Progres Niedercorn vs Rangers
Europa League qualifier
Date: Tuesday, 4th July 2017
Kick off at 18:45 UK/ 19:45 CET
Venue: Stade Josy Barthel.
Progres Niedercorn showed a great resistance in the first leg as they left the legendary Ibrox Stadium with only a single goal in their net in the first leg of their Europa League tie with famous Rangers.
The main challenge for the Portuguese manager Pedro Caixinha ahead of the rematch will be to motivate his lads to give their best because the tie is far from over and a potential defeat would have catastrophic consequences for him and the team in general.
Progres are far from being the best team in Luxembourg as they came fourth at the end of the season in the last term of their domestic league.
Nothing could have announced such a strong resistance from Progres who did not start their preparation period before the mid-June.
They suffered a catastrophic 1-5 defeat to their fellow rivals Fola Esch before playing a 1-1 draw with Differdange 03.
Rangers, who are back in European competitions for the first time since 2012 when they were relegated to the fourth tier of the Scottish football, signed a host of new players for this season.
The list includes Eduardo Herrera, Carlos Pena, Fabio Cardoso, Alfredo Morelos, Daniel Candelas and Dalcio. Also, Niko Kranjcar is back in the team after skipping most of the last season due to injury.
Progres Niedercorn vs Rangers: Head to head
