Rangers news: RB Leipzig think they've done enough to reach final - Derek Rae

Rangers will welcome RB Leipzig to Ibrox tomorrow evening for the second leg of their Europa League semi-final with a tip to Seville awaiting the winner.

The Bundesliga side hold a slender 1-0 advantage from the first leg last week thanks to a stunning volley from left-back Angelino but the Light Blues will fancy their chances on home turf.

Bundesliga expert and commentator Derek Rae has shared the feeling around Germany ahead of the return leg and why they will relish the occasion tomorrow evening.

“The general feeling in Germany is they have probably done enough to get through the tie,” Rae said to the Daily Record.

“But I don’t think anybody feels that it will be a cakewalk because there is definitely respect for Rangers, having knocked out Dortmund and above all, for the Ibrox atmosphere and that 12th man that it can be – and has been for them during this campaign.

“But Leipzig’s players can perform in intimidating atmospheres. They won in Dortmund, as Rangers did, and silenced the crowd in the first game when full houses were allowed back.

“But the atmosphere is something Leipzig are aware of. The first thing Germans talk about when they are drawn against Rangers or Celtic is the atmosphere but not in a fearful way. They relish the opportunity of being part of that occasion.

They’ve no idea

They think they know what the atmosphere is going to be like tomorrow evening at Ibrox but they are going to be in for quite the shock when they walk out for the warm-up.

The noise they have heard on the television does not compare to actually being in the middle of the cauldron for real and some of the younger folk in the Leipzig side are going to crumble.

Borussia Dortmund’s atmosphere is more carnival-esque than a normal football game so going to the Signal Iduna Park and winning isn’t actually as difficult as it might sound.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side brushed them aside with ease in their own backyard and then the Germans couldn’t pull it back n Glasgow.

Ibrox is far more hostile than any German ground could ever be and the shock factor the away side will have when they arrive is going to frighten them to death.
