Rangers vs Benfica live stream: How to watch Europa League fixture online and on TV tonight

The pair played out a thrilling draw in their first meeting in the group stage, with Rangers recovering from a disastrous start to take a two-goal lead, only for Darwin Nunez to break Scottish hearts with a last-gasp equaliser in Portugal. 

Steven Gerrard’s side are level on points with Benfica at the top of the group, with two wins and one draw, and a victory tonight would put Rangers in pole position to finish as the No 1 seed heading into the knockout rounds. 

Rangers have been in imperious form domestically and remain unbeaten this season. They have scored 12 goals in their last two league fixtures alone while Benfica have lost their last two games in succession.
