Rangers FC

Rangers are into the semi-finals of the Europa League after they beat Sporting Braga 3-1 and 3-2 on aggregate at the Ibrox Stadium.

The Rangers were dominant throughout the game as they dominated ball possession against Sporting Braga. The first leg between these two teams ended in favour of Sporting Braga as they took a narrow 1-0 victory.

The hosts took the lead in the second minute of the game when Tavernier scored from close range to tie the aggregate score. They quickly doubled their lead, but the goal from Roofe was ruled out by the VAR. 

However, just before the break, Roofe was brought down in the box by Tormena, so he was sent off and Rangers got a penalty. Tavernier stepped up and scored, giving the hosts the lead.

The hosts went into the first half with a comfortable two-goal lead. Late in the second half, Braga scored a goal, and the aggregate score was again on level terms. 

The 90 minutes ended in a draw, so the game went into extra time. In the 101st minute, Kemar Roofe stepped up and scored the winning goal for his team.
