Rangers are favorites to win on the night, but last season’s Europa League finalists have a 2-0 deficit to overturn from the first leg to win the tie as a whole.
Union Saint-Gilloise demonstrated the threat they carry in front of goal in front of their own fans in the first leg, but Ibrox has a reputation for being one of the most difficult away stadiums to visit in Europe.
