Rangers travel to Portuguese giants Benfica for the pick of this week's Europa League fixtures.


The Scottish side are enjoying an incredible run of form, winning their last nine games on the bounce – including two wins out of two in European competition.

However, in Benfica they face a different beast entirely, and will have to be at their absolute best to extend that incredible run.

The Portuguese juggernauts have racked up a perfect record in both domestic and continental competition this season and are certainly the favourites going into the clash.

With Benfica steamrolling anyone and everyone in their path, Rangers' streak is in real danger of being brought to a shuddering halt.

Benfica v Rangers team news

Benfica: The hosts will have to make do without the injured trio of Jean Clair Todibo, Andre Almeida and Alejandro Grimaldo.

With their perfect record on the line, expect a largely unchanged side from the one that made light work of Standard Liege.

Rangers: Gerrard has a near fully fit squad to call upon with only Nikola Katic sidelined with a long term ligament injury.

The Scots are not expected to make many changes from the side that has been winning for fun over the last few weeks.

Our prediction: Benfica v Rangers

With both sides riding the crest of an incredible wave of form, Thursday's clash promises to be explosive.

Rangers go in as the underdog but, after a fantastic start to the season, you wouldn't want to rule out an upset away-day win.

While Gerrard will be desperate for his side to continue on their merry way, a result in Lisbon could prove to be a bridge too far.

Our prediction: Benfica 2 - 1 Rangers
