Rangers hosts RB Leipzig at the Ibrox in a second leg from the Europa League 1/2-finals on Thursday. It’s time to preview this game in our football prediction site. Here we go!
RB Leipzig won the first game in Germany, but the tie is not over just yet. The Red Bulls have an advantage of just one goal after a 1-0 win at the Red Bull Arena. It means Rangers are still enjoying some solid chances to reach the final in Sevilla. They need just one goal to equalise the aggregate score.
We can say Leipzig had a little bit of luck in the first leg as they scored their winner just five minutes before the end. It was Angelino who put the ball behind Allan McGregor’s back five minutes before the end. It was disappointing for Rangers to lose like that, but now they have the chance to bounce back on home soil. The Scottish team has amazing fans so the atmosphere won’t be easy for the visiting Germans.
Maybe Rangers’ manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst would make some changes in his line-up for the second 1/2-finals. The Zambian striker Fashion Sakala started from the bench in the first leg, but he could start in the second one.
Meanwhile RB Leipzig suffered a loss in their last Bundesliga game in the weekend. Domenico Tedesco’s team had a visit to Borussia M’gladbach, but the match ended with a 3-1 win for the hosts. Leipzig’s star Christopher Nkunku scored his 31th goal in all competitions for the season, but it was far from enough for his team.
That’s what our football prediction site can tell you about the Europa League second 1/2-final between Rangers and RB Leipzig. The Scottish team will fight to reach the final, but Leipzig remains a slight favorite. They have one goal advantage so let’s see if they can use it.
