With European football finally back underway, Rangers find themselves with some work to do in the second-leg of their Europa League last-16 match against Bayer Leverkusen.

Host commentator

A lot of eyes will be on Chelsea target Kai Havertz tonight. The 21-year-old could soon be joining the Blues for £75million, however his manager Peter Bosz says ‘he’s 100 per cent still fighting for Leverkusen.’

The exciting German got one of the goals in the first-leg, and you can expect him to be dangerous again this evening.

Whoever comes out on top on aggregate this evening will progress to the Europa League quarter-finals. 

Steven Gerrard’s men have a lot of work to do though, as they lost the first-leg 3-1 at Ibrox. They need to score at least three tonight to have any chance of going through, as the Germans have the advantage of three away-goals.
