Brøndby vs Rangers: Match preview
After a generally comfortable victory on matchday three, will Rangers beat Brøndby again?
A fortnight ago, these two met at Ibrox, both searching for their first victories of this Europa League campaign.
It was clear to all that the Scottish Champions were superior to their Danish counterparts and they took the lead after just 17 minutes.
James Tavernier’s perfect corner headed home by Leon Balogun.
Not long after, the visitors should’ve equalised when Andrija Pavlović skied over the bar after Mikael Uhre’s pull-back.
But, on the half hour mark, Rangers doubled their lead in bizarre circumstances.
Joe Aribo’s cross found Alfredo Morelos, his header was saved by Thomas Mikkelsen, only for Kemar Roofe to stab in the rebound.
Roofe appeared to be miles offside but was actually played on by Henrik Heggheim’s trailing right foot so, the goal was given.
Morelos came close to a third, hitting the post, before an uneventful second half followed, in which Rangers, somehow, were not awarded a penalty.
Sigurd Rosted clearly brought down Aribo but referee Fran Jović disagreed and waved play on.
Nevertheless, 2-0 in finished in Glasgow’s West End; a very disappointing result for the visitors.
Brøndby are bottom of this group on just one point having held Sparta Praha to a scoreless draw before losing 3-0 at Parc Olympique Lyonnais.
But just being involved is an achievement in itself.
This is just the third time the Boys from Vestegnen have qualified for a UEFA group stage after the Champions League in 1998 and the UEFA Cup in 2005.
To get here, Brøndby won their first Danish Superligaen title for 16 years last season, ending up one point above Midtjylland.
The defence of their title isn’t going particularly well though.
Niels Frederiksen’s side narrowly beat Viborg 1-0 on Saturday, Christian Cappis with an 88th minute winner.
But, having won just five of 14 league matches to date, they are sixth, 13 points behind the leaders.
Will a big European victory spark them into life?
Will Rangers win in Denmark?
As for Rangers, despite making the worst possible start to this group phase campaign, their destiny is back in their own hands.
The Gers lost their first two matches in Group A, 2-0 to Olympique Lyonnais and then 1-0 at Generali Česká pojišťovna Arena to Sparta Praha.
But, that comprehensive 2-0 win over Brøndby at Ibrox means they’re off the bottom and believe they’ll reach the knockout phase.
If Steven Gerrard’s side win this one and then beat Sparta Prague at home on matchday five, second place could be sown up before they travel to France.
This is Rangers’ fourth successive season in the Europa League group stages, never failing to make it here under Gerrard.
Their run ended at this juncture in 2018/19 but, in the subsequent two seasons, the Gers got all the way to the round of 16.
In all, Gerrard has been in charge for 102 European matches, losing just ten.
The only teams to beat them are Rapid Wien, Spartak Moskva, BSC Young Boys, Bayer Leverkusen, Malmö, Lyon and Slavia and Sparta Prague.
In their entire history, Rangers have never lost any of eight matches against Danish opposition, winning seven.
Most recently, they beat FC Midtjylland 7-3 in a third qualifying round tie in 2019, including a 4-2 victory in Herning.
A repeat of that 258 kms east in Brøndbyvester would be most welcome.
At the weekend, Rangers put in their best performance of the season so far, demolishing Motherwell 6-1 at Fir Park.
The hosts actually took the lead but, by half time, a James Tavernier volley and a Fashion Sakala header had them 2-1 in front.
After the break, Glen Kamara and Kemar Roofe got in on the act while Sakala scored twice more to complete a first ever career hat-trick.
This means the champion’s remain top of the Scottish Premiership, four points clear of Celtic, despite drawing three of their last five.
Will they now win in Denmark?
Brøndby team news vs Rangers
Niels Frederiksen’s side have played a back three/five in all 19 league and European games this season so will stick with that here.
They do have a problem in goal though as first-choice Mads Hermansen is injured.
So, 38 year old Thomas Mikkelsen will once again deputise.
He made his debut in a UEFA competition at Ibrox a fortnight ago in, what was, the 359th appearance of his journeyman career.
In front of him, Henrik Heggheim, Sigurd Rosted and captain Andreas Maxsø are a settled defensive trio; Rasmus Wikström is injured.
Paraguayan international Blas Riveros is back fit though so will start at left-wing-back.
In the middle, Christian Cappis could come into the XI after the American got the winner off the bench at the weekend.
Andrija Pavlović and Mikael Uhre were both rested on Saturday but are both likely to return in place of Marko Divković and Simon Hedlund.
Will Brøndby claim their first European win, excluding qualifiers, for 16 years?
Rangers team news vs Brøndby
Steven Gerrard meanwhile has found a largely settled XI in recent weeks, featuring a core group of players he can trust.
39 year old Allan McGregor made just his fifth Premiership appearance of the season at the weekend.
But, he’ll start here having started all six European games he’s been available for so far this campaign.
In defence, with Filip Helander injured and Jack Simpson not in the Europa League squad, there’s limited options in the middle.
So, Connor Goldson will once again partner Leon Balogun who scored in the reverse fixture.
Borna Barišić appears to be first-choice on the left again, ahead of Calvin Bassey, while James Tavernier was back to his fantastic best at Fir Park.
In midfield, Glen Kamara will return after a one-match ban in UEFA competitions so, having scored on Sunday, will start here.
The Finn is likely to be joined by Steven Davis and Joe Aribo in the middle, the latter sparkled when Brøndby visited Glasgow.
This would see John Lundstram and Scott Arfield miss out.
In attack, Gerrard does have some decisions to make.
Kemar Roofe could come into the side but Fashion Sakala’s hat-trick at the weekend will surely see him keep his place on the other flank.
All four of Sakala’s Rangers goals, since joining from K.V. Oostende, have come against Motherwell, something he’ll look to change here.
This would see Ianis Hagi remain on the bench, sat next to Scott Wright; Ryan Kent is still injured.
Rangers’ record European goalscorer Alfredo Morelos will lead the line though, looking for his 102nd goal for the club, 25 of which have come in UEFA competition.
Will the Light Blues win in Denmark?
