RB Leipzig is hosting the Rangers at Red Bull Arena in the first leg of the UEFA Europa League semifinals. Leipzig has lost their last game in Bundesliga, but they are still in great form, they are still scoring a lot of goals, and they are good enough to win this competition. Rangers are now on a 4-game winning streak, they are 6 points behind Celtic in the Championship Round, and they are playing solid soccer.

Leipzig has done a fantastic job after that sloppy start, and back then no one expected them to reach the Europa League semifinals. In Bundesliga, Leipzig is now in 4th place with 54 points, they have scored a fantastic 66 goals so far this season, while they have conceded 33 goals. In the Europa League, Nkunku is the leading goalscorer for Leipzig with 3 goals, while Forsberg has added 2 goals. There are no injuries in Leipzig as of right now. Leipzig has played the same opponent twice last week, and they have beaten them once while losing once as well. Leipzig is having a great season overall, they are in the DFB Pokal finals, and they are the favorites to win the Europa League.

Rangers are on a nice winning streak, and during this 4-game winning streak, the Rangers have scored 12 goals while conceding 3 goals. Rangers is probably the best team in Scotland, but they ended up 2nd in the regular season behind Celtic. The Rangers have conceded more goals than Celtic, 28 compared to Celtic’s 19 goals, and they are also weaker in the attacking end, but they are still pretty close to them in that Championship Round. In the Europa League quarterfinals, Rangers knocked out Braga despite losing the first leg. Tavernier is leading Rangers with 6 scored goals so far this season, while Morelos has added 4 goals. There are a few injuries in Rangers, including Morelos. Rangers are a solid team capable of scoring a lot, and they can defend well, but we will see what they can do against one of the best teams in Germany.

I think this is an intriguing matchup, and even though I give the full advantage to Leipzig, Rangers is a tough team, and they will be hard to beat. Leipzig does have more depth, they are playing in a stronger league, and as I’ve mentioned, they are the favorites to win this game.
