Abel Ruiz’s first half goal was enough to give Braga a slight advantage going into the second leg at Ibrox, a game which saw just 12 shots in total and Rangers failing to hit the target.
The Scottish side, however have scored 2+ goals in each of their last four Europa League home games and will be hoping to keep the record going against Braga, who have conceded eight goals in their five away games in the competition.
It’s away from home where Braga have struggled so far this campaign, losing three of their five on the road and their only away win coming in the group stages against Ludogorets. Rangers, on the other hand are unbeaten in their last four home games in the competition, winning three and drawing one, a 2-2 result against Dortmund.

Rangers vs Braga: Match Stats
Rangers will again be without top goalscorer Alfredo Morelos who has been ruled out for the rest of the season. No player has scored more Europa League goals in the last three seasons than the Colombian (13).
They will be relying on Kemar Roofe to fill the void, who did just that at the weekend with a hat-trick against St.Mirren.
Ricardo Horta has been directly involved in eight goals in 11 Europa League games for Braga this season, with no other player being involved in more.
The Portuguese forward will be Braga’s main threat, especially with the departure of Galeno who scored six goals in six Europa League games before leaving for Porto.
