RB Leipzig vs Rangers: TV channel, live stream, kick-off time, team news for BIG Europa League semi-final tie

RANGERS are THREE matches away from achieving European glory for the first time since 1972 – but they have to overcome the hurdle of RB Leipzig beforehand.

The Gers needed extra-time to scrape a 3-2 aggregate win over Portuguese side Braga in the quarter-finals.


And they did it the hard way by overturning an initial one goal deficit from the first leg.

However, German outfit RB Leipzig are set to be a completely different proposition for Rangers to have to deal with.

Especially as the Bundesliga side have only lost two in their last 16 games across all competitions.
