox to get them to their first European final in 14 years.

First, there’s the matter of an Old Firm match, with Rangers visiting Celtic Park on Sunday six points behind Premiership leaders
Celtic with four games remaining and a goal differential advantage.
As a result, it’s a crucial week for the Gers, who put in yet another gutsy performance in Europe.

With forwards Alfredo Morelos and Kemar Roofe still out injured,


Van Bronckhorst had to improvise once more, starting Stephen Wright up front with Ryan Kent in what appeared to be a 5-3-2 system with midfielder John Lundstram shifted back.
RB Leipzig head Domenico Tedesco was without midfielder Kevin Kampl and defenders Willi Orban and Mohamed Simakan due to suspension.
Joe Aribo, Kent, Lundstram, Ryan Jack, and Calvin Bassey all returned for the Govan side.
Nkunku, the star striker, led the line, followed by Spain’s Dani Olmo and Hungary’s Dominik Szoboszlai.
Rangers fans could be found in almost every corner of the stadium,
contributing to a fantastic atmosphere,
but they had to watch their team chase shadows in the outset.

When Nkunku couldn’t get away from Gers defender Connor Goldson,
he claimed a penalty, which turned down by French referee Benoit Bastien.

The Light Blues had little reprieve, as Bassey blocked a goal-bound shot from Nkunku in the 16th minute, before Goldson,
with equal desperation, prevented Szoboszlai’s shot from bothering McGregor.
Goldson headed Borna Barisic’s delivery over the bar with his first corner just before the half-hour mark,

but Rangers were soon defending again, with skipper James Tavernier stepping in the way of a fantastic strike from Angelino.

Watch the winning goal of Leipzig today!!!


Rangers’ first meaningful chance came at the opening of the second half,
when Kent worked some space in the RB Leipzig box and fizzed the ball across the face of skipper Peter Gulacsi’s goal, but no one was there to grab it.

Tavernier’s strike was deflect for a corner, but Goldson headed it over once more.
At the other end, McGregor saved a shot from Nkunku,
reminding the Govan players of the danger they face at home.
Rangers were once again on the back foot as RB Leipzig gained control, but the Ibrox side’s defence stood firm.
After 68 minutes, Fashion Sakala came in to replace Wright and shifted to the centre-forward position, but the visitors should have been in front moments later.
