RANGERS will resume their Europa League campaign on Thursday night as Steven Gerrard's men head to Germany for the second leg of their last-16 tie against Bayer Leverkusen.

Peter Bosz's side won the first leg at Ibrox 3-1 before football was brought to a shuddering halt as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, with Rangers' 1-0 win over Aberdeen last weekend the team's only competitive fixture since.

Bayer completed their Bundesliga season in that time, chalking up a fifth-place finish, as well as losing out 4-2 to Bayern Munich in the German Cup final.

The winner of the last-16 tie will advance to the quarter-finals of the competition, where the remaining fixtures will be played over a single leg in a mini-tournament format in Germany.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of the match.

Where is the game being played?

The match will take place behind closed doors at Leverkusen's BayArena.

What time is kick-off?

The game is scheduled to get under way at 5:55pm (UK time) on Thursday 6 August.

Is it on TV?

Yes. BT Sport 2 will be showing the game live, with their coverage beginning at 5:15pm. Additionally, subscribers to the broadcaster can stream the fixture via their app.

What are the pre-match odds?

Given their first-leg success, the home side are the heavy favourites to progress to the final eight. The Germans are the odds-on favourites to win the match and can be backed at around 8/13. If you fancy Gerrard's side to cause an upset though, most bookies are offering odds of around 17/4 for the visitors to win on the night.

What's the latest team news?

None of Rangers' latest signings will be eligible to play in the tie, meaning we won't see Kemar Roofe, Cedric Itten, Leon Balogun, Calvin Bassey or Jon McLaughlin in the squad. Ianis Hagi will be available, having been registered in January when he arrived on loan initially, while Andy Firth, Filip Helander and Jordan Jones have also been added to the European roster.

Jermain Defoe will miss out with a hamstring injury, and Finland internationalist Glen Kamara is suspended for the second leg.

The hosts will be missing out on a few players as well, with Tin Jedvaj and Paulinho missing out through injury while Nadiem Amiri is in quarantine and will not attend the match. The big news for Leverkusen is that Kai Havertz is expected to play, while 17-year-old midfielder Florian Wirtz has been added to the European squad.
