Here is the latest form and team news on Rangers and RB Leipzig:
Rangers Form and Team News
Rangers could not repeat their Borussia Dortmund heroics against RB Leipzig, reluctant to push forward as they sat back and soaked the pressure from the home team. The tactic almost worked, coming undone by a single moment of brilliance from Angelino.
The Scots were able to deny the home team clear-cut chances at goal and will take some pride in stopping a usually rampant Leipzig side. They followed up the loss with a draw at Celtic, and they go into this return leg with confidence as only a one-goal margin separates both sides.
Alfredo Morelos, Ianis Hagi, and Filip Helander are out with injuries and may not feature for Rangers. Also, Leon Balogun may be unavailable for selection.
RB Leipzig Form and Team News
RB Leipzig uncharacteristically had a bad day in front of goal against Rangers, failing to create meaningful chances and taking none of the chances that came their way. They were eventually able to find a breakthrough through Angelino and hold a slender advantage which they can only hope to build on in Scotland.
The German side have been exceptional in away matches, and this could be a concern for their opponents. Their last loss away from home came in February against Bayern Munich, and they have won eight games on the bounce since, scoring 29 goals.
Ahead of their Bundesliga fixture before they travel to Scotland, RB Leipzig’s only absentee remains Amadou Haidara, still sidelined with an injury.
