Rangers de Morelos, rival of Borré in final

Rangers de Morelos, rival of Borré in final

A stadium like Ibrox Park and a team like rangersnot long ago in the Third Division of Scottish football, they deserved a joy like this Thursday, an unforgettable day for the Protestant fans as they went back to the RB Leipzig (3-1) and play their first European final in twelve years.

Champions of the Cup winners of Europe in 1972, the Scots will have the chance to reach the final of the UEFA lost, in 2008 against the Zenit Saint Petersburgin Seville next May 18, thanks to a night of magic in Ibrox. An evening in which a team without strikers in the return leg managed to build up the 1-0 lead and defeated Leipzig 3-1, which did not live up to their favorite role.

When Gio clung to Ibrox Park as the way to get through the tie, he wasn’t kidding. The stadium created a barrage of noise that raised the level of a Rangers who had no shortage of forwards to believe a comeback was possible. Without Alfredo Morelos or Kemar Roofethe Dutch coach reconstructed the attack as best he could, so that eventually the usual one appeared, the captain, James Tavernier.

Kamara dove to retrieve a ball stuck to the tire, during the ball from the Germans. He got it and mounted the transition, with Ryan Kent enter the area and see the entrance to Tavernier at the far post. The pass wasn’t the most aesthetically pleasing in the world, not even on the verge of a shot, but it came just in time for Tavernier to push it into the net. His seventh goal in this Europa League is a lateral. They all made it into the qualifiers.

It was the perfect start for Rangers, who quickly increased their income. A double blow to Leipzig, which was a favorite and was destroyed in minutes. Wright, within the area, received from behind and saw the appearance of Kamara in front. He handed him the ball and he first connected the ball to the interior with a curved shot to the tension of the post.

The penalty, in 20 magical minutes, could have reached another level, but Aribo inexplicably missed a volley in the small area all alone.

Leipzig was minimized. A team that this season won the . has won Manchester City and that has players of the caliber of Christopher Nkunku and Dani Olmo was unable to find a way to break the Scottish pressure. His match was a drama. Horrible. To the point that in the 70th minute they didn’t count a single shot on target that would pose a minimal threat.

And then, as if they flipped a switch, they were awakened by a play. A one-on-one failed, which was followed by a cross from Angeliño that sent Nkunku into the net. The Germans spread their wings and saw McGregor’s goal, but without tusks, without having only five minutes of dominance.

They didn’t take advantage of the fizz and confusion of the target and paid for it. Ten minutes before the end, Kent poisoned a center that Gulacsi had swallowed. They could barely make it over the goal line to drop it dead John Lundstram who, behind an empty door, unleashed delirium in Glasgow. 3-1, comeback draw and that of Van Bronckhorst They play the final in Seville. A night for history in Ibrox Park, a well deserved night.
