Our prediction: Lyon v Rangers

Rangers can enter this match without pressure, there's nothing to gain or lose in terms of qualification.

However, a winning mentality in the early days of Van Bronckhorst's reign is essential for their chances this term.

He will demand a big performance against a big team to prove his men can step up in the knockouts. They may not get a favourable result, but expect a good showing.

Our prediction: Lyon 2-1 Rangers (15/2 at bet365)
