Rangers vs Progres Niederkorn Preview, Predicted Lineup, Key Players And Odds

Rangers had a very narrow win over Progres Niederkorn in the Europa League qualifier and Pedro Caixinha will have his task cut out when they face the Luxembourg side in the second leg of the Europa League.

Caixinha has been on a signing spree as the Portuguese manager has made as many as eight signings in this summer to give a completely new makeover to the Scottish side. Kenny Miller’s first-half strike was enough to hand Caixinha a winning start to his maiden Europa League campaign for the Scottish giants and the Scottish side would be hoping to have an easy path to the next round.

Rangers go into the game with the advantage of a solitary goal but the home side is expected to put some pressure as they will have the chance to play before their supporters. Over 50000 fans made their ways to the Ibrox to witness Rangers’ first European game in the last few years.

Team news and Predicted Lineups


Caixinha is expected to name a strong lineup as any mishap in this game would end their chance to feature in the main round of the Europa League. Caixinha included five new signings in the starting lineup of the last leg and it is understood we could see some more new faces in the second leg.

Carlos Pena and Eduardo Herrera didn’t feature in the first leg and a double introduction might be in Caixinha’s mind. Bruno Alves has joined the Scottish giants after his international duty from Confederations Cup but Caixinha is unlikely to risk him.

Foderingham, Wallace, Cardoso, Bates, Tavernier, Dalcio, Jack, Pena, Miller, Kranjcar, Herrera

Progres Niederkorn

Paolo Amodio is set to name an unchanged side that lost 1-0 to the Rangers.

Flauss; Lafon, Karayer, Ferino, Matias; Schneider, Watzka, Thill, Thill; Karapetian, Francoise

Key Players


Kenny Miller

The 37-year-old is expected to be in the starting lineup after claiming the winner in the last leg. He was one of the few shining lights in the last leg and despite his age, he continues to be very productive for his side.

Caixinha would be relying on him heavily although we can see some first team action from new arrival Eduardo Herrera.

Progres Niederkorn

Olivier Thill

Much would be expected from young midfielder Olivier Thill. The 20-year-old has to play a major role to sees his side go through to the next round of the qualifier.


Rangers- 2/9

Draw- 5/1

Progres Niederkorn- 9/1
