The third-placed Bundesliga heavyweights stand in the Gers way of a place in the final as the Ibrox club aim to go one step further than their 2008 UEFA Cup Final defeat to Zenit St. Petersburg in Manchester.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side were taken the distance by Braga in the previous round before eventually seeing off the Portuguese outfit deep into extra-time.

They will hope to keep the tie alive in the Red Bull Arena before facing Leipzig at Ibrox in the return leg the following week.

Both sides have made great strides since their head-to-head in a winter friendly five years ago, during which Rangers slumped to a 4-0 defeat with ex-Celtic playmaker Oliver Burke on the scoresheet.

Domenico Tedesco’s men will provide formidable opposition after they defeated Atalanta 3-1 on aggregate to reach the semi-finals, with £58million Frenchman Christopher Nkunku playing a leading role.

Regarded as one of the brightest young prospects in European football, the 24-year-old attacking midfielder is a player Rangers will have to monitor very closely over both legs.
