Rangers and RB Leipzig are clashing at Ibrox in the second leg of the UEFA Europa League semifinals. Rangers have lost the title race in the Scottish Premiership, but they still have a chance in the Europa League. Leipzig has lost their last game in Bundesliga, but I don’t think they are too concerned about that since they are playing in the Europa League semifinals.

Rangers are without a win in their last 2 games, and their latest game has ended in a draw against Celtic in the Premiership Championship Round. In the first leg of this matchup, Rangers were under a lot of pressure, they haven’t done much in the attacking end, but they were defending well, and because of that Rangers have lost only 1-0. Tavernier is the leading goalscorer for Rangers in the Europa League so far this season, while Morelos has added 4 goals. There are a few injuries in Rangers, but overall, they are in good shape. I think Rangers is a good team, they have been a bit sloppy lately, especially after Gerrard left, but they are still a very good team capable of scoring goals, especially at home.

As I’ve mentioned, Leipzig has lost their last Bundesliga game, but they are still in the top 5, and they are still only 1 point away from the Champions League spot. When it comes to scoring goals, Leipzig has been among the best in the league this season with 67 scored goals, and their defense has stabilized. If Leipzig can win the Europa League, that will be their first major European trophy, and they deserve it. Same as in Bundesliga, Nkunku is the leading goalscorer for Leipzig in the Europa League as well with 3 scored goals, while Forsberg has added 2 goals. The good news is Leipzig is healthy, and despite that loss to M’gladbach this past weekend, they are still in good form. I like Leipzig, I think they have a bright future, and I would love for them to win the Europa League this season, and to qualify for the Champions League.

Leipzig has beaten Rangers twice so far, and I think they will get another win here as well. Rangers is a good team, but they are under pressure here, and they have a tough team to beat. I think this might go the same way as the first leg, but I see Leipzig winning this one.
