Rangers host Benfica at Ibrox this evening in the Europa League.

The sides played out a breathtaking draw in their first group stage meeting earlier this month, with Rangers denied a brilliant victory by Darwin Nunez in the dying stages in Portugal.

Tonight’s game will be key in deciding which team will top the group, with the pair currently level on seven points, both with two wins and a draw in their campaigns so far.
