Steven Gerrard’s side beat Braga’s Primeira Liga opponents Porto at some level of the group stage.

The Ibrox outfit will most seemingly be at house first on 20 February, with the return in Braga six days later.

“I specialize in it be a terrific plan for us. Every game is going to be animated, you peer on the good English groups as effectively and we knowing we may per chance well bag drawn against one in all them.”

“Our performances in Europe were high drawer. We had been unhappy to not high the group and had been kicking ourselves a puny bit, nonetheless the higher image sooner than the group began, getting through used to be the foremost aim.”

Rangers and group winners Porto done sooner than Switzerland’s Young Boys and Dutch side Feyenoord to realize the knockout stage.

Braga this season in the Europa League are taking half in brilliantly. Within the group stage they had been by some distance the finest group against grand opponents. They don’t appear to be doing so effectively domestically, dropping parts where they mustn’t.

Mountainous players – Joao Palhinha, the Horta brothers Andre and Ricardo, Bruno Viana and Nuno Sequeira. So Rangers must watch out. Braga believe some very correct technical players.

The largest dispute about this group is the game dynamic they keep on the self-discipline – the total lunge and the streak and the contrivance they care for the ball. Braga is a particular group from Porto. Porto straggle and play delivery and the total time play as favourites. Braga will capacity the game in a particular contrivance. Rangers will want to straggle and in parts of the game must boss it.
