Player Ratings, fan reaction & more: Rangers fall late as Angelino winner hands advantage to RB Leipzig


Result

A stout defensive display on the part of Scottish heavyweights Rangers ultimately proved to be in vain this evening, as the Light Blues were put to the sword by a frankly superior RB Leipzig outfit.

The two sides went toe-to-toe at the Red Bull Arena a short time ago, aware that securing a first-leg advantage could prove absolutely vital in ultimately booking a spot in the Europa League's showpiece occasion.

And, when all was said and done, it was the evening's hosts who emerged with precisely that.

A solitary goal proved all that was needed to put Rangers on the back foot ahead of next week's return leg in Glasgow, lashed home by former Manchester City man Angelino in stunning fashion five minutes from time:

In truth, though, had it not been for repeated profligacy on the part of Leipzig's attackers, then the result could have proven far more lopsided.

Nevertheless, it remains all to play for in front of what will no doubt prove a raucous Ibrox crowd a week from today.
