But there can be no presumption that things will be smooth sailing for the Glasgow side after a rollercoaster 90 minutes in Belgium last week.

Antwerp and Rangers played out one of the most exciting Europa League fixtures of the season so far, sharing seven goals in a thriller that sets up high expectations for the second leg.

Steven Gerrard’s men continued their unbeaten streak following the win in Belgium with a 4-1 result over Dundee United in the Scottish Premiership at the weekend.

And with Antwerp now winless in their last four outings, the hosts are certainly the favourites to progress to the last-16.

Our prediction: Rangers v Antwerp

Rangers rode their luck at times in Belgium but came away with the win and an aggregate advantage to take into Thursday’s clash, so there is some room for error here.

Yet without Tavernier and Roofe, boss Gerrard will want to keep things steady in the opening throes.

Antwerp know they need to beat Rangers by two goals or better to progress and Lamkel Ze’s return will boost their forward arsenal. But Rangers should have enough in the tank over 90 minutes to edge the visitors.

Our prediction: Rangers 2-1 Antwerp (7/1 at bet365)
